Carson Wentz 'Feels Good' After First Practice Since Tearing ACL

Jul 30, 2018 11:05 AM

Carson Wentz practiced with pads on for the first time on Saturday since he tore ligaments in his left knee.

Wentz was on the field for nearly three hours.

Went'z initial recovery time was expected to be nine-to-12 months.

“I feel good,” he said. “I feel good. What my goal has been all along is to be ready Week 1. I can’t say 100 percent that I’ll be out there. But I do feel good where I’m at. At the end of the day, it’s not gonna be my call. It’s gonna be up to the doctors. But rehab’s gone really well. I felt like I’ve been right on schedule and everything. I feel good with where I’m at. At this point I just go practice and do what I can and let the doctors make the calls.”

Andrew Luck Hasn't Suffered Any Setbacks

Jul 29, 2018 9:08 PM

Andrew Luck practiced fully during the first two days of training camp before being limited to just handing the ball off and doing moving-in-the-pocket drills without throwing Saturday as part of a rest day with his arm that was preplanned heading into training camp. The Colts are keeping a close eye on Luck throughout the entire process.

Luck hasn't experienced any pain, which is a significant sign.

"Jitters like before a game for that first practice. Haven't felt that way in a long time," Luck said about his first training camp since 2016. "Responding well. Name of the game for me is to improve every day. Feeling-wise. Technique-wise."

Andrew Luck To Throw Without Limitations When Camp Starts

Jul 20, 2018 4:28 PM

Andrew Luck will start taking reps when training camp begins for the Indianapolis Colts on July 26th.

Luck will not throw every day during training camp. The Colts, as it was discussed during minicamp, want Luck to mimic the regular season as much as possible when it comes to him throwing.

"Andrew is an elite competitor and a pretty rare one," Ballard said. "I think we've seen that during his career. I think it's more of playing live football again. I don't think there's any mental restrictions. I think it's more of getting the live reps verses live people. That's the timing, getting use to moving in the pocket. All those are the things you have to get use to."

Luck originally injured his right shoulder against Tennessee in Week 3 of the 2015 season.

Luck had surgery on his right shoulder in January 2017 after playing through pain in it the entire 2016 season. He missed the team's offseason workouts, all of training camp and eventually the entire 2017 season.
