Indianapolis Colts quarterback Anthony Richardson recently expressed his excitement and gratitude for the upcoming opportunity to resume throwing the football, despite still undergoing rehabilitation for a season-ending shoulder injury.
According to a post on social media, Richardson received positive feedback from doctors following his successful shoulder surgery on October 24, 2023, indicating that he would be cleared to throw again approximately sixteen weeks post-surgery.
Based on this timeline, Richardson is expected to be cleared for throwing on Tuesday, February 13th, 2024.
However, it’s important to note that recovery periods can vary, and this estimate serves as a rough guideline. Nonetheless, if his rehabilitation progresses smoothly without any setbacks, Richardson should be close to resuming football-related activities.
Recently spotted at the Auburn-Florida men’s basketball game, Richardson has returned to his hometown of Gainesville, Florida, unofficially kicking off his offseason. Given his previous offseason collaboration with Colts quarterback Gardner Minshew in Florida around mid-March last year, it wouldn’t be surprising if Richardson continues his rehabilitation and training regimen in the Sunshine State.
With Anthony Richardson potentially gearing up for his sophomore season alongside head coach Shane Steichen and star running back Jonathan Taylor, there’s anticipation for a breakout year ahead for the talented Colts quarterback, provided he maintains his health and continues to progress in his recovery.
