Should be ready for OTAs

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-03-25

Coach Shane Steichen noted Monday that Richardson (right shoulder) "should be" good to go" for the Colts' OTAs, which take place in May and early June, JJ Stankevitz of the team's official site reports.

"I like where he's at," Steichen said of Richardson, who is bouncing back from surgery that he underwent on his throwing shoulder in October. "He's progressing really, really well. He's just getting better and better." Per James Boyd of The Athletic, Richardson began throwing again last month and considering that, the 2023 first-rounder figures to be eased back into his on-field participation, at least initially. In any case, assuming no setbacks, Richardson is set to reclaim his role as the Colts' starter this coming season, with veteran signal-caller Joe Flacco now on board to work as the team's top backup.

Resumes throwing

Richardson (shoulder) has resumed throwing as part of his rehab from right shoulder surgery, per a video posted to his agent Deiric Jackson's account.

Richardson is recovering from season-ending surgery undergone Oct. 21, to address a Grade 3 AC Joint sprain suffered Week 5. He also missed time as a rookie due to a concussion suffered Week 2, but it now looks like the 2023 No. 4 overall pick is trending to be cleared well ahead of training camp. Despite only appearing in four games as a rookie, Richardson managed to display the outlandish potential of his unique size and speed profile. With a full offseason to further his development as a signal-caller, Richardson's fantasy upside for 2024 should make him one of the hottest names at the quarterback position.

Could resume throwing soon

Richardson (shoulder) is ahead of schedule in his rehab and hopes to resume throwing soon,'s Stephen Holder reports.

The article doesn't specify if his return to throwing is a matter of weeks or months, but either way the 2023 fourth overall pick should be healthy long before training camp. He suffered a concussion Week 2 and a Grade 3 AC Joint sprain Week 5, with the latter leading to season-ending surgery Oct. 21. Richardson said he struggled to deal with the reality of a lost season for a few weeks, before he eventually "came around and understood [his] purpose" within the Colts organization. He then took part in the game-planning process, meetings and film study, settling for a slow introduction to the NFL after originally being tabbed as a 21-year-old Week 1 starter. Richardson's unmatched combination of size and speed -- along with the mostly impressive 2023 cameo -- should ensure he's a hot commodity for 2024 fantasy and a top-100 pick in most leagues.

Undergoes surgery

Richardson (shoulder) underwent successful surgery to address a Grade 3 AC joint sprain in his right shoulder Tuesday, according to Colts owner Jim Irsay.

The Colts placed Richardson on injured reserve Oct. 11 after he sustained the injury in Week 5. His recovery timeline is uncertain at this time, but the surgery was considered season-ending. As a result, Gardner Minshew will continue serving as the team's starting signal-caller, and Sam Ehlinger will back him up. Richardson is now set to focus on his rehab in order to ensure a healthy start to the 2024 season.

Done for season

Richardson will undergo season-ending shoulder surgery.

Richardson landed on IR after sustaining an AC joint injury in his right (throwing) shoulder during the Colts' Week 5 win over the Titans, and now it has been confirmed that the No. 4 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft will miss the remainder of the season. With Richardson unavailable moving forward, Gardner Minshew will continue as the team's starting signal-caller, backed up by Sam Ehlinger.

Season likely done

Colts owner Jim Irsay indicated Monday that Richardson's (shoulder) season is "probably" over, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

The expectation last week was that Richardson would be sidelined 4-to-8 weeks due to his Grade 3 right AC joint sprain. However, there is now speculation the first-round pick could need season-ending surgery to address the issue, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Given Irsay's comments, it would seem Indy is in the camp of erring on the side of caution with its prized rookie in order for him to fully recover without any setbacks. Gardner Minshew will be in line to direct the offense for the rest of the season, should Richardson's season indeed be over.

Season-ending surgery a possibility

The Colts are 'strongly' considering the possibility of Richardson (shoulder) undergoing season-ending surgery to address his right AC joint injury, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Indianapolis is reportedly trying to decide whether season-ending surgery is the best option for guaranteeing Richardson is able to recover fully without setbacks, though such a procedure would end his rookie campaign prematurely after just four appearances. Richardson has already sought at least four specialist opinions on his injury at this time, though his MRI did reveal the labrum in his right shoulder is not torn. The Colts could feel confident turning to Gardner Minshew to keep things steady on offense for the rest of the 2023 campaign if necessary, but going into Year 2 with only four games of tape on Richardson, who represents the franchise's future, could be problematic.

Expected to miss 4-to-8 weeks

Richardson (shoulder), who was officially placed on injured reserve Wednesday, is expected to miss four-to-eight weeks and may require surgery, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The Colts could be without Richardson until as late as early December, depending on whether the rookie first-round pick ultimately requires surgery to address his right AC joint injury, and the pace of his rehab. The team at least has a backup in the form of Gardner Minshew capable of stabilizing the offense for an extended period, but the longer the stretch of his rookie campaign Richardson is forced to spend on IR, the more his development could be impacted. The earliest possible date Richardson can return will be Week 10 against the Patriots, after which Indianapolis will benefit from a bye.

Lands on IR

The Colts have officially placed Richardson (shoulder) on injured reserve.

With the move, Richardson will miss at least the next four games, which means that the soonest that he can return to action is Week 10 against the Patriots. In the meantime, Gardner Minshew is slated to start at QB for the Colts.
