The good news is that the field at Ralph Wilson Stadium won’t be an issue for tonight’s Colts preseason opener against the Buffalo Bills.
But there’s bad news for those wanting to see quarterback Andrew Luck in his first action since early November: Luck won’t play in tonight’s game, according to team owner Jim Irsay.
Irsay just sent out a tweet that saying as much: “Colts Fans; it's a long Pre-Season and 2 Home Games are coming in the next 2 Weeks. Look for #12 to make 1st Start then instead of tonight.”
Luck, when speaking to reporters on Thursday, seemed as if he expected to play, the story said. Coach Chuck Pagano singled out specific players who had been ruled out but did not mention Luck.
