INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Colts quarterback Andrew Luck will not practice this week after developing soreness in his throwing shoulder.
Luck had been throwing every other day the past two weeks. But general manager Chris Ballard told reporters Wednesday that trainers and doctors shut down Luck after he received a cortisone shot.
The three-time Pro Bowler will miss his seventh consecutive game Sunday when Jacksonville (3-3) visits Lucas Oil Stadium.
Luck had surgery in January for a partially torn labrum in his throwing shoulder and didn’t return to the practice field until two weeks ago. But he increased his velocity last week.
Ballard did not say when Luck may return to practice
Without Luck, Indy (2-4) has struggled offensively.
