Andrew Luck suffered a setback in his recovery from offseason shoulder surgery, and one of the Colts’ best defenders is out after a big game on Monday Night Football.
It looks like Andrew Luck may be shut down for the rest of the 2017 season as general manager Chris Ballard announced that Luck required a cortisone shot in his surgically repaired shoulder and that he won’t practice at all this week.
Luck‘s road to recovery has been extremely rough ever since he went under the knife in January, and his shoulder did not respond well to his first two weeks of practices this year. With Luck possibly out for the rest of the season, Jacoby Brissett will have even more opportunity to improve each week.
John Simon was our MVP of Monday night‘s loss to the Titans as he had one sack to go along with a pick-six. Simon has been one of the Colts’ most important players this season as he has been a major upgrade on the edge of Indianapolis’ defensive line.
