Colts QB Luck to miss time

He’ll start train­ing camp Satur­day on the PUP list

The Denver Post - - SPORTS - By Michael Marot

IN­DI­ANAPO­LIS» An­drew Luck’s sur­gi­cally re­paired right shoul­der will keep him out for the start of train­ing camp.

How much more time he’ll miss re­mains un­clear.

In­di­anapo­lis Colts gen­eral man­ager Chris Bal­lard told re­porters Mon­day that the team’s fran­chise quar­ter­back would go on the phys­i­cally un­able to per­form list when play­ers re­port to camp Satur­day.

“I want to make this very clear: An­drew has not had a set­back. This is all part of the process,” Bal­lard said. “The long-term prog­no­sis is very good, and that is very pos­i­tive. We are go­ing to fol­low the doc­tors’ or­ders and the process.”

Luck, the No. 1 over­all pick in the 2012 draft and the face of the fran­chise, had surgery in Jan­uary to re­pair a par­tially torn labrum. He did not par­tic­i­pate in any of off­sea­son work­outs, and the Colts knew all along there was a good chance he would still be re­cov­er­ing dur­ing camp.

Bal­lard said Luck did not start throw­ing un­til last week. The next step, Bal­lard said, is work­ing on his throw­ing mo­tion and re­gain­ing strength in his right arm.
