Andrew Luck To See Additional Specialists; Likely Not To Return Soon
INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck does not appear to be close to returning to the practice field because of soreness in his surgically repaired right shoulder.
The soreness continues to persist and now it has the Colts looking for answers, a league source told the Indianapolis Star. The soreness prompted the team to shut down Luck two weeks ago after he finally returned to practice on Oct. 4.
The 28-year-old Luck plans to see additional shoulder specialists in the coming days to find the source of the soreness, according to multiple reports. One of those visits to a specialist is scheduled for Monday, a source told ESPN.
Luck, who has not taken a snap in a game since Week 17 last season, is without a timetable for his return after undergoing surgery to repair a torn labrum on Jan. 15.
Luck was coming off perhaps his best overall performance in his six-year NFL career after playing in just seven games in 2015 due to a variety of injuries that included an abdominal muscle tear. In 2016, he completed 346 of 545 passes (63.5 percent) for 4,240 yards with 31 touchdowns to 13 interceptions, and also ran 64 times for 341 yards with two more scores.
For his career, Luck -- the No. 1 overall pick in 2012 and a three-time Pro Bowler -- has completed 1,570 of 2,651 passes (59.2 percent) for 19,078 yards with 132 touchdowns to 68 interceptions, and has 286 rushing attempts for 1,442 yards and 14 more TDs.
