Andrew Luck (shoulder) was a full participant in Monday's practice, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.
Luck has missed the Indianapolis Colts ' past two games while dealing with a shoulder issue, but appears in line to return to his starting position for Sunday night's game against the Patriots. Although his practice involvement as the week unfolds will still have to be monitored, Luck's full participation Monday bodes well for him being ready for Week 6.
Andrew Luck (shoulder) is inactive for Thursday's game in Houston, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.
Luck threw the ball around during pregame warmups, but he wasn't expected to play. Matt Hasselbeck, who has been sick all week, will get the start at quarterback.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport indicates that while Andrew Luck (shoulder) is slated to throw pre-game, Matt Hasselbeck (illness) is expected to start at QB for the Indianapolis Colts in Thursday night's game against the Texans.
According to Rapoport, Hasselbeck "flew to Houston planning to start," a notion echoed by ESPN's Adam Schefter, who relays via a source that Hasselbeck (who is still feeling under the weather) is on track to start the contest. We'll continue to monitor the situation as Thursday's kickoff approaches, but it appears as though the Colts are inclined to play it safe with Luck in Week 5, presumably with an eye toward having him available for the team's Oct. 18 contest against the Patriots.
Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck (shoulder) is officially listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Houston Texans .
Luck's official questionable listing is to be expected after he missed this past Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars and was limited at practice during the Colts' current short week.
Meanwhile, Week 4 starter Matt Hasselbeck (illness) was noted to be a full practice participant Wednesday, but is also listed as questionable, nonetheless.
Per ESPN's Mike Wells' sources, the plan is for Luck to start Thursday's game, though such an outcome may not be confirmed until the Colts' Week 5 inactives are released on Thursday.
With Matt Hasselbeck bothered by an illness, Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck (shoulder) took most of the first-team snaps at Tuesday's practice, according to the team's website.
Between Hasselbeck's illness and the fact that it was a light practice, Luck's dominance of the snaps doesn't carry much significance.
Colts coach Chuck Pagano said Luck is trending in the right direction, but Pagano also suggested that the team won't push things. Even after Monday's optimistic reports, Luck may be headed for a game-time decision Thursday against the Houston Texans .
