Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is in a much better place this August than he was one year ago. It’s a year that was completely lost after the former No. 1 pick underwent shoulder surgery.
Fast forward to Luck’s 2018 training camp, and the 28-year-old quarterback says he is feeling much better.
“My arm continues to feel stronger and stronger,” Luck said Friday, a few hours before taking the field for the team’s eighth practice, per Zak Keefer of Indy Star. “I’ll get tired and I’ll recover and I’ll bounce back, and I feel like I’m on a great plan. It’s been a lot of fun so far.”
This is a glowing health report coming from none other than the star quarterback himself. Though, there are a few things Luck admits he needs to work on.
“I threw one the other day to T.Y., a deeper one – and I was like, ‘Alright, I have no idea where this ball is going. Let’s hope it ends up in the right place.’ I hadn’t thrown that route in a long time. There are still moments like that.”
As practices go on, Luck will sort out the mental part of the game. It is the physical side where Luck seems to be right on course to rebound.
This season marks Luck’s seventh in the league and the hope would be the Colts make it to the playoffs after missing out the last three years.
Luck is obviously worth observing during the preseason. He’s currently on track to play in the team’s opener next week.
