Colts players: Irsay problems won't affect team
For the first time since Jim Irsay's arrest and admittance into a rehab facility, we're hearing from two of the Colts star players.
Quarterback Andrew Luck and punter Pat McAfee were asked about the challenges facing the team owner.
"I don't think it affects us at all. That's front office. That's a lot farther than us. Jim Irsay is a guy who's taking care of all of us and our entire lives. Everything I have, I owe to that guy. I'm hoping he gets the help he needs. The family - Kalen, Carlie, everybody is more than amped to handle the business and it's just wonderful to be a part of," said McAfee.
Luck agreed that Irsay's problems were unlikely to affect the team.
"I don't think it'll have an impact on the team in our day to day operations. We're behind him 100 percent. It's obviously tough. He's been a great owner, personally, since I've been in the league and we'll support him through this," said Luck.
Luck and McAfee, along with other Colts players, were participating in the Change the Play program to encourage Indiana children to stay in shape.
