INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – When the Colts announced Thursday that Andrew Luck would not play this season, not many fans were surprised, but some were angry.

“If he needed surgery, they should’ve done it immediately, not waited and played around with it,” said fan Mike Shelley.

The quarterback has been battling a shoulder injury ever since 2015. Early this year, he underwent a surgery to repair it and he’s been recovering ever since.

Luck did return to practice in October, but after two weeks, the team “shut down” their franchise quarterback’s throwing due to lingering soreness and inflammation in his shoulder.

With Luck still experiencing pain, he was placed on injured reserve Thursday, officially ending his season.

Colts general manager Chris Ballard says he is confident that this is not a career-threatening type of injury.

Although the Colts are optimistic about Luck’s eventual return to the field, many fans are frustrated.

“They made it seem like there was potential of him coming back, but they knew he was not coming back,” said fan Tiffany Perry.

Some went as far as accusing management of lying to the fan base about the quarterback’s recovery to sell tickets and took to Twitter to ask for refunds.

Some took the chance to call for management changes.

Others are looking forward to a healthy Luck and fresh start in 2018.
