Re­port: Colts’ Luck to re­tire

Baltimore Sun Sunday - - SCOREBOARD -

An­drew Luck has told the Colts that he’s re­tir­ing from the NFL, ESPN re­ported late Satur­day.

A source said Luck, 29, will make the an­nounce­ment at a press con­fer­ence on Sun­day.

Se­lected first over­all in the 2012 draft from Stan­ford, Luck passed for at least 4,000 yards in four of his six NFL sea­sons. He also threw 171 TDs and 83 INTs.

Luck led the NFL with 40 TD passes in 2015, but has been in­jury prone in re­cent years. He missed the 2017 sea­son af­ter shoul­der surgery.

Mur­ray sharp in loss: Kyler Mur­ray showed why he was taken first over­all in last spring’s draft, but the Car­di­nals couldn’t come away with a win.

Mur­ray com­pleted 14 of 21 passes for 137 yards in his fi­nal ac­tion of the pre­sea­son, a 20-9 loss to the Vik­ings on Satur­day. The reign­ing Heis­man Tro­phy win­ner played in five se­ries against a de­fense that was al­most at full strength.

Three of Mur­ray’s drives, how­ever, ended with field goals by Zane Gon­za­lez.

ESPN re­ported Mur­ray would not play in the Car­di­nals’ pre­sea­son fi­nale against the Bron­cos on Thurs­day.

Tex­ans RB Miller carted off: Tex­ans RB La­mar Miller was taken off the field on a cart af­ter suf­fer­ing an in­jury in Satur­day’s pre­sea­son game against the Cow­boys, ESPN re­ported.

Miller was tack­led above his left knee by Maliek Collins in the first quar­ter be­fore grab­bing his leg and be­ing re­moved from the field.

Miller, 28, is a two-time 1,000yard rusher. He was the Tex­ans’ lead­ing rusher with 973 yards and five TDs in 2018.

Ex-line­man’s son ac­cused of mur­der ar­rested: The son of a former NFL line­man ac­cused of mur­der­ing his par­ents last Wed­nes­day in ru­ral Min­nesota was ar­rested Satur­day in Mex­ico.

Dy­lan John Ben­nett, 22, was ar­rested on sec­ond-de­gree mur­der charges at a Can­cun ho­tel.

Dy­lan Ben­nett is ac­cused in the shoot­ing deaths of Barry Ben­nett and Carol Ben­nett, both 63. Their bod­ies were found by po­lice at their home in Long Prairie, Min­nesota.

Barry Ben­nett played 11 sea­sons with the Saints, Jets and Vik­ings un­til 1988.

Another Pats TE sus­pended: Pa­tri­ots TE Lance Ken­dricks is sus­pended with­out pay for the first game of the sea­son for vi­o­lat­ing the NFL’s pol­icy and pro­gram on sub­stances of abuse.

Ken­dricks’ sus­pen­sion leaves the Pa­tri­ots fur­ther short-handed at the po­si­tion. Ben­jamin Wat­son will miss the first four games of the sea­son for vi­o­lat­ing the league’s pol­icy on per­for­mance-en­hancers and four-time All-Pro Rob Gronkowski is re­tired.

Ken­dricks, 31, signed with the Pa­tri­ots last month af­ter eight sea­sons with the Rams and Packers.
