There have been so many lies and so much uncertainty regarding Andrew Luck’s shoulder injury that it got to a point where I was only going to believe he was going to throw a football again once I actually saw it happen.
Well, I’ve seen it; or at least video of it! Luck has officially thrown a football for the first time since suffering a setback on his shoulder recovery in October 2017. With that said, it wasn’t an NFL-regulation football, but a football typically used in high school games.
Luck last played in an NFL game on Jan. 1, 2017, the final game of the 2016 season. But, his injury initially occurred on Sept. 27, 2015. He didn’t have surgery until Jan. 19, 2017, which initiated a long and confusing road to recovery for Luck.
Colts owner Jim Irsay said on Tuesday he believes Luck will have “no limitations” for training camp, which begins in the final week of July. Again, I’ll believe it when I see it as Luck isn’t even throwing NFL footballs yet. But, Tuesday was a step in the right direction for the Colts quarterback.
