The Colts went into this season with one of the best young quarterbacks in the league. Andrew Luck had been remarkably effective and durable in his first three seasons in the league, playing all 48 games from 2012-14.
But he’s played just seven games this season, forcing Indy to turn to Matt Hasselbeck and then Charlie Whitehurst. Now both of those veterans are ailing (Hasselbeck is doubtful next week, Whitehurst is on IR), Luck’s status is still uncertain and … well … desperate times call for desperate measures.
Per the Twitter feed of Bob Kravitz, the Colts worked out Josh Freeman — who hasn’t appeared in a regular-season NFL game since that Monday night debacle for the Vikings against the Giants in 2013 — and are likely going to sign him. Stephen Morris, who came into the league in 2014 as an undrafted free agent, is the likely starter. Freeman, assuming he’s signed, could see action if something happens to Morris.
What a country. What a league.
