Andrew Luck: 5 Months Later, I’m Still Not Healthy

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck dealt with injuries to his ribs, shoulder, and abdomen in 2015.

And the was before a lacerated kidney ended his season after just seven games.

Originally, the team had estimated Luck would take two to six weeks to heal.

It's now been 20 weeks, and the three-time Bro Bowler says he's still not 100 percent.

"No. I still l have some work to do certainly," Luck said during the Colts' offseason workouts when he was asked if he's fully healthy. "That being said, you’re always working to get better. You’re always working to feel better. You’re always working to be in better shape, to be more physically fit, so that’s still a process. It’s been a process that we laid down in basically that first week after the season ended with our trainers and physical therapists coaches and myself. We said, ‘Alright, here’s the plan. Here’s the plan basically until training camp starts and let’s follow this plan.’ It’s been a great plan so far. I feel really, really good.”

Apparently Luck is still experiencing pain when he throws—something he did over 1,800 times in the three seasons prior to 2015.

The quarterback was asked whether he had any limitations once he starts throwing. His answer shouldn't exactly put the minds of Colts fans at ease.

"I don't have to answer that question now because we're not on the field," Luck said. "I wish I had a crystal ball and had all the answers for you."

Indianapolis went 2-5 in Luck's starts last seasons before finishing 8-8.
