Colts QB Andrew Luck ruled out for Week 6 game vs. Titans
The Indianapolis Colts will continue to be without Andrew Luck after head coach Chuck Pagano ruled out the star quarterback for their Week 6 game on Monday Night Football against the Tennessee Titans, ESPN’s Mike Wells reports.
“You can write that,” Pagano said. “Safe as hell, he’s out.”
Luck is making progress, though. He finally returned to practice last week, the first time he’s been able to take part in practice since having right shoulder surgery in January. He practiced last Wednesday and Friday while having a rehab day last Thursday.
According to Pagano, the Colts plan to gradually increase Luck’s workload and get him closer to making his season debut.
With Luck still out, Jacoby Brissett will continue to start at quarterback for the Colts. Brissett is 2-2 as the starter this season, completing 60.6 percent of his passes with 997 passing yards, two passing touchdowns, and three interceptions. He also has 83 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns.
Brissett is coming off a career-high 314 passing yards to lead the Colts to a 26-23 overtime win over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.
The next opportunities for Luck to make his debut will come at home against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 7 and on the road against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 8.
