Colts to hold Andrew Luck out of practice for another week
Andrew Luck’s lingering calf injury will cost him another week of practice as a precaution.
Indianapolis Colts coach Frank Reich said the team will hold their quarterback out of practice next week as he continues to nurse a sore calf.

The decision effectively rules Luck out of the Colts’ first preseason game, but he was never going to play in that game anyway.
Luck was still experiencing pain this week, and while nobody seems to think it’s serious, there’s also no reason to push him given his extensive injury history. The Colts will hope another week of rest will prove helpful, and if it does, expect to see Luck ramping up to full activity within a couple weeks. At this point, the expectation is still that he will be ready for Week 1.
