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.

    •       Dang right!  I already have my "Fire BPRoland!!" thread penned, and a twitchy finger on the Submit Reply button...      .   .   .      \     Just caught up on this thread... nice job folks.
    •   Going back to 2013 (because we can't count 2012 on Chuck's resume can we?) in the 1st Qtr the points differential breaks down as:   Positive: 27 Games Even: 11 Games Negative: 26 Games   Surprising... 
    • "Where'd you get it? [A dreamweaver hanging off a Kia Sorento's rear view mirror]. My ex girlfriend. Ex girlfriend? What happened? Was she cramping your style? Did she have too much [emotional] baggage? Did your mom hate her?"    "I'm Coby Bryant. Coby plays basketball. Yeah, I know. I just meant that I was the Coby Bryant of tennis...If you never called it quits [Darren], you could have been as good as Tiger. Tiger Woods plays golf. I know. I just meant like the Tiger Woods of tennis."    "Do you remember when I played with Dash Stevens? He was the worst. You're way better than him [brother]."   "Look at you...You still haven't made a move for her since the Fifth grade...You want me want me to hook you up with that sweet caboose?"    The following quotes are taken from a 2014 comedy that revolves around the sport of tennis. Doubles Men's tennis to be exact called "Break Point" directed by Jay Karas. This 1 hour & 30 minute picture is self explanatory with no real left turns in it that will surprise or astonish you overall. Here, in a nutshell, is the plot: An older brother named Jimmy [Jeremy Sisto] is a wise cracking alcoholic & womanizer who desperately wants to return to the professional tennis circuit. There's only 1 problem: Nobody & I do mean nobody wants to coach or partner with Jimmy on the court. He's burned a lot of bridges. You submit a name & there's a good chance Jimmy screwed them over in some form or fashion. Actually, to be more specific, Jimmy needs to win matches as an amateur in Palm Springs, Florida to even get a shot at competing in the US Open as an unranked player. Hades, Jimmy even did a horrible thing to his younger sibling named Darren [David Walton]. He dumped his doubles partner & teacher for an instructor named Dak Stevens that Darren never saw coming several years ago so there's definitely some bad blood there or at least a huge unresolved grudge anyway.    Darren is in his 30's, divorced, & a substitute teacher in NY City. Did I mention that an 11 yr old student named Barry [Joshua Rush] follows him around like a lost puppy on the cusp of Summer Vacation? What's funny is this kid is always grilling Darren with questions & my first quote at the start of this review is reminiscent of an expert on relationship advice except for the fact that Barry hasn't hit puberty yet. Barry lives with his grandmother since his biological mother can't raise her son or won't due to an addiction problem or she likes to party too much instead of being a responsible parent. Obviously Barry is looking for a father figure mentor in his life & he has chosen Barry to fill that rather large void. Darren reluctantly offers to teach Barry some pointers on tennis every Thursday afternoon. A tall undertaking since Barry's hand eye coordination appears to require considerable work.    Jimmy & Darren's dad is a local animal veterinarian named Jack played by the always believable JK Simmons.  Jack's primary assistant is a pretty blond woman named Heather [Amy Smart]. Darren has always had a serious crush on Heather since he was little growing up in the same neighborhood. He just gets tongue tied around her using any excuse to avoid her. Heather has always had an attraction to Darren as well & she finds his nervousness around her charming & cute. You know the links Darren will go to not get flustered near her like listening to Billy Joel in his car. Stuff like that.    Barry is a good kid who wears loud outfits with flamboyant colors on them. Jimmy, on the other hand, reminds us all of the legendary John McEnroe always complaining with judges & competitors over whether the ball landed in our out. I kept hearing that song by Asia 'Soul Survivor' in my head written about John's unlikely return from a devastating injury in his tennis career.    "...And from the wreckage I will arise
      Cast the ashes back in their eyes
      See the fire, I will defend
      Just keep on burning right to the end."    Basically, we all know what's gonna happen here. Darren & Jimmy show Barry that his mother's erratic behavior isn't his fault, how to stand up for himself, & that some people just can't be saved no matter how much you try to help them or make things right. They, the brothers, don't make the US Open cut, but Darren finally grows a backbone & asks Heather out at match point with her no good, high maintenance boyfriend sitting right next to her. A bold, & yet never before seen jolt of public confidence from Darren that paid off in the end. Sweet.    Break Point is far from sophisticated or even elaborate for that matter. I just liked it because of the 2 brothers & Barry. A motley crew that just works. It's just interesting to see a crass guy, a refined guy, & a naive kid with hardly any world experience hang out together & give 1 another a boost of confidence, self-worth, & testosterone. Let's roll with a B- here.        I like this Joe Walsh/James Gang song "Walk Away" since Jimmy preferred to walk away from responsibility or hard work when obstacles presented themselves until about the last 25 minutes of this flick.     [One of the best drum covers I have ever heard actually really tight.]
