Colts QB Andrew Luck doesn't practice, "should be OK"

INDIANAPOLIS -- Colts quarterback Andrew Luck did not practice Wednesday because of a right shoulder and elbow injury, and coach Chuck Pagano did not say for sure that Luck will play against the Vikings on Sunday.

"[Luck] got whacked around pretty good [vs. Houston]. Should be OK," Pagano said. "Wait until the [doctors] and trainers go through the rehab process."

Luck suffered the injuries while taking a total of 13 hits against the Texans.

"Didn't feel as good after the game as you like, but again, it's December football," Luck said. "Nobody feels like they want to at this point of the year. You make sure you're ready to go on Sunday."

Injuries have been a constant theme for Luck over the past two seasons. He missed nine games in 2015 with rib, shoulder, kidney and abdominal strain injuries. Luck missed their Thanksgiving game against Pittsburgh with a concussion.

He has been listed on the Colts' practice report at least one day each week this season. He's been sacked 37 times this season, which is tied for the second most in the NFL.

"It hurts your soul not to be out there practicing, but obviously some things are done for the better of this team, yourself," Luck said. "Not practicing [Wednesday] was the right decision by those involved."
