Andrew Luck Won't Play This Season- What Now?

Andrew Luck

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck will miss the remainder of the 2017 season, the team announced Thursday.

Colts general manager Chris Ballard said Thursday the team has not heard from any doctor that Luck's shoulder situation is career ending.

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.

So with the Colts struggling, their playoff hopes fading fast and Luck apparently not ready to play, Indianapolis decided to make the smart, cautious move - even if it wasn't Luck's preference. "Career-ending would be to put him out there before he's ready".

Smith said he and other customers had trouble getting the door to open as they tried to get out of the store. Thornton is city of about 120,000 people roughly 10 miles (16 km) northeast of Denver.

Indianapolis is now in last place in the AFC South with a record of 2-6. Although Jacoby Brissett is not as prominent as a quarterback as Luck is, the teams biggest issue remains the offensive line.

"I wish I was better and 100 percent this season, but that's not the case", Luck told Colts.com. But the finality of it provided the sobering reminder that when it comes to what will transpire with their franchise quarterback, the Colts may be - pardon the pun - out of luck.

Translation: The Colts are facing the possibility of Luck never playing again at a high level and being on the hook for $87 million in salary guaranteed against injury.

"He was frustrated. He's a competitive guy, he knows the impact he has on a Sunday", Ballard said.

For now, the only real detail we have about the 2018 Wrangler models are three images that Jeep has published. The official unveiling is less than a month away - on November 29, at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show.

Ballard dismissed any notion that Luck's career is in jeopardy, however. Then he practiced two more times before he was shut down and given a cortisone shot to see if the soreness would subside.

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.

Inside the locker room, Luck's teammates understand why he won't be back.

Ballard said, "The consensus from all the doctors is to continue rehab, to be patient and to continue rehab".

As Iraq's military crumbled in the face of Islamic State group advances in 2014, Kurdish forces took control of Kirkuk. The leader of Iraq's semi-autonomous Kurdistan region is stepping down after a failed push for independence.

As for Luck, he said that he'll come out of all this as a better quarterback.
