 Andrew Luck has lackluster performance in Colts' second preseason game
Five series of work yielded a 6-for-13 night for the Indianapolis Colts’ franchise QB in his second preseason game in two years, a 20-19 loss to the Baltimore Ravens at Lucas Oil Stadium. "I didn’t feel like we as an offense got into any semblance of a sustained rhythm. That’s tough. That’s tough," Luck said."I think we were just sloppy a little bit. And penalties hurt and getting in some third-and-longs hurt. We did not run the ball as well as we would’ve liked, and first- and second-down passing game was not as good as we would’ve liked. I don’t think it’s very complicated. Pretty simple. We’ve got some stuff to work on."Those six completions went for just 50 yards, as the Colts noticeably kept the offensive playbook vanilla. Top receiver T.Y. Hilton sat with a shoulder injury — not considered serious — and Indianapolis was down to its third-string running back and second-string offensive tackles. You could tell. For the most part, this was ugly.MORE NFL:"My experience tells me protection at times was not great," coach Frank Reich said, assessing Luck's night. "Just didn’t find Reuben Foster Jersey Cheap

 gaffe came on his second series, an ill-advised interception in the red zone that cost the Colts points. "I tried to force it," he admitted. "Bad decision. Bad throw." But he was accurate in other spots, whipping a pair of downfield shots to Jack Doyle that went for 16 yards, each his longest completions of this young preseason.A few drops from his receivers – yeah, we’re talking about you, Ryan Grant – didn’t help. Neither did a blindside hit from Baltimore’s bruising Pro Bowl linebacker Terrell Suggs, a shot Luck immediately bounced up from.It’s the biggest hit he’s taken in 18 months.And it was important.After he exited the game, Luck stood on the sideline with Anthony Castonzo, his left tackle and one of his closest friends on the team. The QB told Castonzo it was actually "fun" to get hit by Suggs, to get that part of the comeback over and done with. Castonzo's response?"A death stare," Luck said, laughing.The sack cost the Colts nine yards, but helped Luck clear a hurdle that's been a long, long time in the making. It's another box he can check off. He's been doing that a lot this preseason."I landed on my right elbow, sort of reminiscent of how I injured my shoulder a couple of years ago," Luck Deion Sanders White Elite Jersey
