Andrew Luck Is Throwing Again As Colts Mini-Camp Progresses
INDIANAPOLIS -- For the first time in months, Andrew Luck is throwing again.
The Indianapolis Colts quarterback has been sidelined for the better part of the last year and a half with an injured shoulder. Today at mini-camp, Luck took his first snaps from under center since the middle of last season.
"It was fun," Luck said enthusiastically afterwards. "It's another step. No bigger or smaller than that last ones."

Luck sat out all of last season as he had unceasing pain in his throwing shoulder. He had surgery on his shoulder after the 2016 season and when he tried to be ready for the 2017 season, Luck admits he rushed his recovery from surgery which resulted in him being shut down in the middle of last season.
"I had pain last year and I wasn't being honest with myself and I was trying to get through it," said Luck. "There is none of that now. I believe I'm on the right path. I believe I'll be better than I was and I'll be a better quarterback for this team."
Colts head coach Frank Reich had been tight lipped about whether or not Luck would be throwing again anytime soon. Luck said after practice Tuesday that he's actually been throwing for the last couple weeks.
"I had Coach Reich come out when not many people were here and I made him swear to me that he wouldn't say anything and that it was my story to tell," Luck said jokingly.
Luck said his goal at the moment is to just be ready for training camp at the end of July.
