When he let go of trying to contain his excitement, the pressure was released.

"It's a preseason game, I'm not going to blow anything out of proportion, but it's still a game, a chance to go up against another color jersey. It was a fun step along the way."

It had been nearly 600 days since Luck was last on the field, when he threw for 321 yards in a 24-20 win over Jacksonville on Jan. 1, 2017. For one night, Luck looked like his pre-surgery form.

"He just kept saying how excited he was and right before he went out he said 'There's a lot of emotions right now let's see if I can control them,'" Indianapolis coach Frank Reich said. "It was almost like he was saying, 'I'm going to need to control how I'm feeling, because I'm pretty jacked up.' And he came out in the first drive and handled it like we expected."

Adam Vinatieri made field goals of 33, 51 and 45 yards in the first half, and Michael Badgley's 34-yarder late in the third quarter gave Indianapolis a 12-10 lead. Phillip Walker added a 10-yard TD pass to Darrell Daniels early in the fourth quarter.

Luck's counterpart from the 2012 draft, Russell Wilson, played one series for Seattle. Wilson was 4 of 5 for 43 yards and capped his only drive with a 5-yard touchdown pass to tight end Nick Vannett. It was Wilson's first action playing in the offense of new coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, which will be heavily tilted toward the run. Second-year running back Chris Carson averaged 6.5 yards per carry in limited action.

Posted Dec 8, 2013. Andrew Pentis Associate Digital Editor 49ers.com @AndrewPentis. a. San Francisco kicker Phil Dawson made his franchise-record 20th straight field goal with 31 seconds left, as the 49ers topped the visiting Seahawks , 19 - 17 .

Seattle's defense scored with 3:15 left when an errant snap was recovered by Joey Ivie for a touchdown.


Three Seattle players ran into the team's locker room prior to the national anthem.

Defensive linemen Branden Jackson and Quinton Jefferson, and offensive lineman Duane Brown left the field following team introductions and before the start of the anthem. They returned to the sideline immediately after it concluded. All three were among a group of Seattle players that sat during the anthem last season.

Brown and Jefferson said they intend to continue the action all season.

"The team was aware of everyone's emotions and feelings going forward and we're all supportive of each other," Brown said.

There were no other actions by either Seattle or Indianapolis players during the performance of the anthem.


Indianapolis safety Shamarko Thomas was ejected late in the fourth quarter after a helmet-to-helmet hit on Seattle wide receiver David Moore.


Seattle rookie linebacker Shaquem Griffin was all over the field in his debut. Griffin led Seattle with nine tackles, flashing the speed that made him a star in college. But he was also bullied on one play when Indianapolis tight end Jack Doyle used his size to create separation from Griffin on contact and made a 9-yard reception from Luck.

Protecting Luck becomes premium under Colts new regime

  Protecting Luck becomes premium under Colts new regime The Indianapolis Colts invested heavily in Andrew Luck's protection plan during the offseason. Now it's time to see the payoff.After general manager Chris Ballard added two potential starting offensive linemen in free agency and used two more in the draft, the Colts believe they've finally solved their most glaring need - keeping Luck upright and healthy.''When Chris and I sat down in the beginning and said how are we building this team, we are building it from the inside out. That all starts with the offensive line,'' coach Frank Reich said.

The Seahawks regained the lead 19 - 17 at halftime and appeared to be in good shape after two quick field goals in the third quarter. But after taking a 25-17 lead, Luck rallied the Colts again and this time, he made sure Wilson & Co. got to watch it all from the sideline.

"It felt good to kind of get out there and get your feet wet and kind of get some hits in," Griffin said. "I know the way the league works you don't really get a chance to really tackle too much so to kind of get out there and get a few tackles in."


The most significant injury was Mack leaving late in the first quarter with a hamstring issue. Mack had four carries and two receptions in the first quarter. He wasn't likely to get much more action, but is still a concern going forward. Indianapolis coach Frank Reich didn't have any more of an update postgame.

Seattle backup offensive tackle Isaiah Battle limped off the field with a sprained knee in the third quarter, but Seattle coach Pete Carroll said it didn't appear severe. Battle had been gaining on Germain Ifedi for the starting right tackle spot. Rookie tackle Jamarco Jones also had to be carted off in the fourth quarter after injuring his left ankle. Carroll said X-rays were negative but it was a significant sprain.

Indianapolis also lost wide receivers James Wright and Deon Cain to knee injuries during the game.
