Colts’ Anthony Richardson suggests he begins throwing soon

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Anthony Richardson is months removed from the season-ending shoulder surgery he underwent during October, and it appears he’s closing in on beginning a throwing program.

Richardson told the media following the end of the season in January that he expects to begin throwing at some point during the month of February. The Instagram story he posted Sunday suggests that time is coming soon.

Richardson underwent surgery on Oct. 24 to repair a Grade 3 AC joint sprain in his throwing shoulder. He could have tried to simply rehab it with a slight chance of returning late in the season, but the long-term outlook suggested surgery to correct any issues he was dealing with.

The Colts are excited about Richardson’s future and what he can bring to the table as a playmaker and a leader. His dual-threat abilities were put well on display despite his short rookie season.

Beginning a throwing program in February may put Richardson on track to participate in the spring workouts, which begin for the Colts in the middle of April. However, it remains to be seen what the Colts have planned for his activities during the spring.

We’ll see what happens over the course of the next month or so, but it appears Richardson will begin throwing soon.
