Andrew Luck is reportedly seeking treatment for his injured right shoulder across the pond in Europe. The Colts quarterback has yet to take play a down this year and was placed on season-ending injured reserve after Week 8.

The Andrew Luck saga took another turn on Saturday when ESPN’s Chris Mortensen and Mike Wells reported that the injured Colts quarterback was in Europe to receive treatment on his surgically repaired throwing shoulder.

Since October 4th, when Luck first returned to practice, it seems as though we can’t go but a couple days without hearing something odd, misleading, or just plain silly as it relates to Andrew Luck.

After returning to practice in October from shoulder surgery, Luck made it through only four limited practices in two weeks before being shut down for soreness in his right shoulder. It was then reported that Luck was seeking opinions from other doctors because his shoulder was “not progressing as expected”.

Luck was then shut down for good on November 3rd when the Colts put him on season-ending injured reserve. Shortly after that, Colts’ owner Jim Irsay was quoted by former head coach Tony Dungy as saying that Luck’s injury was “inside his head.”

As was noted in the ESPN report, other prominent athletes such as Peyton Manning and Kobe Bryant have visited Europe in the past seeking unconventional treatment for injuries.

Regardless of where he gets the evaluation, Colts fans are just hopeful that Luck gets the treatment he needs so that he can return to the field for Indianapolis next season.
