Indianapolis Colts not rushing Andrew Luck return to training

Andrew Luck was not on the field for the Colts’ latest training session but the franchise say there is no cause for alarm.

Luck instead trained indoors as he continues to progress toward a return from the shoulder issue that kept him out all of last season.

The 28-year-old has earned three Pro Bowl selections during his career and holds a number of franchise records with Indianapolis, including most passing yards in a single season.

Colts coach Frank Reich said: “Obviously he’s not out here with the guys, but just shifting the time we’re doing it.

“What we’d been doing, he was coming out for the first part then during individual drills. We just switched that today.

“I think he’s doing quite well in the weight room and out of the weight room.

“We are just encouraged by everything we see. If you look at him physically, he’s a specimen. It’s a long season.

“You want to get bulletproof as much as you can. I’m impressed with everything he’s doing.”
