Colts QB Luck to miss time
He’ll start training camp Saturday on the PUP list
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.
Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck throws a pass against the Broncos last season. Denver won 34-20.
