Coming off a great season, Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck recently experienced a setback after suffering a left calf strain. He will be out at least 2 practices. According to Luck, "If I Go Out Here With Pain, I'll Be Average....It's Not Good Enough for This Club."
 
In more injury-related news, Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green suffered an ankle injury during the first practice of the preseason. He underwent surgery on Tuesday and is expected to miss multiple games once the regular season begins.

LeBron James has been getting lots of attention (good and bad) for hamming it up at his son Bronny's AAU summer league. He's clearly having a blast (and so are the kids) dunking and being dunked on.
