Andrew Luck could quite possibly be the most unlucky first overall pick ever. You can’t quite call him a bust though. When he is on the field and healthy, he is one of the best in the league. His injury history is a major concern for the fans and team alike moving forward.
Indianapolis Colts fans have to get a chill down their spine hearing team Owner Jim Irsay say that Luck is dealing with “a small little bone”. What that means is quite a good question. No one really knows yet. Given the fact that the team originally stated that he was dealing with a mild calf strain, this could be an issue.
The Colts also aren’t too good at actually understanding Andrew Luck and his injuries. He missed the entire 2017 season while recovering from a “minor shoulder surgery”. Back then they also said he would be ready to go for the season opener. He ended up missing the entire season.
Call this good news if you believe them this time but both Luck and the Colts have stated that he will be ready to play by the season opener a little less than a month from now against the Phillip Rivers and the Los Angeles Chargers.
Andrew Luck is the core of this team and they need him to win. They are 53-33 with him on the field. In games he has missed for any reason, they are 10-16. He is currently in third place on the all time Colts passing yards list with 23,671. He is only behind Johnny Unitas and the legendary Peyton Manning.
If Luck can’t play again it will be a fight throughout the pre-season for the starting job between Jacoby Brissett and Chad Kelly. They also have Phillip Walker on the roster at QB. In the pre-season week 1 24-16 loss to the Buffalo Bills, Chad Kelly shined going 13 for 19 with 121 yards. He also ran the ball four times for 53 yards and a touchdown. Brissett only threw five passes.
