    Holly Sheet! Just what we need with Payten coming to town. Does anyone know what happened? I didn't hear anything about an injury to Coleman until now. Our season is going down the drain. :thud:

    From my guess, that nagging shoulder injury must have been a tear...otherwise they wouldn't have placed him on the IR.

    This is bad news....

    Marlon McRee is a quality FS and will be capable of filling Coleman's shoes.

    Well, the pass defense can't get any worse. It's time to start giving the young guys some looks.

    This isn't as bad as it might have been earlier in the year. Think about the first few weeks when Dunta was really, really green. McCree is going to be fine back there. At least as "fine" as Coleman would have been with Manning and the Colts touchdown machine coming to town.

    McCree will fill in fine and thats another young player with a high motor coming onto the rostor. The more we can get to play like that the better. I doubt Lord is going to get anything more than special teams play but he did well there during the preseason.

    Man, what a bummer. Hopefully the Colts game won't be as bad as the turmoil in my gut about it.

    I read on espn.com that Jammal Lord was activated from the practice squad to replace Coleman. Another rookie on defense.

    My assumption is that he has one of those injuries that guys play thorugh until it becomes too bad.

    He hurt it in the Packers game when tackling William Henderson. Maybe it didn't show on TV. He stayed down for a while after the hit.

    It kept bothering him the last two weeks and they ordered an MRI on him yesterday.

    Not that I'm happy Coleman got put on the IR, but i like to see backups come in. I forget his name, but the guy that should start for him has been on the practice squad all season long and i think it'd be great if he came out and had a big day kind of how nobodies from other teams come out and have good games against us (Mwelde Moore and the beaten up Titans).

    Thats just the way i look at it, we could have another Ed Reed and not even know about it. Or he could just be some scrub but hopefully thats not the case.

    That would be Jammal Lord. He played QB at Nebraska last year so he's still learning to play the position. He's athletic and had his moments in preseason. He's nowhere close to ready to start but you will see him on special teams.

    McCree will start at FS. He is a capable replacement for Marcus.

    That's bad news. Even if the backup plays good enough another good DB isn't hurting against Mannings offense.

    We've actually been pretty lucky on injuries this year. Until this week anyway.

    You never like to see starters go down but Polk and McCree are capable backups. It's nice having experienced depth for a change.
