Steve Young 'super anxious about Andrew Luck and his future'

Steve Young 'super anxious about Andrew Luck and his future'

The Colts made the announcement Thursday afternoon, ruling their franchise quarterback out for the season.

The Colts announced Thursday that Luck will be placed on injured reserve while he continues to rehabilitate from shoulder surgery.

Luck had shoulder surgery to fix an injury that he originally suffered in 2015 and that continued to bother him through the 2016 season, prompting offseason surgery.

He's an unflappable sort, so I'm not sure Brissett ever felt Luck looming behind him, but the keys to the 2017 Colts offense now lives with Brissett's right hand.

During Sony's press conference, we got a chance to look at God of War's combat mechanics with a new gameplay trailer. During the pre-show for the conference, Sony's PR team announced Spelunky 2 would be coming to PS4 .

For Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, the injury guarantees in his 2016 contract extension matter, since there's now no guarantee he'll ever play again. He stated that he is not getting feedback that the injury could be something that ends Luck's career. The Colts are 2-6 with the toughest part of their schedule still awaiting them.

Jacoby Brissett will remain Indy's starting quarterback in Luck's absence.

"Andrew's exhausted every avenue to try to get ready and get back and play, and that was our hope, also", Ballard told the Colts' Bob Lamey.

Luck originally injured his shoulder in September 2015 and at the time, the injury was so painful that he grimaced when he received a friendly tap from his then backup quarterback, Matt Hasselbeck.

Patriots Hold Off Chargers 21-13 for 4th Straight Win
Coming into the game, New England had scored on 53.33 percent of their red zone visits in 2017, only 16th-best in the league. On LA's ensuing possession, quarterback Philip Rivers found Travis Benjamin in the end zone for a touchdown.

Luck thought in April he would be ready to go, and I can not see him publically stating that just to help the organization from a PR standpoint. Five months after the injury - or 20 weeks later - Luck said he still wasn't quite healed. That's fair because Ballard was always measured in his Luck comments and things can change when the recovery timetable is thrown off-track after injured players suffer setbacks in rehabilitation.

I believe Ballard when he says no doctors have called Luck's issue career-ending.

Inside the locker room, Luck's teammates understand why he won't be back. That ended when Irsay fired Grigson following last season, a second straight 8-8 season for the Colts, and hired Chris Ballard as GM. "He's a difference-maker. He's one of the best quarterbacks in the league, so he's frustrated".
