Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck met with reporters on Monday, and noted he still has a ways to go in his recovery from his shoulder injury.
He missed all of last season because of the injury to his right shoulder.
"(I am) not a perfect feeling athlete right now," he said, adding he "pushed a little too hard" in his attempt to return to action after having surgery in January 2017.
As a result he is going to make sure he gets through each step of his rehab, admitting that he has skipped steps in the past.
"I need to stay this course," Luck said.
Luck clarified what had been reported regarding the comments of new Colts head coach Frank Reich last week. Luck is not throwing regulation-size footballs yet, as had been reported by some media outlets.
Reich said Tuesday Luck has begun throwing "smaller footballs," and Luck confirmed on Monday that is the case at the moment.
Luck said there is a timetable in place for him to move to the next step in his throwing program, but did not say what that timetable was.
