Andrew Luck sidelined 2-6 weeks with lacerated kidney

Only two days after knocking off the undefeated Denver Broncos for their biggest win of the season, the Indianapolis Colts’ “Luck” has officially run out.  

The Colts announced that Andrew Luck will miss the next 2-6 weeks with a lacerated kidney.

Via ESPN: 

“It is one heck of a blow,” Pagano said. “You don’t want to lose anybody, especially your starting quarterback. Our guys will respond like they always do. We’ve been through a ton already this season and in the past, and we’ll get through it. We’ll get through it.”

This is a huge loss for the Colts, as they finally resembled the team that many predicted they would be on Sunday, with Luck playing his best game of the season. Fortunately for the Colts they play in the worst division in football and have a more than capable backup QB, which should allow them to remain in playoff contention until Luck returns.
