Andrew Luck has informed the Colts he is retiring

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero confirmed Schefter's report within 10 minutes.

ESPN reported that Luck, who turns 30 next month, had informed Colts owner Jim Irsay of his decision and would make his formal retirement announcement at a press conference Sunday.

After a lengthy battle with injuries in recent years, it appears that Andrew Luck is calling it a career.

Luck was seen in street clothes on the sideline and addressed reporters after the game.

"I'll be honest. It hurt", he said.

In Luck's absence, and immediately following the trade, Brissett led the Colts to a 4-11 record as starter in 2017. "I haven't been able to live the life I want to live".

Andrew Luck plans to retire from football, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

"It felt like a weight was lifted, but I feel exhausted and not just in a physical sense", Luck said. He dealt with a serious shoulder injury that forced him to miss a whole season in 2017.

That is expected to change now with Luck's retirement official as the Colts have a massive dead-cap charge from the 29-year-old's contract. When Luck returned to the field a few weeks later, he was playing through "significant pain" with the help of numbing injections. Then the "boos" hit Luck, from his home fans.

If this is Luck's last season, he will have set another record with his 39 touchdown passes previous year, according to Stats by Stats.

He returned last season and led the Colts back to the playoffs for the first time in four years, winning the league's Comeback Player of the Year award. Despite the lingering shoulder issues, Luck still had a pretty decent 2016 campaign for Indy, starting 15 games and throwing for 4,240 yards and 31 touchdowns against 13 interceptions.

The Colts will likely start Jacoby Brissett during the first game of the regular season against the Los Angeles Chargers.
