The Indianapolis Colts may get their first glimpse of quarterback Andrew Luck as soon as this week. Luck has missed the first three games of the regular season as he has been rehabilitating from offseason shoulder surgery.

Colts head coach Chuck Pagano acknowledged in Monday’s press conference that although Luck will miss the Colts fourth game of the season against the Seattle Seahawks, he still may get in some practice work.

This is a significant step forward in Luck’s return to the gridiron and supports the report that he is targeting a week 6 to make his 2017 debut. Pagano also recited the fact that his star quarterback will need time to practice before playing a game, and that he’s not guaranteeing Luck will practice this week, to temper expectations.

While it still appears that Luck is a few weeks away from playing, this news is refreshing to fans who have been used to no news. For now, the team will have to rely on Jacoby Brissett to get a victory in their next game against the Seahawks.
