Andrew Luck Placed On PUP List; Ballard Says The Prognosis Is Good

Ballard expects Luck to be ready for Game 1, but Clayton Geathers is likely to miss six games

INDIANAPOLIS, IN -- Colts quarterback Andrew Luck has been placed on the physically unable to perform list (PUP).

He is still recovering from off-season shoulder surgery. General manager Chris Ballard says that Luck is still progressing well through his rehab process, but say that the five-year QB out of Stanford is just not quite there yet.

"I think Andrew would tell you that he would love to be out here throwing to his wide-outs, but that's just not the situation we're in right now," Ballard says.

Luck sat out most of last season with several ailments. Training camp for the Colts is about a week away and Ballard expects to be a competitive camp this year at the Colts Complex.

Ballard says he expects Luck to be off the PUP before the start of the season.

"Andrew has not had any setbacks in his rehab process or with his surgery," Ballard continued. "He's in good shape, good standing, and the prognosis is very, very good."

Ballard also added that highly touted safety Clayton Geathers will remain on the PUP list through the start of the season and will miss at least six games as he recovers from neck surgery.
