Frank Reich says Andrew Luck has begun throwing footballs
The Indianapolis Colts are hoping Andrew Luck can take part in their entire offseason program and be ready to roll by Week 1, and it sounds like the star quarterback is on the right track to make that happen.
Colts head coach Frank Reich revealed on Tuesday that Luck has begun throwing footballs, though he clearly still has some limitations.
Reich says Andrew Luck IS throwing a football in a rehab context. Doesn't sound like he's letting it rip yet, but that is on the way at some point this offseason. https://t.co/VHxj4fuA3h

Luck had not resumed throwing footballs as of a month ago, though he was participating in strength drills. Colts owner Jim Irsay told reporters on Monday that he is confident Luck has turned a corner and is on the right path toward being ready for Week 1.
Of course, we heard a lot of the same stuff about Luck a year ago after he underwent shoulder surgery, and he did not appear in a single game last season. There have still been some concerning reports swirling around about Luck’s health this offseason, so Colts fans will believe he’s good to go when they actually get to see it.
