Andrew Luck Activated Off of PUP List

The Colts moved Luck from the PUP list to the active roster Saturday.

Andrew Luck has taken the next step in his return from surgery on his right shoulder.

The notion of Luck having to miss regular season games has begun to settle in amongst the Colts' fanbase as almost every reporter expects him to be on the sideline for their season opener against the Rams in Los Angeles. The Colts only activated him to keep their options open instead of automatically sidelining him for the first six weeks. Scott Tolzien is in line to start in Luck's presumed absence.

Luck has been on PUP since the start of training camp July 29, and the team had been consistent by indicating he would be taken off PUP by the end of the preseason.


Luck still hasn't practice since undergoing shoulder surgery in January, and no one in the Colts organization sounds sure about when he might return. At this point, there's no guarantee of him not missing multiple games.

That changed just eight days before the start of the regular season. The 2016 third-round pick saw action in three games, completing 34 of 55 passes for 400 yards in those games, and finishing 1-1 in his two starts for New England past year during Brady's suspension after backup QB Jimmy Garoppolo got hurt.

Brissett has some starting experience despite being third on the depth chart behind Tom Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo in New England. His rookie contract is up after this season, but all signs to the Patriots believing in him as the successor to Brady.
