Did Colts Lie To Fan Base Regarding Andrew Luck?

Andrew Luck

That hope was crushed Thursday when the Colts announced they would put him away for the remainder of the season.

Luck, who missed the 2017 offseason workout program, training camp, preseason and the first few weeks of the regular season, was able to return to practice, albeit in a very limited role, on October 4 and 6, when he went through individual drills and threw some routes to receivers against air.

General manager Chris Ballard said the consensus from the doctors Luck saw was to continue his rehab, and not take the field this season.

Although the Colts are optimistic about Luck's eventual return to the field, many fans are frustrated.

He won't play for the entire year now. Ex-Colts linebacker D'Qwell Jackson even suggested that Luck's injury could be career-ending. They're now 2-6.

When the Indianapolis Colts traded for Jacoby Brissett before the 2017 regular season, it appears they acquired their quarterback for the entirety of the year.

"I wish I was better and 100 percent this season, but that's not the case", Luck said via a press release.


Luck lamented the end result of what is now a lost season for him.

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.

Rarely does the injury guarantee ever really matter, especially as it relates to franchise quarterbacks. Even when Griffin's career began to unravel, there was little thought that Luck's would follow.

The Colts in the meantime have leaned on backup Jacoby Brissett, who hasn't been very bad.

Many conspiracy theorists suspected from the beginning Luck would not take a snap in 2017, but Ballard insisted the situation remained fluid until last week.

Inside the locker room, Luck's teammates understand why he won't be back. The doctors have told the Colts to have patience with the rehab process, he said. Grigson was criticized for failing to assemble a better offensive line to safeguard the franchise quarterback.
