Andrew Luck’s return to being full-go?
It’s something Colts fans never saw in the final two months of the 2015 season.
Luck’s return though has a target date, one that marks the beginning of the team's 2016 offseason program.
“April 18th, he should be ready to roll,” Chuck Pagano said of Luck during this week’s NFL Combine.
Luck was the #22 QB through the first three weeks before hitting the injury report in Week 4 with a shoulder injury. By the time his season ended in Week 9, he was the #16 QB in total fantasy points and owned the #13 per game average. This was disappointing production given his top-overall finish in 2014 and his previous production (#8 in 2012, #6 in 2013). He should bounce back into the top 5 assuming he stays healthy.

Via Mike Chappel of IndySportsCentral.com, Colts coach Chuck Pagano said Luck will not play this week at Miami.
It’s not a surprise, as Luck recovers from a lacerated kidney. Pagano said he’d hold out the chance Luck could play in the regular season finale if he’s able to see him practice, the story said. With 40-year-old backup Matt Hasselbeck “beat up from the feet up” in Pagano’s words, it might come down to Charlie Whitehurst at some point, the story added.

Though Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay raised hopes that Andrew Luck could return from his lacerated kidney injury Sunday, when or if Luck will play again this season is in question, sources told ESPN.
Irsay had told NFL.com that he thought Luck should be able to play Sunday against the Houston Texans, but others in the Colts organization have not gotten any indication that that is close to happening at this time. As recently as last week, they did not expect Luck to be able to play against the Texans.
Luck told reporters Monday that his goal is to practice this week but that he doesn't feel 100 percent yet. He said he will play again this season.
Colts coach Chuck Pagano said he had "not heard anything from our trainers or doctors" on Luck practicing this week.
There seems to be a lot of varying reports within the organization. The Colts are handling Luck as carefully and cautiously as possible, the story said, and with good reason. Doctors know that Luck cannot risk elevating his heart rate because it would pump more blood through his kidneys, delaying the healing process, according to medical sources.
