Remember how we told you Andrew Luck was throwing again?
He sure is—throwing out his shoulder that is.
Which is why the Colts QB will stop throwing for the time being after GM Chris Ballard said reported soreness in his surgically repaired right shoulder.
"The doctors and the trainers have decided to give him a cortisone shot to kind of take away some of that inflammation that's been happening," Ballard said yesterday. "He'll continue to rehab. We're just going to shut down the throwing right now to get this thing calmed back down."
It may calm down Luck’s shoulder, but it sure isn’t going to calm down the Colts fan base who are watching the season slip away as the AFC south seems to be being won by talented young QB’s Marcus Mariota in Tennessee who scored three unanswered TD’s in Monday’s night’s 36-22 come from behind win over the Colts and of course Deshaun Watson of the Texans who both have three wins along with the Jags.
In fact the Colts are still just one game out of the AFC south lead at 2-4.
But without Luck, this team isn’t going to be able to compete.
Which is why the fact that Ballard wouldn’t neither put a date on when Luck will resume practicing nor shut the door on the possibility of putting his franchise quarterback on injured reserve. That would officially end his season, isn’t going to calm the situation down either.
