However that was not the case, and it was announced by Colts general manager Chris Ballard on Wednesday that Luck suffered a setback as he has soreness in the shoulder and was given a cortisone shot.

According to Ballard, Luck's recovery was coming along as scheduled before this week's complication. "We're just going to shut down the throwing right now to get this thing calmed back down". While Ballard wouldn't say how long the shutdown will last - "I don't think it'll be long... It's the soreness right now that we're dealing with and that we have to get through". That's why we never put a timeline on this.

NumberFire's models now expect Luck to return after the Colts bye in Week 12 and throw for 1,551.9 yards with 10.40 touchdowns and 8.3 interceptions while rushing 27.5 times for 124.2 yards and 0.51 touchdowns on the ground for the season. He did not want to speculate on whether Luck will play this season. He originally injured it in Week 3 of the 2015 season, then aggravated it in Week 2 of 2016 and spent at least one day a week on the injury report the rest of the season.

It was noted last week that Luck was making progress in his return.

Ballard said Wednesday Luck's rehab work is still "going well".

Jacoby Brissett, whom the Colts acquired via trade with New England on September 1, has started the last five games.
