Colts to put Andrew Luck (shoulder) on injured reserve


The Indianapolis Colts are shelving Andrew Luck for 2017.

The team announced Thursday the quarterback will be placed on injured reserve.

Luck underwent surgery on his throwing shoulder in January. Despite early optimism that he would be ready for the 2017 season, the Pro Bowler has missed the entire season and will be shut down for the remainder of the year.

“I wish I was better and 100 percent this season, but that’s not the case,” Luck told the team’s official website on Thursday. “I know I’ll be better from this. I know I’ll be a better quarterback, teammate, person and player from this, and I’m excited for the future.”

Luck missed all offseason, training camp and the preseason. He returned to practice in early October doing light throwing. After suffering a setback, the 28-year-old was held out of practices and had a cortisone injection in hopes to relieve soreness in the injured shoulder.

When that avenue didn’t work, the team shut down their franchise signal-caller for the season.

General manager Chris Ballard said Thursday the plan for Luck is rest and rehab. The QB won’t undergo a second operation. Ballard dismissed
