(CNN) — Quarterback Andrew Luck, the first pick in the 2012 NFL draft and a four-time Pro Bowl selection, has told the Indianapolis Colts that he is retiring, ESPN and the NFL said on their websites Saturday night.

Luck held a late-night news conference Saturday to make it official.

CNN has reached out to the Colts and Luck’s agent for comment.

Injuries have kept Luck from playing in the preseason. He was on the Colts’ sideline Saturday in street clothes.

His competitor for the starting sport at quarterback, Jacoby Brissett, also did not play in the Colts’ game Saturday night.
