Iv e heard this NCF.....There arent others.
Greg Cook was 50 years ago..right?. Medicine and surgery have somewhat been updated since then and and, no disrespect, but he was never 'Andrew Luck' good....His career may not have ended because of the injury.
His level of play couldn't afford to diminish
Chad Pennington was never very good...and, I dont think his career ended because of the surgery.
My point is that, even with a diminished throwing strength, Andrew can still be a great player.
No one's career has ever ended SOLELY (which is the key word I used') do to shoulder surgery.
I've heard more than ne of the NFL 'TV doctors say that and there are no examples of it in the present day.
Gayle Sayers career ended with an injury (torn ACL) that would have been one off-season re-hab now
No injured player is 'out of the woods' until he gets back on the field if he still feels pain but NFL QBs play with some shoulder pain. most all of them.
I'm just not as worried as you are. We just saw a Colts QB with 1/4 of his original arm strength set all-time NFL records after multiple neck surgeries and 'career-ending' nerve damage.
What even happened to that guy?
