INDIANAPOLIS -- Andrew Luck's jersey has been sent to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, he's shaved his head and the Indianapolis Colts rookie quarterback is about to play in his first prime-time NFL game.
It's certainly been a memorable week for the former Stanford star.
The No. 12 shirt worn by Luck during Sunday's record-setting game against Miami arrived in Canton, Ohio, on Wednesday and will be displayed in the Hall of Fame's Pro Football Today Gallery.
Luck threw for 433 yards, a single-game rookie record, and tied Peyton Manning as the only quarterbacks in league history to produce four 300-yard games during their rookie season. Luck broke Cam Newton's single-game mark of 432 yards set last year.
The two-time Heisman Trophy runner-up has exceeded two years of hype over his first eight NFL games for the Colts (5-3), who'll play the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday Night Football.
Luck and many of his teammates will sport a new look for Thursday's game.
Luck is among almost three dozen Colts have shaved their heads in a show of support for Colts head coach Chuck Pagano. Kicker Adam Vinatieri and Pro Bowl safety Antoine Bethea are among those with buzz cuts.
Pagano was diagnosed with leukemia on Sept. 26 and was hospitalized until Oct. 21. On Monday, his physician, Dr. Larry Cripe of the Indiana University Simon Cancer Center, said Pagano was in "complete remission."
Luck, the overall No. 1 pick in this year's NFL draft, already has three more wins than Indy did last season with three veteran quarterbacks. Luck also tied the rookie record set by his predecessor, Peyton Manning, for most 300-yard games in a season (four) and is on pace to shatter several other marks.
He has completed 190 of 336 passes for 2,404 yards, with 10 touchdowns and eight interceptions. At this rate, he would shatter Sam Bradford's rookie marks for completions (354) and attempts (590) and Newton's record for yardage (4,051). He also could challenge Manning's rookie record for TD passes (26).
"I wouldn't trade him for anybody in the world," said Colts interim coach Bruce Arians said. "He has made us into a decent offense right now. There are times when we look like a bunch of rookies out there and then there's other times when we play pretty solid. He is the one pretty consistent force. He likes to practice, he loves to learn, he loves to meet and he has an infectious personality. He kind of wills himself on those guys in the huddle so he's brought a lot to it."
