Andrew Luck says his surgically repaired right shoulder feels good and he hopes to be on the field when the Indianapolis Colts open training camp this summer.
And he partially blames his desire to come back too soon for the prolonged rehab process.
Tuesday marked the first time in more than three months that the Colts quarterback took questions about his injury. He missed all of last season after having surgery on a partially torn labrum.
Luck says he understands why fans would question whether he will be the same player when he returns, but he is asking for patience because he believes he will be a better quarterback this fall.
