I heard he handled Samson Satele in practice. Does anyone know if he is playing at all Sunday?

I don't think he has been activated yet. He is practicing under the PUP rules but I don't think they have put him on the active roster. Keep in mind he's a rookie with no camp experience and no OTAs. So even if he has natural talent (which I think he does) it'll take him a little time to get into the flow of things which is why I don't think he will be officially activated till they have too. He might be the answers to our prayers next year or something but I don't think he will be this year. He might make an impact but I don't think he's going to be the superstar some are hoping he will be day one.

@pwilson24: RT @philrichards6: #Colts Arians: On NT Josh Chapman -- not out of question he'd be added to roster next week but probably not be active.

I think, realistically, the earliest chance for him to play meaningful snaps is the New England game since it's coming off a long week's rest. There's a chance we give him a couple snaps vs Jax to get his feet wet.

If he is dressed on Sunday, there should be no reason not not give him some snaps, especially once the game is in the bag (for either team). If it goes down to the wire, then unlikley he plays.

What's your source? I know Satele said good things about him, but I never read that Chapman 'handled' him.

I hope people don't get their expectations up too high about this kid. That's a hard position for a rookie to learn. It took Mount Cody about a season before he was considered effective and he was a higher rated prospect from the same system.

I think Chapman is our future NT, but I don't expect miracles from him if/when he plays this year.

When Pagano speaks of building "the monster", Chapman needs to be the lead monster. Judging from what he was able to do in Bama on one leg, plus his interviews and what the buzz is about him, we have every right to be excited about this guy. Not everyone will admit it, but we all hope(expect) he is more than just a good rotational player. That he is going to be special. I know I do.

I think he may be referring to article about him in the indy star. There is a thread on the forum about it. http://forums.colts....-colts-dt-josh-chapman-realizes-gain-through-pain/

Colts teammates are only now getting their first feel.

Defensive end Cory Redding describes Chapman as having "thighs on his arms."

Center Samson Satele lined up across from Chapman for the first time last week.

"Man is a load, man, and he knows how to move," Satele said. "I don't know how he was in college, but he's pretty darn good out here."

he is practicing under the rule, and he is not practicing at 100 percent. he was told to throttle down his practice effort and that also means he WILL NOT be playing anytime soon. They don't want to rush him back at his current weight, which is VERY large even though he is a VERY LARGE individual sporting arms the size of thighs. PLAY? NO WAY!

I think he has a very good chance of playing against the Jaguars. The coaches are throwing too many hints out to believe otherwise.

We don't need him to be a superstar just a 2 down play who can make an impact

He has not been activated. The Colts have to make a decision next week to moving him to the active roster or sit him for the rest of the season. Not possible for him to play Sunday and I doubt he will play at Jacksonville. New England will be the first real chance.

and that's fine but if you listen to some talk about here I think some have the hope he's going to be the answers to our DT prayers. As a rookie who has had zero camp and zero OTAs, and zero action it's going to a little while for him to get into the flow of things. Chapman might end up being the answer to our prayers down the road but I don't think he will be right away. I would even think that the impact he'll have right away will be a small one and I just don't want to see people going off on what a let down he has been because he didn't meet their unrealistic expectations day one like we have at times with other rookies around here.

I don't know if he handled Satele but he did handle one of our 345lbs guards (someone can figure out which one).

I personally cannot wait til this kid gets on the field. I've been screaming DT for 10+ years and now we may well have a good one that'll be here for awhile.

Chapman will come back when he is ready.

Mookie has done a decent job so far, even though that is not his natural position.

Once Chapman is healthy and ready, he will start

      Barring a big injury or a drug conviction, we're getting nowhere near him.   McCaffrey might fall to us.

      Between the thread title and the OP's first post,  as well as the other posts the question being asked (and reason for the thread) is obvious. 
    • Seen Any Good Movies Lately? Rental Or New Release...Share Your Insights/Reviews Please...
      Did you ever watch a dark romantic comedy that just collapsed or imploded on it's own face? Well, I just did & this epic 2015 disaster is called appropriately "Trainwreck." Hey, look on the bright side, it's known as foreshadowing right? For starters, this 2 hour & 4 minute picture directed by Judd Apatow is too darn long. Second, in the interest of full disclosure, I have never found comedian Amy Schumer funny. I have listened to some of her standup routine & I stare at my watch waiting for an eternity for her to say anything remotely humorous. It's admirable that she tries to address the concerns of women that are full figured with meat on their bones wider than a supermodel toothpick sure. However, she's just not a woman who has ever made me laugh. Plus, Amy's dialog in this flick is too sexually centered in scope with almost nothing else redeeming about her character. Just in case you were wondering, yes Amy is related to NY Senator Chuck Schumer in real life too. Third, Amy's co-star in this film Bill Hader gave a much better performance in "The Skeleton Twins" than this piece of trash. Fourth, director Judd Apatow known for the tremendous TV show 'Freaks & Geeks' completely missed the mark here. The script is too predicable & can be seen from a mile away. Judd you're so much better than crap like this man come on dude seriously.    This flick is like a raunchy version of "When Harry Met Sally" except without the sharp wit of Meg Ryan & Billy Crystal. Only this time, the opposites attract are between a doctor & a writer for a tabloid magazine like Cosmopolitan filled with articles about sports, finding the perfect mate, & favorite sexual positions etc. etc.    Plotline: Amy Townsend [Amy Schumer]  lives in the Big Apple as a writer for a pathetic relationship ship magazine. Hey, since her character's last name is Townsend, does that mean she is the offspring of Who guitarist Pete Townsend? No, but it's the 1st question that popped into my head though. Amy sleeps around a lot & she basically an alcoholic. There's a reason for that. At a young age, she had her father Gordon [Colin Quinn] explain to her & her sibling Kim [Brie Larson] why their parents were breaking up & getting a divorce. Basically, Gordon used a doll analogy to tell his girls that he cheated on their mother, got thrown out the house, & that a committed relationship with 1 other person for a long time was unnatural & should be avoided at all costs.    Because of this misguided pearl of wisdom, Amy went thru a number of 1 night stands like chewing gum. Her sister Kim chose to settle down, buy a house, get married & have a son. All that changed for Amy when she is forced to do a feature magazine article on the sports medicine doctor & flawless surgeon to superstar athletes like Lebron James & Amar'e Stoudemire named Dr. Aaron Conners [Bill Hader]. Thru the course of writing the article, Dr. Conners & Amy do sleep together, but she is petrified because she has never dated such a smart & kind boyfriend before. She starts to feel genuinely happy for the 1st time in her life so Amy decides to sabotage the chemistry they have together by blowing Aaron off to take a call from her editor as he is giving a speech accepting a prestigious award for his charity work as a member of Doctors Without Borders giving life saving medical care to the poor & disadvantaged in war torn countries abroad.    As a result, Amy fights with Aaron wondering why such a sweet, well adjusted guy likes & even claims to love her. They argue throughout the night, which prevents Dr. Conners from being able to carry out a vital knee surgery the next day. They decide to part ways & shortly thereafter Kim sadly informs her sister that their beloved father Gordon has passed away. This earth shattering news forces Amy to stop drinking, refrain from smoking pot anymore, & she gets Dr. Conners feature article spotlighted in a reputable periodical called Vanity Fair. Amy mails a copy of the magazine directed to Aaron's team office for the NY Knicks & this noble gesture prompts Dr. Conners to start seeing Miss Townsend socially again. Amy ultimately wins her man back by doing a cheerleader floor routine on the court at Madison Square Garden. She fails to use a trampoline properly, but it's okay because this athletic blunder cements their romantic relationship permanently.    There is some nice cameo work by Lebron James in this picture. Both he & Bill Hader have some comical brief moments together interacting on & off the basketball court like 2 brothers watching each other's back even though they are not blood relatives perse.    How do I grade "Trainwreck" as a film? The plot had no twists or turns in it, I just don't find Amy Schumer lovable as a character in any way, shape, or form, there were a couple of memorable lines in it that I can't repeat on a PG based family  forum,  & as a completed work there was virtually no depth or lasting gravity here. In addition there is a sex scene with an underaged magazine intern employee that quite frankly didn't need to be seen or acted out at all IMO. Very tasteless. I get why it used as a mechanism to get Amy fired in the storyline, but it was beyond stupid & totally unnecessary for a widespread audience to visualize up close & personal. I was gonna give this picture an F, but since I enjoyed watching LeBron James & Bill Hader toy with 1 another on screen, I will bump my grade up to a D-. Like the title suggests, skip this 'Trainwreck' at any & all costs.
