Alshon Jeffery Out Six Months With Shoulder Surgery

Feb 21, 2018 7:02 PM

Alshon Jeffery will be out at least six months after undergoing shoulder surgery on a torn rotator cuff.

Jeffery played through the injury all season as he suffered it during training camp.

Jeffery started all 16 games and finished with 57 catches for 789 yards and a team-leading nine touchdowns.

Jeffery signed a four-year, $52 million extension with $27 million in guaranteed money in December after betting on himself with a one-year deal last offseason.

Andrew Luck: 'Ship Has Sailed' On Second Shoulder Surgery

Feb 21, 2018 9:07 AM

Andrew Luck says the thought of having a second surgery on his right shoulder has "sailed."

Luck is continuing rehabilitation on his surgically repaired right shoulder.

"Oh, [surgery] is not an option for me right now," the Indianapolis Colts quarterback said. "I feel very, very good about where I am. So that ship has sailed in my mind, which is also a bit of a relief. I'm not going to lie."

The Colts have undergone almost a complete overhaul in the past 13 months, with a new general manager, a new head coach and likely an entirely new coaching staff. But a significant part of their success in the future will center on Luck's health.
