After a string of injuries, it appears that Andrew Luck is calling it a career.
Luck informed the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday that he plans to retire from the league, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The move is expected to be made official on Sunday, and Luck has already met with Colts owner Jim Irsay to inform him of his decision.
Luck, according to Schefter, is simply “mentally worn down” after his latest injury. The Colts have known that he was “seriously mulling retiring” for the past few weeks, too, according to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
The 29-year-old was on the sidelines for the Colts’ preseason game against the Chicago Bears on Saturday night at Lucas Oil Stadium, and remained there even after the news of his retirement broke.
Colts fans weren’t too happy with him as he walked off the field after their 27-17 loss, however, booing him as he left.
