Andrew Luck Feeling Better, Hopeful Of Being Ready For Camp

Apr 9, 2018 4:48 PM

Andrew Luck says his surgically repaired right shoulder feels better and is hopeful of being on the field when training camp opens.

"There is a timetable but I'm not going to share it with you guys," Luck said Monday. "I've very, very confident and very, very optimistic I'm going to be absolutely fine and come back better than I was. I'll be a better quarterback, a better teammates, a better person."

Luck has been working with a reduced-sized football to work on his throwing motion.

"There's a process," Luck said. "I've gone and skipped steps before and paid for it. Been in pain and not able to help the team. Embarrassed, guilty, whatever. I'm not going to do that again. I trust the people I'm working with. More importantly, I trust myself in this process. I trust how I feel. Progress is my guiding light. If I'm making progress, I know that's important. There is a plan in place and I'll keep trusting it."

Luck underwent surgery on his shoulder in January of 2017.

"I wouldn't say (I'm) changing my throwing motion," Luck said. "There are things in my throwing motion that I can do better from the ground up and that's a big part of what I've been working on, making sure I'm using my body as effectively as possible to throw a football and not over or under compensate in any way."
