what's the situation with Chapman at this point--doesn't he have to play this week, or miss out for the rest of the season?

There are people far more expert on this topic than I, but my understanding is that he doesn't have to play. The Colts just have to determine whether to move him to the active roster this week or IR him. I think.

that is true, Chapman must be moved pretty quickly. doesn't look hopeful because I believe they would have made that move by now. look for word any day and also look for a pickup of someone else if he hasn't healed from his wounds which include a full-blown ACL reconstruct (very painful and brutal recovery time.)

I think they have until the end of today to activate him to the active roster if they want to have a chance to see him play this season. I guess we'll find out for sure later today.

Used to be that once he started practicing with the team, he had to be activated onto the active roster within three weeks or he was lost for the year. Sounds like this must be his third week, huh?

We do not have to play him, we just have to activate him this week. I think that this is a likely move because we are in the hunt for the playoffs and he will definitely help!

no, once activated as an exception from the special IR, he has to play in every game from that point on (if physically able to), and further must clog all the running lanes and be a beast space-eater and make at least 8 tackles a game with 50% of the number of full tackes required to be assists, lastly he must intimidate the opposing center with insults including but not limited to "yo momma" references and "who shur daddy" references.

Go Big Daddy Chap!!!!!

I sooooo hope we activate him. I think the Pats game would be the perfect 'introduction' for him.....let the monster out of the cage, so to speak.

Phil B. said on twitter that expects the Colts to activate him next week. Phil B.could be off on when they have to do it by but that's what he said.

I think they have until the 12th to activate or place on IR. Hope he is activated, can't do anything but help.

CRHughes is correct it is the 13th. Only the evaluators know his progress. If they think he can add or be better than what we have it is a no doubter. If there is some risk to his future they may wait till next year. Some of this may depend on his want to, he is a stud and if he is ready to preform he would be a great addition.

If that's the case, it takes some pressure off of any roster juggling that needs to be done for the Jags game due to all the injuries.

Ok, similar to his run to the championship at Alabama, he can play hurt for us and fortune would have it we should make it to and win the Super Bowl !!!!! Play on Big Daddy Chap!!!!

I think he is going to be active for the Patriots game. I remember reading an interview with Grigson in which he said that Manuski pulled him aside to show him a practice video with Chapman throwing a 320 lb tackle (most likely Hicks) out of the way like a rag doll (paraphrase).

Hicks is a Guard but seems to be the rumor that it was Hicks, not sure if it was confirmed who yet

it was a 345 pound guard on the practice squad, which is Hicks.

Hope he gets activated, this is not someone I would throw away unless he has some serious issues.

That's right, I forgot the exact sentence but I remember checking the practice squad for the match out of curiosity as soon as I read that. I tried to locate the article but I could not find it.

Anyway, I get the sense that Chapman's debut is one of the most anticipated for a Colts player in a long time probably because of the myth of this huge guy in the middle as a solution to all the run stopping problems.

Cool, the good news is that we may get to see what Grigson said in an actual game.

There's no downside to activating him. We've got street FA DLs sitting on our active roster (Tevaseau, Geathers, Guy). Cut one of those dudes, and he can probably be picked up again if injuries hit...

All these positive vibes remind me of the days "Goose" anchored the middle of our D line.

A shame Hicks was picked up since he was our only healthy Guard, best of luck to him in Dramaville

Unless he's not ready to play yet and the other guys can play. With that said when they are ready to active him I would guess Geathers might be the odd man out even though he's a DE he was inactive on Sunday vs. Miami and with Moala and Redding healthy plus Nevis and Guy also on the roster there isn't really much of a need for him anymore.

I'd rather save him for next year if the alternative is rushing him back before he's ready. Why would you want to risk the career of a potential franchise NT just for one season? We have to get over this urge for instant gratification all the time. I'd love to see him play this year, but let the man come back when he's ready.

    • Dungy & Harrison HoF per Jim Irsay
      Dungy definitely deserved his induction based on merit.  The only real knock on him is despite all of that success only one ring and of course people expected the Colts defense to be better.  But the problem with the Colts, minus Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis, most of the Colts payroll went to the offense.  Also, the Colts defense didn't give up a lot of points under Dungy, the bend don't break defense worked for the most part.  The Colts defense in the playoffs leading up to their Super Bowl victory is what got them there, especially in the Ravens game where the offense wasn't effective.     Looking back, I think Dungy was underappreciated here, at least until we had to deal with Caldwell and even Pagano.  Dungy was a much more intelligent coach than either of them and I like Pagano.  I don't ever remember him losing a challenge.  He knew the game like the back of his hand and much more often than not made the right decisions in games.  He was also very good at making adjustments at halftime.  How many times were the Colts getting beat down in the first half, only to come back and win?  A lot, and yeah Manning was a big part of that, but so was Dungy. 
    • Here ya go. Only QB to do this.
      I think they may cut Ware in order to sign Brock, Jackson, Trevathan, and Miller (whether he's tagged or not its still gonna cost) So my point is. Ware's older, but still very good. Good enough to put up 10 sacks or more the next 2-3 years. He would be a really nice signing. We have to fix the pass rush. Signing Ware and drafting Spence at 18 would most definitely fix it. Spence, Ware, and Mathis baby!!!! Grigson watched the playoffs. He knows how important having a dominant pass rush is. It will be addressed in the coming months.

      Deion Sanders kills me sometimes though. He acts like we don't remember him spraying that reporter in the face with that champagne bottle years ago.

      If they tag Miller they may not afford brock
    • Cam Newton walks out of post SB interview
      I don't blame him. I'm not going to act like I am some superior to him - it's his life and he can do what he wants with it. I'm also not going to pretend that I would act "professional" after getting as close as you can be to achieving the goal you have spent the better part of your life striving for, only to fall short. It's devastating.    Also, stop throwing around a "role model" to kids as some reasoning that he should act differently. Just because some people place others on a pedestal and worship them, doesn't mean that they have any sort of standard to live up to. That is your problem if you are worshiping people. Everyone has flaws. You can't just decide that people don't just because you idolize them. Look no further than Bill Cosby for a great example.
