Indianapolis Colts' Andrew Luck admits injuring shoulder while snowboarding

Sports
Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck admitted that the second shoulder injury he sustained occurred while snowboarding during the 2015-16 offseason. Luck told the NFL Network that he sprained the AC joint in his throwing shoulder in a snowboarding accident in Colorado. The injury, the 28-year-old said, came after -- and was separate from -- the torn labrum he sustained early in the 2015 season. The labrum tear resulted in surgery and cost Luck all of the 2017 season. Luck said he immediately told the Colts about the snowboarding injury. "This was after the initial injury," Luck said, via the NFL Network. "I went back, rehabbed it with the Colts. I've had a bunch of AC sprains, both left and right shoulder, and resolved that issue. But the labrum has been my issue, was my issue,...

Andrew Luck is still not throwing but first-year Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich is not concerned. Reich told the Indianapolis Star on Saturday that Luck is doing "exceptionally well" in his rehab from shoulder surgery that forced him to miss the entire 2017 season. Luck has not thrown a pass since the 2016 regular-season finale, and Colts general manager Chris Ballard said last month that he doesn't expect the quarterback to begin throwing until training camp. The overall No. 1 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, Luck admitted he "pushed a little too hard" in his attempt to return to action after having surgery to repair a torn labrum on Jan. 15, 2017. Recurring soreness in Luck's shoulder prompted the Colts to finally shut him down two weeks after he returned to practice in early...

INDIANAPOLIS -- After meeting with the media on Wednesday at the NFL Scouting Combine, Indianapolis Colts general manager Chris Ballard and newly-hired head coach Frank Reich tried to give the media, and fans, a clearer glimpse of their immediate plans for the franchise. First of all, both Ballard and Reich fully expect quarterback Andrew Luck to be ready for the start of offseason conditioning work on April 2. Yes, the quarterback is making progress as he continues his rehab process in Los Angeles. No, Luck has yet to throw a football during his most recent rehab program. And, no, Luck isn't getting any more medical procedures on his right shoulder. "We've ruled out surgery," Ballard said. "Remember, he played for two years banged up. Going a year without that (throwing) motion every day ...

Indianapolis Colts remain in AFC South division hunt despite absence of Andrew Luck

Sports
INDIANAPOLIS -- With his Indianapolis Colts off to a 2-3 start to the season, head coach Chuck Pagano is looking ahead to Monday night's nationally televised game with AFC South rival Tennessee. The Jacksonville Jaguars are holding down first place in the division with a 3-2 record. But after that, it's a three-way tie for second (or last, depending on your point of view) between Houston, the Titans and the Colts. All three teams have the same 2-3 record. That's why this week's game is a crucial one for both Indianapolis and Tennessee. Whichever squad can pull off a win at Nissan Stadium in Nashville can take a positive step forward in the division. A loss, however, could make things tougher for either team to make a push to the post-season. Pagano says that he doesn't look at the division...
