Chuck Pagano on Andrew Luck: ‘He Had a Good Day Today’


Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck practiced on a limited basis on Monday, making a handful of screen passes and handoffs:

Colts head coach Chuck Pagano is once again keeping his cards close to his chest, as he offered very little material updates on his star quarterback’s progress:

"“He looked good,” said Pagano Monday. “Yeah, he’s moving in the right direction. Trending in the right direction, so a lot better than he was Saturday morning.”“No different than it was,” added Pagano. “The goal is to see if he’d be available for yesterday’s ball game, and it just didn’t work out that way. Still the goal to try to get him ready to go for this game.”"

When asked what throws Luck made behind closed doors, Pagano was once again deflective in his answers:

"“He had a good day,” replied Pagano. “He had a good day today.”"

One point of particular conflict is whether Luck indeed has a slightly separated shoulder.

Earlier today, Fox59 anchor Chris Hagan reported that Luck has a subluxation of his right shoulder, which’s Ian Rapoport later confirmed:

However, when Pagano was asked whether that was actually the case, the Colts coach once again played it coy:

"“I never heard that,” answered Pagano. “Sore shoulder is what I heard.”"

Whatever the case may be, Pagano was glad to have his star quarterback back on the practice field, even if it was just on a limited basis:

"“Great,” said Pagano on having Luck practice Monday. “Great. Yeah, it was good just to, you know his whole persona and he feels really good, so it was great having him out there.”"
