Andrew Luck, the star quarterback of the Indianapolis Colts, abruptly retired from football on Saturday night in a stunning move for one of the league’s top franchise players.
Luck announced his retirement in a postgame news conference after the Colts played the Bears in a preseason game. Word of his retirement surfaced during the game in a report by ESPN.
The 29-year-old was the first pick in the 2012 draft and is in the third year of a five-year contract extension that pays him an average of $23.3 million a year.
This is a developing story and will be updated.
