Feel bad for him, and it's an unfortunate loss for them, but it definitely doesnt hurt our chances on Sunday.
Are the Colts on the verge of being snake bitten?
They just lost an LB (Hagler ?) for the season, right? And wasn't there one earlier as well?
Sanders has a new elbow injury too.
Sucks for them, but they've done pretty well without him so far. I'm interested to see how they protect their rookie CBs. If Hayden is out then that means they'll start a 3rd rounder and a UDFA. Given their injuries in the secondary and the fact that we'll only be suiting up 2 TEs this week I think we'll have a lot of opportunities to slow down their pass rush by spreading out the defense with 4 WR sets. They usually only rush 4 and they're gonna have to dedicate a safety to help whoever is covering AJ. Which means our speed guys JJ and the other Andre have chances to get 1 on 1 coverage against a thin DB lineup!!! Not to mention the possibility of getting Slaton the ball in the flat against a thin secondary.
We have big play potential this week. I wouldn't mind seeing Hill in early to help establish the run game and supply a chip block for whichever OT needs it. But we need to mix it up with multi WR sets to take advantage of the weak secondary once we made them respect our run game. Just imagine if OD was healthy
They protect their rookie CB's the same as they way as they protect Hayden & Jackson - with QB pressure from Freeney & Mathis.
Wow, too bad for them. Wouldn't wish that on anyone.
Hopefully he and Owen have a speedy recovery.
So does that make it Haglar, Gonzo, and Jackson out now? With a new Sanders injury popping up?
I thought Gonzo was returning this week?
I think his knee is still giving him fits. I guess its not confirmed. Says in this thread he is getting a second opinion on his knee:
Interesting, the less weapons for Manning the better. I also read on today's injury report that Bob Sanders has not practiced for the 2nd day in a row. Dont know if the Colts think he's a gametime decision or if they're just being careful. A Sanders-less D with starting rookie CBs would go a long way in helping us get a win in their house!!!
Actually, it's better for the Colts that Jackson does not play.
He was treated like a step child by AJ last year!
No doubt, if Schaub has time... this could be a very interesting game. Not big on players getting injured for any team. But the past couple of days for them hasnt exactly made me shed a tear...especially after last Sunday.
If the Texans cant beat the Colts when they are down 2 Cb's (Hayden,Jackson) and their best S (Sanders) they never will. IMO
Yes sir, Aslong as Manning is playing it will be rough. Like at the Garcon guy,(I think that's how it's spelled) if he was on one of the other 31 teams no one would know who he is.
BTW, 610 said on the way home that Reggie Wayne sat out of practice, but it probably doesn't mean anything.
peyton is all that matters, he's a surgeon that doesn't mind who hands him the tools
I could of sworn we took one in 06'........
Not in Indy
