Colts QB Andrew Luck may need biceps tendon surgery

Andrew Luck warms up before the National Football League game between the Indianapolis Colts and the Houston Texans at NRG Stadium on October 16, 2016. Luck chose the conservative path with treatment and rehab in Europe, sources said.

The Indianapolis Colts' franchise quarterback is expected to return to Indianapolis, perhaps as soon as next week, and resume a throwing regimen to determine the progress of his long rehabilitation from January surgery to fix a torn labrum in his right shoulder, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

The next stage is for Luck to engage in a throwing regimen that previously resulted in a setback, with pain and discomfort in the same throwing arm that underwent surgery in mid-January to fix a torn labrum.

The surgery comes with a 3-6 month recovery timeline and they'd like to know if it's needed by mid-January, which means Luck should be back on these shores soon with a better idea of his medical outlook after a lost 2017 season.

Luck is optimistic he can avoid another surgery based on the results of his extended European treatment and rehab, sources told ESPN.

First up will be "a throwing regimen" for Luck when he gets back from his trip overseas.

Colts general manager Chris Ballard has not put a timetable on Luck's return.

If Andrew Luck experiences the same sort of pain when he begins throwing again, he may be forced to go under the knife again. He experienced pain the last time he threw and if that pain returns, Luck would likely undergo a tenodesis procedure to relocate his biceps tendon. He was placed on the injured reserve list on November 3, ending his season.

You don't exactly have to read between the lines to find the narrative the team is hoping to push out, that Luck either needs to play through what ails him or go under the knife once and for all.
