    Clark hobbled off the field yesterday. The extent of his injury is not yet known. Sounds like it may be a quad injury since he was "flexing" his leg and came back with a leg wrap (You don't tend to see a player flexing his leg with a hamstring.

    Does look like a quad.

    "Soon" is a funny word in coach speak. Keep in mind the "tweak" in a quad, just like tweak in a hamstring can be a pesky little recurrent problem.

    Whenever I hear the word "soon", I treat it like a command to erase everything preceding it.

    And every time I get a tweak in my quad, it seems to end up in my knees.

    I'd prefer to beat the Colts when they're at full strength, but I'll be just as happy to beat them depleted.

    No you dont Pencil. You beat a team whenever you can. if the trend continues for the Colts this could very well be a down year.

    I would love to see the Titans and the Texans battle for the division and then maybe meet in the playoffs like Houston and Pittsburgh used to.

    That my friends would be awesome.

    No, I don't what? If we beat them and they're not at full strength, people are going to point to that as the reason and we'll hear a bunch of whining excuses. That's why I'd prefer to beat them at full strength.

    But... the point is... beat them. Period.

    Oh this drives me crazy about Texans fans.... Who cares about what other people think. Who cares if the Colts have excuses? Texans fans have led the league in whining excuses for 4 season running.

    If you beat them, you beat them. Injuries happen in the NFL. If the Colts are injured and the Texans win.. GOOD! They should have been healthier. Thats not the Texans fault.

    So we're not supposed to talk about it?

    If it makes you that upset just don't read the thread. It's not that hard.

    I'd want to beat them at full strength, because I think we can, even without Cushing.

    I think we are the best team in the AFC South, I'd like to prove it.

    That's not specific to Texans' fans.

    What you're really saying is that FANS of any sport drive you crazy.

    Dude.

    Deal with it and move along.

    A win against a 100% healthy team counts the same as a win against an injury depleted team.

    If I recall correctly. Indianapolis was good before Dallas Clark got there. Remember, Peyton used to throw to guys like Marcus Pollard. With Peyton at the helm, it's kind of a plug and play deal. He has his own camps with all the WRs and TEs to familiarize himself with them. I doubt playing without Dallas Clark is going to affect much. You want to get the naysayers to believe you, win games and even sweep the Colts. After week one you have two teams from the NFL's beloved NFC East to play in Washington and Dallas. Beat them and then people start to see what you got.

    If Manning is behind whoever they might have at center, they will still be very good and the one to beat in the AFC South.

    At this point, i am unconcerned with who is or isn't playing for the colts b/c honestly, as long as they have manning under center they're going to be tough to beat. Last year we thought we had an advantage b/c their whole starting secondary was on injured reserve & they still beat us.

    /\ seconded.

    Didn't see their game, but sports am was mentioning there was a big drop off in their performance when Manning was done for the night. Colts fans better ride their wave as long as it lasts.
