General manager Chris Ballard spoke to 1070 The Fan today and said Andrew Luck will ease back into action during the Colts’ offseason program in April.

The Colts have already rushed Andrew Luck back from shoulder surgery once, and they don’t plan on doing it again.

Luck began to participate in practice midway through last season, but he had to be shut down after a couple weeks after it became clear that his shoulder was not right. That led him to head to Europe this offseason for treatment, and he’s followed that up by working with quarterback guru Tom House in California.

Luck is expected to make his long-awaited return to the Colts’ training facility when they begin their offseason program on April 9th where he will continue his road to recovery. The Colts’ front office and coaching staff have been very vocal in saying Luck will be ready to go for Week 1 of 2018, but fans will continue waiting to see some real progress before they believe it.

According to the Indianapolis Star’s Zak Keefer, April and May will include an “intense throwing regimen” where “recovery will be critical during this time.” He also added that the “team remains very confident” in his recovery, which is something we’ve heard for the last 15 months.

Seeing Luck back on the practice field in Indianapolis will help Colts fans believe that his return to game action is imminent, but there is xgill a long way to go before he’ll be ready to play in a real game in September.
