By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

As we continue to award our 2018 NFL awards, this award is the Associated Press Comeback Player of the Year. This was an easy decision.

After missing a season due to injury, Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck had one of the best seasons of his career in 2018. He even guided the Colts to the playoffs, as they will face the Houston Texans this weekend in the AFC Wild Card Round.
