Indianapolis Colts quarterback Anthony Richardson is expected to be ready to participate in the spring workouts when they begin during mid-April.

Speaking to the media at the league’s annual owners meeting Monday, head coach Shane Steichen provided a positive update as it pertains to Richardson’s progress.

“I think he’ll be good to go for spring practice,” Steichen said Monday via IndyStar. “Obviously, we’ve got to limit it and monitor it and don’t go overboard, but I couldn’t be more excited to get him back going again.”

Richardson has been working through a throwing program for the better part of the last 1.5 months. He underwent season-ending shoulder surgery in October following a Grade 3 AC joint sprain in his throwing shoulder.

The ceiling of the Colts in 2024 largely orbits what kind of player they get in Richardson. He showed a lot of promise during the early part of his rookie season both as a runner and a passer.

What Richardson brings in terms of upside is something the Colts are rallying behind. Though they haven’t made many outside additions to the roster, Richardson’s return can bring an immediate boost if he stays healthy.

From what Steichen saw during the limited sample size in 2023, the excitement is only going to build as the months pass.

“He made some plays that I’ve never seen guys make,” Steichen said. “To get him back going in training camp and to get him through a full season, I couldn’t be more excited about that.”

The Colts can begin Phase 1 of the offseason workout program on April 15 and even though the on-field work won’t arrive until Phase 2.
