INDIANAPOLIS – Monday mornings are traditionally known for not having good news. And in the case of Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck, this news should not be surprising either.
Sunday, FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer reported that Luck will be seeking additional medical opinions on the status of his throwing shoulder because he is still experiencing pain. ESPN’s Chris Mortensen also confirmed that Luck is seeking another opinion because his shoulder is “not progressing as expected.”
A team source close to the Indiana Sports Report also confirmed this information earlier this morning.
To make matters worse, IndyStar’s Stephen Holder is reporting that Luck will not be practicing this week and that there is still no timetable for his return. Colts Fans, the easiest way to put this is… well, it doesn’t look good for Andrew Luck.
Luck had what the Colts believed was a mild setback more than two weeks ago, when he experienced soreness in his throwing shoulder after he was cleared to practice. He received a cortisone injection for the pain at that time and proceeded to have a good week of rehab, only to experience another setback, which the team does not believe is serious, a source reported. One of those visits to a specialist is scheduled for Monday, the source added.
The additional exams likely will determine whether he should resume his rehab in an effort to play this season, according to the source, but the prospect of Luck playing this season… well, let’s just add it doesn’t look good.
