NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported the Colts' quarterback won't practice Wednesday and will simply continue to throw on the side and condition.
Luck has been out since suffering the lacerated kidney in Week 9. He was expected to miss two to six weeks due to the injury. We've now hit week five.
Rapoport reported over the weekend that owner Jim Irsay pegged Week 15 as the target date for Luck's return.
First the quarterback will need to get back to practice.
Here's the rest of Wednesday's injury news:
There's a chance pass-rusher DeMarcus Ware plays Sunday, Kubiak said. He won't play 60 snaps when he returns, but he could see time on third downs. Broncos running back C.J. Anderson didn't practice due to an ankle injury, but told reporters he hopes to play. Fellow running back Ronnie Hillman (foot) also sat out. Tight end Vernon Davis and linebacker Danny Trevathan remain in the concussion protocol, Kubiak said.
- The Vikingswill be without four of their defensive starters Thursday night against the Cardinals. Linebacker Anthony Barr (groin/hand), defensive tackle Linval Joseph (foot) and safety Harrison Smith (knee/hamstring) have been ruled out. Also ruled out for Thursday are linebacker Brandon Watts (rib) and safety Andrew Sendejo (knee).
