Default Chandler Hutchison Jersey

Andrew Luck said all the right things Monday.

He feels good Kendall Wright Jersey , hopes to be full go when training camp begins and believes he will be a better overall quarterback when he returns.

All he has to do now is prove it.

For the first time in more than three months, Luck fielded questions from local reporters about his surgically repaired right shoulder and explained his longer-than-expected recovery might have been at least partially the result of his desire to come back too quickly.

"I think I pushed a little too hard at times. Your body, as I'm learning, will tell you no at certain times and you just have to listen to it," Luck said as the Indianapolis Colts started their offseason work.

"I've gone and skipped steps before and paid for it. Been in pain and not able to help the team. Embarrassed, guilty, whatever. I'm not going to do that again."

Luck didn't go into specifics about what he would, could or should have done differently after initially hurting the shoulder in September 2015.

He missed the next two games then made four straight starts before suffering a season-ending liver injury in November.

Luck opted against surgery that offseason and instead wound up signing a five-year, $140 million contract extension.

In 2016, he started 15 games and had his best statistical season despite continued pain. But he hasn't taken a snap since having surgery for a partially torn labrum in January 2017, and he still isn't throwing regulation-sized footballs. He's been limited to working only with miniature footballs this offseason.

Still, it's progress. And it's a far cry from last October when Luck's throwing regimen suddenly stopped because of continued shoulder soreness.

He spent the next month seeking additional medical opinions before moving his rehab to Europe.

Luck finally returned to the team facility in late December and has spent most of the past three months working out in California with noted quarterback experts Tom House and Adam Dedeaux.

The good news is Luck says he's feeling much more confident in his recovery.

"If I wasn't making progress, it would freak me out and we would have to change something. But I am Ricky Wagner Jersey ," he said. "I'm feeling better."

The bad news: Fans have heard all this before.

Whenever Luck gets back, he will be working with a vastly different supporting cast.

New head coach Frank Reich will be calling the plays. Running back Frank Gore and receiver Donte Moncrief left in free agency and receiver Phillip Dorsett was traded to New England for Jacoby Brissett, who started the final 15 games for Indy last season.

Luck might have a slightly different look, too.

"I wouldn't say I'm changing my throwing motion," he said. "And that's a big part of what I've been working on, making sure I'm using my body as effectively as possible to throw a football and not over- or under-compensate in any way."

Some of the Colts' newcomers, such as recently signed free agent Eric Ebron, chose Indy because they believe Luck will be better than ever.

"He was the reason I came here, to keep it honest," said Ebron, a tight end. "It doesn't matter as much where I played, I wanted a quarterback who would work with me the way that I knew I needed him to work with me."

When exactly Ebron and Luck will start working out together remains unclear.

While acknowledging there now is a timetable for his progression, he's keeping it confidential for now.

But the biggest difference between this year's offseason workouts and last year's is that Luck sounds more confident about himself and his shoulder.

"I feel stronger Taron Johnson Jersey , I feel more fit," he said. "I feel way more confident in myself and I don't look at my shoulder and say 'why are you failing me?' like the guy in 'The Old Man and the Sea.' I feel like I have a bit more grasp of the situation. There is still a bit of a journey left and I'm not going to skip any steps."

NOTE: The Colts have put receiver Rodney Adams on the reserve-retired list. Adams was a fifth-round draft pick out of South Florida in 2017.

Andrew Luck looked comfortable in his old spot Thursday.

He took command of the huddle, made all the required throws, chatted with teammates and coaches and even critiqued himself. He avoided one personal concern by successfully handling the first snap, and he was serenaded by Indianapolis Colts‘ fans chanting his name.

Yes, after more than 19 months of answering questions about his surgically repaired throwing shoulder, Luck finally got a chance to show everyone exactly what he could do during the team’s first training camp workout Thursday.

”It was a good day, a solid day in windy conditions,” new coach Frank Reich said following a two-hour workout in shorts. ”I thought he looked strong, consistent, a good first day for him.”

The unofficial numbers: 4 of 9 with one interception in two rounds of 11-on-11 and 11 of 19 overall.

Of course, nobody expected Luck to be at his level best on Day 1.

The three-time Pro Bowler had surgery on a partially torn labrum in January 2017, missed all of last season with lingering pain and didn’t resume throwing again until May. He did light work during June’s three-day minicamp and ramped up his activity in California over the next six weeks.

Thursday marked the first time he worked out with the starting unit since the end of the 2016 season Le'Raven Clark Jersey , and it was also his first real chance to get acclimated to Reich’s new offense.

”He doesn’t have the familiarity that we have when it comes to running the offense,” center Ryan Kelly said. ”I mean you can look at it on paper for so long, but until you’re out there and running it … So every so often in walkthroughs, he’d ask me a few questions. It’s usually the other way around, so it’s kind of weird right now.”

The Colts also weren’t about to ask anyone to do too much too fast. So rather than turn things loose, Reich instructed his players to slow it down for the first two days.

It showed.

But that’s not why so many fans showed up to the team’s new camp site, Grand Park Sports Campus, in Westfield, Indiana – a northern suburb of Indianapolis.

They wanted to see the team’s most anticipated camp appearance since Luck arrived in town with the title of No. 1 overall draft pick in 2012.

Some couldn’t wait. The line started forming more than two hours before practice began, and blue No. 12 jerseys were a favorite fashion option in the bleachers. When individual drills started to wrap up and it became obvious Luck was about to start throwing, one fan shouted: ”Get ready for the most anticipated pass.”

Luck did not speak with reporters after the workout though he was more talkative than usual on the field.

He started the afternoon with a brief conversation with Reich and could be seen discussing specific plays with receivers and offensive linemen throughout the afternoon.

Reich liked most of what he saw.

”Really good,” he said. ”Being under center, running team periods Marcus Cooper Jersey , making plays, seeing him hit the big play to (Eric) Ebron, you know, taking control of the huddle, making some checks at the line of scrimmage, just doing what he does. I mean you could see it in his demeanor, you could see it in his eyes, working through his progressions. He was sharp.”

Luck is expected to throw again Friday. He will participate in Saturday’s practice, but will not throw and then will return to full action Sunday night when the Colts are scheduled to practice in pads.

The hope is he will be ready to play in the Colts’ preseason opener Aug. 9 at Seattle.

”Working together for so long, we just went through a walkthrough for an hour and as soon as we did it, it was like old times. Same cadence,” Kelly said before practice. ”It’s crazy how fast things come back to you.”

Notes: The Colts activated offensive lineman Denzelle Good from the non-injury football list. Left tackle Anthony Castonzo and backup offensive lineman Austin Howard have been placed on the non-football injury list. Castonzo hurt his hamstring while working out this summer. Howard’s injury has not been disclosed.
