Andrew Luck Reportedly Expected to Return to Colts Facility
After traveling around the world to rehab his surgically-repaired shoulder, Andrew Luck is expected to return to the Colts’ team facility this week.
Andrew Luck has been exhausting every possible resource to fully recover from the surgery he underwent on his injured shoulder back in January of 2017.
He even went as far as the Netherlands to work with doctors he trusts in hopes of returning to the field in 2018 after missing the entirety of last season.
According to Ian Rapoport, Andrew Luck has been working with multiple quarterback gurus in California, including the famous Tom House. He has been throwing balls that are heavier than footballs, but he hasn’t gotten to the point in his rehab where he is actually throwing normal footballs yet.
Rapoport acknowledged that we heard the same thing last year, but he did say the Colts expect Andrew Luck to be healthy, recovered, and ready to roll by the time training camp starts in August.

Colts general manager Chris Ballard and new head coach Frank Reich have been incredibly positive and optimistic in their public comments regarding Luck’s health this offseason, but fans are going to need a lot more than words to confirm that the franchise quarterback will be ready to play in 2018.
We’ve still got about four-and-a-half months until training camp kicks off, so I’m sure we’ll hear much more positive talk coming from Andrew Luck and the Colts this offseason.
If last year is any indication, Colts fans shouldn’t buy into the hype just yet. However, Andrew Luck will do everything in his power to get back on the field, and we can still hold out hope that he will return to playing at a Pro Bowl level in the near future.
