Colts Owner Jim Irsay Says Andrew Luck’s Shoulder Looks Good for a 2018 Return

Colts owner Jim Irsay gave an update on Andrew Luck’s status to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport this week during Winter League Meeting, and all signs are pointing toward the franchise quarterback’s return next season, Nick Shook of reports.

“He’s doing great,” Irsay told Rapoport. “He’s doing well. [We’re] disappointed obviously it’s taken as long as it’s taken. You know, medicine and the way it goes. But there hasn’t been any unusual setback. We didn’t find out anything ominous, something we didn’t know about or anything like that. It’s just taken time for him to go through his whole aspect of rehabbing and progressing and working through the soreness.”

Irsay, noted proponent of “the four-inch field between your ears,” has openly wondered how much of Luck’s injury was mental. Luck has since gone overseas for treatment, which should tell the public all they need to know about the seriousness of his nagging shoulder ailment.

Fortunately, it sounds as though the worst is in the rearview mirror for the quarterback and his ever-valuable arm.

“He’s still in Europe but he’s coming home very shortly,” Irsay told Rapoport. “No additional surgery at this point planned.”
