Richards: Luck is tough

Phil Richards of the Indianapolis Star likes Andrew Luck’s toughness and even points to a few jarring hits he delivered while at Stanford as evidence of his toughness. More importantly, Luck is smart when he runs:

Luck also made his second preseason run. The first produced 9 yards against the St. Louis Rams. His Sunday night dash went for a touchdown.

Both ended in slides, but don’t question the guy’s physical toughness. First, he’s protecting the franchise because he is the franchise. Second, he has nothing to prove.
