Andrew Luck Improving, Still not Throwing

Andrew Luck says his surgically repaired right shoulder feels better and is hopeful of being on the field when training camp opens.

A healthy Andrew Luck certainly helps in that regard.

Fast forward to April, and Luck has not resumed throwing, but did show up for new head coach Frank Reich's program.

"If I wasn't making progress, it would freak me out and we would have to change something", Luck said, via the IndyStar.

He added of his recovery: "I've skipped steps before and I've paid for it before, and I'm not gonna do that again". More importantly, I trust myself in this process.

A general view of the stage is seen as the Indianapolis Colts announce their pick during the 2015 NFL Draft at Roosevelt University on Thursday, April 30, 2015 in Chicago, Ill. Luck said he thought he "pushed a little too hard" in his attempt to return to action after having surgery a year ago and that he's not going to skip any steps along the way this time as a result. Although Luck is still working his way back to throwing a football, the fact that Luck is back with the team is a huge development in his long recovery process. "I don't anticipate doing too much, or you guys seeing me to do too much out there". I can not miss steps. "I'll be a better quarterback, a better teammate, a better person and I'm very confident".

The Trump administration has said it is taking action as a crackdown on China's theft of United States intellectual property. He's also instructed his secretary of agriculture "to implement a plan to protect our farmers and agricultural interests".

"I'm very, very confident, very, very optimistic that I'm going to be absolutely fine and come back better than I was".

"(I am) not a perfect-feeling athlete right now", he said, adding that he "pushed a little too hard" in his attempt to return to action after having surgery in January 2017.

Luck is not going to participate in any of the OTAs and minicamps, and is hoping to be ready by late July for the start of training camp.

"I'm fairly private by nature", Luck said. Luck did say that there's a timetable in place for him to move to the next step in his throwing program, although he passed on the chance to reveal what it looked like while saying several times that he's making progress.

But, according to Luck, when that shoulder starts actually throwing an NFL-football is expected to take some time.
