The Colts Authority:
And so it continues.
The Colts' linebacking core already took a hit when rotational inside linebacker A.J. Edds tore his ACL earlier this offseason.
Now, the linebackers are hit with two more blows.
First, Scott Lutrus joins Edds and G/T Benjamin Ijalana with a season ending ACL tear. Lutrus may or may not have made the team, but any time you lose an asset for the season, especially at a position where one depth player has already been lost, it's concerning.
But the more critical blow is Pat Angerer's injury: a fractured bone in his foot. Angerer will require surgery and likely miss about six weeks, including the three or four weeks of the regular season.
Angerer is a quickly developing player, and one that I, and many Colts fans, had high hopes for this season. He is a key cog in the transition to a 3-4, and will be sorely missed for the first few weeks of the regular season.
Jerrell Freeman, Moise Fokou, Greg Lloyd, and Mario Harvey will all be in contention f...

AROUND THE WEB
Colts linebacker Pat Angerer could miss six weeks after fracturing a foot during the preseason opener.
Coach Chuck Pagano made the announcement during a conference call with reporters Monday. Pagano did not say which foot was injured in Sunday's game but Angerer will need surgery and should be back at some point this season. He led the Colts in tackles last year with 146.
Colts linebacker Pat Angerer broke his foot in Sunday's preseason opener and will require surgery which will forced him to miss the first few games of the regular season.Fantasy Spin:Angerer was fourth in the league with 148 tackles so this will further hurt a rush defense that already gave up 143.9 ypg on the ground last season. Good news if you have a running back with Chicago...
The Colts got Luck in the NFL draft, and on Sunday's first offensive play, they got lucky again.
Andrew Luck , the No. 1 pick in April's draft, hooked up with Donald Brown on a 63-yard TD pass - his first NFL throw.
No, it wasn't exactly a textbook pass play. Luck, in the face of pressure, dumped the ball off to Brown, who started up the field, cut from left to right...
Historic beginning!!!!!!!!!!!!! The legend has begun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!—

How is this for creepiness?
The first play of Andrew Luck’s career was a 63-yard touchdown pass to running back Donald Brown on a screen play during Sunday’s 38-3 shellacking of the St. Louis Rams.
Fourteen years ago, Peyton Manning also completed the first...

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Andrew Luck started his NFL career just like Peyton Manning -- with a long touchdown pass on his first throw.
Then he one-upped his predecessor by winning his first NFL preseason game, 38-3 over St. Louis.
It was a perfect opening day for Luck and the Colts (No. 32 in the AP Pro32).
Indianapolis's coaches wanted this year's No. 1 overall draft pick...
There's good news, and there's bad news for Colts fans. The good news is that Andrew Luck looked nothing short of impressive in his first start for his new team. The bad news is he looked great against the St. Louis Rams.
Luck's numbers were impressive. He started the game by tossing a 63 yard touchdown pass, and he finished 10 of 16 for 188 yards and 2 touchdowns...
The Indianapolis Colts lit up the St. Louis Rams Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium with a 38-3 victory, but…
Andrew Luck looked great as well, hitting on 10 of 16 passes for 188 yards and two touchdowns, but…
The new defense, shaky at first, stiffened up and made some plays, but…
Well, if you’re any kind of football fan, the “but” here should be perfectly obvious...

The real deal
Andrew Luck. Yes, he is as good as everyone said he was. And even better. I can only come up with, perhaps 4 teams that WOULDN’T, in a heartbeat, trade their QB for Luck, right now. And another 4 that would give it serious thought. He might not (yet) have the weapons around...
