Colts coach Frank Reich insists the team is "not worried at all" that Andrew Luck (shoulder) has yet to resume throwing.

It has been 507 days since Luck threw a football. "Right now we’re just continuing to stay in the same mode," Reich said of his quarterback's never-ending rehab. "Can’t cut things short. There’s no reason to cut things short. It’s a day-by-day process and evaluation and just staying trusting in that." Luck believes his last rehab failed because he "skipped steps." Luck hopes to be throwing "without restrictions" by the start of training camp. That would require picking up a football in the very near future.

The Indianapolis Star's Zak Keefer has "heard" T.Y. Hilton is "all in" on the Colts' new coaching staff is "giving everything he's got" this offseason.

It's got to be refreshing for Hilton to get a new start with a coach that is coming off a Super Bowl title as the Eagles' OC who has brought over Nick Sirianni as the Colts' OC after a strong run as the Chargers' WRs coach. Hilton had a dreadful -- for his standards -- 2017 season, finishing under 1,000 yards for the first time since 2012. With Andrew Luck coming back healthy by all accounts inside the Colts' building, Hilton is big rebound candidate for 2018.

Colts FS Malik Hooker (knee) took the field at Tuesday's OTAs session, doing some backpedaling and cutting.

Sidelined since late October, this is another positive step in Hooker's recovery. The No. 15 overall pick of last year's draft is currently without a concrete timeline. He should be considered questionable for Week 1. Even if Hooker does suit up for the opener, he will likely sit out the entire preseason.

Colts HC Frank Reich said RB Nyheim Hines' pass-catching skills are "very impressive".

Reich also said Hines' intelligence was evident. Colts have already confirmed Hines will play both running back and slot receiver to best utilize his 4.38 40-speed. He should be given an opportunity in camp to compete with Marlon Mack, Jordan Wilkins, and Robert Turbin for early-down carries. Despite being in a committee, Hines is likely to have value in PPR leagues immediately.

Colts HC Frank Reich said Andrew Luck still isn't throwing the football.

Reich said everything is going to plan and Luck is doing "exceptionally well." It's not a surprise he's coming along slowly — GM Chris Ballard said Luck wouldn't throw until training camp — but it remains startling that Luck hasn't thrown a live pass since Jan. 1, 2017, which was 496 days ago. He turns 29 in September.

Colts claimed DL Rakeem Nunez-Roches off waivers from the Chiefs.

Nunez-Roches was a surprise cut after being tendered by Kansas City. He doesn't have much in front of him in Indy, but isn't a great fit for their Tampa-2 scheme. The Colts will assume Nunez-Roches' entire $1.9 million salary.

Colts signed WR Kasen Williams.

The Colts cleared a roster spot for him by cutting DeAndre Smelter. Undrafted out of Washington, Williams has appeared in 10 games across three NFL seasons. He nabbed nine-of-18 targets for 84 yards in limited action for Cleveland last year.

Colts signed No. 6 overall pick OG Quenton Nelson to a four-year contract.

Like all first-round deals, Nelson's comes with a fifth-year team option for 2022. One of the top overall talents in the draft, Nelson is a big get for a Colts line that has struggled seemingly the entire Andrew Luck era. He figures to step right in at left guard between LT Anthony Castonzo and C Ryan Kelly.
May 11 - 9:54 AM

Colts signed RT Austin Howard, formerly of the Ravens.

31-year-old Howard started all 16 games at right tackle for the Ravens last season, missing just four snaps. At this stage, he's a replacement-level player but a serviceable one who can also play some guard. In Indy, Howard should compete with Denzelle Good for the right tackle job. The rest of the Colts' line appears set with LT Anthony Castonzo, LG Quenton Nelson, C Ryan Kelly, and RG Jack Mewhort, though Mewhort has played sparingly in two years due to injuries.
May 9 - 12:56 PM

The Indianapolis Star' Zak Keefer believes Chester Rogers is the "leading candidate" to be the Colts' No. 2 receiver.

With Donte Moncrief off to Jacksonville, Rogers and free-agent pickup Ryan Grant are going to compete for the No. 2 gig. Rogers has the early edge as one of GM Chris Ballard's favorites and seems to be picking up coach Frank Reich's offense quickly, as the self-proclaimed "top of the class" among the receivers in the classroom this offseason. Rogers' 2017 was derailed by a summer hamstring strain. The 24-year-old has taken up Pilates to combat the issue.
May 9 - 11:37 AM

Colts signed DE Chris McCain.

TE Randall Telfer was waived in a corresponding roster move. A 2014 UDFA, McCain tallied five sacks on 240 snaps for the Chargers last season. He entered the year with only two for his career. The Colts are taking pass rushing fliers after tallying a dismal 25 sacks a season ago.
May 8 - 6:33 PM

Chiefs waived DL Rakeem Nunez-Roches.

It is a somewhat surprising move considering the Chiefs tendered Nunez-Roches as a restricted free agent in March. Perhaps they will look to bring him back at less than the $1.9 million he was owed.
May 8 - 11:08 AM

The Indianapolis Star considers Marlon Mack the "frontrunner" to lead the Colts' backfield committee.

He is, but it's by default. Mack generated just 358 yards on 93 rookie carries (3.8 YPC). Inconsistent usage and terrible blocking played a part. Mack is capable of big plays, with six of his 2017 carries going for at least 20 yards. This summer he will be competing with rookies Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines as well as veteran Robert Turbin.
May 7 - 2:55 PM

Marlon Mack is recovering from offseason shoulder surgery.

After the draft, GM Chris Ballard revealed Mack played his entire rookie season with a torn labrum. It's unclear when the surgery took place, but it would be disappointing if Mack wanted until recently to have the operation. Ballard said he expects Mack back for training camp. Mack is penciled in atop the Colts' running back depth chart, but Robert Turbin and rookies Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins will push for snaps. Mack seems likely to miss all of OTAs and minicamp.
May 2 - 1:09 PM

Colts GM Chris Ballard said 2016 second-round pick T.J. Green will play safety.

Green saw reps at cornerback last season, but it did not work out and he was quickly moved back to safety. "That was a little bit of my fault," Ballard said. "Right when I got here, I figured, ‘Let’s cut the field down for him.’ That was on me. And then he struggled in L.A. (in the season opener). He’s a safety." After playing well down the stretch last season, Green has a good shot to earn a starting job.
