Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck's latest debilitating injury is a "small little bone," according to Jim Irsay. I'm twelve years old, so naturally my thought was, "is he talking about his dick?"
But, no. Here's the timeline:
Luck has had a calf strain since April and didn't participate in any of the Colts' offseason activities or practices. In May, head coach Frank Reich insisted it was "just a calf strain." Mhmm. Fast-forward to training camp and Luck has been sitting on the sideline twiddling his thumbs the whole time while the team has pushed aside questions, while insisting he's just fine and dandy, and they're just being cautious.
When have we seen this before? Oh yeah, just about a year and a half ago, when Irsay insisted Luck will start the season opener, only to have him sit the entire season.
One of the biggest questions is if this is somehow related to his mysterious calf strain, or if this is a whole other issue. The Colts are a strong team that can make a hard playoff push with Andrew Luck -- without him is another story altogether.
