Quarterback Andrew Luck will open training camp on the physically unable to perform list, general manager Chris Ballard said Monday.
Luck has also started a throwing program following offseason shoulder surgery. Despite his placement on the PUP list, Ballard stated the former Stanford star’s recovery status is “we’re exactly where I thought we’d be at this time.”
During his time as a Cardinal, Luck put up a mind-boggling 82:22 touchdown-to-interception ratio and completed over 70 percent of his throws in his final two seasons in Palo Alto.
Luck is entering his sixth NFL season after he was selected No. 1 overall by the Colts in the 2012 NFL Draft. In 15 games last season, he threw for 4,240 yards and 31 touchdowns.
The gunslinger’s recent injury troubles are a big reason why he’s an important storyline during training camp. He first hurt his shoulder back in October 2015, which caused him to miss two games. He later suffered a lacerated kidney that cost him the remainder of that campaign.
