Colts head coach Reich plans to play Luck in preseason opener
Expect to see Andrew Luck in game action sooner rather than later.
Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich reaffirmed how pleased the team is with its star quarterback's health, telling reporters Wednesday he "would plan on him playing in Seattle" in their first preseason game, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.
Reich confirmed there will be "no restrictions" when Luck practices, but the Colts signal-caller will have scheduled days off throughout training camp. The first of those breaks will come Saturday, allowing him to fully participate in Indianapolis' first padded team practice Sunday.
It's another step in the right direction for Luck. Colts general manager Chris Ballard cleared the three-time Pro-Bowler last week for camp.
Luck missed the 2017 season after a setback suffered following his 2016 shoulder surgery. During his last full campaign, Luck threw for 4,240 yards with 31 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.
