"I'm hoping to bring a little bit of the intangible

Yes Rico Gathers Jersey , Colts quarterback Andrew Luck threw a football yesterday. Specifically, a聽Wilson TDS 1205, a high school size ball.

But those tosses were just the ones people saw.

Luck said he went out and played catch with coach Frank Reich three weeks ago with “The Duke,” a regulation NFL football. It marked the first time he had done so since last October’s failed attempt to return from shoulder surgery, and he could tell it was different this time.

鈥淚t鈥檚 gone,鈥?Luck said of the pain, via Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star. 鈥淭he pain is gone and it鈥檚 going to stay that way.鈥?/p>

Luck also insisted yesterday that he would be ready for the regular season opener, but after eight months since last throwing Dmitry Kulikov Jersey , and a year and a half from the surgery, it’s reasonable to be skeptical (especially after owner Jim Irsay’s promises a year ago which baited in paying customers).

But Luck said all the rehab and work he’s done this offseason has him in a better place, as he gradually increases his workload.

鈥淎 very different soreness,鈥?Luck said. 鈥淚 had pain last year (that) I wasn鈥檛 being honest to myself about. I was trying to get through pain, per se. There鈥檚 none of that now. . . .

鈥淎bsolutely. The feeling continues to go down, down, down. My arm feels normal. . . . Simply, I feel better. My dips after throwing . . . are much less. My body doesn鈥檛 revolt Ryan Dzingel Jersey , in a sense, to new things. I trust myself. I push myself. We go hard . . . you might not see it, but I go hard. I feel like I improve and I don鈥檛 dip as much. (It鈥檚 not like) 鈥極h my gosh, I can鈥檛 move my arm for the rest of the day.鈥?It鈥檚, 鈥楢ll right, when are we going (to work out) next? Let鈥檚 recover. Let鈥檚 move.鈥?And that鈥檚 different.鈥?/p>

And that’s what the Colts season is riding on.

Kirk Herbstreit will take Jon Gruden's place on ESPN's coverage of the NFL draft.

ESPN announced Thursday that Herbstreit will be part the opening night coverage of the first round in prime time on April 26 at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Herbstreit will be joined by host Trey Wingo, draft analyst Mel Kiper and NFL analyst Louis Riddick.

Rounds two and three are April 27 Authentic Oliver Bjorkstrand Jersey , and rounds four through seven are April 28.

Herbstreit is the lead analyst for ESPN's "Saturday Night College Football" and the "College GameDay" pregame show.

Gruden left his job as analyst on ESPN's "Monday Night Football" in January to return to coaching as head coach of the Oakland Raiders. Gruden joined ESPN in 2009 and has been part of draft coverage since 2010.

Herbstreit said he was approached by Lee Fitting, ESPN vice president, college sports, about being part of draft night coverage.

"After we talked about my role, I was pumped up," Herbstreit told AP. "I'm going to stay in my lane and let Mel and Louis and Trey kind of say, 'Hey, the Broncos really need to do this.' I'll kind of be more of breaking down some of the prospects from a college football perspective. Once they told me I was doing that and not projecting ... I'm not into that at all."

Herbstreit has covered most of the players expected to be drafted in the first round Womens Mike Evans Jersey , especially top quarterback prospects such as Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield, UCLA's Josh Rosen and Southern California's Sam Darnold.

"I'm hoping to bring a little bit of the intangibles and what makes this particular guy tick," he said.

Herbstreit has been part of "GameDay" since 1996. The show has grown into a three-hour marathon, often unscripted. The draft show is even more unpredictable, but Herbstreit said his time on "GameDay" should help on draft night.

"As long as you do your homework, when you go on the set the ball can go anywhere and you're ready to go," he said.
