Andrew Luck’s shoulder announces it is not ready to play for the Colts yet

While the Indianapolis Colts are hoping that their starting quarterback Andrew Luck will be returning to action soon, there is someone very important that is not quite ready to play football just yet.

In January, Luck underwent surgery to repair a lingering issue in his throwing shoulder, and his status for the start of the season is still unknown. Yet, his right shoulder is more than a little nervous about rushing back to the field. Luck’s shoulder stated in an interview with the Daly Dose, that it is not looking forward to returning to the gridiron anytime soon.

“Are you crazy?” the shoulder asked. “Have you seen that offensive line? I am not ready to go out there, and get hit again, and again. I am 27 years old, and I am not ready to be replaced already. I have only been in this league for five years, and I have already been sacked over 150 times! I am pretty sure that the Colts are trying to kill Andrew. He might be too dumb to see it, but I’m not. I’ve had enough.”

On Sunday, without Luck in the lineup, the Colts offense struggled under backup quarterback Scott Tolzien. Indianapolis managed just 27 yards, in three drives, with Tolzien at the helm.

Colts management is hopeful that Luck will be returning prior to the start of the regular season, stating that his rehabilitation is going well, and his strength is better than ever.

Luck’s right shoulder disagrees. “I don’t care about lifting weights.” it stated. “That doesn’t mean a thing. You think I care about bench pressing when a defensive lineman lands on me? Nope. Ask Andrew’s spleen what lifting weights did for him. Get out of here with that nonsense.”

Bills shutout Patriots after Belichick starts mannequin at quarterback 

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick has proven that he is capable of coaching up less experienced quarterbacks. 

But even he couldn’t overcome the limitations of his latest starter.

With starting quarterback Tom Brady serving the final game of his four game suspension, Belichick has found ways to win with backups Jimmy Garappalo and Jacoby Brissett. 

But with Garappalo suffering from a shoulder injury, and Brissett nursing a sore thumb, Belichick decided to start a quarterback that got everyone’s attention.

Belichick started a plastic mannequin at quarterback on Sunday, against the Buffalo Bills, and it proved to be too much for the Patriots to overcome.

The Patriots were shutout 16-0 at home as they were held to just 277 total yards. 

The mannequin did manage to throw for 187 yards and even converted a third down, but Bills defenders eventually caught on to the fact that the piece of plastic could not actually hurt them down field.

“We tried to get “Manny” ready, but obviously he has some limitations.” said Belichick after the game. “We are ready for Tom to come back, and we are moving on to Cleveland.”

On the other side of the field, it only took Bills coach a few quarters to realize something was different.

“I’m not sure who that guy was.” Ryan bellowed after the game. “But I think we proved that we can play with anyone today and that I am just as good of a coach as Bill Belichick.”

“If they start that same quarterback the next time we see them, I am pretty confident that I can come up with a game plan to stop him. He looked very stiff back there.”
