Still no Luck for the Colts

22 October 2017 03:06:55 GMTPlus11

The Indianapolis Colts will once again be without quarterback Andrew Luck when they entertain the Jacksonville Jaguars this Sunday at the Lucas Oil Stadium.

Luck has been dealing with inflammation in his injured shoulder and there is a growing train of thought that the Colts will shut down their franchise player for the rest of the season to have him fully fit for the 2018 campaign.

Part of that decision, should it come, will no doubt take into account the porous offensive line, which Indianapolis will need to address in either the Draft or free agency.

Jacoby Brissett, acquired from the New England Patriots, remains behind center, but the former North Carolina State Wolfpack star must improve his percentage completion rate if the Colts are to be competitive this season.

Currently 2-4, and with victories over the winless San Francisco 49ers and Cleveland Browns, it is indicative of the Indianapolis level of play that both of those wins were by only a field goal.

The Jaguars, 1.01 to win the AFC South, arrive in town with an even 3-3 record. Comfortable winners over the Houston Texans, Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers by 22, 37 and 21 points respectively, Jacksonville has also come up short against the Tennessee Titans, New York Jets and the Los Angeles Rams.

Rookie running back Leonard Fournette appears to be a game time decision after injuring his ankle against the Rams.

The Jaguars have a bye week next Sunday and then have four very winnable games, hosting the Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Chargers and travelling to take on the Cleveland Browns and the Arizona Cardinals.

The Jaguars are 4.33 to win the AFC Championship with the Denver Broncos 1213.00 and the New England Patriots priced at 1.20.
