LONDON — NFL games will be played at Wembley Stadium on three consecutive weekends for the first time because the new stadium being built for English Premier League club Tottenham won’t be ready.

Tottenham said Monday that it would be unable to host the Seattle Seahawks and Oakland Raiders on Oct. 14 due to “issues with the critical safety systems” at the 62,000-seat stadium in the final stages of construction.

“We appreciate the support our partner the NFL has shown since the extent of this issue became evident today,” Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy said Monday.

The teams won’t have to adjust plans significantly because Wembley, English soccer’s national stadium, is only 12 miles across north London from Tottenham.

Wembley will also stage the Oct. 21 game between the Tennessee Titans and the Los Angeles Chargers, and the meeting between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Jacksonville Jaguars a week later.

Tottenham’s new stadium, which is built on the site of the now-demolished White Hart Lane stadium, was designed as much for soccer as American football. The grass soccer pitch can be retracted and kept under lights below the stands when the artificial surface is required for the NFL. The dressing rooms can also cope with NFL teams without adjustments.

The NFL won’t say if the 10-year contract at Tottenham only officially starts when the stadium is ready to stage games.

“We totally understand the issue,” Mark Waller, the NFL’s executive vice president of international, said. “We shall continue to work with them towards making our future games at Spurs a huge success. The new stadium will be an amazing venue for the NFL and we are very excited about our long-term partnership with Tottenham Hotspur.”

Tottenham has been forced to continue playing home games at Wembley after its new home wasn’t ready for this month’s Premier League season start.

“Urgent follow-up meetings with (construction firm) Mace and the trade contractors are now taking place,” the club said in a statement. “We are reviewing the situation and planned timetable to rectify and re-test, after which we shall be in a better position to outline a revised timetable.”

Tottenham has postponed test events that were planned for Aug. 27 and Sept. 1. They are yet to be rescheduled so local authorities can decide whether to grant the stadium with a safety certificate.

Tottenham will now have to play at least three home league games at Wembley. The club said the venue for home games in the Champions League group stage, which starts in September, will have to be “determined following discussions” with tournament organizer UEFA.

“At the start of the project we asked for your support during what we knew would be a complex and challenging build and now we ask for your continued patience and forbearance,” Levy said in a message to fans.

WESTFIELD, Ind. — The past 19 months for Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck have consisted of right shoulder surgery, a cortisone shot, a failed comeback attempt, a trip to the Netherlands for rehab, throwing a college-size football, and a lot of mental and physical frustration.

And there were times during that stretch where Luck wasn’t sure he would reach the point of even playing in Thursday’s preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks.

“There were one or two moments where I wondered if I am ever going to be able to do this again,” Luck said Tuesday. “Certainly this (preseason opener at Seattle on Thursday) isn’t what I’ve been working toward the whole time, but sort of in the same vein it is another step in this journey and one that is sort of about the next one right now. That’s really exciting and that’s fun.”

Luck, who hasn’t played in a game since Week 17 of the 2016 season, could play as much as one quarter against the Seahawks depending on how the game is going.

“Rhythm, get the ball out,” coach Frank Reich said about what he expects from Luck. “Feeling that juice again, getting amped up and all the adrenaline that comes and controlling that on game day.”

The script for Luck’s return couldn’t have gone much better so far. He’s been a full participant in nine of the team’s 11 practices. He did everything except throw in the two practices he wasn’t a full participant in, and those practices were pre-planned before the start of training camp.

“Every day I feel a little bit better about my technique in team drills,” Luck said. “Sometimes it’s pretty obvious. Sometimes it’s not and I also feel better. I feel stronger, I feel more fit. I feel like my arm has more in it, and a little more in it, and a little more in it. Certainly feeling more comfortable with the offense. Been a lot of positive things and I know trying to take the attitude of just get better every day and I know our team is taking that attitude … I do feel like I’m a little bit more patient with myself, which in turn has made me patient with others.”

Luck’s demeanor has been completely different in training camp than it’s been over the past year. He’s always upbeat on the practice field, on the sideline when supporting his teammates, and even with the media after having more a subdued attitude last season. The change is understandable, because this is the healthiest he’s been since entering training camp in 2015. Luck has missed 26 games over the past three seasons.

“I probably struggle hiding how I feel at times,” he said. “Whether that’s a positive or negative thing, whatever. I think I’m happier with myself. The crux of the matter (is that) I think that really allows me to enjoy football and it does feel like a game to me instead of a job or a profession. I don’t want to ever lose that feeling. I sort of get it when you hear guys in their late 30s and 40s, and they’re talking about it’s like playing a kid’s game. I think I semi-understand what they feel in their hearts now.”

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos open training camp on July 28 at the UC Health Center in Englewood, Colorado. Here’s a closer look at the Broncos’ camp:

Top storyline: The Broncos’ ability to rebound from last season’s 5-11 finish will hinge on two questions: Is quarterback Case Keenum the solution, and has the team done enough on defense to take full advantage of Von Miller in his prime? Keenum was the centerpiece of the Broncos’ work in free agency, and the team’s decision-makers believe his career-best season with the Vikings last year (3,547 passing yards and 22 touchdowns) will not be an anomaly. On defense, first-round pick Bradley Chubb has the potential to be the kind of pass-rusher who can absorb some of the almost constant attention offenses direct at Miller.

QB depth chart: From the moment Broncos general manager John Elway announced Keenum was the team’s “top choice” among the available quarterbacks in free agency, Keenum has been the starter. That leaves any intrigue at the position, for the first time since Peyton Manning’s retirement, with the No. 2 spot. Paxton Lynch is a former first-round pick who lost back-to-back training camp battles with Trevor Siemian. He now finds himself trying to fight off Chad Kelly for the No. 2 job. Kelly was the final pick of the 2017 draft and spent his rookie season on injured reserve. And if the Broncos don’t see everything they need to from Lynch and Kelly, there is always a possibility they bring in someone with more experience at some point.

Bubble watch: Wide receiver, where the Broncos have used four combined picks in the past two drafts, is suddenly a crowded position. Rookies Courtland Sutton and DaeSean Hamilton can work themselves into backup roles behind Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders if they keep their offseason momentum. Jordan Taylor’s work in the return game as well as his reliable hands on offense makes five receivers. That could put either Carlos Henderson or Isaiah McKenzie — both 2017 draft picks — on the roster bubble.

This rookie could start: Not could — will start. And that’s outside linebacker Bradley Chubb. The Broncos have big plans for Chubb, who was the No. 5 overall pick in this past April’s draft. Chubb was already trending toward the starting lineup with his combination of size, athleticism and technique before Shane Ray continued to seek medical opinions about his injured wrist.

Rookie rebound: After back-to-back rookie classes that had minimal impact, the Broncos are poised to see several first-year players carve out significant roles in the season to come. Start with Chubb, Sutton, Hamilton and running back Royce Freeman, all of whom were either working with the starters or the second team regularly during the Broncos’ organized team activities and minicamp. Freeman, a 239-pound back with 4.5 speed, has shown quality vision and footwork during non-contact work. If that form holds true during training camp and the preseason, he will push Devontae Booker to be the team’s lead back. Freeman has also shown quality hands in the passing game, so he has the potential to get playing time on third down and other longer-yardage situations. Linebacker Josey Jewell is another player in the team’s rookie class who could carve out some playing time.

Big shoes to fill: Few players, other than Keenum of course, will carry more pressure to replace a starter from last season than Bradley Roby. A big reason the Broncos traded Aqib Talib to the Los Angeles Rams in the offseason was they believed Roby was ready to move from defensive regular to full-time starter. Or as cornerback Chris Harris Jr. put it “the difference between 600 plays and a thousand plays … it’s what you do on those other 400 that will show if you’re ready for that.” Talib was named to four Pro Bowls during his four seasons with the Broncos and often found himself locked up on the opposition’s best receiver, especially if it was one of the bigger wideouts in the league. Roby has been an opportunistic playmaker — he has three career touchdowns off turnovers — but now has to be a consistent presence in a defense that expects to be one of the league’s best.
