It’s been a whirlwind 24 hours for the Indianapolis Colts, and not in a good way. But after Josh McDaniels would instead choose to stay with the Patriots, there is at least some good news. Quarterback and franchise cornerstone Andrew Luck doesn’t require more surgery.

And that comes from GM Chris Ballard.

Let’s talk about Andrew. Because there’s a lot of rumors. Everybody’s an expert right now.

Go on…

I’m going to listen to Andrew Luck, I’m going to listen to the doctors, and I’m going to listen to the guy who’s training him right now. At this point, we feel very strongly that Andrew’s in a good place. He doesn’t need surgery. His strength is good. He’s working on his arm motion and he’s working on his arm speed right now.

That’s that then. But don’t worry, the Colts aren’t going to be reckless. After all, the last thing they need is Andrew Luck sitting out another season.

He’s not going to skip a step.

Right now, Luck isn’t at the point of throwing footballs. But that’s okay. For the Colts, his return is worth the wait. Without him last season, they would finish 4-12. They haven’t had a winning season since 2014, which is also the last time the Colts found themselves in the postseason.

So that’s something to look forward to, right?
