Indianapolis Colts QB placed on IR, will not play in 2017 season

Andrew Luck won’t be seeing the field in 2017. More

"I wish I was better and 100% this season, but that's not the case", Luck told the team website. "And I think a year of his body healing, getting the shoulder right, I think we will see a better Andrew down the line". "I know I'll be a better quarterback, teammate, person and player from this, and I'm excited for the future". Indianapolis (2-6) ultimately was left to start Scott Tolzien in their opener before acquiring Jacoby Brissett from the New England Patriots and giving him the reins. "So we're going to shut (Luck's) throwing down and we're going to continue to rehab". There was little reason to keep pressing the issue in a season such as this.

For now, though, team owner Jim Irsay is holding out hope.

Colts general manager Chris Ballard made the announcement Thursday afternoon. For so long they felt they would be in position to win the AFC South and make the playoffs as long as Luck was on the field because he's talented enough to cover up so numerous flaws on the roster. His inability to stay on the field is as much to do about bad luck as the Colts taking his talent for granted.

Asia slips in gender equality ranking
Saudi Arabia has actually made the most progress in terms of female economic participation since the report began in 2006. The U.S. saw its ranking drop from 45th last year to 49th this year, mostly due to a lack of women in U.S. politics.

The fact is the Colts don't seem to know, and perhaps Luck doesn't know, either, whether he will ever return to his previous form. He'll now have missed 26 games in the last three seasons. Luck has battled injuries and disappointing play.

Ballard said Luck will work out in multiple locations and will use a different routine to help him regain his strength. The Colts have fallen, and fallen hard, from the ranks of the league's elite teams and consistent winners.

"It's a little unusual", said Tehrany, who hasn't examined Luck.

La Vanguardia: Spanish judge orders arrest of ousted Catalan leader
The move follows last week's vote by the parliament of Catalonia to declare independence from Spain . The crimes being probed are punishable with up to 30 years in prison under Spanish law.

A legitimate question is whether the Colts would consider drafting a quarterback.

It all has gone very, very wrong of late.

During a recent interview on NFL Network's Good Morning Football, former Colts player D'Qwell Jackson was asked when he thought Luck would be back on the field and he had ominous answer.
