Colts quarterback Andrew Luck has let the media know that he still has not had any pain in his surgically repaired throwing shoulder.
The Colts are obviously monitoring Andrew Luck very closely. They want to be extremely cautious with him and make sure that he doesn’t have another setback. The team wants to make sure he is going to be ready to play the season.
Luck has told reporters over the last couple of days that he still hasn’t felt any pain in his throwing shoulder. He did say that he feels the typical soreness that you would feel this time of year. But he emphasized that he hasn’t felt any pain at all.
Luck will continue to have to field these questions all throughout the season. He is going to need to provide constant updates on his shoulder. But he will not be throwing all seven days a week that the team has practice to keep him from overworking his arm.
The team didn’t have Luck’s best on his first couple of days of practice. But that is expected after all of the time he has been off the field. He will show some rust when he first comes back as he gets back used to the speed of the game again.
Backup Jacoby Brissett will still need to get some quality reps in case of an emergency. The Colts will need to plan for a disaster just in case something happens again this season with Luck. Brissett needs to learn the offense in case he would need to come into the game.
Luck will still be monitored during the duration of training camp. The Colts shouldn’t be worried though because Luck knows he can’t push himself too hard this time around.
