Luck returned to practice in October for the first time since having surgery on a torn labrum 10 months ago.

The usual recovery time for that sort of surgery "ranges from three to six months" according to this report, which would still have him back on the field for the beginning of the 2018 season. He was placed on the injured reserve list on November 3, ending his season.
Overall, this rehab stint in Europe has been encouraging for Luck's recovery, but there are still many steps left to accomplish before he's fully recovered.
Luck ultimately would have the final say on whether he would have surgery if the pain returns.
