Andrew Luck had a forgettable 2015 season for the Colts. It was a year where he played in just seven games due to a lacerated kidney and shoulder issues. And even when he was in there, questions about his performance was swirling.
Here ere are in April and he’s apparently still not recovered from those injuries.
“I still have some work to do, certainly,” Luck said about getting back to 100%. “It’s been a process that we laid down in basically that first week after the season ended with our trainers and physical therapists, coaches and myself. We said, ‘Here’s the plan basically until training camp starts and let’s follow this plan.’ It’s been a great plan so far. I feel really, really good.”
Expect him to be healthy by week 1, but it isn’t good to see him get so banged up so young. Luck won’t have to engage in offseason drills for another few weeks, but this is something to keep an eye on, because the overwhelming assumption was that he was all the way back. This all comes after Colts owner Jim Irsay and head coach Chuck Pagano both told ESPN last month that Luck needs to do a better job of protecting himself.
