Andrew Luck not yet throwing footballs, but he is throwing

One of the biggest questions of the 2018 National Football League offseason is the health of Andrew Luck, and how the Indianapolis Colts' quarterback is coming along after missing all of 2017 due to shoulder surgery.

There were plenty of comments made last season that made it sound like Luck was planning to play in 2017, but it became apparent that he wasn't right when he got on the practice field.

"Oh, that is not an option for me right now", Luck said.

In an interview with Peter King on Tuesday, Luck said the "ship has sailed" on him needing a second surgery. It's the same guy as their quarterback of the present: Andrew Luck.

"Yeah, so I'm in the middle of sort of a little bit of throwing, but strengthening and preparing my shoulder to be able to handle the throw load that is part of being an National Football League quarterback - that's part of being a quarterback", Luck said. "The focus right now is still strengthening all those muscles and making sure my shoulder can handle that".

He didn't explain any specifics of his rehab process in the town hall meeting, but Ian Rapoport is reporting that Luck has not begun throwing actual footballs yet as he is now building up the strength in his shoulder by working with weighted balls. The 28-year-old went on injured reserve on November 2.

New head coach Frank Reich basically had no choice but to keep him on staff since he signed a contract. Luck has said he's "really excited" for everyone in the Colts' organization to have Reich aboard.

As King notes, House said he expects Luck to be able to throw without restriction at some point this spring.

The Indianapolis Colts know who their quarterback of the future is.

For his career, Luck - the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 draft and a three-time Pro Bowler - has completed 1,570 of 2,651 passes (59.2 percent) for 19,078 yards with 132 touchdowns and 68 interceptions.
