The move was expected. Had the Colts not taken the star quarterback off PUP, he would have missed the first six games of the season.
On Saturday, the Colts swung a trade for New England backup quarterback Jacoby Brissett, sending former first-round pick Phillip Dorsett to the Patriots. With eight days before the Colts open their season against the Los Angeles Rams, Scott Tolzien could start the season under center, if Luck isn't cleared to play and Brissett isn't up to speed on short notice.
Luck coming off PUP gives Indy a brief sigh of relief, but the situation for the franchise star remains murky.
