Default Colts LT and Backup LT Not Playing?

Per Rotoworld:
Quote:
The Indianapolis Star expects LT Charlie Johnson (foot) and LG Tony Ugoh (toe) to both sit out Week 1 against Houston.
Undrafted rookie Jeff Linkenbach would be forced into action on Peyton Manning's blind side. Manning is a must-start every week, but the Colts' front five threatens to be problematic all season. Linkenbach couldn't beat out Kyle DeVan or Jamey Richard to start at guard. Now, he's playing left tackle.
Mario and Barwin need to be licking their chops at this golden opportunity. An undrafted OT going against a pro bowl DE?

Texans [today]

Did Not Participate in Practice
CB Antwaun Molden (ankle)

Limited Participation in Practice
T Duane Brown (hamstring)
TE Owen Daniels (knee)
DE Mario Williams (groin)

Full Participation in Practice
CB Kareem Jackson (eye)
RB Steve Slaton (toe)

Notes: Slaton, who suffered a toe strain in the third preseason game against Dallas, is expected to play on Sunday. Daniels said after practice that his surgically repaired knee feels "really, really good." Molden is being nursed back to full health; he didn't play in the preseason finale.

Hopefully this won't be one of those times where we make a rookie look like an all-pro.

But...but...I thought Texans fans wanted to beat Manning when the Colts are fully staffed and at their best???

This news is music to my ears, though. Exploit that weakness!!

Was this pulled from the HT site? I do not recall seeing an in-week update like this before for any team. As I type this, I recall "reporting of injury updates" being an issue the last couple of years, but do not recall there being any consensus on offering a new policy.

This how Rotoworld TRANLATED the IndyStar...........You could interpret the original somewhat differentlly. Decide for yourselves.

IndyStar:

Quote:
Lastly, for lunch anyway since it's about time to get back to work and we're eating late, center Jeff Saturday said, "I sure hope so, man," when asked if he would play Sunday. He intended to practice. LT Charlie Johnson also planned to work out, but didn't sound as sure about his ability to play Sunday. This suggests he probably won't. It also doesn't sound like T-G Tony Ugoh was going to practice, either, which means he probably won't play, either.

So, while it's early yet, go back to work thinking about undrafted rookie OT Jeff Linkenbach being entrusted with keeping "Super" Mario Williams from hitting Peyton Manning on those blind-side rushes

The Colts spent their 2008 1st round pick to acquire Ugoh. A big whiff.

Of course, the Texans drafted Okoye with the 10th pick of that draft. Hopefully, we won't see the Texans having to admit to a similar failure.

The key to Texans-Colts may be Jeff Linkenbach
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on September 8, 2010 5:33 PM ET

Quote:
While Tom Brady's contract situation has dominated the headlines of late, Peyton Manning is also readying to begin his contract year without a new deal.

And it appears Manning is going to start the season with what could be the shakiest looking protection of his career.

As Florio mentioned earlier, Colts left tackle Charlie Johnson was limited in practice Wednesday. He hasn't fully practiced in a month. Johnson wasn't sure about his ability to play Sunday. The next guy in line, Tony Ugoh, was out of practice completely. He's been out over two weeks.

Phillip B. Wilson of the Indianapolis Star points out that undrafted rookie tackle Jeff Linkenbach is next in line to play left tackle.

Look, we know Johnson and Ugoh aren't that great to begin with. Peyton Manning essentially protects himself by knowing where the defense is coming from and getting rid of the ball quickly.

The Colts are pushing the limits of this replaceable parts theory, though. They may be trusting their franchise, and Manning may be trusting his next deal, on Jeff Linkenbach matching up with Mario Williams.

If ever there was a time for the Texans to get over the hump and beat the Colts, this has to be it.

UPDATE: Ugoh was waived/injured. Didn't see that coming.
