Andrew Luck’s NFL journey was cut short.

One of the most entertaining players to watch during his playing days, the Stanford product shockingly decided to retire just days before the start of the season.

Some Indianapolis Colts fans felt betrayed and even booed him, but he’s mostly beloved and respected.

Also, it was easy to understand his decision, as the Colts had infamously allowed him to take sack after sack and big hit after big hit, and his body just couldn’t hold up anymore.

Still, given his age and talent, some thought it was just a matter of time before he decided to get back on the field.

Fast forward to today, and that hasn’t happened.

More than that, it seems like it might not happen at all.

Luck made an appearance in Indianapolis to show support for his former head coach, Chuck Pagano, who held his 12th annual ChuckStrong TailGate Gala.

It was one of the few public appearances he’s made since walking away from the game, and he had a long sit down with the media.

There, the former No. 1 selection admitted that he was at peace with the idea of retirement, adding that he hasn’t had the urge or itch to get back on the field since he made that decision (via Mike Chappell):

“I think when I retired, that part of it was put to bed in my mind in a very simple, direct way,’’ he said, adding he clearly was “tormented inside, as you guys saw that night. But that part of it has been stowed away.’’

The Colts have struggled to find a new franchise quarterback since Luck walked away, but it seems like they have finally found their guy with Anthony Richardson.

Even if that’s not the case, the fans may have to let go of the hope of having Luck back on the field, at least as their starting quarterback.
