Colts owner insists Luck's slow comeback part of design

The Indianapolis Colts intend to stick to the long-term plan.

Even if it means going into the regular season without Andrew Luck.

While they believe their biggest investment will be completely healthy eventually and that Luck provides their best chance to win now and into the future, they're not going to rush Luck back.

And they're not looking for a quick fix after a demoralizing 24-10 preseason loss to the Detroit Lions on Sunday.

"I can't say unequivocally that he (Luck) will be ready for the Rams game," team owner Jim Irsay said. "But I can say I feel very confident that he will be ready to start the season."

Luck is on the Colts...
