NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported on NFL GameDay Morning on Sunday that Luck could make a return to the practice field this week in preparation of a Week 6 season debut.
"Nothing that has happened has given anyone any doubts that [Luck] will play this year," Rapoport reported. "And they did take him off the [physically unable to perform] list for a reason. They do think he will play before that window closes. So keep an eye on Week 6 -- that is against the Tennessee Titans when we could see Andrew Luck for the first time, which means he needs to practice soon. Keep an eye on the practice fields in Indiana this week, you may see Andrew Luck doing some work."
While Luck's return will certainly be cause for celebration among the Indy faithful, hopefully the team's playoff aspirations will still be very much in play when he comes back.
