Andrew Luck 'Could' Start Colts' Season Opener vs. Rams, Says Jim Irsay

Indianapolis Colts fans are starting to get anxious about Andrew Luck and his surgically-repaired shoulder, but the team finally provided a positive update on Sunday.

The Colts played their first preseason game against the Lions on Sunday, and it became apparent that the team doesn't have any good option behind Luck at QB.

The biggest question for Irsay was whether Luck would be ready for the Colts' trip to Los Angeles to face the Rams in Week 1.

This statement was preceded by Colts general manager Chris Ballard saying Luck is stronger perhaps right now than he was all of previous year. Scott Tolzien went 2 for 5 for 24 yards, Phillip Walker went 9 for 20 for 86 yards, and Stephen Morris went 13 for 20 for 94 yards.

There had been rumblings that Luck could start the season on the PUP list, thus would be unable to play for at least six games.
