Andrew Luck’s father shares thoughts on whether he thinks QB will return to NFL
Because of his age and the abrupt nature of his retirement, questions continue to persist about whether Andrew Luck will play in the NFL again. However, all signs point to his playing career truly being over.
Luck’s father Oliver, who is the CEO and commissioner of the XFL, was asked about the possibility of Andrew returning to the NFL during an appearance on “The Dan Le Batard Show” on Wednesday. While he would not say for sure, the elder Luck said he did not get the impression this year that his son had the itch to play again.
XFL Commissioner Oliver Luck, to the @LeBatardShow, on whether he thinks his son Andrew will play again in the NFL: “I didn’t notice any hankering from him to get back on the field.”

The Indianapolis Colts have made it clear that they are not counting on Luck to return, which makes sense. While he is still only 30, Luck’s situation is similar to that of former New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski. They gave up playing because of all the significant injuries they suffered and concern over their quality of life going forward.
All indications have been that Luck has no intention of playing football again. His father’s comments only reinforce that.
