“No limitations,” the quarterback said.
That’s what everybody has been waiting to hear from Luck since it became obvious that he was dealing with injuries from Week 3 on last season. Luck’s comments follow what general manager Ryan Grigson said last month when he reminded everybody that their franchise player was “fine, fine, fine.”
So, simply put: Andrew Luck is back.
Luck was on the field during the team’s second day of OTAs, throwing the ball with plenty of zip to running backs, receivers and tight ends.
Luck didn’t miss a snap due to injury during his first three seasons, but things changed for him last season. Not only did he miss snaps, he missed games. Injuries to his kidney, ribs and shoulder caused the quarterback to miss nine games.
“When something’s taken away from you, it gives you more appreciation of it,” Luck said.
Coach Chuck Pagano added, "He looks really good. I think he’s in a good place. I know he missed a lot of time, but he’s doing a great job. He’s just really, really happy to be back on the football field and playing football. He’s always been a gladiator when it comes to preparation."
