How Much Money Andrew Luck Is Giving Up By Retiring

Angry Indianapolis Colts fans rained boos down on QB Andrew Luck as he walked off the field after a Colts-Bears preseason game, after it was revealed on air that the oft-injured Luck would be retiring from the National Football League effective immediately.

"This is not an easy decision", Luck told reporters after the Colts' loss to the Chicago Bears in Saturday night's preseason game. But the news broke during the fourth quarter of the Colts-Bears game, prompting a buzz in the crowd at Indianapolis' Lucas Oil Stadium. I haven't been able to life the live I want to live.

Luck, who turns 30 on September 12, already met with Colts owner Jim Irsay, according to ESPN. It was initially called a calf issue before the ankle was determined to be the problem earlier this month.

The No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft has missed most of camp and the preseason with an ankle injury but nobody expected this to be his next move. He was on the field Saturday before the Colts took on the Bears, and stood on the sideline with his teammates throughout the game. He also threw for 2,254 yards, 12 touchdowns and 13 interceptions in eight playoff games, going 4-4. This is a player who is one of the best in the game when healthy and on the field.

In his remarks, he insisted that the United Kingdom would be an "energetic partner" on the world stage after Brexit. Johnson "faces a dilemma", said Charles Grant, director of the Centre for European Reform think-tank.

He was sidelined for half of the 2015 season with an injury, and despite rebounding in 2016, he played the second half of the season with a sore shoulder that cost him the entire 2017 season.

Luck appeared to return to form in 2016, throwing for 4,240 yards and 31 touchdowns and playing in 15 of 16 games.

Ballard and coach Frank Reich initially described the injury as a strained calf, but when Luck continued to complain about soreness, team officials started digging deeper to get answers. "So we're still going to protect Jacoby anyway".
