    Not that I want to win this way, but the Colts punter has been suspended for a game, but more importantly Dallas "I eat LBs for breakfast" Clark is out for our game.

    Again. Not how I want to win, but considering losing Demeco it evens things a bit

    They still have Collie and Reggie Wayne, who seem to be doing quiet well.


    Anyone heard about Addai's condition? I haven't read anything yet.

    I was wondering about Addai as well. Haven't found anything yet.

    His injury looked kind of serious, even if he plays, I bet he'll be limited.

    I think Donald Brown is supposed to be healthy and Hart is a decent back.

    Dallas Clark is good news...

    but honestly I don't think the Colts will need to use their punter all game :thinking:

    Bye or not, if he's talking about having to "strengthen" his shoulder, it means he's had a significant injury. (The way he fell, it looks like an anterior shoulder dislocation) Even if we do see him after the bye, I would not expect him to be effective.

    Can't add links (on iPhone), but Rotoworld says Addai will play against us.

    He's been in a sling. It does indeed look like a dislocation which commonly is associated with a brachial nerve plexus stretch injury. The brachial nerve plexus injuries take time to allow decent return to strength. Besides this, he has a 50% chance of reinjury.

    Translation: Adai unlikely to play against Texans. Even more unlikely to be effective if he is thrown out there.:tiphat:

    Further simplified translation:

    The brachial nerve plexus is a bundle of nerves that come from between the neck vertebrae and through the armpit and then into the arm and hand where it delivers both sensation and movement and strength to the arm and hand. It's the same nerve group that was injured in Slaton leading to numbness, loss of movement and strength in his arm and hand.

    In Slaton's case, the nerves were injured by crushing of the nerves between the neck vertebrae. In Addai's case, the injury would have been caused by the upper end of the arm popping out of the shoulder socket (dislocation), thus overstretching the nerve as it comes through the armpit. Again, ultimately similar problems from both injuries.

    If they put him out there, I foresee multiple fumbles... :D

    We definitely need to be on the plus side of that... let them march up & down, then fumble inside the 5.

    I would prefer they fumble inside their own 5... repeatedly!

    And once again, you have helped me understand yet another one of my own injuries a little better. I've had my shoulder operated on several times. It remains unfixed alas the power of information is the force that drives the road to redemption. Thank you.

    Them not having a pumter is VERY bad news. Means they'll go for 4th downs. That means they will get 1st downs.

    If number 18 is still playing then we can never take this game lightly.

    Week 8 is our season. Win and everything falls into place. Lose and it all comes crashing down.

    Well not really, but this is a message board, so why not? :worldpeace:

    Thanks Jean!! They boy was in obvious pain when he left the field and I was wondering if it was his shoulder. JA is one of my fav RBs to watch, just to bad he plays for the enemy. Being one of our local guys he never got the media attention VY got, but, he has definitely had a positive career. Doubtful he will be 100% by week 8 though.
