With the start of the NFL season less than two weeks away, Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, the first pick in the 2012 NFL draft, and a four-time pro bowl selection, announced on Saturday night that he’s retiring.
During his career, the 29-year-old has suffered a lacerated kidney, a torn abdomen, torn cartilage, and a concussion.
An emotional Luck said he’s too beat up to continue. Luck was 57-37 as a starter in the NFL, and had a 4-4 record in the playoffs.
Sports Zone’s Noah Newman and Samaria Terry react to his announcement and the backlash he’s received.
