Jacoby Brissett Named Colts Starter for Now, Not Playing Saturday

Luck informed the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday that he plans to retire from the league, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Luck will have a press conference on Sunday to make it official.

Luck has most recently struggled to recover from a lower left leg injury. Though the team remained optimistic about his return - and wanted to name a starter following the game this week - Luck has apparently made up his mind.

Luck, who turns 30 in September, won NFL Comeback Player of the Year for his performance last season.

Meanwhile, Brissett has played exceptionally in Luck's absence, including an 8-for-10, 100 yard performance against the Browns in the team's second preseason game.

Luck's former coach Chuck Pagano made his first return to Lucas Oil Stadium since he was sacked as the Colts' head coach following the 2017 season.

Indianapolis, widely considered a vogue Super Bowl pick, has the moderately experienced Jacoby Brissett as its backup quarterback.

"This game will be big as far as the final evaluations as far as the roster is concerned - you know, this game and the next game", Reich told Colts.com about Saturday's Bears game, as well as Thursday's preseason finale on the road against the Cincinnati Bengals. After 2016, where I played in pain and was unable to regularly practice, I made a vow to myself that I would not go down that path again.
