Colts GM Chris Ballard told reporters on Monday that QB Andrew Luck has started throwing, but he will open training camp on their active/PUP list.
“We’re exactly where I thought we’d be at this time,” Ballard said of Luck’s recovery from shoulder surgery, per Goerge Bremer.
“Let me make this perfectly clear,” Ballard added, per Andrew Siciliano. “Andrew has not had any setbacks.”
Luck, 27, is a former first-round pick of the Colts back in 2012. He’s currently in the first year of his six-year, $139.125 million contract that includes $87 million guaranteed and is set to make a base salary of $12 million for the 2016 season.
In 2016, Luck has appeared in 15 games and thrown for 4,240 yards while completing 63.5 percent of his passes for 31 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 4 quarterback out of 36 qualifying players.
