A PAINFUL PERIOD! Colts, who are inconsolable over the loss of their left quatreback, have suffered an enormous setback.

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Anthony Richardson, who is rehabbing from a season-ending Grade 3 AC joint sprain in his right shoulder, is experiencing soreness in that shoulder as he goes through rehab.

Colts head coach Shane Steichen revealed the news to reporters but noted that Richardson could still play if needed, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Richardson, a former standout player at Florida, was chosen by the Colts with the fourth overall choice in the 2023 NFL Draft. Although he participated in just four games before his season ended too soon, he showed glimpses of promise the previous year.

The 22-year-old gained 577 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception on 59.5 percent of his pass attempts. He also added four touchdowns on the ground and 136 rushing yards.

When he performs at his peak, he is an explosive player who has the potential to establish himself as the Colts’ starting quarterback and return them to the postseason every year. Of course, the organization is quite concerned about his health, but fortunately, there is now more positive news.

On the 22nd of May, NFL Live featured an upbeat report by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

“They feel like he’s right where he should be today. They don’t have to rush him. They know they have Joe Flacco in reserve, but he is on track right now to be ready for the start of the season.

“… The Colts know they have a huge talent on their hands. They’re going to be very careful with him knowing his injury history, knowing what he’s coming off of last season but right now I think he’s right where they want him to be.”

So despite the reported shoulder soreness, things are still looking up for Richardson and the Colts, who start the season on Sept. 8 versus the AFC South champion Houston Texans.
