Andrew Luck is retiring from the NFL, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

“Andrew Luck has informed the Colts he is retiring from the NFL, per source,” Schefter wrote on Twitter. “There will be a press conference Sunday to make it official, but Luck is mentally worn down, and now checking out.”

Luck confirmed the report to Field Yates of ESPN after the Colts’ preseason game on Saturday night.

“I’ve been stuck in this process,” Luck said. “I haven’t been able to live the life I want to live. It’s taken the joy out of this game … the only way forward for me is to remove myself from football.”

Luck missed all of training camp with a leg injury that seemed to change and grow more serious with each report.
