INDIANAPOLIS—Jan 13, 2019— The Indianapolis Colts kept insisting Andrew Luck would play better after shoulder surgery.
Frank Reich acknowledged some of his best work came in a backup role.
Apparently, It still does.
A healthy Luck and an opportunistic first-year coach led the Colts on a historic midseason turnaround, ending with a playoff run and a glimpse into a potentially promising future.
“We left our hearts on the field every game,” Luck said Sunday, a day after a 31-13 elimination loss at Kansas City.
