INDIANAPOLIS – Observe.
Like he's done for the first eight weeks of the 2017 offseason program, Andrew Luck will just be watching at this week's mandatory minicamp.
Chuck Pagano said on Tuesday that Luck will not be doing any physical activity as the franchise quarterback continues his rehab from January shoulder surgery.
No timeframe for Luck to start throwing has been given, but Pagano did say that's next up in the rehab process.
"The next step is getting (Luck) to the point where he can throw," Pagano said on Tuesday. "And then there's going to be a number, a pitch count, on him, and he's going to have to continue to build from the ground floor up.
"We will just listen, as we always do, to our doctors and trainers, and listen to Andrew. He knows himself and his body better than anyone else."
The Colts will begin Training Camp in late July, which is when the 'Luck watch' will really ramp up. The 2017 season opener for the Colts is Sept. 10.
Pagano was asked on Tuesday if Luck will be ready for Training Camp.
"Am I hopeful? Am I praying? Yeah, so is everybody," Pagano said.
"We all want him out there. But again, there is really no timetable on it."
Last week, Owner Jim Irsay shared some more details on the severity of Luck's surgery.
"Andrew is healing tremendously," Irsay said. "This (surgery) has been a positive thing, not a negative thing or anything like that. He was really struggling going through the process of being ready to play (for each week last season).
"This was, quite frankly, not that complicated of a surgery. This was a simple labrum repair. There are a lot of other things that could have been involved with this surgery that weren't."
