Moreover, it wouldn't be a surprise if the Colts decide to hold back Luck until training camp. Taking that approach would allow Luck plenty of time to be 100 percent healthy when considering the more than a month-long break between minicamp and the start of training camp in late July.
The Colts know Luck's health takes priority over no-contact install periods during OTAs and mandatory minicamp.
Here are other injuries we are monitoring Tuesday:
- The Colts lost rookie center Javon Patterson, the team's seventh-round pick, to a torn ACL, Reich announced. Patterson suffered the injury last week.
- Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden says quarterback Alex Smith is "recovering nicely" and expects him to be back sooner than anticipated.
- Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay participated in early drills Tuesday as he continues to recover from a right wrist fracture.
