Quarterback Andrew Luck won’t practice for a third consecutive week as he embarks on visits to specialists to find the source of continued soreness in his throwing shoulder, Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano said Monday. Luck is expected to see additional specialists because a cortisone shot he recently received did not adequately address the pain, according to an NFL source. On Monday, Pagano said the focus now is not on getting Luck back on the field for 2017, but for his long-term health. “We’re going to exhaust all resources (in) the best interest (of) the player,” Pagano said. “And it’s long term, the next 10, 12 years for this guy – for any player. So, before we put anybody out there, we want to make sure he’s right. So, we’re going to stick to that process.” Chris Ballard, the Colts' general manager, hopes the team can learn more this week. He discussed Luck on the team's weekly radio show on WFNI-1070 AM.
