How the heck did he injure his ankle this close to preseason?  (I presume this isn't a lingering injury from last season that should have been taken care of sooner...) 

Someone should have wrapped him in bubble wrap starting July 1st.

I believe it is from an April injury, which obviously is not recent meaning quite a long recovery time.    Has me worried that a few more weeks will make a difference.

I've come to accept that Luck is injury prone. Maybe it's just really bad luck, but it seems pretty constant. I don't remember ever hearing about him being injured at Stanford, but Harbaugh was pretty hush hush on injuries, iirc. I hope this doesn't get in the way of him achieving his full potential. He's 29 years old and in the peak of his potential. Hopefully he can get healthy and the Colts can build a strong team around him to make a run.

Luck injured his thumb and missed the Sun Bowl, but otherwise has been pretty fortunate injury-wise at Stanford.  He also played behind one of the most impenetrable offensive lines in pass protection.  I think there was a year where he was sacked twice.... in the entire season.

I do recall that his sack rate was incredibly low which was a combination of a great OLine, his mobility, his pocket presence, and an offense that didn't run a lot of long developing plays. I worry the Colts have broken him to some degree. Hopefully the fears are unfounded.

I wish your choice of present perfect tense had been deliberate and he were coming back for a fifth year soon... ;D

Luck got the sh#t kicked out of him for 5 years with Indy. Grigson did darn near nothing to solidify the o-line. Ballard, fortunately, has worked to do that. Hopefully it’s not too late.

Luck's situation is more proof that Elway did the right thing holding out, and one only need to remember what happened to Plunkett in New England.  He almost ended up with no career period due to injuries.  If you are a top QB taken by a team with a porous offensive line time to think seriously about holding out for a trade.  Not sure it would work now days.
