Andrew Luck thinks he’s done playing wide receiver

AP

Colts quarterback Andrew Luck extended his streak of games with at least three touchdown passes to eight on Sunday and he extended another streak to two games as well.

The Colts used Luck as a receiver for someone else’s pass for the second week in a row. Luck couldn’t reel in a pass from tight end Eric Ebron in Week 11, but he did come up with a catch in Sunday’s win over the Dolphins. Luck split out wide with backup quarterback Jacoby Brissett taking the snap on a fourth down and Brissett quickly looked Luck’s way with a pass.

Luck jumped to catch the pass and took an immediate hit from safety Reshad Jones that slammed Luck’s right shoulder into the turf. Luck said his shoulder felt fine and the play resulted in four yards the Colts needed to convert, but he still feels like he’s ready to hang up his receiving gloves.

“I thought I was [retired], now I am,” Luck said, via the Indianapolis Star. “I think I am.”

Brissett was expected to run, but head coach Frank Reich said the Dolphins “played it differently than I thought they were going to play it” by blitzing and Brissett went to the next option. Given Reich’s penchant for working outside the box, Luck may come out of retirement in the future.

  1. They got the first down, but Luck took a big hit on it as well! Could hav easily gone wrong.

    Imagine the criticism Reich would get if Luck went down!

  2. These plays are fun until your star QB re-injures his throwing shoulder. Luck may be a wide-out again but unless he’s wide open with the sidelines right there to protect him no ball should ever go his way again.

    Or any other QB for that matter. Who wants their QB drilled?

  3. I don’t know why Reich was surprised by the defense. Everyone thought Brissett would be running it. Reich has done a good job but he makes some questionable decisions.

    The colts went 11-5 in the first 3 years luck was a full go reich has done zero

  5. Brissett is the mobile QB and Luck is as nimble as a dump truck with glue on it’s tires. Maybe have the mobile QB catch the passes or better yet, stop doing stupid plays like that when your running back or tight end could have gotten 4 yards.

  6. That could have been a very stupid play by Luck.
    He’s no WR that’s for sure, and if his shoulder had gone again it would
    have been the end.

    Luck and Brady can both join the same support group for this.

    I presume from the downvotes there is a group out there that wants to see these guys going out for passes. Must be fans of other teams looking to see an opponent lose their QB.

    Umm, except for this dumb play Reich has designed the offense to protect Luck. Colts are a very young team and started the year with a rusty Luck and many key players on offense missed multiple games. Reich and Ballard are going to do good things.

  9. In their last five games they have beaten the bills, jags, titans and dolphins at home and the raiders on the road…teams with a combined record of 19 and 35…let’s see how they do on the road with teams with a winning record….just keeping it real…most overrated team in the nfl.

  10. All these rules to protect the QBs and Reich tempted disaster. Hasn’t Luck suffered enough under Pagano?

  11. Everyone piles on the Fins for being trash, yet the Colts were fortunate to barely squeak out a win against a team missing their biggest offensive threats.

    I don’t see why everyone is so high on them. They are improved, but all they have done is beat the bad teams. Let’s see what they do against a quality playoff team.
