According to NFL.com, Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck said he suffered a snowboarding injury in the off-season following the 2015 season. He said he’s not snowboarding anymore.

He extensively expressed himself to NFL.com about the labrum injury that cost him the entire 2017 season. In addition, he had to undergo multiple surgeries to correct the problem in his shoulder.

“I don’t snowboard anymore,” he said. “And this was after the initial injury. I went back, rehabbed it with the Colts. I’ve had a bunch of AC sprains, both left and right shoulder, and resolved that issue. But the labrum has been my issue, was my issue, what I worked through, what I got surgery on.”

He said he was involved in an accident in Colorado in the Winter of 2016. The injury caused a sprained AC join in his throwing shoulder, according to NFL.com.

Prior to his acknowledgement, this was a secret injury until this week when he opened up about it with NFL.com. While the media did not know about this news, Luck does not believe the AC sprain affected his torn labrum, NFL.com reports.

“I’ve seen more doctors than I can count on two hands over the past two or three years,” he said. “And the consensus — unanimous — is that the AC is not an issue, nor did it have an effect. The labrum is an issue.”

Luck will be making his return to the field on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Colts have a home game at Lucas Oil Stadium.

The 28-year-old last played in 2016 when he started 15 games and went 8-7 as a starter. He went 346 of 545 for 4,240 passing yards with 31 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.

The last game he played in was on January 1st, 2017 when he went 24 of 40 for 321 passing yards. He also had two touchdowns and an interceptions in the Colts 24-20 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars at Lucas Oil Stadium.

“It made me realize I love football and I love playing it,” Luck said. “I love my teammates. It stinks when you can’t do something. I do think I’ve gained a different appreciation. I’m much happier playing it than I was. … I was very emotional before the first preseason game. I’ll try to keep it in check, but I’ve also learned it’s important to just let things go and let it happen. I know I’ll be excited. I know that.”
