The Cardinals had a roster spot open up this week when undrafted rookie fullback Austin Ramesh decided to walk away from football after several concussions during his college career at Wisconsin.
The team has dragged this thing out, but it’s clear Luck isn’t healthy enough to play. The Colts will look to Brissett to carry the team for the rest of the season.
After luck was placed on IR earlier in the week, it was reported that he was advised to not throw for months in order to focus on his rehab.
Per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, there’s also a chance he could have another surgery:
First, most recommendations have Luck taking a few months off from throwing likely two to three months to focus solely on rehab. At this point, no one has recommended another surgery, though it remains a possibility.
I’m going to ask all of those people to recommend to me — because that’s what they’re protesting — people that they think were unfairly treated by the justice system. And I understand that. I’m going to ask them to recommend to me people that were unfairly treated and I’m gonna take a look at those applications and if I find and my committee finds that they’ve been unfairly treated than we’ll pardon them. Or at least let them out.
I think it’s going to be interesting, Packers special teams coordinator Ron Zook said, via Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. I think there’s a lot of people wondering about how it’s going to be. Thankfully, we have at least what we think it’s going to be now, the rules and so forth, (so) we’re able to work on it. You’re probably going to see, in my opinion — it’s just my opinion — but more returns.
