Luck being shut down from practice this week.

Recommended Posts

Is having soreness from throwing. Unplanned presser from Ballard just to address this,  Starting to believe he wont be playing at all this season.

JMV show just said he will be "Shut Down for next 2 weeks and would not confirm or deny that Luck will PLAY this year"  Done with the LIES from this organization...:angry:

This update is about as truthful as they have been in the whole process, at least in my eyes.  Season is getting close to being about half over though so they probably felt it was time to go ahead and plant the seed that he may not be coming back at all this year.  I think that was a very legit possibility from the get go, but they weren't going to tell the fanbase that before the first game even kicked off. In fact, at this point why not just I.R. the guy? Is it because they are concerned fans will totally tune the team out the last half the year?

JMV is the best. I bet Luck doesn't play this year but if he doesn't I am fine with it because we cant win the SB anyway and need him healthy for the next 5 years.

I wouldn’t put him on IR, but I wouldn’t start him at all this season. He should still try to practice with the team. It’s clear he won’t be 100% for a while.

This is definitely not the news I was waiting for...

 

I'm starting to doubt he will ever play...this season.

I don't think he will

Ugh. Not good. Just roll with Brissett and maybe we can win another 4-5 games this season.

On a separate but somewhat-related track - a guy called in to NFL radio this morning and said the Packers should get Tolzein from the Colts, and have him start for the rest of the season.

im with others.  sit him and get him ready for next year.  you have to think future with him and rushing him back with this coaching staff is not wise.

I'd be lying if I said that questions about his long term prospects weren't starting to creep in. I don't like the way this is headed.

Yeah we just have to roll with Brissett this season and just come out next season guns a blazin with 1 more Draft by Ballard and Andrew at 100%. I think we will be good next season.

Andrew will be 100% next season, a year off is probably the best thing that could happen for him. He will be back.

Truly unfortunate but this is beginning to look like a lost season and I am a very optimistic fan.  Time to see if maybe Vontae or Gore can be moved for something?

Remember, this is the first thing I said we would see happen. The rumors will come at the end of the year.

Yeah I am ok with keeping him out, he needs to rest and get back to 2012 Luck which he will. We need another Draft too, the injuries he has suffered have been bad, Shoulder injury but ruptured spleen, etc.. Lacerated Kidney

While I am not advocating for Luck to sit if healthy, it appears as if he is probably a month off at best?  That looks to be 2-8 or 3-7 at best.  So if he can return, please do but this team needs to look at moving players with any value that won't be part of the team next year.  Let the kids play and develop and try to grab some mid round draft picks, IF Possible?

Everyone wants to see Andrew back, I do as well. I agree with your Post but I think we are a year away to really being good so if Andrew doesn't play I am ok with it. He will be 100% next season without a doubt.

Well that's not good.  I really hope this isn't a permanent injury, or something that will require more surgery.  I'm starting to feel like the injury was absolutely horrible OR the surgery was botched somehow.

A lot of people don't have patience, rushing him back would be the worst thing IMO.

Why the team doctor left?

 

BTW, I know, I know, he wasn't the surgeon.

Yeah I have a feeling he doesn't play this year but he will be 100% next year so it's all good.

I have been a Colts fan since I was in pampers....almost 50 years...I have learned patience!  My Yankees are proof of that as well!

Luck seems to be very similar to your avatar.

    • Agreed. I hope he finds what he needs in Europe. And thank you for sharing sources. 
    • Most of us forget about this hiring, the ex Green Beret brought in to measure and analyze e very player the Colts attempt to sign.  His analysis  involves character as well as many other things to help us determine if the plAyer has the right stuff for an NFL career.  I only bring it up wondering how much influence he may have already had with some of our trades and signings.  Like Brissett maybe.  I know he wasn't involved in the previous draft.  Here's a link.  https://www.stampedeblue.com/2017/5/10/15611404/chris-ballard-explains-what-brian-decker-rex-hogan-bring-to-colts-front-office
    • How can you say they’re playing fine when our coverage is so bad. Maybe they’re giving up one or two big plays a game but that’s how you lose football games. Lol 
    • With the Colts not playing this week, it allows a chance to look at where we are as a team and, if you are to look at our season so far based on pre-season expectations, it makes for quite good reading, in my opinion.   So I decided to make a list, based on pre season expectations, listing who has been a pleasant surprise so far, and who has been a disappointment:   Pleasant Surprises   Jacoby Brissett - Goes without saying, he has been a very solid stand in for Andrew.  Has made errors but I don't think anyone could expect a 2nd year player to move systems and play as well as he has.  Not worth thinking about how the team would have played with Tolzein under center. Cornerbacks - Did anyone expect Desir and Melvin to be as strong as they have been?  Melvin asking to go up against Brown last week says a lot about his character too. Nate Hairston - I love this guy.  Potentially my number one pick for this category and a long term asset for this defense. Al Woods - Hankins was the big money addition, and has done well, but Woods has been excellent value. John Simon - I cant decide if I love him or Hairston more!   Mathias Farley - Hard hitting, strong in the tackle.  Very solid player. Rigoberto Sanchez - When Locke was cut, did anyone else have a sinking feeling in their stomach?  Sanchez has played so well I don't even think anyone has missed Pat (for his punting anyway), which is a massive compliment to the kid.  Kudos Tom McMahon for unearthing this talent.   Disappointments   Vontae Davis - A real disappointment for me.  All the talk from training camp was that he was back to the old Vontae, then picks up an injury and comes back and plays poorly.  Donte Moncrief - It was interesting hear the WR coach talk about him last week, admitting that he has been "hot and cold" and its so frustrating to see the raw ability not convert to the field regularly enough.  I still think there is something there but would not be surprised if Ballard lets him go. Jack Doyle - It was interesting listening to the "Chopping Wood" podcast where they mentioned that Doyle cost us two games.  He did have that one game where he was phenomenal but he had high expectations from last year and being made TE1 for 2017.  I am not worried about him long term, but has to be listed here. Le-Raven Clark - Say no more.   Other Notes:   Marlon Mack - I don't think I can put him in as a pleasant surprise as there were expectations on him and, although he has been explosive in some instances, still a lot to work on in protection and inside running. Offensive Line - I did think hard about putting them in disappointments (not just Clark) but I don't think anyone came in thinking they would be an elite unit and, with the amount of injuries and shuffling, I actually think they have faired as I would have expected.  A long way to go but Castonzo has been strong I think (and unfairly targeted) and Kelly is a stud so there are strong building blocks and I trust Ballard will address this after focussing so hard on the defense this year. Honourable Mentions - Mingo, Gore, Hunt, Sheard.   Looking at the above, although the record is poor (and you are what your record says you are), to look at what we have done in recruitment and the increasing trajectory of play, a change of coaching (which seems inevitable) could mean we come back strong in 2018, with the potential for strong draft acquisitions.   Feel free to add your own for either category but thought I would share my perspective....  
    • Guys....   Not be a Debbie downer here, but let’s not fall into this trap again. We’ve been down this road many times with players who probably aren’t in the league anymore.   While I agree about Hairston, let’s pump the breaks on Desir. He’s had a couple nice moments, but future starter is jumping the gun for him. Let’s wait and see what the rest of the season is like for Desir. There was a time last year when the OL was “fixed”. I’m all in on Hairston who has been exceptional every week but one step at a time.
