No, it's not the same. I don't know why you Luck fans want to pretend it is.
Luck fan: HE SUFFERED A CAREER ENDING INJURY!"
(proceeds to get called out on the false narrative)
Luck fan: "POTATO POTAHTO!"
He chose to quit. I'm pretty sure most players are in pain through out the season. He was able to still physically play if he wanted to; he didn't. Injuries and pain are a part of football; it's a rough sport.
And if it is all the same (it isn't) no body should bat an eye when I say he didn't suffer a career ending injury.
...for multiple reasons.
But it all boils down to a deliberate decision of quitting.
Career ending injury implies he had no choice, but that is false.
He chose to quit.
I don’t expect much from the NFL on this, they rarely issue punishments equal to the crime. I’ve seen them hand out 1 or 2 games suspensions for things like this but then season long bans for gambling.
