8/25/2019 Andrew Luck, Ind, QB
In a stunning development Saturday night, Luck announced his retirement. Luck said the repeated injuries, lingering pain and continual rehab took away his love for the game.

Analysis: Luck spent seven season with the Colts since they selected him with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 draft. Luck led the team to the playoffs in each of his first three seasons, including back-to-back AFC South titles and the AFC Championship Game in 2014. Luck has dealt with various injuries, missing 26 games, including the entire 2017 season.
8/15/2019 Cody Kessler, Phi, QB
Kessler was knocked out of the team's 24-10 preseason victory against the Jaguars on the opening drive Thursday night. Defensive end Datone Jones came unblocked off the edge and walloped Kessler in the back. Kessler was escorted to the sideline, evaluated for a head injury in the locker room and then placed in the concussion protocol. The team already was without backup Nate Sudfeld, who broke his left wrist in the team's preseason opener against the Titans.

Analysis: Kessler appeared in five games last season with Jacksonville and was 85 for 131 for 709 yards with two TDs and two interceptions.
8/13/2019 Andrew Luck, Ind, QB
Luck will likely miss the rest of the preseason with an injury near the front of his left ankle. Colts general manager Chris Ballard says he isn't sure if the injury will keep Luck out of the Sept. 8 season opener against the Chargers.

Analysis: Indy's starting quarterback has been dealing with lower leg pain since straining his left calf in March. Luck missed all of the team's offseason workouts and has not participated in any full team drills at training camp. Luck played all 16 games last season, throwing for 4,593 yards with 39 TDs and 15 interceptions.
8/13/2019 Golden Tate, NYG, WR
Tate has had the appeal of his four-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's policy on performance enhancers turned down. He's eligible to return Oct. 6 against the Vikings.

Analysis: Tate, who signed a $37.5 million contract as a free agent with the Giants in March, announced the suspension in a Twitter post on July 27. He said he intended to appeal it and felt his case had merit because he was using a fertility drug prescribed by a doctor. Tate split last season with the Lions and Eagles, catching 74 passes for 795 yards and four touchdowns in 15 games.
