Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck has decided to retire, according to ESPN. He will make the decision publicly official Sunday at a press conference. He has already spoken with Colts owner Jim Irsay to inform him of the decision.
Luck turns 30 next month but has struggled with multiple injuries in recent years.
Luck was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. He led the Colts to the playoffs in each of his first three seasons before the injury issues. He battled them for much of 2015 and 2016, then sat out the entire 2017 season after undergoing offseason shoulder surgery. Luck returned in 2018 looked very much like his former self for much of the year. He has not played in any of the Colts preseason games due to a calf injury.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Luck is “mentally worn down and now checking out.”
