Andrew Luck is throwing footballs again.

Indianapolis Colts coach Frank Reich said Tuesday that Luck has begun to
throw as part of the rehab for his surgically repaired shoulder. Luck missed the
entire 2017 season because of the injury.

Reich said he hasn’t seen Luck in action
yet Josh Allen
, but the franchise quarterback is clearly making progress after
spending time in California working with quarterback mechanics gurus Tom House
and Adam Dedeaux.

Luck led the Colts to 11 wins in each of his first three seasons and went to
the Pro Bowl three times. He has missed 26 games in the past three seasons and
Indianapolis hasn’t reached the playoffs since losing the AFC championship
”Deflategate” game to New England in January 2015.

Luck is expected to participate when the Colts begin their workout program
April 9.

Reich was the offensive coordinator for the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia
Eagles last season and helped Carson Wentz develop into an MVP candidate before
he went down with a torn ACL. Backup Nick Foles stepped in and was sensational
in the playoffs, earning Super Bowl MVP honors.

Reich, who got the Colts job when Josh McDaniels backed out to return to New
England as offensive coordinator, is excited to work with Luck, one of the NFL’s
elite QBs when healthy. Reich spoke at his first league meetings as a head coach
since replacing Chuck Pagano.

The Colts were 4-12 last season but Reich saw the Eagles go from last place
in 2016 to Super Bowl champs.

”No one is playing for second place,” Reich said. ”We’re not playing to just
improve. We’re playing for championships. I’m not being paid (for rebuilding).
There’s not one ounce of me that’s being patient. There’s not one ounce of me
that thinks we’re in a rebuilding project. Every ounce of me feels like we’re
winning this year. We were 4-12 last year. That can turn around with a few
breaks, staying
healthy Joe

The Colts will need Luck healthy to compete in the AFC South.

Indianapolis made a big trade with the New York Jets to potentially add
talented players who can contribute right away. The Colts moved down just three
spots, from No. 3 to No. 6 overall in the draft, and acquired two second-round
picks this year and one in 2019.

Don’t expect them to draft one of the top quarterbacks in the draft class:
Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, Josh Rosen and Baker Mayfield.

”I think it’s the best class I’ve ever seen,” Reich joked. ”They should go

Oklahoma City Thunder forward Carmelo Anthony plans to opt in and take the
$28 million he is due next season.

The New York Times first reported the 34-year-old Anthony’s decision to
bypass the chance to become a free agent. A person with knowledge of details
confirmed Anthony’s choice to The Associated Press on Friday night. The person
spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the
situation publicly.

The Thunder traded for Anthony and Paul George to join Russell Westbrook
before last season, moves that gave them high hopes of challenging Golden State
in the West. It didn’t work out as planned.

The 34-year-old Anthony had been the headliner his entire career – he’s 19th
in NBA history with
25 Tarik Cohen
,417 points – but he was more of a catch-and-shoot scorer last
season instead of the isolation specialist he had always been. He averaged 16.2
points per game, but struggled at times in his new role. His playing time
dwindled in the playoffs and he wasn’t happy. In Game 6 of the first-round
playoff series against Utah that ended Oklahoma City’s season, he played fewer
minutes than backup Jerami Grant.

It wasn’t entirely clear if Anthony would opt in. After the season, he said
he prefers to play with the ball in his hands more and said coming off the bench
is ”out of the question.”

”So it’s something I really have to think about, if I really want to be this
type of player, finish out my career as this type of player, knowing that I have
so much left in the tank and I bring so much to the game of
basketball…us-white-jersey ,”
he said.

Despite his confidence, the 10-time All-Star posted career lows in scoring
average and field goal percentage last season. Thunder general manager Sam
Presti said at the end of the season that he doesn’t expect Anthony’s role to

”I give him an enormous amount of credit for the fact that he put both feet
in,” Presti said. ”I personally think he did an excellent job in his first year
transitioning his game, working to becoming more of an off-the-ballplayer, being
more reliant on other people to generate his offense, and sacrificing a lot. At
the same time, I think every player is entitled to take a step back after the
season Josh
Gordon Jersey Elite
, reflect on the year they had, and in his case have
to make a determination about whether or not this is a role that he wants to
continue to be functioning in.”
