INDIANAPOLIS – We haven’t seen Andrew Luck since he was on the sideline of an Oct. 29 game in Cincinnati.
Because Luck remains in Europe getting treatment on a right shoulder issue that has lingered for more than two years.
Chuck Pagano said on Monday that he isn’t sure exactly where Luck is in Europe, but the Colts are in contact with their franchise quarterback.
“He’s doing fine, communicating via email and text, making progress,” Pagano said of the injured quarterback.
“He’s communicating with our docs and our trainers and they’re all communicating together.”
Pagano’s vagueness in details on Luck shouldn’t be too surprising.
For one, Pagano has always been reserved in how much Luck information he’s wiling to share.
Second, Luck’s contact with the Colts should be more with Chris Ballard and team doctors.
It is still rare to see Luck away from the team.
Even when Luck was sidelined for nearly half of the 2015 season, he was still present on game day, no matter if it was on the road or at home.
This injury situation is clearly more complicated, hence the reason for Luck remaining in Europe.
Luck is expected to meet the media on Jan. 1, the day after the 2017 regular season concludes.
