Colts QB Andrew Luck to Start Training Camp on PUP List

Colts QB Andrew Luck to Start Training Camp on PUP List

The team struggles to put their starters on the field consistently and that continues to be the case.

The throwing portion of Luck's rehab is critical though because as of the most recent update before Monday, Luck had not begun throwing overhand.

The good news is Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is throwing footballs again.

Luck is expected to be ready to suit up and play in Week 1 with no setbacks.

"We're exactly where I thought we were going to be at this time", Ballard said.

In the same presser, Ballard relayed that Luck had began some throwing about a week ago and was beginning weight training as well, Stephen Holder pointed out via Twitter. It just is not worth it to push him back to action too early for a meaningless exhibition game.

No one should be surprised if Luck sits out the four-game preseason.

The other bit of news the team gave is not as positive. With Clayton Geathers sidelined, it's time for T.J. He has quickly established himself as a bright, young star for the Colts. The Colts routinely enjoyed using Geathers' playmaking ability to stack the box and come closer to the line in run defense situations. That came on the heels of Luck missing nine games in 2015 with a variety of injuries, including a lacerated kidney. Now, the Colts need to figure out how to replace him for almost half of the season.

With Geathers out, the Colts are likely to open the season with rookie Malik Hooker at free safety and converted cornerback Darius Butler at strong safety. Patience is needed with Luck, while Geathers' status is still frustrating.

Ballard also said the decision to keep camp at the team's West 56th Street complex this year could be a short-term move. The Colts hope that injuries like these do not start piling up or else this could be yet another frustrating year.
