Luck announces retirement following Colts loss to Bears

Jacoby Brissett Named Colts Starter for Now, Not Playing Saturday

Star quarterback Andrew Luck has told the Indianapolis Colts he is retiring from the National Football League, according to a report by ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Jacoby Brissett will become the Colts' starting quarterback this season.

He also missed parts of the 2015 and 2016 seasons and the entire 2017 campaign with a recurring shoulder injury that required one surgery and additional treatment in Europe.

"It's taken my joy of this game away", said the American. Honestly, it's the hardest decision of my life. "I felt stuck in it, and the only way I see out is to no longer play football".

However, there has been an outpouring of support from fans and fellow professionals following his announcement.

Andrew Luck #12 of the Indianapolis Colts runs with the ball against the Tennessee Titans during the fourth quarter at Nissan Stadium on December 30, 2018 in Nashville, Tennessee.

"I am going to retire", Luck said.

Luck has been dealing with a lower leg injury throughout training camp and preseason, and he has not played in the preseason.

"I haven't been able to live the life I want to live", Luck said.

Luck's retirement comes at a tough time for the Colts.

He sat out Saturday night's preseason game against the Bears as a precautionary move, knowing he would start in the regular-season opener if Luck were not recovered from his ankle injury.

The scene was caused mostly by Colts fans being very bad, as one of the best players in franchise history was about to cite a four-year "pain cycle" for quitting the game.

Luck appeared to return to form in 2016, throwing for 4,240 yards and 31 touchdowns and playing in 15 of 16 games. He ranks third all-time in franchise history in completions, passing attempts, passing yards and touchdowns, and is second in completion percentage (60.8) and quarterback rating (89.5).
