I don't think this is as big of a deal as tomorrow.  If he can throw on consecutive days, without pain, then he will be close IMHO.  Still nice to see him finally throwing a football though.

Thrilled to be wrong on this. Let's see if he throws all 3 days or if he's still on an every other day routine.

He said he hasn't thrown The Duke. Has he been throwing the college ball all this time?

 

This is great news.  His projection to be at training camp with no governor (restrictions) seems on pace now.  He appears to be on a throwing program of sorts, with a distance limit and pitch count. Question is, how long has he been on it, how far along is he, and how long before he's completely cleared for full live 11 on 11 drills or scrimmage work? We'll know more at training camp.  As long as he doesn't encounter any more serious problems (I'm sure he'll have minor things to work through/overcome) until then, It looks really good for the Colts right now.  Quite pleased and my cautiously optimistic outlook has changed to just optimistic now.

Cautiously optimistic, let's see how he feels by Friday morning.

 

Definitely great news though!

He's supposed to speak with the media after practice, so hopefully that'll provide some clarity on his timeline moving forward.

Might be a little early for long stretches of consecutive days.  From what he did (reported) he performed at a phase I level of an interval throwing program.  Weight training is supposed to be done on throwing days as well, and there is typically a day off between each throwing session; for rest and flexibility.

 

"The unit has a grueling campaign that inches closer daily. I shall be ready."

 

So if he doesn't throw in consecutive days for the time being, don't everyone freak out please.

 

{EDIT:} We also do not know all that goes on behind those closed doors. Hopefully it is even better news than they shared with us today.

For someone who is more familiar with the type of rehab he was doing...is this really that much different?

College ball is wider around the middle. And it's not The Duke, so, a technicality. 

 

Edit: I just fact checked this, I guess there is no size difference. I always felt the NCAA ball is wider than the NFL ball, but it seems they're both supposed to be 7 inches. 

Except for Brady's which are slightly smaller.

Like I said previously I think I will just stick with what Ballard and Reich have been telling us this whole offseason.

 

Glad we don't have to depend on anybodies "theory" now!

True, but I expect him to be vague.  However, his actions (limited amount of soft toss) and tweet already hinted IMHO-

 

"The unit has a grueling campaign that inches closer daily."

 

Stay on pace Andrew...

I suppose the NFL balls would appear to be smaller if you only watched Patriot games...            :)

The ball he threw is actually a high school football-

    • If there is a elite young WR in FA I would definitely go that route. Plus a draft pick that would be big. 
    • The Eagles are super banged up! Top 2 WR out now their starting RB. Going be hard for them to score I think.
    • Put me in the camp calling for a free agent WR as well as one taken high in the draft. We all know that it takes a couple of years to hit your stride as a pro WR. I don’t think the team can wait for that. The Colts need to improve at this position immediately, especially with TY showing the inevitable signs of aging, i.e. he’s dinged up constantly. I’m not sure what will be out there next year FA-wise, but I know this: they can’t fix this problem with draft picks alone. 
    • https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/american-football/50448708   Looks like he's not given up on getting a gig in then NFL, but acting like this is getting to endear him to organisations. I can understand that he might not agree with the terms of the workout, but you've got to handle it more professionally than this.    Shame, I really do think he has talent. 
    • Most of us HATE injustice. We saw it with the OJ situation: part of the country wanted justice for all of the times police overstepped their boundaries and innocent people got arrested or convicted. The other part of our population wanted a murderer convicted for killing two people. Both sides wanted justice.         Same is true for police brutality and social injustice. To me, these are individual acts done by individuals and protests against the flag are misguided. It’s saying this country stands for injustice and inequality and nothing can be further from the truth.          We live in a country that provides the opportunity for all people to do well: Athletes, Doctors, Businessmen, Pastors, Actors and Musicians have reaped the benefits of living in this great country.         I have no problem with anyone protesting individual acts of racism or injustice. But to protest the flag is misguided.
