Luck’s playing time in the preseason opener will likely consist of a couple of series at most.
“We’re going to play it by ear,” Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. “You never know what's going to happen. We'd love to see, in a perfect world, them go out there and have a six, seven, eight-play drive and score a touchdown, kick the PAT and then make a decision whether to get them out of the game."
Luck agrees with Pagano.
"I think you need to play," the quarterback said. "In a perfect world, you go out and have a long drive, convert a bunch of third downs and do some other good things and score a touchdown. But the Jets are formidable. A great defense, a great team. So we'll see. Sometimes it's nice being a player. You can let coaches make the decisions for you. This is one of those decisions."
Pagano said Monday that veteran receiver Reggie Wayne, who is coming off a torn ACL, will not play against the Jets.
