Just two weeks after resuming practice, Indianapolis Colts star quarterback Andrew Luck has been shut down by the team due to pain in his surgically repaired right shoulder, general manager Chris Ballard announced Wednesday.

"The doctors and the trainers have decided to give him a cortisone shot to kind of take away some of that inflammation that's been happening," Ballard said Wednesday, according to ESPN. "He'll continue to rehab. We're just going to shut down the throwing right now to get this thing calmed back down."

Luck, 28, who had undergone surgery in January to repair his injured shoulder, completed just two days of practice this week. He complained of soreness, which will keep him from practice for the rest of the week and likely longer.

Ballard said that Luck made progress this week before aggravating his shoulder.

"In terms of rehab, it's going well," Ballard said on team's official website. "You've seen him throw, I've watched every session of him throwing and it's been going really well. His velocity is good, his motion is good, all that is coming along at a good rate. It's the soreness right now that we're dealing with and that we have to get through."

Ballard refused to provide a timetable for Luck’s recovery. The Colts (2-4) have 10 games remaining until the end of the season.

"Understand this: Every player is different," Ballard said. "Every rehab is different. Every surgery is different. That's why we never put a timeline on this. Every guy is different. The good news is, Andrew is very in-tuned with his body and he's being honest about what's going on. That's what we want and what we need."

This setback is nothing new to Luck, who has been hampered by his injured shoulder for two-plus years. He first injured the shoulder during Week 3 of the 2015 season, then re-injured it in Week 2 of the 2016 season. He sat out for offseason training camps and preseason exhibitions.

"It's natural it's going to be some pain and soreness when you're rehabbing an injury," Ballard added. "It's kind of been coming along the whole time. It's one thing that hasn't gone away. We're going to try to shut him and calm it down right now."

The team will likely rest their star quarterback for the remainder of the season until he’s fully healed. He is added to list of stars who have all had their seasons cut short by injury including Green Bay Packers Aaron Rodgers, New York Giants Odell Beckham Jr. and Houston Texans J.J. Watt.
