Colts Andrew Luck Isn’t Ruled ‘Out’ Week 1 Yet, But It May Be Time To Panic

Don’t panic quite yet Colts fans, but maybe get a little worried? New developments are out on Andrew Luck’s injury and its not good or bad, but it’s not the best.

Source (USA Today) INDIANAPOLIS — The Colts believe they have found the source of the pain in Andrew Luck’s left calf and ankle.

Luck is dealing with an issue at the front of his ankle, high in the joint, that has been causing pain in his calf and lower leg, above the Achilles tendon.

Colts general manager Chris Ballard was not ready to say that Luck’s availability for the season opener against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sept. 8 is in jeopardy, but the Colts starting quarterback likely will not play in any of the three remaining preseason games.

“We’re just going to continue to rehab,” Ballard said. “We’re going to change some things up with his rehab, and then try to get moving forward.”

Luck first experienced pain in his calf in March. An MRI revealed a strain in the calf.

Two months later, Luck was still dealing with pain, both in the calf and the area directly below the muscle, above the ankle. The Colts took Luck to a specialist and put him through additional testing, X-rays and an MRI; the results led Indianapolis to continue the rehabilitation plan Luck had been pursuing.
