Andrew Luck is 28 years old. Over the last three years of his career, he’s played 22 out of a possible 34 games, counting this Sunday’s upcoming game that he’ll miss. A shoulder injury and the delayed decision to have surgery this January to try and fix it are keeping him off the field in the prime of his career. In reality, it seems more like the Colts’ incompetence that’s stunting his career.
Game Youth Paul Konerko Jersey On Wednesday night, Luck’s agent (and uncle) Will Wilson addressed rumors that Luck wanted to be traded, saying those were simply false. It was weird news to hear, because for a lot of people there wasn’t any context for it.
Nor should there have been. The rumors were pretty low level to begin with, but they made it onto the air via ESPN’s Mike and Mike show.
It’s been two years, almost to the day, that Luck first injured his shoulder. Since then, Luck and the Colts have followed a program alternating between rest and rehab and trying to play through it, before he finally had surgery this year. At that time, it was believed that he wouldn’t miss any time this season.
The secondary did it’s job, and the defensive line did it’s job, which allowed Von Miller and Shaq Barrett to harass Prescott. Miller came away with two sacks, breaking a streak of 5 games without a sack. Miller continues to be a massive threat, and offensive coordinators must adjust to his presence.
The Cowboys had obviously put together a game plan concentrating on Miller. As their plan fell apart, Miller was able to pressure and then eventually get to Prescott.
Game Youth Jack Ham Jersey On the other side of the ball, the offensive line played well. Not great, but good enough to allow the Broncos to move the ball, and get points on the board. It is still not a perfect unit, and with the Garett Bolles injury, things might get a little worrisome in the coming weeks. However, C.J. Anderson ran behind that line like a man possessed.
