REPORT: Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck Could Miss First 6 Games Of The Season

Tennessee Titans v Indianapolis Colts

Huge blow to the Indianapolis Colts.

Andrew Luck underwent shoulder surgery back in January and he may miss the first six games of the season because of it. CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora didn’t help ease the fears of Colts fans when he reported on Tuesday that he’s heard plenty of rumblings about [Luck] starting the year on the physically unable to perform list.”

Colts general manager Chris Ballard discussed Luck’s status:

“We want to make sure we handle the process right with Andrew, and continuing to do the things the doctors and trainers have told him to do, and we’re going to follow that process. And as for everyone saying Andrew is down, well, every season is special in my mind. You don’t ever want to take these for granted. They’re too hard to come by. So we’ll do everything we can to put a team on the field that will compete their butts off and play winning football.

“He’s going through his throwing program right now, making sure he’s got his motion back right and the next step is getting him to practice. And once we get him to practice we’ll keep taking steps from there.”

Luck won’t be participating at all during the preseason as he’s already on the preseason PUP list. Over the weekend, Luck attempted to ease the minds of Colts fans.

“There’s no reason to freak out,” he said, per the Star’s Dakota Crawford. “I don’t know what day it’s going to be, I don’t know what week, I don’t know when, but I definitely will be [better].
