Andrew Luck: Shoulder 'feeling better and better'


For the latest non-update on Andrew Luck's shoulder rehab, we head to Indianapolis.

"It's going really well, it's feeling better and better every week," Luck told reporters Tuesday following his Change The Play program camp for kids, via the Indianapolis Star. "Still haven't started throwing, but that process will come when it's ready."

When a reporter suggested at the beginning of his question that Luck could be sitting around "sullen or morose" given the long slog he's had without being able to throw the football, Luck added:

"No reason to be sullen or morose" he said. "It's a beautiful day."

Luck really does seem to be in good spirits. Despite not being able to participate in any offseason training activities or mandatory minicamp practices, both the quarterback and the organization have maintained a pretty incredible atmosphere of calm throughout the process. Luck's shoulder is by far the most underrated storyline of the season given that we still aren't 100 percent sure when he'll return to the playing field. Owner Jim Irsay said the season opener is in play, though that would mean seeing progress quite soon.

Much like Drew Brees in New Orleans, the Colts derive almost their entire identity from the quarterback position. New general manager Chris Ballard is trying to change that by bolstering Indianapolis' defense, but in the meantime, Indianapolis could use some good news soon regarding Luck's shoulder.
