Andrew Luck (shoulder) has begun throwing weighted footballs and is reportedly "full steam ahead" for 2018.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport went as far as to say Luck's shoulder is "fine," and that the problems now involve "parts around Luck's shoulder," which to us just confirms Luck's throwing arm remains problematic. It's worth remembering that at this time last year the Colts were promising Luck would be ready for Week 1, and even activated him from the PUP list last September, giving off the impression he'd at last play at some point in the first six games. He wound up never playing a snap. Feb 21 - 8:37 PM

Speaking in a Tuesday interview, Andrew Luck (shoulder) insisted he does not need another operation.

"That is not an option for me right now," Luck said. "That ship has sailed as far as I'm concerned. Which is a relief, I'm not going to lie." Luck was speaking in a pre-recorded interview at a Colts "town hall." Skeptics could latch onto the "right now" in Luck's statement, but he seems to genuinely believe he won't need to go back under the knife. His comments come the same day coach Frank Reich said the team is "hopeful" Luck will participate in OTAs. Luck also said he was "in the middle of sort of a little bit of throwing" and plans to soon progress to "heavier throwing."

New Colts coach Frank Reich is "hopeful" Andrew Luck (shoulder) will be ready to throw in OTAs in April.

We've learned not to put much stock in the Colts' "hopes" for Luck's surgically-repaired shoulder but it's still better than the alternative. There figures to be dozens of updates on Luck's progress, or lack thereof, between now and training camp. The smartest thing to do is to consider Luck questionable for Week 1 until genuine signs of progress are demonstrated.

New Colts coach Frank Reich has pledged to have a "strong element of no huddle" in his offense.

"We will be a multiple, attack, uptempo offense," Reich said. "We will be aggressive." It's fairly boilerplate — when was the last time a new coach pledged to be conservative on offense? — but the no-huddle element is intriguing. Many coaches still seem unduly wary of the no huddle, even when it works well for their offense. It's typically a boon for quarterbacks, and surely would be for Andrew Luck. Reich also insisted he was not concerned with Luck's slow recovery from shoulder surgery.

Colts GM Chris Ballard said Andrew Luck (shoulder) doesn't need another surgery.

"He doesn't need surgery," Ballard said after reports surfaced over concern on Luck's progress. "I've not gotten that from the two doctors. He's not throwing a football yet and is working on arm speed. He's not going to skip a step." Luck's shoulder injury looks to have no impact on Josh McDaniels' decision to back out of the Colts' head-coaching job. The Colts remain optimistic Luck will be ready for the start of the season.
Feb 7 - 5:15 PM

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports there are still doctors who have concerns about Andrew Luck's shoulder and whether he may require additional surgery.

As soon as Josh McDaniels backed out of the Colts' head-coaching job on Tuesday night, rumors began to swirl that McDaniels may know something about Luck's shoulder that the public does not. We doubt that's the case, but the concern around Luck is legitimate after he missed all of 2017 due to complications from right shoulder surgery. Luck needs to start throwing again ASAP to squash the rumors, and they're not going to go away until he does so.
Feb 6 - 9:19 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Andrew Luck (shoulder) is "very close" to resuming a throwing routine.

Luck will head to Los Angeles to work with Tom House and Adam Dedeaux, QB specialists several prominent signal callers have credited with helping their arm strength and throwing motion. That suggests his recovery remains on track, although last year taught us to take nothing for granted in this situation. As of now, Luck looks like he will be ready for the start of the 2018 season.
Jan 30 - 9:00 AM

Colts owner Jim Irsay promised Monday that Andrew Luck (shoulder surgery) will return for the 2018 season.

Irsay lied to his fan base in almost the same manner nearly a year ago to this day, "promising" Luck would be ready for Week 1 of the 2017 season. Luck wasn't, and he wound up missing the entire season even as the Colts deceptively activated him from PUP and kept him on the 53-man roster, drawing out Irsay's lie. "Andrew Luck is going to be back, and back with a fierce fire in his eyes," an again-adamant Irsay said on Monday. "I promise you. He's coming back. He's coming back." We'd recommend buying less than nothing of what Irsay is selling.

Andrew Luck (I.R., shoulder) says he doesn’t think he needs another surgery.

Luck spent the last month rehabbing in Europe. There was concern he would need a procedure in January, but he'll avoid it for now. Luck plans to resume throwing before determining his next step. The Colts tenatively expect him to be ready for the start of next season.

Doctors will determine whether Andrew Luck (I.R., shoulder) needs another surgery after he resumes throwing.

The surgery would occur in January, though Luck is optimistic it won't be necessary. Luck will return to the United States this week after spending the last month rehabbing in Europe. He experienced pain the last time he threw and if that pain returns, Luck would likely undergo a tenodesis procedure to relocate his biceps tendon. Luck was hoping to be ready for the start of next season but another surgery would obviously complicate things.

Andrew Luck (shoulder, IR) is seeking treatment in Europe.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport adds that Luck is looking at new techniques to "get everything in his shoulder balanced." It's not much of an update, and it’s possible Luck is getting a stem-cell procedure. Luck is trying to avoid surgery after a setback last month. The Colts expect Luck to be ready for 2018.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Colts expect Andrew Luck (shoulder, IR) to be ready for the 2018 season.

Luck will be shut down for 2-3 months before he's reevaluated. The Colts don't think he'll need surgery, but it hasn't been ruled out. Luck played through his labrum tear for two years, so he's dealing with significant damage. It's a concern for his career outlook, as Luck hasn't thrown since 2016 and will be entering his age-29 season. Luck is signed for the next four years at $24.6 million annually.

Sun, Nov 5, 2017 09:01:00 AM's Ian Rapoport reports Andrew Luck's surgically-repaired shoulder "stopped getting better" about a week and a half ago.

Per RapSheet, that's when Luck started seeking second opinions, visiting "4-5" doctors. Their recommendation was to stop throwing for "several months" in an effort to stamp out the soreness. It's concerning news, as it means Luck is still without a concrete timeline 10 months after going under the knife. Speaking Thursday, GM Chris Ballard insisted the issue was not career-ending, but rather ominously added the team was "doing everything we can to have a chance to have a long-term career." It's hard to believe Luck won't be ready for 2018, but knowing what we know right now, it should not be taken for granted.

Colts placed Andrew Luck (shoulder surgery) on injured reserve, ending his season.

The Colts' disingenuous assertion that Luck had a chance to return in 2017 has finally been put to rest. It remains unclear if Luck ever truly had a shot at playing this season. There's ample evidence to suggest "no." The official move comes four days after FOX's Jay Glazer reported Luck was "still in pain," and "seeking further opinions." It's an ominous development seeing as it's been nearly 10 months since Luck went under the knife. Even for serious shoulder surgery, this is an unusually long recovery for a football player. That being said, there's no real reason to believe Luck won't be ready for the 2018 season. He isn't scheduled for further surgery. Perhaps older than many people realize, Luck turns 29 next September. It's a genuine shame how much of Luck's prime has been wasted on awful 53-man rosters.

Andrew Luck (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 9.

Jacoby Brissett will make another start, and there is increasing speculation Luck won't play at all this season. Luck should have been dropped in re-draft leagues months ago. Keeping Luck on the 53 has allowed Colts owner Jim Irsay to save money by not having to pay weekly game checks to another player. It has also prevented first-year GM Chris Ballard from maximizing roster spots.
