The franchise quarterback hasn’t done any offseason work with the team yet because of a strained calf. Will that continue until training camp?
Stop me if you’ve heard this before: Andrew Luck is hurt during the offseason. He has been dealing with a calf strain that has taken him out of OTA’s so far. The coaches don’t seem too concerned. But is there a point at which fans should start to worry?
So far, he hasn’t done any work on the field with anyone. The Colts are saying they are holding him out just as a precaution. Mandatory veteran camps are coming up soon. Will Luck participate in those? Or will he just hold off until training camp arrives.
For everyone’s sake, let’s hope he is able to do some work before training camp. It’s understandable that they don’t want to risk anything with the veteran, but having him work with his two new wide receivers would be great.
Luck certainly knows the offense very well. There isn’t an issue with him being behind in that sense. But if he can’t do work until training camp, his conditioning might not be the best. And that lack of chemistry could end up hurting him in the preseason.
Right now, there’s no reason to be concerned. But if Luck still doesn’t do anything in the mandatory camps, fans have the right to worry. Nothing matters too much until training camp anyway, but with his injury history everyone is a little concerned when he isn’t out there.
