The Indianapolis Colts will gladly play

They’d rather he be healthy for training camp anyway.Just minutes after coach Frank Reich announced Tuesday that his starting quarterback would sit out this week’s three-day minicamp — the final portion of Indy’s offseason workouts — Luck promised he would return to practice when the Colts report to camp in late July.“It’s OK Ed Oliver Jersey , it’s not good enough to practice this week, which I’m bummed about,” Luck said, describing the injury. “But I think we’re on a very, very good page and I’ll be ready for training camp.”The injury, suffered during training, has forced Luck to miss the Colts’ entire on-the-field program for the second offseason in three years.But this was different.After missing the entire 2017 season to recover from surgery on his throwing shoulder, he started throwing again last June during the team’s mandatory minicamp. His appearance raised even more questions when it appeared he was throwing footballs smaller than the NFL’s regulation size.Team officials continued to be cautious with Luck at training camp when they closely monitored the number of throws he made and gave him extra days off. The prolonged recovery time prompted some skeptics to question whether Luck could ever return to his Pro Bowl form.It didn’t take long for Luck to prove the doubters wrong. He produced arguably the best season of his pro career and was rewarded with the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year award.This year, many outsiders expect bigger and better things from Luck and his teammates, and Luck sounds confident he can deliver despite the nagging injury.“I’ve thrown significantly, sort of off my foot to make sure I don’t aggravate something, but to keep my arm in shape,” he said. “It’s a football, a pigskin Wilson Duke, with Roger Goodell’s signature on it.”Reich has continually insisted that Luck’s absence was a cautionary move.He has no serious concerns about Luck’s health, and with seven seasons in the league, two full offseasons to get acclimated to the system and most of last season’s key offensive contributors returning, Reich figures Luck’s absence should not hinder his play.“He has missed the on-field work but he has gotten so much in the meetings http://www.billsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-cody-ford-jersey ,” Reich said. “Second year in the system, talking through things, he’s been able to have even more input into the system this year, putting his imprint on the system now knowing what we’re doing, what he likes, what he doesn’t, and why he likes what he likes in our system.”Indy can’t wait to see how things play out in training camp. But the last month certainly has presented some challenges, and not just because of Luck.Rookie center Javon Patterson, a seventh-round draft pick, and defensive end Jegs Jegede, an undrafted rookie from Valdosta State, landed on season-ending injured reserve.Fourth-string quarterback Chad Kelly will miss the first two regular-season games for violating the league’s personal conduct policy. Backup offensive tackle Antonio Garcia received a four-game suspension Monday for violating the league policy on performance-enhancing substances.General manager Chris Ballard explained last week why he drafted linebacker Bobby Okereke in the third round, knowing Okereke had been accused of sexual assault in 2015.And after re-signing 11 of the team’s 20 free agents and adding receiver Devin Funchess, running back Spencer Ware and pass rusher Justin Houston, Ballard signed punter Rigoberto Sanchez to a contract extension last week, and long snapper Luke Rhodes to an extension Tuesday.All that’s missing now is Luck.“Within the calf strain injury, I’d say it’s on the longer side. I don’t think it’s out of the range of a calf strain but it’s definitely on the longer side,” Reich said. “We’re not concerned.” ENGLEWOOD Devin Singletary Jersey , Colo. (AP) — Broncos pass rusher Von Miller quickly sacked any notion that there’s nothing left to play for in a season that’s gone awry.Sure, the playoffs are gone. But there’s winning the final two games to finish 8-8 and avoid back-to-back losing seasons for the first time since 1972. There’s also fellow pass rusher Bradley Chubb closing in on the NFL rookie sack record. Or undrafted rookie running back Phillip Lindsay needing nine yards to reach 1,000.Miller insisted he won’t have any trouble finding the prerequisite motivation.“I really hate that question, when somebody asks you, ‘What are you playing for?'” said Miller, whose team visits Oakland (3-11) on Christmas Eve and finishes against the Los Angeles Chargers (11-3) at home on Dec. 30. “When I was a young kid, I never thought about the playoffs. I never thought about winning a Super Bowl. I just wanted to play the game I love. It’s no different now. … If you don’t feel like that, we’re in the wrong place. We have the wrong job title.”The Broncos (6-8) were officially eliminated from the postseason last weekend on the heels of a 17-16 loss to Cleveland. Now, the big question hovering over this team centers on this: Will coach Vance Joseph be back next season?Miller keeps his focus on the field.“Where we are right now, there’s still a lot of stuff for us to play for,” Miller said.Like Chubb breaking the NFL’s rookie mark for sacks since it became an official statistic in 1982. He’s got 12 this season and remains three away from overtaking the mark of Jevon Kearse, who had 14 1/2 in 1999 with Tennessee.Being the season of giving, Miller might even give Chubb an early holiday gift to help him reach the milestone.“I can get close to the sack, let him slip out of my hands,” Miller cracked.Somehow, Chubb doesn’t quite buy that.“I highly doubt that will happen because he’s got to get his, too,” said Chubb http://www.billsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-dawson-knox-jersey , the fifth overall pick out of North Carolina State.Miller remains just two sacks away from 100 for his career. He’s already the Broncos’ all-time sacks leader, surpassing Simon Fletcher (97 ½ from 1985-95).“I want to play the best I can to keep that attention over here by me to get Chubb a real one-on-one,” said Miller, who recently garnered his seventh Pro Bowl selection. “We all know what type of football player he is and what type of leader he is, but I love playing with cool and collected guys that get on the field and can hold their own. Bradley Chubb is definitely that.”At this stage, the temptation for the Broncos might be to start looking toward next season. But the Broncos won’t be experimenting with backup quarterback Kevin Hogan but plan to stick with Case Keenum over the final two games.“This is a great opportunity with a lot of young guys to really build on what we’ve already built here,” Keenum said. “To continue to lay the foundation and really get some momentum going for the offseason and for next season, for sure.”Lindsay has been a bright spot by becoming the first undrafted offensive player to make the Pro Bowl as a rookie. He has 991 yards rushing and nine TDs.He deflected any sort of praise.“It’s just a milestone that the offensive line deserves because they’ve been working,” Lindsay said. “I’m just thinking about my teammates and just finishing the season out with a bang.”On Thursday, Miller and his teammates hosted first responders after practice as they distributed protective kits designed for police and firefighters responding to shooting situations. Miller was behind a commitment in November of more than $200,000 to support a program designed to improve local law enforcement relations through SHIELD616, a Colorado Springs-based nonprofit organization.“To create this connection with law enforcement and people is definitely incredible,” Miller said. “It makes me feel good to make other people feel good. I’m blown away to be a part of this project. It’s cool.”NOTES: TE Matt LaCosse (ankle) and CB Brendan Langley (concussion protocol) didn’t practice Thursday. LB Shaquil Barrett (hip), WR Courtland Sutton (quadriceps), CB Isaac Yiadom (shoulder) and LB Brandon Marshall (knee) were limited. … Joseph on the significance of finishing the season .500: “We don’t want to go out two years in a row with a losing record.”
