Luck is "mentally worn down, and now checking out", reports Schefter.

After a string of injuries, it appears that Andrew Luck is calling it a career.

Luck, who turns 30 on September 12, already has met with Colts owner Jim Irsay to tell him of the decision, the source said.

Luck will have a press conference on Sunday to make it official. He wound up being the starter for 15 games during that campaign when Luck was working his way back from shoulder surgery and then suffered a setback. Colts owner Jim Irsay sounded confident earlier this month that Luck would push through the injury, though described it as an issue with "a small little bone" in his ankle.

Potential Lineups: Manchester United vs Crystal Palace
Soon, Manchester United recognized their error, before using the opportunity to aim a cheeky dig at their league rivals. Andros Townsend, Christian Benteke, Max Meyer and Scott Dann all drop to the bench.

The No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, Luck has battled injuries throughout his seven NFL seasons, most recently a lingering calf issue that has held him out for much of the offseason. In 2014, he threw for 4,761 yards and 40 touchdowns in leading the Colts to an 11-5 record and a berth in the AFC Championship Game.

Luck returned last season and led the Colts to their first playoff appearance in four years, won the league's Comeback Player of the Year award and went to his fourth Pro Bowl.

The Colts will not play New England during the 2019 regular season.
