Colts GM says Luck now has high-ankle problem

Jim Irsay: Luck's injury more than calf strain

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.

"We're three-and-a-half weeks away from regular season, so I'm not ready to say (Luck's regular-season opener is in jeopardy)", Ballard told reporters on a conference call Tuesday night.

As the calf injury for Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck continues to linger, owner Jim Irsay revealed that there is a little more to it than simply the calf.

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 that after the Durant thing, everyone's erring on the side of caution, but quite frankly this is not even in the Achilles tendon", Irsay said. "It's a bone. I'm not good at these things, but it's a small little bone".

"But he's doing very well". Then, as the team gathered for training camp and Luck continued to sit on the sideline, Irsay changed his prediction to early in the 2017 season.

Luck has been working with throwing guru Tom House.

The report emphasizes the difference between Luck's current calf injury and the shoulder issue that hampered him in the past.

Colts general manager Chris Ballard says he isn't sure if the injury will keep Luck out of the September 8 season opener against the Los Angeles Chargers.
