Andrew Luck, confident and optimistic about returning from shoulder injury

Andrew Luck is not yet pitching regularly and the Colts quarterback has not revealed what the deadline is or when it may happen. What Luck would say, however, is that he wants to be in the training camp this summer without limitations on the shoulder that was repaired with a surgery. "There's a deadline, but I'm not going to share it with you guys," Luck said. "I feel very, very confident and very, very optimistic that I will be completely well and that I will return better than I was, I will be a better quarterback, a better teammate, a better person."

Luck told the media that they will not see much during the offseason work that concludes with the mandatory minicamp of the team in mid-June. In front of the media for the first time, since December 29, Luck was firm in saying he does not plan to skip a single step during his current rehabilitation. That's part of the reason why Luck and the team have taken a cautious approach on when to launch. The quarterback has been using a smaller ball to work on his pitching mechanics.Get the best odds for premium soccer bettings.

"There is a process," said Luck. "Before I ignored and skipped steps and paid for it, I've had pain and I have not been able to help the team, sorry, guilty, whatever, I'm not going to do that again, I trust people with the I am working, most importantly, I trust myself in this process I trust how I feel Progress is the light that guides me If I am making progress I know it is important There is a plan in progress and I will continue to trust at".

The injury to the right shoulder has been the focal point for the Colts' organization since the player underwent surgery in January 2017. Last year, he lost all the off-season work, the training camp and eventually , the entire campaign. Luck trained for a couple of weeks in mid-October before the team sent him to rest and gave him a shot of cortisone because the pain continued. He spent about six weeks in Europe, rehabilitating himself on the shoulder, late last year and has been the first part of 2018 working with launch experts in Southern California.

"I would not say I'm changing my launch mechanics," said Luck. "There are things I can do better from scratch and there's a big part that I've been working on, making sure I'm using my body as effectively as possible to play football." The ultimate goal is to have Luck back as the quarterback who did not miss a single significant snap during his first three seasons in the NFL, while leading the Colts to the playoffs in each of those seasons. He has missed 26 games in the last three seasons - all seasons in which the Colts have failed to reach the playoffs - since he injured his shoulder originally in Week 3 of the 2015 season. "I guess there's a certain amount of guilt I've lived with not being able to play last year," Luck said. "I was not there for the team, and it sounds a bit cheesy and funny, it was very difficult, I put a lot of my own courage into being available for this team and being the best I could for this team. healthy in the world that can be done.
