  • According to Mike Wells of ESPN, Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano still doesn’t have a timetable for quarterback Andrew Luck’s Luck has been sidelined with a shoulder injury since training camp began, leaving Scott Tolzien as the current starting quarterback.
  • Luck produced the best season of his career so far in 2016, grading at 91.6 which ranked fourth among quarterbacks in the NFL. Over the course of his five year career so far, Luck has graded below 81.4 just once.
  • What doesn’t help with Luck being dinged up, is that the Colts offensive line have allowed him to be under pressure so often. Luck was under pressure on 279 of his dropbacks in 2016, 16 more than Russell Wilson, who ranked second. Luck has delivered when under pressure, with his 5,602 passing yards under pressure ranking fifth among quarterbacks since 2012.
