Andrew Luck Recovering from Surgery; Meaning Colts Must Shore Up Pass Protection

Luck threw for 4,240 yards and 31 touchdowns and 13 interceptions this season for a quarterback rating of 96.4 and a QBR of 71.2.

That being said, the fact that Luck is recovering from right shoulder surgery isn't a positive sign for the Colts and only adds more salt to the wounds of what was a disappointing season.

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay announced on Thursday that quarterback Andrew Luck has undergone injury on a troublesome throwing shoulder.

Andrew Luck had a terrific season in 2016 despite playing behind one of the worst offensive lines in football.

Irsay in October 2016: "I can tell you Andrew's shoulder is not a serious issue". That means Lucks's eyeing a full recovery by mid-July, before training camp opens.

Luck's recovery timetable will prevent him from throwing for three months and it'll take him six months to fully recover, a source informed of the situation told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

"No", Luck said, "I don't think so".

At the time, Colts general manager Ryan Grigson said "Our injury reports are accurate". There's no concern about Luck's availability for Week 1.

So which Irsay should we trust?
