Andrew Luck Misses Practice With Foot Injury

Aug 28, 2018 8:11 AM

Andrew Luck didn't practice Monday because of a "minor" foot injury suffered in Saturday's preseason game.

Frank Reich said Luck could practice on Tuesday and he'd be ready to go if the season started this weekend.

The Indianapolis Colts wrap up the preseason on Thursday, but it had already been determined that Luck would sit the contest out.

Luck suffered the injury when he scrambled for 15 yards before being caught from behind in the second quarter in the team's third preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers.

"Really, once you look back at that play, you're at the point of no return once you take it up inside," Reich said. "If you're going toward the boundary, that's one thing -- you can protect yourself. But once you kind of take it up the middle and there's a guy chasing you from behind, you're kind of committed to go finish that thing out. I think it was the right decision."
