Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck will begin limited practice work Wednesday, head coach Chuck Pagano said, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network.

Meanwhile, Luck said he'll definitely play this season, though he didn't specify when. The quarterback also said that his January surgery was a posterior labrum repair, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

The team plans to have Luck do some work Wednesday, as he continues recovery from offseason shoulder surgery. The franchise quarterback will switch back to rehab Thursday and then practice again Friday. Both practice sessions will be comprised of individual drills.

The extremely gentle return to practice consisting of tossing the ball through the end zone is a small positive step toward Luck's gradual team involvement and eventual return to play.

Pagano also confirmed Luck won't play Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers.
