Andrew Luck out again this week

Without Andrew Luck, the Colts looked like the worst team in the NFL on Sunday. Things may not get better any time soon.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano confirmed today that Luck has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals.

That’s no surprise, as reports have indicated that Luck is not particularly close to returning from shoulder surgery. The Colts haven’t put a date on Luck’s return, but it may still be a while.

Of course, if the Colts keep looking as bad as they looked on Sunday in Los Angeles, it might be time to question whether Luck should return at all this year. If the team isn’t going anywhere anyway, is it worth risking Luck in meaningless games, when all winning will do is give the Colts a worse draft position?

Those are the questions the Colts will face down the road. Today the only question is whether Luck can go this week. And the answer is no.

    If they win the battle for 0-16 with the Jets, just imagine the boatload of draft picks they could get for that top pick. They’d be instant contenders.

    Sadly, didn’t the Colts already do that ‘suck for Luck’ thing a couple years back and tank their season?

    Seems they aren’t much better off

  2. I’m starting to prepare myself for Luck missing the entire season. Remember Manning’s last season in Indy? First it was a pre-season game. Then two. Then three. Then it was maybe he won’t be ready for week 1. Then 2. Then 3. He never played another down for the Colts.

  3. just karma from the football gods when they “sucked for luck.” How’d that work out?LOL…Always take the high road, always give your best effort. At least you can look yourself in the mirror and NOT tempt the gods…..

    Well, they were better off for a couple of seasons, but Grigson apparently didn’t know that he also had to build a team around Luck.

  5. Kaepernick could win 5 or 6 games with this team. Tolzien will go 0-16 if Luck doesn’t come back this year. Time for the Colts to make the move purely for football reasons.

  6. Bring back NBC’s “Unsolved Mysteries” and have “The
    Peculiar Case of Andrew Luck” as the season premiere.

  7. If he doesn’t play this year he should forfeit his salary. They never should have offered him that contract to begin with, way over rated and now a bench warmer. Wasted money and cap space. And WHY was he on the sidelines in LA? If it isn’t a home game I don’t want to see him on the sidelines.

  8. But Tolzien was still the better option than Kaepernick, right. Clearly they care more about a bunch of loudmouth’s opinions on Kaepernick than winning football games. Must suck to be a Colts fan. But hey, at least they can sleep well knowing Tolzien stands for the Anthem like Kaepernick was going to do this season.

  9. I couldn’t figure out how Carson “Pick Six” Palmer was guaranteeing the Cardinal’s would win next week. Then I saw the schedule and saw they are playing the Colts. Guy is likely right for once.

  10. “If the team isn’t going anywhere anyway, is it worth risking Luck in meaningless games, when all winning will do is give the Colts a worse draft position?’

    In other words, you think the Colts should commit consumer fraud by intentionally not putting the best possible product on the field and making every effort to win every game just so they can get a better draft choice next year.

    Got it. SMH

    I wouldn’t lay any money on it.

    Aye, but there’s no real mystery – Luck admitted in April this year he’s been constantly battling and habbing the shoulder since injuring it in wk3 of Sept 2015, but only 5 of the following 29 weeks’ injury reports listed it. Pagano, when specifically asked about it in Sept 2016 said that “Andrew was fine”. A similar story of deception could be listed about his ribs. So the only mystery is why Integrity Goodell hasn’t penalized the Colts, massively, both in 2015 and again in 2016, for lying on at least 24 Injury Reports.

    I agree that they could probably win a few more games with Kaepernick. But just a few. And at this point, would it even be worth it? They are so putrid, they might as well play for the top draft pick. This team has crashed and burned.

  14. Since they havent been able to improve the roster really outside of him since his draft year, might as well compete with the Jets for that top pick and see if they can go foward from there…
