Indianapolis Colts officially shut down Andrew Luck for season

Posted November 04, 2017

Andrew Luck #12 of the Indianapolis Colts watches from the sidelines against the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field on October 1, 2017 in Seattle, Washington.

The Colts have a record of 2-6 in their lost season, doomed when Luck did not return as quickly or as successfully from shoulder surgery as the team's decision-makers seemed to anticipate. As such, Luck will not resume his throwing program until both Luck and the doctors are satisfied with the physical state of his shoulder and previous soreness subsides.

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. With Andrew Luck? In a division where you play 10 games in flawless weather every year? "Career-ending would be to put him out there before he's ready". They're now 2-6.

Ballard said on Monday, in an appearance on 1070 The Fan's Colts Roundtable Live, that the team and Luck "wanted to start getting some answers" after the cortisone shots didn't work as intended; the quarterback had, in turn, "gone to a couple other doctors just to get some opinions to see where we're at".

Things We Learned From Sony's Paris Games Week Livestream
It's been years since we've seen a God of War release for PlayStation , but this new trailer isn't making the wait any easier. During Sony's Paris Games Week Media Showcase, it was revealed that Monster Hunter World would get a PS4 beta in December.

White House Distances Itself from Papadopoulos
CNN has fact-checked the Trump administration in the past on its chyron. "It was a volunteer position". Q But the George Papadopoulos agreement is about the campaign.

"I wish I was better and 100 percent this season, but that's not the case", Luck told the team's website, Colts.com. While there was never a real chance the Colts would be a playoff team this season, some fans believed that Luck might ride into Lucas Oil Stadium on a hero's white steed to lead them to the promised land.

Instead, Colts fans will have to wait until hopefully 2018 to see Luck return to the field-having not played in an National Football League game since last January, with obviously this latest disappointing injury development.

Still, we don't have the information to make a call on whether the Colts need to proceed as if they have a future question about who'll be their starting quarterback. He missed one game in 2016 due to a concussion.

Injuries have derailed what was a positive start to Luck's career. The job is his to roll with, knowing Luck isn't walking back into the huddle until next season. Brissett has also added 32 rushes for 135 yards and three touchdowns to his totals. Five months after the injury - or 20 weeks later - Luck said he still wasn't quite healed. Grigson was criticized for failing to assemble a better offensive line to safeguard the franchise quarterback. Luck, too, is culpable for continuing to play through a 2015 injury he should have gotten fixed shortly after it happened, rather than playing through pain until surgery became a necessity.
