Andrew Luck: Pre-camp workouts with WRs “part of the plan”

Former Colts quarterback Peyton Manning missed an entire season due to a neck injury during his playing career and he used that experience to offer some advice to current Colts quarterback Andrew Luck when it comes to his attempt to return from the right shoulder injury that kept him out for all of last season.

Manning said that “getting as many reps as possible is key” to returning to form and Luck will get some of his reps in before training camp starts next month. During an interview with Dave Calabro of WTHR, Luck said that he will be working out with the team’s wide receivers in the coming weeks.

“Yeah, I will,” Luck said. “I won’t divulge too many secrets on that. But I absolutely will. It’s part of the plan.”

Luck and T.Y. Hilton have played a lot of football together and Chester Rogers was on the team in 2016, but neither Ryan Grant nor the two receivers the Colts drafted in April have had time to build their relationships with Luck as he’s concentrated on rehab this offseason.

A few pre-camp sessions won’t end the questions that Luck faces about his return and won’t knock off all the rust that’s accumulated over the last year. The same will likely be true of a training camp plan designed to avoid any setbacks with his shoulder, but anything that pushes him closer to an actual return to the lineup will be a welcome development in Indianapolis.

  1. “I wont divulge too many secrets” …Shut up Luck. Secret is you are done. Just say you are working on getting back and hope to if the stars align.

  2. If he’s back to where he was before he got hurt by the end of the 2018 season then the Colts should be happy. They need a couple of seasons of good drafts and good QB play and they can compete for the division championship.

  3. Secret is he is done? Tell that to Vegas who has him at 30-1 to win MVP , but we all know your expertise is above them right?

    Vegas sets odds like this to collect suckers like you!

  5. Still think McDaniels jilted them for some other reason? Irsay said in Jan Luck was already “good to go”. After a medical (insisted by McD, done the same week Colts announced McD), Ballard downgraded Luck to “he’s turned a corner” but buried it under a ton of PR hate on McD and talked up the (non-existent) “rivalry” with Pats. But McD, failed at HC once, couldn’t risk his 2nd chance on a player with no certain timeline to ever be 100%, let alone by Sept – Irsay lied to him.

    He won’t.

  8. I get that people don’t like the colts, etc. I don’t care much about them either way. But I don’t get how people can dislike Andrew luck so much. Sure he’s been injured but he’s one of the biggest class acts in the league his entire career.

  9. Does working with receivers mean using a nerf football, a high school ball or an NFL ball?
    Does Luck choose the p.s.i. of the ball he is using?
    LOL

    We all know Manning’s secret was “roids”.

    HGH and steroids are two very different things

  11. Luck is the most over rated, over hyped, over paid never done anything qb in nfl history.

    I cant wait to see them hang the new banner celebrating him tossing a nerf ball ten feet.

    Just brutal.

  12. Luck was a decent player on a really bad team. He had huge potential coming out of Stanford and sadly Irsay, Grigson and Pagano ruined the kid. We may never know how great he could have been.
