ESPN reports Luck informs Colts he’s retiring
Andrew Luck has informed the Indianapolis Colts that he is retiring from the NFL, a source told ESPN.
Luck, who turns 30 on Sept. 12, already has met with Colts owner Jim Irsay to tell him that he is retiring, the source said.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports there will be a news conference Sunday to make it official, but Luck is mentally worn down, and now checking out.
The four-time Pro Bowler out of Stanford has been plagued by injuries behind poor offensive lines.
Luck was drafted by the Colts with the first overall pick in the 2012, and appeared to be the franchise’s answer to an aging Peyton Manning. He appeared to be living up to expectations early in his career, leading Indianapolis to the playoffs in each of his first three seasons.
A shoulder injury cost him the 2017 season, and a leg injury this year has apparently made him consider retirement.
