Andrew Luck won't stay on PUP list — Colts GM

INDIANAPOLIS IN- AUGUST 13 Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck on the sidelines during the NFL preseason game between the Detroit Lions and Indianapolis Colts

There's no guarantee that Colts fans will see Luck in action any time soon, but it also gives the team greater flexibility-should Luck be able to return before Week 6.

The Indianapolis Colts haven't been willing to offer very much information about the health of Andrew Luck lately, but we did learn one thing: He'll definitely be on the active roster when the 2017 season begins after being removed from the PUP list on Saturday.

Of course, since he hasn't practiced or played in the preseason, that means he's nearly certainly not going to play in the regular season opener against the Rams on September 10. Tolzien has been working with the starters, but he had a sporadic training camp and preseason in leading the Colts to only 13 points in four preseason games.

During an interview on Thursday, Colts owner Jim Irsay didn't sound too optimistic that Luck would be on the field for his team's opener against the Rams in Los Angeles.

Irsay wouldn't confirm that Luck is out, but admitted it's likely he will spend the first weekend of the season on the sideline.

Still, it's unclear whether the North will ever act on its threat to fire missiles at the "advanced base of invasion". Pacific Command said the exercises were conducted in response to North Korea's recent missile launch.

"I will be better than I was coming into this", Luck said, via the team's official website. (Andrew) is a young guy, 12 to 14 to 16, maybe 18 years, I don't know, going forward (with the Colts).

When Luck originally underwent shoulder surgery back in January, Irsay said that the signal caller would be ready for the start of the regular season.

The moves came on a busy Saturday when the Colts trimmed their roster from 90 to 53 players.

Luck's current five-year, $122.9 million deal takes him through 2021.
