INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano says Andrew Luck is “making progress” as he continues to undergo rehab in Europe.

Pagano made the announcement Monday. He says the Colts have been in touch with Luck through email and text messages.

Luck has not played since having surgery in January on his throwing shoulder after playing the entire 2016 season with a partially torn labrum.

It looked like Luck might return after returning to practice in October. But when the pain lingered, Luck sought additional opinions and eventually Indianapolis put him on season-ending injured reserve in November.

At the time, general manager Chris Ballard said he did not believe Luck will need additional surgery.

Luck has not answered questions since going on injured reserve.
