INDIANAPOLIS — Andrew Luck will be back on the Colts’ practice field Thursday and Saturday this week.

Coach Chuck Pagano gave the update during a conference call Wednesday.

Pagano described Luck’s progression as “coming along good.”

The Colts’ quarterback returned to practice last Wednesday, the first time he had worked out with his teammates since having surgery on his throwing shoulder in January. So far, Luck has been limited to throwing every other day.

Indy (2-3) was off Tuesday and Wednesday as it prepares for Monday’s matchup at Tennessee.

In his latest update, Pagano said Luck’s strength was improving, but that he wouldn’t risk a setback by rushing his best player back too quickly.
