Colts coach Frank Reich told reporters that Luck needs the work after missing the entire 2017 season while recovering from shoulder surgery. Indianapolis opens the preseason against the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday.
"The plan is to play him a little bit more than he normally would if he'd had a normal year last year," said Reich, per Sports Illustrated. "He needs to get his snaps and maybe a little bit more. But I'm not gonna be dramatic with it."
Luck has said he does not feel any pain in the surgically repaired shoulder and has only dealt with the normal soreness and fatigue.
Colts owner Jim Irsay told The Indianapolis Star that he expects his franchise quarterback to be better than ever after sitting out a year.
"Trust me when I say this," Irsay said, "it's made him a better football player, and a better man, a guy in the end who is going to give us even a better chance for greatness.
"I really felt confident that this guy was going to be back on the field (last year). I, like many of our fans, didn't expect him to miss the season he missed. That was a surprise. A surprise to him, too."
Recurring soreness in Luck's shoulder prompted the Colts to finally shut him down two weeks after he returned to practice in early October. He was placed on injured reserve on Nov. 2.
"It'll all work itself out," Beckham said Saturday during a media briefing, per NorthJersey.com. "Life always does."
