Colts QB Luck won't throw at minicamp

Andrew Luck is in attendance at the Indianapolis Colts' voluntary minicamp that kicked off Tuesday, but the quarterback won't throw this week as he continues to rehab his right shoulder.

Colts general manager Chris Ballard told reporters last week that Luck has yet to throwing regulation footballs. However, he noted the team remains confident its franchise quarterback will make a full recovery, as evidenced by Indianapolis moving down from No. 3 to No. 6 in the first round of Thursday's draft.

"We traded the third pick in the draft to move back to 6," Ballard said last Friday. "I think that said we're pretty confident in where he's at."

Luck, 28, hasn't thrown an NFL football since October and hasn't played in a game since New Year's Day of 2017, but the team is not rushing his recovery. After his initial surgery in January 2017, Luck suffered a setback two weeks after returning to practice in October and has since taken more gradual steps in preparing to return.

Earlier this month, Luck declined to share his expected timetable, but he said he wants to begin training camp "without a governor," hoping to be practicing fully without restrictions.

Luck said he is throwing a smaller, lighter football as he continues to build up to regulation size.
