1. The Return of Andrew Luck

Colts fans really haven’t gotten an extended live look at Andrew Luck since his season-ending lacerated kidney injury that he suffered in Week 9 of this past season against the Denver Broncos.

The Colts young superstar quarterback is reportedly fully healthy and has looked sharp in practices, but Colts fans will get to see firsthand for themselves.

It goes without saying, but the Colts season will likely go as far as #12 can take them.

The former 2012 #1 overall pick and face of the franchise is coming off a disappointing season in which he threw for just 15 touchdowns to 12 interceptions and posted a career low passer rating of 74.9–having battled and missed 9 games due to injuries.

However, he’s just one year removed from throwing for a league-leading 40 touchdown passes and carrying the Colts to the AFC Championship game.

The Colts will need Luck to regain his prior form if this is going to be a successful season and for the health of the franchise long-term:
