Colts To Place Andrew Luck On Injured Reserve

Heads to IR Colts' Andrew Luck out for season after being placed on IR

The Colts announced that Andrew Luck was placed on Injured Reserve and Twitter blamed the team for his setbacks.

The Indianapolis Colts have taken all the mystery out of the Andrew Luck saga, placing him on injured reserve and ending his 2017 season before it began, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Luck had surgery on a nagging shoulder issue in January, and was able to return to practice in early October. 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.

Not having Luck play this season should speed up the rebuilding process for the Colts because he won't be back to try to rescue them and in turn hurt their draft positioning. They're now 2-6. Back-up QB Jacoby Brissett has been starting since Week Two and is expected to do so for the remainder of the year.

Luck said he's "very optimistic" about his future despite being unable to recover in time for the 2017 season. 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.

Twitter reacts to Kelvin Benjamin being traded to the Buffalo Bills
Beane acknowledged that Buffalo's success played a role in the trade, stating, "If you start 0-7, I'm not sure you trade a pick". He had a spectacular rookie season in which he surpassed the 1,000-yard mark, and averaged over 13 yards a reception.

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

Indianapolis stated there would be no extra surgery for Luck, but just rest and rehab. The Colts also would have a potential trade chip - Luck, Brissett or the new quarterback - that might pay dividends down the road no matter how things unfold. That ended when Irsay fired Grigson following last season, a second straight 8-8 season for the Colts, and hired Chris Ballard as GM.

Ballard told reporters he has received no indication that Luck's problems are career-threatening.

The 2012 quarterback class that included Luck, Robert Griffin III, Ryan Tannehill and Russell Wilson once seemed destined for all-time greatness. "He's a difference-maker. He's one of the best quarterbacks in the league, so he's frustrated".
