ESPN re­ports Luck in­forms Colts he’s re­tir­ing

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Sports -

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.
