The NFL world is reeling after it was revealed that Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck reportedly plans to retire from football at the age of 29.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Luck met with Colts owner Jim Irsay to inform him of his decision, and there will a press conference on Sunday where the quarterback will make the news official.

Jacoby Brissett will take over as the Colts’ starting quarterback for the 2019 season.

Luck, the first overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, threw for 23,671 yards and 171 touchdowns in six NFL seasons. He missed the entire 2017 season due to injury, and after appearing in all 16 games in 2018, Luck has missed time during the preseason with a calf strain and pain in his lower left leg, and has reportedly decided to call it quits on his NFL career.

During the Colts’ game against the Chicago Bears, Luck was seen on the sidelines chatting with teammates, and fans in the stands were seen removing their jerseys after the news began to filter out.
