Report: Andrew Luck to work with QB guru Tom House, will not need another surgery
According to a report from Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Luck is planning to work on his throwing mechanics in Los Angeles with noted quarterback guru Tom House and strength coach Adam Dedeaux, both of whom have worked with other top NFL QBs including Tom Brady. A source told Rapoport that Luck is “very close” to throwing again, which means that the 28-year-old will not need another surgery on his right arm.
Luck initially underwent surgery for a torn labrum last January, and he never ended up playing in 2017. He resumed throwing during the season but was shut down due to discomfort in November, which led to concerns that he may need a second surgery. After Luck went to the Netherlands for physical therapy, he expressed optimism that he will not need to go under the knife again.
The Colts are set to name Josh McDaniels their next head coach after the Super Bowl, and McDaniels would probably be more hesitant to take the job if Luck’s health was a major concern.
