Report: Colts QB Andrew Luck participated in practice Wednesday

Wednesday December 16th, 2015

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck participated in practice with the other quarterbacks on Wednesday, his first time back at practice since Nov. 6., reports Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star.

Luck participated in quarterback drills, but was held out for the later 11-on-11 potion of practice. His status will be known when Indianapolis releases its injury report later in the day, however, Luck indicated that his kidney has not fully healed. 

Despite having his starting quarterback back on the field, head coach Chuck Pagano reportedly does not plan to have Luck play on Sunday. 

Luck has spent the last six weeks recovering from a lacerated kidney he sustained in a 27–24 win over the Denver Broncos on Nov. 8. He has also spent time sidelined this season while dealing with a shoulder injury and cracked ribs.

In seven games this season, Luck has completed 55.3% of his passes, throwing for 1,881 yards, 15 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
