Shit just keeps going wrong for the Indianapolis Colts. Just days removed from an impressive win over the Denver Broncos, the team announced that quarterback Andrew Luck has a lacerated kidney.
It’s possible that an optimistic Colts fan could have found some hope in yesterday’s 27-21 loss to the Saints, which featured the Colts nearly coming back from a 27-point deficit before running out of time. But that would require one to ignore the first half, as well as the “heated conversation” that owner Jim Irsay…
The Colts have got to be cursing the NFL schedule makers for sticking them with the Thursday night game this week, because if there was ever a team that needed a few more days to rest up, it’s this one.
The Colts have tried to downplay whatever’s wrong with Andrew Luck’s health. On Sunday, coach Chuck Pagano said he was OK. On Monday, Luck declared himself “fine.” On Wednesday, Pagano casually read off his injury list—mentioning Luck eighth. For the last two days, Luck has been officially “limited” in practice,…
The Colts are bad. They’ve faced a pair of excellent defenses in the Bills and Jets, but that doesn’t negate the fact that Indianapolis’s O-line is a sieve, the defense is a grab bag, and all-world QB Andrew Luck has been given aging, retread weapons. Luck, too, looked sub-replacement-level in last night’ 20-7 loss.…
Indianapolis agreed to terms with Andre Johnson yesterday, adding the WR to a sizable and significant free-agency haul that figures to upgrade the Colts at multiple positions on both sides of the ball. Every year or two, one team decides that its window is as open as it's ever going to be, and makes the short-term…
It's kind of weird:
The Wall Street Journal's Kevin Clark has a delightful examination of the unexpectedly pleasant trash talk of that nice young quarterback in Indianapolis. If you sack Andrew Luck, he's gonna compliment you on it.

We've pointed out here before that Andrew Luck is gross , but the Colts quarterback just keeps giving us reasons to make videos that will ruin your lunch.
Mostly, it's because of that up there.
Colts punter Pat McAfee tweeted this picture out of the Indianapolis locker room following their insane comeback win over the Chiefs and but for an extremely well-placed man on a cellphone, we're probably all looking at Andrew Luck's johnce. But, that man on the cell-phone was placed, so Mcafee is spared Vanderjagt…
The Colts just took their first lead of the game to go up 45-44 with under five minutes left to cap an absurd comeback. This, the previous touchdown, was most absurd of all.
Reggie Wayne's injury cast a pall over the Colts' invigorating win against Denver. He crumpled to the turf without sustaining contact, and now there's real fear he's done for the season.
The Colts' first score came on this bomb to T.Y. Hilton, who juked Earl Thomas and walked in for a touchdown. The 73-yard pass is Andrew Luck's longest completed pass in his short career, even though Hilton chipped in about 30 yards of work.
We tried to tell you T.Y. Hilton was awesome. Do you believe us yet?
