NFL roundup: Andrew Luck will not practice this week


The Indianapolis Colts will be without Andrew Luck once again in Week 4 of the NFL season, as the quarterback will not practice this week.

After Week 4, the Indianapolis Colts will already be through a quarter of their 2017 NFL schedule. It will also mark the fourth game without starting quarterback Andrew Luck, who continues to battle back from offseason shoulder surgery. Luck will not practice this week for the Colts, which rules him out for the team’s Week 4 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.

One star player who will be back is Green Bay Packers wideout Randall Cobb, who was injured during the team’s loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 2. Cobb has been dealing with a chest injury, but he plans to play against the Chicago Bears on Thursday night. The Packers are off to a 2-1 start this season and are one of three NFC North teams currently sitting with that record.

Alejandro Villanueva was the only Pittsburgh Steelers player to stand for the National Anthem this past Sunday, just prior to his team’s bad loss to the Chicago Bears. The gesture has made him a bit of a hero among people, and his jersey sales are currently skyrocketing. Instead of benefiting from the sales, the former Captain in the U.S. Army will donate the proceed to U.S. Veterans.

Sam Bradford injured his knee on a non-contact play and has yet to get back onto the field for the Minnesota Vikings since. In fact, he may be out again this week, as he has yet to practice with the team in preparation for their game against the Detroit Lions. Case Keenum played very well in relief of Bradford last weekend, tossing three touchdowns against a very good Tampa Bay Buccaneers team.

Justin Timberlake has performed at halftime of the Super Bowl before, as he was a part of the infamous “wardrobe malfunction” back in 2004. Well, 13 years later, and it looks like J.T. will once again be apart of one of the bigger events in the world. Timberlake is finalizing a deal to perform at halftime of Super Bowl LII, which will be played on February 4, 2018, inside U.S. Bank Stadium.
