Colts' Reich: Luck will play 'a little bit more' than normal in preseason

Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich provided more information on the team's intention to have quarterback Andrew Luck play in the preseason opener in Seattle next Thursday.

"The plan is to play him a little bit more than he would normally if he’d had a normal year last year,” Reich said, according to Albert Breer of the MMQB. “But I don’t want to overreact. He’ll get enough snaps in, we’ll recreate enough out here in practice by the way we practice and the speed at which we practice, and all the situational stuff we practice.

"We’ll build a confidence (level) there. And sure, he needs to get his snaps, and maybe a little bit more. But I’m not gonna be dramatic with it."

Luck resumed throwing in mid-June after missing all of last year with a shoulder injury. He said then that he would "absolutely" play in Week 1 of the regular season.

Evidently, Reich and the rest of the coaching staff seem intent on having him fully warmed up by then.
