Jim Irsay wasn't super specific about Andrew Luck's timetable - he repeated there wasn't one - but did give somewhat of an update on the franchise quarterback's progress.

Here are the bullet points of Irsay's impromptu media gathering:
- Still no timetable for Andrew Luck's return (don't expect that to change, guys)
- Andrew Luck is throwing again, finally
- Luck starting Week 1 in Los Angeles is still on the table, or he may miss a game of two
- The Colts asked around about a veteran backup QB this offseason, but didn't like the price
Was that veteran quarterback Colin Kaepernick? No... at least not yet.
The one main takeaway seems to be that Luck will only miss a game or two, if he misses any time at all. So, the rumors about him starting the season on PUP seem to be out the window. Phew.
Four weeks until the real games begin.
