The Indianapolis Colts will receive a big boost to their offense today, as starting signal caller Andrew Luck will be returning. He was listed as questionable leading up to the game with a shoulder injury.
However, he’s going to give it a go, as 40-year-old Matthew Hasselbeck went 2-0 when called upon. This is not surprising news, as head coach Chuck Pagano said that if Luck went through an entire practice on Friday, he’ll be able to play.
Luck did get through the entire practice session and even NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport insists that Luck could have played last week on Thursday Night Football against the Houston Texans if they really needed him.
With the Colts facing the New England Patriots, don’t be surprised if he comes out throwing as the team looks to get some type of revenge on the Patriots. Remember, the Colts were the team, who went to the NFL that started the “Deflategate” drama.
The 26-year-old has gone 65-of-116 for 753 yards and five touchdowns. He’s also thrown seven interceptions, which is tied with Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning and Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie Jameis Winston for the second most in the league.
Luck also rushed 14 times for 65 yards and lost a fumble.
