INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Andrew Luck has stopped throwing passes for now, and it's not yet clear when he'll resume.

On Wednesday, Indianapolis Colts general manager Chris Ballard said the team has instructed the star quarterback to take a break from throwing after developing soreness in his surgically repaired throwing shoulder.

"The doctors and the trainers have decided - they've given him a cortisone shot to kind of take away some of that inflammation that's been happening," Ballard said. "In terms of the rehab, it's been going well."

The cornerback practiced with the team on Wednesday for the first time since being suspended indefinitely a week ago after leaving the team headquarters before practice. The Giants reinstated the 10-year veteran Tuesday after he spoke with McAdoo.

LB Ray, TE Butt practice for Broncos
