ESPN's Chris Mortensen has been all over this Andrew Luck story during his long road to recovery from shoulder surgery last offseason, and he's providing the latest update on the Colts' franchise quarterback's status.
Luck hasn't practiced with full contact since undergoing surgery last January to address a torn labrum in his throwing shoulder.
The quarterback is scheduled back from Europe following treatment on his shoulder.
Panthers, owner Jerry Richardson reached settlements on sexual, racial allegations, per report
Erskine Bowles, a limited owner with the team and a former White House Chief of Staff, was overseeing the probe. Because of the investigation, the Panthers told SI they would not comment publicly on the specific allegations.
If surgery is needed for Luck, he will be hovering around a similar timetable that he went through a year ago.
Seeing how Luck responds to this new throwing program is paramount for, obviously, the quarterback's playing outlook in 2018, and needed for the team looking ahead to the offseason. Luck has been in Europe receiving treatment and is set to return next week, according Mortensen. He was working his way back during practice when he started to begin feeling pain due to biceps tendinitis, which caused him to shut it down for the year.
If Luck experiences additional pain during this next step, there would then be "an urgent discussion will occur for Luck to undergo a corrective surgery that involves relocating the biceps tendon that is attached to the repaired labrum", according to Mortensen.
So they say Eagles-Giants Week 17
Carson Wentz provided a unique safety net to the offense that has been largely responsible for their success this season. The Eagles have been fantastic against the spread this season, but they lost their best player of the year last week.
Mortensen reports that Luck is optimistic that things will go well, but that surgery will be an option if pain returns once he resumes throwing. He was placed on the injured reserve list on November 3, ending his season.
Luck, who has not taken a snap in a game since Week 17 last season, underwent surgery to fix a torn labrum on January 15. The latest information has been encouraging but without the benefit of throwing the football.
