Colts Expect Andrew Luck to Be Ready for 2018 Season

Published

on

After an extended time without franchise quarterback Andrew Luck, the Indianapolis Colts are full speed ahead on plans for him in 2018. Colts coach Frank Reich said on Wednesday that the plan is for Luck to play against the Seahawks in the first preseason game of the summer. Luck missed all of last year with a right shoulder injury.

Luck is a supremely talented NFL QB, and he has proven capable of lifting a Colts team from the basement of the AFC South to the penthouse. The idea of him coming back and being what he once was is filled with question marks. However, it’ll be good to just see Luck back on the field and actually throwing passes.

Luck hasn’t played in a game in 19 months. That’s 19 months of worrying, wondering and not knowing. Nineteen months of not throwing to T.Y. Hilton and Jack Doyle. Nineteen months of not asking his shoulder to bear the load it’s about to.

Luck will have “no restrictions” on him during practice, according to General Manager Chris Ballard.

“I still think we’ll get questions until he lines up and plays again, and plays high-level football again,” Ballard said. “I can just see the panic the first time he throws an interception. It’s just part of what we do. He understands it. He gets it.”

Houston Texans: live stream, NFL Previews and Predictions

Ryan Griffin

Houston Texans comes off a year to forget when injuries robbed them of any chance to compete. After a 4-12 season, they entered the 2018 draft without a pick in either of the first two rounds, the result of maneuvering to land Deshaun Watson.

But the offseason wasn’t a total loss. The Texans are excited about two tight ends they drafted. Ryan Griffin, a 2017 draftee, showed enough last year to be considered the starter, but rookie Jordan Thomas at 6’ 6” and 267 pounds is an intriguing prospect.

GM Brian Gaines landed safety Tyrann Mathieu and cornerback Alvin Coleman early in free agency. With JJ Watt among the Texan defenders returning healthy, the defensive backfield should be more than adequate for the Texans.

The Texans also claimed wide receiver Sammie Coates off waivers. Along with several exciting rookies, coach Bill O’Brien is reveling in the quality of his wide receiver group. Of course, DeAndre Hopkins at the head of that group lifts the bar significantly.

Alfred Blue may have a role backing up Lamar Miller at running back. The Texans are unsure if second-year runner D’Onta Foreman will make it back for opening day.

The key to Houston’s season is the healing knee of their quarterback, Watson. Houston’s backups are on par with their recent quarterback options. Watson is not perfect, but his strong arm and mobility offer the best chance for Houston to field a competent offense.

2018 Texans Prediction:

Houston can’t possibly have as jinxed a season as last year’s injury-plagued fiasco. Coach O’Brien has done a lot with some mediocre rosters. This year, he has a variety of better options if they remain healthy.

Watson might not be the running threat we saw last season. With a healthy defense, He is still enough to lead the team to a playoff spot. Houston is a wild card team at 10-6.

Andre Russell 100 off 40 balls

Ali Khan celebration was too much when their team gets three-wickets inside the first three overs. At that position, Jamaica Tallawahs were 15 runs in the board for 3 wickets. Dwayne Bravo moves his fielder here and there in every bowl and his plan was nearly working before Andre Russell’s 40-ball hundred.

We saw a similar situation in Bangladesh vs Westendies match especially in the last t20 where Russell’s scored 47 runs for only 21 balls he faces. He had struck six over sixes on his short innings and a four in his 21-ball 47 before the umpires took the players off. Until he was in wicket Westendies was in great chance although it was required 17 balls to 50 runs. And finally, with rain getting heavier. The play was eventually called off 25 minutes later.

Andre Russell 100 off 40 balls

Russell is really in great touch for the last couple of years for league matches including IPL, BPL, and Carabian t20 league matches because his international T20 average is far below only 16.50.

Today again he was outstanding and scored Andre Russell 121* where his century cames only for 40 deliveries. Today he gets is first CPL Harticks and went onto a 40-ball hundred – that is the fastest in the CPL – in a record chase as Tallawahs won with three balls to spare.

He took 34 balls to reach a half-century and took his quick century in CPL for the next 10 balls he faces. He brought up his century with the help of his 12th sixes. Nowadays he tries to hit the ball over not for four. Likes to play for six, not for four runs.

Lewis 51, also contributed to winning the match today against Trinbago Knight Riders. They batted first and scored 223 for 6 wickets where colin Munro took 61 runs and his countryman McCullum took 56. Russell played an all-around performance of 3-38 with harticks and a big century of 121. Finally, Jamaica Tallawahs won the 120 ball match by four wickets in hand.

Final Score :

Jamaica Tallawahs won the match, 225 for 6 (Andre Russell 121*, Lewis 51, Ali Khan 3-24).  Trinbago Knight Riders were batted first and scored 223 for 6 (Munro 61, McCullum 56, Russell 3-38) by four wickets.

NFL Previews and Predictions: Tennessee Titans

Published

Malcolm Butler

Tennessee loves their Titans football team. If we only read their local and fan-based news sites, we’d be convinced Tennessee is on the precipice of a Super Bowl run.

Last season’s surprising 9-7 regular season record and their come-from-behind Wild Card victory over the Kansas City Chiefs gives fans reason to be optimistic.

The team signed some good free agents and made the most of their four draft picks. They addressed their suspect pass defense by signing cornerbacks Malcolm Butler and Logan Ryan. Each had an interception in the first day of training camp. The team traded up to land two solid linebackers in the draft.

Malcolm Butler

Offensively, former Patriot running back Dion Lewis comes in to provide a change of pace behind the young star, Derrick Henry. Third-year wide receiver Tajae Sharp returns from a foot fracture that cost him his 2017 season. The Titans’ pair of 2017 draft picks, Corey Davis and Taywan Taylor are out to prove they can do more than they did as rookies. Reliable Rishard Matthews is the lone veteran receiver.

Marcus Mariota enters the season healthier than he was at any point last season. Will that be enough to lift the Titans, in a new offensive scheme under coach Mike Vrabel, to new heights with a trio of unproven wide receivers and a nondescript, even if steady, veteran?

Tennessee had one of the top offenses last season with all of those pieces under-utilized or under-performing in a predictable offense.

2018 Tennessee Titans Prediction

Tennessee’s schedule is loaded with teams we can’t be sure about in 2018. Will Deshaun Watson make the Texans a powerhouse? Will Andrew Luck be on the field? Will the Bills, Raiders, and Giants adjust to big changes?

We feel most of those teams will provide surprisingly stiff competition. Tennessee takes a step back amid changes of their own and finishes 7-9.
