As recently as a week ago, the Indianapolis Colts didn't have any idea as to when Andrew Luck, their $140 million franchise quarterback, might return to practice.

After years of spotty oversight regarding Luck's recovery from shoulder injuries, which have kept the three-time Pro Bowler off the field since the end of the 2016 season, it's no surprise the Colts aren't sure about the timetable.

And yet, according to new head coach Frank Reich, the expectation is now for Luck to be with the team for offseason training as early as April.

Addressing the media from the scouting combine this week, Reich announced Wednesday that Luck is continuing to "check all the boxes" in rehabilitation from his last surgery, plus that the former No. 1 overall draft pick will be ready for the start of the Colts' spring program.
