Colts QB Andrew Luck Says He Doesn’t Think He Will Need Another Surgery, Should Be Able to Play in 2018

In a news conference Friday afternoon, Colts franchise quarterback Andrew Luck said he does not believe he will need to undergo another surgery and expressed confidence in his return to the field in 2018 according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.

Luck has spent the past month working with a trainer in the Netherlands. Luck said he went to Europe specifically to work with this particular trainer and not because he had any procedures that were not allowed in the US. Luck did say, however, that he felt like he was being “pulled in too many directions” while he was in Indianapolis and wanted his “singular focus” to be on getting better because he was scared to still be feeling pain. That pain has gone down “significantly” after Luck did strength training and soft-tissue work while overseas that yielded good results. “I feel stronger, more stable, more confident in it. It’s better,” Luck said.

That said, Luck has not yet started a throwing program and has not thrown a football in eight weeks. He said he still needs to get his arm strength “back to a better level” and will resume throwing “as soon as I can”. There is some concern that the wait to start throwing could prevent Luck from being ready for the start of the 2018 but the QB sounded confident that he will be back on the field with his teammates after a lost year.
