The #colts have made headlines for all the wrong reasons this NFL season. Their franchise quarterback, #Andrew Luck hasn't played a down this NFL season because of complications he has with his surgically repaired right shoulder that happened in the offseason. Luck did make progress in the past week, throwing the ball and taking part in light practices [VIDEO]. On Wednesday he was shut down from throwing because of soreness and was given a cortisone shot. He has already been ruled out for week seven, so should the Colts plan for Luck to sit out the rest of the season?

Play the man

The Colts sit at 2-4 which is dead last in the #Afc South.

Many might see this as a reason to sit Luck out but this is more of a reason to keep the door open to Luck playing this season. They are currently a game out of a tie for the top spot in the division and two of their next three games are against AFC South opponents.

If the Colts can manage to win these division games, they could possibly take the top spot in the division. GM Chris Ballard said there is no timetable for his return, but in a division like this, it could all come down to one game. If the Colts can be in a position to win the division later in the season, and if Luck is truly healthy, they should give him the chance to get this below average Colts team to the playoffs. Luck is a game changer for the Colts and if he can get them one win, which could result in a playoff berth, let the man play.

Sit him down

Like I stated before, the Colts sit dead last in their division. The teams above them look like teams that can become legit contenders, which is something the Colts simply aren't. The Colts just lost to the Titans on Monday night, allowing Marcus Mariota to carve up the defense. The Colts simply can't compete with any of the teams in their division, as they simply lack the talent to be a worthy foe. There is no reason to put Andrew Luck in a game if you don't have the talent around him to help him win.

The offensive line is beyond pathetic. If they put Luck in the game even when he is healthy, he will be subjected to big hits that might lead to him reinjuring his shoulder. That cortisone shot he received on Wednesday should be a signal that Luck isn't ready to play and the Colts should shut down their $140 million investment for the entire season.

The Colts are in a tough spot with Luck, as they don't want to sit him out for the season with the thinking that they could possibly make the playoffs, but they know their o-line has issues and they have a lack of talent around Luck. Luck's season has been complicated, but if he does sit out the rest of the season, expect him to come back better than ever next season.
