Andrew Luck Has High-Ankle Injury

Billy Woods | August 15th, 2019

Quarterback Andrew Luck underwent tests this week and it was revealed he is dealing with a high-ankle injury. According to reports, Luck has been experiencing pain around his calf since March. Throughout training camp, the Indianapolis Colts and Luck were dealing with the injury, as Luck had missed a significant amount of practices.

Luck has a major history of injuries that sideline him. There’s no doubt about the talent that Luck offers. The Colts are a serious threat to win the AFC and compete for a Super Bowl when he’s healthy. But, in all cases, the best ability is availability.

Luck missed all the 2017 NFL season due to a surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder. That shoulder injury originated in Week 3 of 2015. The torn labrum combined with a lacerated kidney and a concussion forced a tough 2016 season for the veteran quarterback. Even with the multiple injuries, Luck still passed for 4,240 yards and 31 touchdowns with only 13 interceptions.

After the injuries began to stack, the Colts used multiple early draft picks on offensive lineman to block for the star quarterback. Luck returned in 2018 to pass for 4,593 yards and 39 touchdowns with only 15 interceptions, as he was named the NFL Comeback Player of the Year.

The production from Luck has always been there. The problem is his consistent ability to miss games. As of right now, Luck is unsure if he will be able to suit-up Week 1 against the Los Angeles Chargers. With every report, the severity of the injury worsens.

In Luck’s absence, backup quarterback Jacoby Brissett has been practicing with the first-team offense. Brissett started 15 games in 2017 when Luck missed the entirety of the season. Injuries have derailed the value and production of Luck’s promising career. If he can manage to stay healthy, the Colts are poised to make a deep playoff run in the AFC.
