Andrew Luck could return in time to face 49ers

Andrew Luck could return in time to face 49ers

Luck's recovery from offseason shoulder surgery has been the dominant storyline since the Colts began training camp, with coach Chuck Pagano growing visibly exhausted of answering questions about Luck's projected return. The earliest Luck is expected to return is Week 5 against San Francisco.

Regardless, the Colts are sticking with their edict that there is no specific timeline or deadline. That conversation led to Luck paying a visit to Brees' physical therapist, Dr. Kevin Wilk, in conjunction and cooperation with the Colts' hierarchy and medical staff, sources said.

According to George Bremer of The Herald Bulletin, "Pagano added there are no guarantees and the team's doctors and trainers will have the final say on when Luck ultimately returns to the field". There might be a chance that he might be able to start some practice this week.

Kicker Harrison Butker signed off Panthers practice squad
Butker had an impressive preseason for the Panthers, hitting both field goal attempts while hitting all four extra point attempts. Butker, who was a seventh-round selection out of Georgia Tech , was bidding with Graham Gano for the Panthers' kicking job.

Even then, if the Colts are going to make a surprise run for the division title in 2017, they will need Luck back and at 100 percent here soon.

The Colts do not have Luck on the physically unable to perform list.

The Colts are 0-2 in Luck's absence, with Scott Tolzien and Jacoby Brissett at quarterback. Brissett, who the Colts acquired from New England on September 2, has started the past two games.
