The Andrew Luck injury saga took a quick hiatus for the 2018 season before bursting back onto the scene this offseason. It looks like the saga will continue even further, as the Colts still even don't know if their superstar quarterback will be on the field for Week 1.

Luck has practiced sparingly during training camp because of what was categorized as a calf injury, but owner Jim Irsay explained early Tuesday Luck is dealing with a bone issue in his lower leg.

But... is that all? There's got to be more to the Andrew Luck injury drama, right?

Luck has experienced pain all offseason, and as a result, his status for the season is up in the air. He bounced back from a shoulder injury to dominate the league last season and lead the Colts to a playoff win. Now, what was once an issue concerning his calf has evolved into those dreaded three words.

High. Ankle. Sprain.

The team expected Luck to lead them deeper into the playoffs this year and build off the success from last year. The Colts have one of the better rosters in the league, but it's hard to see them making noise in the AFC without their franchise quarterback.

Luck's availability goes a long way towards the Colts' success. Indianapolis can only last so long without its captain at the helm.
