Colts’ notebook: Andrew Luck battled emotions, then got to work

"I'm obviously not snowboarding anymore, " Luck told NFL.com.

This won't be the last time we see the new rule impact the status of a player during a game, as more ejections and/or fines will surely come throughout the year.

"All the onus is on me to understand", he said. He said he wasn't sure if the quarterback was preparing to "run (him) over". "I don't know what else I'm supposed to do".

The quarterback scrambled on a third-and-7 play. Ryan Grant led the way with a career-high eight catches for 59 yards.
