Andrew Luck To See Some Scout Team Action This Week

Out since undergoing shoulder surgery back in January, Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is making slow progress. And on Thursday, for the first time since having off-season shoulder surgery, Indy's starting quarterback could sense the rehabilitation process was nearing its end.

"I trust my arm more today than I did yesterday", Luck said, "and I think that's how it has to be every day, every week going forward". He has a return date in mind but he's not going to share when that is.

Coach Chuck Pagano gave the update during a conference call Wednesday.

Now, though, things are ramping up. Luck was only involved in the individual drills of work last week. That changed October 4 when he started throwing some short passes.

"He'll have a specific route tree and pitch count, sort of like he had last week", Pagano said. "It'll be scripted to fit what we've designated as those throws".

With Luck out of action, Indianapolis heads into Monday's game with a 2-3 record.

Even with Luck missing the first five games, the Colts have stayed close in the AFC South. They're tied with Houston and Tennessee, one game behind division-leading Jacksonville. Luck has already been ruled out for Monday's game and the Colts still won't put a timetable on his return. "But we have to go out and do our job".

Two-time Pro Bowl cornerback Vontae Davis returned three weeks ago after missing the Colts' first three games with an injured groin. Tight end Jack Doyle is expected to play Monday after missing last week with a concussion and Clayton Geathers, a projected starter at safety, could start practicing next week after spending all season on the physically unable to perform list with a neck injury. "Can't wait to have him get back out there on the field with us".

It's unclear how soon Luck might play.

The long road back to the field is not over for Luck, but he admitted before beginning his second week of practice with the team that he can see the finish line approaching.

"It would be foolish", Luck said, "to start to get close to the finish line and skipping the little things".

"We are starting to get into environments where all the variables are not controlled, which is obviously football, to a certain degree", Luck said of his progression in practice.

"I think I do", he said.
