Colts quarterback Andrew Luck revealed that part of his recent shoulder troubles can be attributed to an injury he suffered while snowboarding.
Luck’s revelation confirms a rumor that some say began with a story from an Uber driver.
Luck admitted he sprained his AC joint in his throwing shoulder in a snowboarding accident in Colorado in 2016, a year after he suffered a torn labrum in his right shoulder. However, the former Stanford star insists the snowboarding incident had nothing to with him missing all of last season.
“I’m obviously not snowboarding anymore,” Luck said in an interview with NFL.com that was aired Sunday. “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.”
Nonetheless, one can question why Luck put himself in danger knowing his prized throwing arm was still an issue.
Luck’s woes had lingered to the point where he had to undergo surgery in January 2017 for an injury that kept him off the field until Sunday.

The top pick in the 2012 draft fell short of the triumphant return he hoped for when the Colts were beaten 34-23 by the Bengals. But, Luck did acquit himself well on the field, completing 39 of 53 passes for 319 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He also threw an interception.
