INDIANAPOLIS –
At next week's NFL Combine, Chris Ballard and Chuck Pagano will meet the media.

A topic that will most certainly arise during their podium press conferences will be on the health of their quarterback, a talent other NFL teams will be praying to find at the Combine.

Team Owner Jim Irsay said on Sunday that Andrew Luck is "healing" from right shoulder surgery, a procedure he had done in January.

When the offseason program begins in mid-April, Luck's availability is unknown.

A timetable update on Luck, from Ballard or Pagano next week, would offer some insight into how the first-team offense will operate when the offseason picks up with team activities.

One would guess Luck won't be trying to coax Pagano into more reps this time around, like he did back in a 2013 loss to the Rams.

After a quiet couple of weeks in the offseason things will begin to pick up for the Colts.

The Combine runs February 28-March 6.

Over the next two weeks, we will see pending free agents re-signed by their own teams before the new league year commences on March 9.

Once free agency fizzles out, the next important dates on the NFL off-season calendar will be the League's Annual Meetings (March 26-29) and the start of OTAs (April 17).

Next week could provide an answer to how much the Colts are expecting Luck to participate in the team's offseason program.
