For the second straight week, the franchise quarterback is sitting out of OTA’s due to his calf strain.
Andrew Luck has yet again been held out of OTA’s. For the second straight week, Luck is missing OTA’s because of a calf strain. That calf has held him out of doing any offseason work with the team so far. Is this a possible problem that fans should be worried about?
The answer to that is no. The Colts have said that the strain isn’t serious and them holding him out is just precautionary. They want to make sure that he is completely healthy for training camp, which is where most of the offseason work gets done.
Having Luck being healthy for training camp and preseason is way more important than him being healthy for OTA’s. Luck has been in the league for seven seasons, and is approaching his eighth. He doesn’t need to be in OTA’s to be the best player that he can be.
The good news about this injury is that it is not expected to linger too long. It certainly shouldn’t linger into the regular season. He knows what his body is telling him and won’t push too hard to aggravate it again. He doesn’t want a repeat situation of what his shoulder injury was.
Hopefully he is able to get healthy as soon as possible. It’s obviously better for the team if he could be out there. But the team will take a very patient approach with him to make sure everything is fine.
