Colts expect Luck to miss preseason with ankle area injury: The Colts believe lingering pain in Andrew Luck's lower left leg will likely force their starting quarterback to miss the rest of the preseason. They're still unsure about his availability for the Sept. 8 season opener against the Los Angeles Chargers. Colts general manager Chris Ballard said Tuesday additional testing revealed Luck appears to be suffering from an injury near the front of his ankle, something his previously diagnosed strained left calf might have exacerbated. "Honestly, I think it's a cumulative thing through the years. Andrew's had some issues with his left (ankle) for a while, so I think it's really a cumulative thing," Ballard told local reporters on a conference call. "We think we've found it. You hope you've found what the cause is. Is there a 100 percent guarantee? No, but we think we have, so we'll move forward and try to treat it." The injury kept Luck out of all of the team's offseason workouts and all but three training camp practices. He still has not participated in full team drills. In his most recent interview, Luck said he felt as if something was tugging at his lower left leg near the ankle when he ran. The current diagnosis does not call for surgery, just more rehab and a different routine.
