INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck announced Sunday night he's retiring from the NFL.

He made the announcement at a press conference after the team's pre-season loss to the Chicago Bears.

ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported Luck's retirement plans during Sunday night's game.

Luck was the number one draft pick in 2012, but has dealt with several injuries in his six-year career.

That includes a shoulder injury that required surgery, leading him to miss the entire 2017 season, and a lower leg issue that kept him out of action this pre-season.

Over his career luck passed for 23,671 and 171 touchdowns, and rushed for 1,590 yards and 14 touchdowns.
