The uncertainty surrounding Andrew Luck's status will be closely monitored as Week 1 of the season is almost here. Although he did show some progress over the weekend, the Colts released a somewhat troubling update on their quarterback.

Luck tried warming up on Saturday prior to the preseason clash between Indianapolis and Cleveland. His ankle injury didn't seem to affect him as he went through footwork drills.

However, it turns out that Luck isn't ready to practice in full with his team.

Frank Reich told the media on Tuesday that Luck will not practice this week. The reason is because of the battle between moving at full speed and dealing with the pain that comes with it.

Since Luck won't practice this week, his status for Week 1 is still in the air.

Indianapolis expects to know who will start at quarterback next Monday.

In the event that Luck isn't ready for the season opener, Jacoby Brissett would be the starter.

Brissett has experience as the Colts starting quarterback. He started 15 games in 2017, throwing for 3,098 yards and 13 touchdowns.

On Saturday, Brissett led the first-team offense and showed poise in the pocket.

While the Colts would obviously want to have Luck ready for the season opener, the team seems to be taking a cautious approach given his injury history.
