Jim Irsay: Luck's injury more than calf strain

Luck has proven himself to be a talented quarterback although he has had his fair share of injuries over his career.

Andrew Luck has yet to return to practice with what has been described as a minor Achilles or calf injury, but Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay shared some new information this week that has sent fans further into a panic.

Luck doesn't seem likely to play at all in the preseason, and his status for Week 1 of the regular season is very much up in the air.

Irsay did not specify what part of Luck's body the bone injury was taking place, and it is also not clear if this was the main injury all along or if this is issue is in addition to his calf injury.

Unless it wasn't Luck's calf, or his lower leg, or his ankle, or any type of muscle, but something else entirely? "I think after the (Kevin) Durant things (that) everyone's erring on the side of caution, but quite frankly this is not even in the Achilles tendon". The owner referred to it as "a small little bone".

"I feel very confident he's going to find a way through this thing".

Stay tuned for updates on Luck's injury as we will be sure to bring them to you. Irsay originally said late in 2016 that Luck would not need surgery to fix the torn labrum in his shoulder, an injury that had been plaguing him for more than a year, but he underwent the procedure in January 2017.

The Colts announced July 29 that Luck was going to stop practicing until he felt like his calf was 100 percent healthy.

The Colts open the regular season on the road at the Chargers, September 8.
