Ryan Grigson says all is well with Andrew Luck

The Colts got attention last season for failing to list quarterback Andrew Luck’s broken ribs on their injury report and they got attention on Wednesday for listing Luck as limited because of his right shoulder.

Luck had been running the first team without incident all offseason and preseason, which made his appearance on the injury report days before the opener something of a surprise. On Thursday, General Manager Ryan Grigson told Dan Dakich of 1070 The Fan that Luck’s limited day of work was all part of a plan to keep him “fresh going into the season.”

“No. He’s all good,” Grigson said. “I mean the guy’s thrown a zillion balls. The media’s seen it. [He was] in Anderson day in and day out throwing a ton of balls with a lot of velocity — even knocking some guys over. I don’t know. I guess you could sit there and look for something that’s not there, but I’m just saying he’s going to be ready for the game this weekend, and we have a plan that we think’s best for him, and one he feels good about, and that’s what we’re doing.”

Luck will start his first game since November 8 of last year when the Colts host the Lions on Sunday afternoon. Keeping him in good enough health to start the next 15 games as well will be a priority this season.

    Terrific. What will be his excuse when the Colts miss the playoffs and battle for 3rd place in the AFC South?

    Not even colt fans comment on colt’s stories. Grigson is the worst GM besides Sneed. Whatever happened to that clown peytonsneck?

    …. And here come the Patsie* girls.

    Notice that luck doesn’t cheat like 2 yard tom!

    Want him to stay healthy? Get a better O line.

    You’d think Irsay would have realized this, I’ve heard he’s an expert at doing lines

    Translated means = do not have high expectations this year Colts fans.

    Because of Ryan Grigson, not all is well with the Colts.

    Luck’s a good kid. Too bad he has to play for that human paraquat.

    I’d call him a duplicitous, lying, scumbag weasel but the duplicitous, lying, scumbag weasels would likely be offended.

    WooHoo! Let’s hang a banner, pump some crowd noise, pop some pills, leave a dead chick in the mansion, tank a season, and cry to the Commish about some made up violation. Maybe get a rule or 3 changed. Party On Garth!

    And who believes a word that comes out of his mouth??? Dude’s the biggest slim ball ever.

  12. joshhogan73 says: Sep 8, 2016 3:01 PM

    All is well except the offensive line.

  13. ricko1112 says: Sep 8, 2016 3:05 PM

    Grigson is an incompetent, lying, slimy, scumbag!

    In other words, he’s perfect for the Colts…

  14. zoxitic says: Sep 8, 2016 3:09 PM

    As for the rest of the team, Grigson says we got problems….
    Big problems.

    It should be well with Andrew Luck. He and the Colts are going to win the Super Bowl this year. Colts v Vikings SB 51.

  16. truthprofessor says: Sep 8, 2016 3:12 PM

    When do they hang up the “we have the highest-paid player” banner?

  17. toybkshr says: Sep 8, 2016 3:16 PM

    Given that OL expect Luck to be on the injury report a few times but he won’t always be “all good”!!

  18. weepingjebus says: Sep 8, 2016 3:27 PM

    This guy makes millions a year while sounding like Uncle Rico. Mesmerizing.

  19. patsrthegreatest says: Sep 8, 2016 3:29 PM

    Looks like another participation banner year! Neither a franchise nor fan base in the history of North American professional sports who deserves it more

  20. dejc421 says: Sep 8, 2016 4:02 PM

    Hang another participation banner.

  21. tonebones says: Sep 8, 2016 4:05 PM

    Luck and the Colts will win the super bowl. He’s fine. Nobody that plays tackle football for a living is ever 100% healthy.

  22. jackedupboonie says: Sep 8, 2016 4:08 PM

    He needs a neck barber….that stuff needs attention

  23. dispozblcopy says: Sep 8, 2016 4:25 PM

    The odd thing is that he probably believes what he says, whereas he’s pretty much trained everyone else (but Irsay) to not only disbelieve him but assume the opposite.

  24. patsfan4lifesbchamps says: Sep 8, 2016 5:39 PM

    Garbage o line, poor defense, mediocre receiver corps, a washed up RB, so it’s all on Luck. Well, good luck, Luck!

  25. thegreatgabbert says: Sep 8, 2016 6:21 PM

    But he still can’t get a date. The Ukrainian divorcee from the online agency notwithstanding.
