Frank Gore has no doubt that Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck will be able to play at a high level when he returns from a shoulder injury. 

Per Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star, Gore didn't mince words when asked about Luck (warning: contains sensitive language):

Frank Gore was amazingly blunt today about Andrew Luck: "He’ll be back. He tough. He love the game. He’ll be fine." "Shit, that quarterback tough. When he get healthy, shit, that’s a tough motherf-----."

Colts owner Jim Irsay announced in January that Luck underwent shoulder surgery to correct an issue that had been lingering since 2015. 

After missing all four preseason games and not practicing until October, Luck's season officially came to an end on Nov. 2 when the Colts placed him on injured reserve. The 28-year-old went to Europe for additional treatment on his ailing shoulder to ensure he would be ready for the 2018 season. 

Gore has been Luck's teammate since 2015, when the Colts signed him to a three-year contract. The veteran running back is scheduled to become a free agent after the 2017 season. 

The Colts are 3-12 heading into Sunday's regular-season finale against the Houston Texans at Lucas Oil Stadium.
