Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich announced Tuesday that ailing quarterback Andrew Luck will not practice this week as the team prepares for its third preseason game, according to Zak Keefer of The Athletic.

Reich stated the issue remains a matter of "full speed movement versus pain threshold."

Though club brass reportedly holds "guarded optimism" that the passer will be ready for Week 1, Reich previously stated he wanted to name Indianapolis' opening-day starter by the end of its third preseason contest.

Luck hasn't participated in any full practices since the beginning of training camp. He's dealt with a lingering calf issue for several months, and the Colts revealed during camp that he's also experiencing pain in his ankle.

Indianapolis opens its season Sept. 8 against the Los Angeles Chargers. Jacoby Brissett will start the game under center if Luck isn't cleared to play.

The Colts anointed Brissett their starting quarterback after Andrew Luck's shocking retirement in August. Brissett was entering the fourth year of his rookie deal. The new agreement is not an extension, but a straight two-year contract that keeps the quarterback with the Colts through the 2020 season, according to ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio. Indianapolis acquired the 26-year-old from the New England Patriots days before the 2017 season.
