Andrew Luck still not throwing, but not “sullen or morose”

Andrew Luck is not ready to start making hype videos of his first throws, the way Cam Newton did this week.

That does not mean he’s not hyped in his own way.

The Colts quarterback participated in a camp for a local children’s hospital yesterday, running around and playing with kids and having a good time but not yet throwing footballs to them. Or anyone else, either.

Asked about his recovery from shoulder surgery, he stayed positive despite not hitting the big landmark people are looking for.

“Feeling better and better every week,” Luck said, via Brody Miller of the Indianapolis Star. “Still haven’t started throwing. But that process will come when it’s ready.”

When asked about the status of his rehab, he replied: “No reason to be sullen or morose! It’s a beautiful day.”

Of course, it will be a brighter day for the football fans in his area when he can actually throw again. He’s still about a month away from the start of training camp so there’s still time to prepare, but the clock is ticking.

    This doesn’t sound good especially when you consider the beating that he is likely to take from teams like the Texans this year. Clowney,Watt,Mercilus and company–oh my.

    It appears that he’s spending rehab time reading poetry. On a serious note, it’s not a good sign that he’s not doing anything with his arm after what the team has termed a simple surgery. The muscle atrophy at this point will be very severe, which will only lengthen his recovery time.

    He sounds pissed!

    Andrew Luck still not throwing, but not “sullen or morose”.

    SO he is acting like an adult. Okay, so why is this newsworthy? Perhaps because so few NFL players act like adults?

    Tom Brady missed the first four weeks of the season and still won the super bowl. I’ll wait until October to start being concerned.

    No need to be sullen or morose, true–plenty of time for that come November after pick # 16, when the Colts are 4-6.

    The Colts could compete with the Jets in the supposed Franchise Quarterback sweepstakes in next year’s draft.

    Suck with instead of Suck for.

    Torn Labrum…
    Your QB will never be the same Indy.. His velocity will suffer, and get worse with time.
    I know, I’ve had atorn Labrum surgery in both shoulders…

    Good morning!
    Morose means sullen.

    last successful colt’s throw was throwing the suck for luck season…

    Every day that he sticks with the doctor’s planned recovery (and does not push it) is better for his long term success. I hope he starts throwing a minimum number of days before camp. They will need to manage his reps.

    They should ‘Tom Brady’ him on the injury report. “Right Shoulder Probable” the entire season even if he does make a full recovery

    This poor guy still hasn’t recovered from the beating he took in the AFCCG

    Colts need to pay him more money. LOL!

    Come on Andy! The team’s gearing up for a serious run at a new participation banner!
