Andrew Luck throws in front of media

(INDIANAPOLIS) – Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck not only threw a football in front of the media Tuesday for the first time since he was shut down last October, he also said he will "absolutely" be playing the team's Week 1 opener against the Cincinnati Bengals. Luck, who had surgery on his right shoulder in January 2017, jogged from the team's indoor practice facility out to the practice field about 10 minutes after the start of practice. He threw a Wilson TDS 1205 football, which is a college-size ball, during individual position drills under the watchful eye of head coach Frank Reich before eventually heading back into the Colts' indoor facility about 30 minutes later. Luck made 20-25 throws. Luck threw a regulation football once when he called Reich at his house and asked him to come to the facility several weeks ago to help him with a "little mental block" that he had to overcome. Luck said he made Reich "swear" not to tell anybody about throwing a regulation football because it was his "story to tell." But the majority of his throwing currently is with the college size ball. Luck has been a regular since the Colts started their offseason workouts in early April, but his work has consisted of taking part in individual drills minus throwing the ball and continued rehabilitation on his shoulder.
