There are a lot of reasons why the Giants offense has struggled.

Since having surgery in January, Luck missed all of the team’s offseason workouts, all of training camp and the entire preseason before finally being cleared to practice Oct. 4. He did some light throwing that day and was told he could throw every other day.

Last week, Luck ramped up the rehab work. He was throwing passes of 35 to 40 yards with increased velocity and was scheduled to run the scout team as Indy (2-4) prepared for Monday night’s matchup at Tennessee.

Yet they are just one game behind Houston, Jacksonville and the Titans in the AFC South chase. All three teams are 3-3, and with five division games left on the schedule, fans were hoping a quick return would put Indy (2-4) in position to make the playoffs .

Now, everything’s on hold.

The offensive line has been terrible, there’s no run game to speak of, and injuries in the receiving corps have been catastrophic. But the Giants are also predictable, which has made them easier to defend.

Ben McAdoo handed over play-calling duties to Mike Sullivan, the offensive coordinator, and it was a smart call. Eli Manning didn’t have the most impressive day statistically, with 128 yards and one touchdown. But he had a consistent connection with tight end Evan Engram and didn’t turn the ball over once.

The past few days have been as close as you can get to a dumpster fire for the Giants. On Sunday, they lost their top three wideouts in Odell Beckham Jr., Brandon Marshall, and Sterling Shepard due to injuries. Beckham and Marshall are both out for the remainder of the season, while Shepard is day to day, leaving the team thin at the position.

All of this leaves the 0-5 Giants shorthanded going into Denver this week to face the NFL’s top defense. After their bye week the following week, they get to welcome the Seattle Seahawks to town.

Wyoming’s Josh Allen is still drawing massive NFL draft hype. How about that!

Every spring, heading into the NFL draft, college fans are surprised to discover which quarterbacks have won the pros’ hearts. Ryan Tannehill over Russell Wilson, huh? Mitch Trubisky over Deshaun Watson, huh? Jared Goff over … any of these other guys, huh?

Instead, those players go on the Active/Non-Football Injury list. The Broncos placed two rookies on the NFI list this week: tight end Jake Butt, who tore his ACL in Michigan’s Orange Bowl loss last December, and Chad Kelly, who underwent wrist surgery before he was drafted.

The rules on when a player can return from NFI are the same as PUP. But if a player is cleared from the NFI or PUP list, he can’t be placed back on that list after the fact. The team will either have to cut the player or place him on injured reserve.

The time for concern is when a player can’t get off the PUP list before the end of the preseason. If he’s still on PUP when the regular season begins, then that player is stuck on there for the first six games. Luck is expected to start Week 1, but if he’s still on the PUP right before the regular season starts, the Colts will be without their quarterback until mid-October.

Teams always have the option of shifting a player from PUP to injured reserve if it looks like he won’t be physically ready within that six-week timeframe.

The Cowboys and Rams both saw their depth charts upended this week, for entirely different reasons. Ezekiel Elliott got a six-game suspension for violating the league’s personal conduct policy, and Dallas has to figure out the short-term starter if his appeal fails.
