Rumors swirled back in 2016 that in addition to a torn labrum, Colts quarterback Andrew Luck had suffered an injury to his throwing shoulder snowboarding.
Luck confirmed the injury to Ian Rapoport, but doesn’t believe it contributed to his issues recovering from the labrum injury. He’s since given up snowboarding.
“I don’t snowboard anymore,” Luck said. “And this was after the initial injury. I went back, rehabbed it with the Colts. I’ve had a bunch of AC sprains, both left and right shoulder, and resolved that issue. But the labrum has been my issue, was my issue, what I worked through, what I got surgery on.”
Luck does not believe the AC sprain affected his torn labrum. He was adamant it did not slow his rehab.
“I’ve seen more doctors than I can count on two hands over the past two or three years,” Luck said, “and the consensus — unanimous — is that the AC is not an issue, nor did it have an effect. The labrum is an issue.”
The labrum might have been the main issue, but another injury to the shoulder at the same time can’t help. If it didn’t have any effect on the recovery, then why give up snowboarding? Luck might be on the field but he isn’t the Luck of old.
