Ballard told reporters Luck would practice without limitations and take the team's starting snaps in camp with a dose of built-in days off. The GM also confirmed Luck would play in the preseason, if not the exhibition opener.
Asked about Luck's arm, Ballard confirmed that Indy's back-from-the-void starter is "throwing the ball pretty well," per Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star.
Other injuries we're tracking on this Friday:
- Also out of Indy, Ballard noted that safety Malik Hooker would open camp on the physically unable to perform list after undergoing knee surgery to repair a torn ACL. The team expects Hooker back in the first half of August, per Bowen.
- Meanwhile, fellow Colts safety Clayton Geathers is likely to hit the PUP, too, after undergoing a knee procedure. Ballard called the defender about "80 percent" healed.
