Andrew Luck Activated From PUP List; On Active Roster To Begin Season

"I would say, again, the odds are most likely he probably won't open up against the Rams", Irsay said, "but let me be clear about it - in our minds it's something that we haven't ruled out". If Luck had remained on that list going into the regular season, he would've had to sit out the Colts' first six games of the year due to National Football League rules. The Colts have a season-altering decision to make in the coming days. Luck underwent surgery in January and his return timetable remains uncertain, but the Colts are tentatively expected to activate him from PUP before Week 1.

The Colts also added a few players to their roster, claiming Pierre Desir, Matt Hazel, Matt Jones, Kenny Moore II and Ian Silberman off waivers. He hasn't played or practiced since Week 17 of last season.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Luck passed his physical at 3:15 PM EST, so while it may have just been a mere formality, the Colts were cutting the deadline close a bit-at least time wise.

On paper, a trade involving a third-string quarterback during cut-down weekend might seem to be a minor transaction.

Luck has been on the PUP list since training Camp started at the end of July. He needed as many snaps as possible. Brissett started and played the entire game in the Patriots' final preseason game on Thursday.

The Colts can evaluate the 24-year-old Brissett, who has three years remaining on his contract, to see if he's their long-term answer as a backup to Luck after having Matt Hasselbeck and Tolzien, who is in the final year of his contract, for the past four seasons.
