Andrew Luck Placed on the PUP List

1st-round pick Malik Hooker watches practice at rookie minicamp

He said he's enjoyed watching Luck interact with his teammates.

The Indianapolis Colts' most indispensable player began throwing last week as part of his rehabilitation from January surgery to fix a torn labrum in his right shoulder. He can come off the PUP list at any point in the preseason, so the move may be precautionary in case he has a setback and would need to be placed on the regular season PUP list.

Luck has started a throwing program and is expected to be healthy in time for the regular season.

While the early-camp absence is obviously not ideal, Ballard insists Luck has encountered no setbacks in his recovery from offseason shoulder surgery. The Colts open the regular season September 10 at the Los Angeles Rams. "Whether that means he plays in preseason or doesn't play in preseason, that's up to our doctors and trainers to tell us where he's at and for Andrew to tell us where he's at".

Luck, who threw for 31 touchdowns and completed a career-high 63.5 percent of his passes in 2016, had surgery to fix a torn labrum last winter. Geathers missed the following game because of a concussion and eventually was placed on injured reserve on December 12 with the neck injury. "We are going to make sure, obviously, that the shoulder has to be ready and the doctors are going to give full approval before he starts putting real reps on it and that sort of thing". He originally suffered the injury in Week 3 of the 2015 season.

Ballard also says safety Clayton Geathers will go on the PUP list with a neck injury that will keep him out of at least the first six games of the regular season. The first-round draft pick was held out of all of the team's offseason work after undergoing surgery following his final season at Ohio State.

Along with Luck, the Colts will open camp with defensive end Kendall Langford (knee) and guard Brian Schwenke (ankle) on PUP.
