Andrew Luck had a thirst for contact when he played at Stanford. Aside from being one of the most NFL-ready passers scouts had witnessed in recent years, he wasn’t looking to slide to the ground or get out of bounds when he set out to run. If he could trample somebody in his way, the game would be especially satisfying.
We haven’t seen that quarterback in quite some time. When Luck took the field for the Colts’ exhibition opener against Seattle on Thursday night, it was his first game action in 19 months. And he looked delightfully familiar.
His surgically repaired right shoulder finally healthy, Luck delivered the ball with authority over two drives.
