It's been a long time since Colts fans didn't have to worry about Anthony Richardson's health. After dealing with injuries throughout the first six or so weeks of his rookie season, Richardson was shut down for good after undergoing shoulder surgery last October.

Since then, there's been a slow drip of updates regarding how the Colts' franchise QB has progressed. He began throwing again in February – ahead of schedule, apparently – and as of early May, it seems like things are going well. In fact, according to the latest update, things are going really well.

The latest comes from ESPN's NFL reporter Jeremy Fowler, who reported on SportsCenter this week that Richardson is a 'full go' for offseason activities:

"This is progressing really well. I'm told Richardson feels he's full go at this point," he said. "He's been throwing for a while now. He's gradually grown to where he can throw full time with minimal restrictions. The Colts could be deliberate. They could hold him out for OTAs, 11-man work, minicamp, but the feeling is he wants to get started."

And while it would probably make sense to hold him out for at least the early part of their offseason program, hearing that Richardson is probably going to be the team's QB1 throughout most of the summer is best-case-scenario type stuff. Even limited reps in OTAs would go a long way towards continuing his promising start, not to mention his chemistry with rookie receivers Adonai Mitchell and Anthony Gould.

The Colts' OTAs pick up soon, and it'll be the first time fans get to hear directly from Richardson for a while now. Until then, updates like the one from Fowler will do just fine, I think.
