Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is reportedly set to retire after just six seasons in the league

After years of dealing with injuries behind poor offensive lines, it appears the mental trauma has caused Luck to look more toward his future, which means ending his pro football career much shorter than anyone ever expected it to be.

He is planning to announce his decision on Sunday at a press conference, according to a report from ESPN.

According to Schefter, Luck is simply "mentally worn down" after his latest injury.

In news that is sure to shock the NFL, Andrew Luck reportedly "has informed" the Indianapolis Colts that he is retiring from the league.

As she plodded back up her driveway at home, Lucie's hair looked windswept and she struggled to keep her cardigan and socks up. Even her shimmery unicorn backpack was slung over her arm wearily as the little girl trudged in from her first day of school.

Luck turns 30 years old on September 12th and was the first overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft out of Stanford.

The former No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft has been an elite quarterback when on the field, but he has dealt with vast injuries throughout his career. That came one year after he was out for the season with a shoulder injury. He passed for 4,593 yards, 39 touchdowns and was named the NFL's Most Improved Player last season.

In six seasons, Luck threw for 23,671 yards with 171 yards and 83 interceptions. He made the playoffs four times with his longest run going to the AFC Championship game in 2014.
