The Indianapolis Colts have decided to continue sitting quarterback Andrew Luck. Adam Schefter shared the news via twitter today.
Colts already have ruled out Andrew Luck for Sunday’s game against Arizona. He doesn’t sound close to playing anytime soon.

It is unclear when Luck will return. Luck is recovering from a shoulder injury from last season. He was taken off the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list last week. The Colts are looking to be cautious with their star quarterback and not rush him back before he is ready.
There is no doubt about it. The Colts need Luck back. Scott Tolzien tried but just could not do it. In their week one matchup, the Colts were destroyed by the Los Angeles Rams 46-9. Tolzien’s first pass of the game was intercepted and returned for a touchdown.
Though there is a lot more the Colts need to fix, having Luck in the game at least gives them a chance. Despite the lackluster performances by his teammates, Luck still made it at number 7 in the Def Pen Quarterback Rankings. Luck deserves better.
