Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (ankle) worked out on the field before the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 17, and appeared to be moving around well.
Huddle Up: Luck is still uncertain for Week 1, so fantasy players will need to continue to keep an eye on his status. He is a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues when he is healthy, but players may want to draft a strong No. 2 quarterback in case Luck misses a few games.

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (ankle) continues to be sidelined because an ankle issue, but the Colts have guarded optimism about Luck's availability for Week 1.
Huddle Up: Luck has missed most of training camp because of the injury and probably is considered questionable for Week 1 at this point. He is a risky option in fantasy leagues at this point because of the injury but is a No. 1 fantasy quarterback when healthy.

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (ankle) is unlikely to play in the preseason due to an ankle issue, according to general manager Chris Ballard Tuesday, Aug. 13. Ballard said he's not ready to say the regular-season opener is in jeopardy due to the injury and Luck will continue rehabbing.
Huddle Up: This is not good news for a consensus top-five fantasy quarterback. The breaks should be pumped on drafting Luck for now, who is currently being selected in the fifth round on average in standard leagues. This situation will need to be monitored through the rest of the preseason to see if he's at least able to return to practice.

Updating previous reports, Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (calf) is dealing with a 'small bone issue,' and it's nothing to do with his Achilles', according to owner Jim Irsay.
Huddle Up: There is good news and some cause for concern there. Luck's status for the season opener still seems promising, but we've been here before. Luck is knocking on the door of the elite tier in fantasy.

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (calf) will not participate in the next three practices, according to head coach Frank Reich.
Huddle Up: Luck has been dealing with this calf injury for most of the offseason and training camp but there is several weeks before the start of the regular season. Fantasy players should continue to monitor the situation, but Luck should be a No. 1 quarterback if healthy.

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (calf) missed his seventh straight practice Tuesday, Aug. 6, due to a strained left calf and is fully expected to not play in Thursday's preseason opener - or maybe at all during the preseason - but head coach Frank Reich is keeping a level head. 'If I learned anything - and I learned a lot from Tony Dungy, working with him - he literally never flinched,'' Reich said. 'Even when our best players got hurt, you would look at him and you would think it was just ... he was never overly concerned. ... I just think that's important.'' Reich expects his starter to be ready for the regular-season opener.
Huddle Up: The injury is completely unrelated to the shoulder issue which caused Luck to miss the entirety of the 2017 campaign, eliminating any concern, there. Luck requires monitoring but his stock as a top-three fantasy quarterback doesn't seem to be in doubt at this time.

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (calf) told NBC Sports' Peter King he has no doubts about being ready to play in Week 1 against the Los Angeles Chargers.
'I certainly believe I will (be ready). That's certainly the goal. At times I do worry about it. It can be frustrating. The arc of an injury, whether it's a big surgical one or something you're rehabbing through. But no, because I've improved. Maybe I'm not improving as fast as I want and missing things is no fun. It eats at you. But I do know at the end of the day if I'm getting the most out of myself, if I'm being the best I can that day, then that's what I need to do,' Luck said.
Huddle Up: It certainly sounds like he has some doubt, even if it is borne out of frustration. Either way, the Colts are doing the right thing by giving Luck some more time to get through his injury. Owners should probably delay their worry unless he's not ready for the dress rehearsal game in about three weeks. If and when he gets past this issue, he's a high-end QB1 in fantasy.

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (calf) will miss the next three practices, according to head coach Frank Reich.
Huddle Up: Luck has missed around a week of practice because of his calf injury and will miss at least a few more days. He should be considered a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues, but fantasy players should monitor the situation to see if Luck's injury is more serious than initially believed.

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (calf) will not participate in practice Saturday, Aug. 3.
Huddle Up: The Colts can be cautious with Luck since Week 1 is over a month away. Luck is coming off a terrific 2018 season and will be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback again in 2019 if he can stay healthy.

Updating previous reports, Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (calf) will miss a couple of training-camp practices as he deals with a nagging calf strain, but Luck said Tuesday, July 30, that surgery hasn't been discussed. 'The nature of it is a calf strain,' Luck said. 'I say lower leg because I feel pain in my ankle area. I've had images and X-rays and everything, and my Achilles is not at extra risk. There (are) no tears or swelling or anything that's indicated.'
Huddle Up: This is worrisome as it's lingered since late April, but unless it's still an issue a couple weeks into August, keep Luck ranked among the top three or four fantasy QBs available.
