Report: Andrew Luck not yet throwing footballs, but he is throwing
Andrew Luck has resumed throwing and appears to be on track to be ready for the start of the 2018 season, but the Indianapolis Colts quarterback is not slinging the pigskin around just yet.
In an interview with Peter King on Tuesday, Luck said the “ship has sailed” on him needing a second surgery. He revealed that he has been working on his throwing mechanics with QB guru Tom House, but Luck did not mention anything about throwing a football. According to ESPN’s Ian Rapoport, he has not been throwing footballs but has been tossing around objects that are heavier than one.
Andrew Luck isn’t throwing football yet, but I’m told he’s throwing weighted balls heavier than footballs. More good news below https://t.co/UvgvW46vOG

As King notes, House said he expects Luck to be able to throw without restriction at some point this spring. Obviously, it is not ideal that the 28-year-old still has limitations more than a year after he underwent shoulder surgery, but the Colts have already come this far. There’s no need to rush now.
Luck said he has been feeling great and described himself as being “in a great place,” which is good news. The concerning rumors that were swirling toward the end of the 2017 season appear to be unfounded, though Colts fans will most likely believe Luck is healthy when they see it.
