Avery and Davis return to practice.

17 posts in this topic

Donnie Avery (concussion) participated in Colts practice Wednesday.

He was likely limited. Avery just went down on Sunday, but the quick clearance means he shouldn't miss a game. That's become a rarity with concussions. With rookie T.Y. Hilton continuing to emerge, however, Hilton will be a weak WR4/5 option against the Bills.

Colts CB Vontae Davis (knee) returned to practice Wednesday.

His exact participation is unclear, but it puts him on track to return against the Bills. Davis last suited up in Week 8. Davis has not played at a high level this season, but the Colts' secondary is amongst the worst in the league without him. His presence has been badly missed.

Geez... Week 8 since Davis played?? Wow, that's a good minute when you look at it. Not that bad, but still Bad

Hope he can stay healthy for the rest of the Season. Somebody has to stick Megatron, & it's not gonna be Vaughn

That is why I feel that the conditional pick for Vontae Davis (6th round, I think) may not be owed since it could be based on playing time. So, we lose a 2nd but not both a 2nd and 6th, I feel.

The injury bug is crazy

Been like that for as long as I can Remember. I blame the injury bug for the release of Bob Sanders, Dallas Clark, & maybe Gary Brackett

I like how our team was healthy for the most part last year, but didn't have the QB to back it up. This year we do and can't keep the same people on the field each week.

Obvious sarcasm is obvious.

Yep. It's a shame when Fans have to sit at Home & just WONDER what their Team looks like COMPLETELY Healthy.

We still don't know if Chapman would be a Starter. We have no idea what we could be when Healthy. smh

Good thing that Fleener & Davis are back. Both guys will be instrumental in winning against Buffalo.

Fleener- The offense can use more of the two TE sets and run the ball against one of the worst run defenses in the league.

Davis- When he is on the field, the QB will usually go for the #2 receiver. Limiting Stevie Johnson will better the chances of winning, also Davis is a good tackler and could stop the outside run.

This is why I just don't think we have the ability to make a run at the playoffs. Teams that can hold it together down the stretch have much deeper rosters than us. We have some talent...but it is very very thin. Hopefully we get healthy at the right time and keep away the injury bug. Look at teams that typically win it all they tend to get healthy and make a run late in the year. Even our SB win in 2006 we got Sanders back and it changed how our defense played...a lot of downhill tackling. A healthy Freeney in the SB in 2009 and that game is different too IMO. We just don't have enough depth to offset a lot of injuries yet. We have played much better than I expected...and a lot of that I think is playing with faith and heart for our sick coach....but against quality opponents...I fear we don't have the fire power on either side of the ball to win. We have the easiest schedule in football...perhaps we can squeeze into a wild card birth but we are probably an 8-8 finish just outside looking in...and then middle first rd pick.

good teams have linebackers that actually make tackles....and know their assignments on defence....and need to be called out by the fans and coaches.

Is Fleener back now? That would be a big boost but I hope he's ready, not worth risking him if he's not.

I have heard reports that he practiced all throughout the week so it is looking good

    • Have you seen Johnny Manziel?
      Ha, if they are just now thinking this then the problem becomes somewhat more obvious...
    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      How well a player moves really cant be measured at the combine and those numbers sure are not indicative of how well a player will produce or how high or low a ceiling he has in the NFL. For instance Shane Ray ran a 7.71 3 cone drill which to me would lead a person think he lacked a bit in his ability to change direction (vital for Linebackers)...But he don't. Combine numbers have a place but they should be taken with a grain of salt. Also its not youtube...and even if it was you can tell a lot but watching games if you know what to look for by doing your own research, Its not like I'm looking at some highlights and not taking into account what scouts and gurus say   We can revisit this in 4 years and see if Clark is starting or even on the team then, Hopefully he will be. I'm rooting for him, But since you like poking fun at how much I watch players and automatically come to the conclusion I have no idea what I'm watching then you don't mind if I come back and say I told you so if he flops (strong possibility given how much he has to learn)
    • The reasons Osweiller chose Houston
      i would take the 10 million dollars over joining the best team in the league even if they were heavy favorites to win the super bowl   as an average fan like you said, i dont care that much about winning the super bowl.  it would be awesome, but not 10 million dollars worth of awesome. that is more than i would make in a life time as an engineering technician in just one year on BOs contract with the texans
    • Have you seen Johnny Manziel?
      lol I wonder what the family is thinking right now. They're like, "WHERE WERE YOU, BOY!? I've got half a mind to beat some sense into you!"
    • Defensive expectation for Indy in 2016
      After giving this some thought, I think the D would be having a much better year if they get to the middle of the pack. I believe this because of the strides made by the other teams in the division. The front 7 depth is improved, given the return of key players; and if the O doesn't put them in big trouble over and over as they did last year, the top 3rd of the league is a possibility. That being said, its awfully early. I think I'll know more after the pads come on.

      Hello my Name is Robin. And i'm from Denmark. even though i've been member on this forum for a long time, and the old one as well. I would like to Introduce myself. I became a Colts fan in 2007, when I watched my first NFL game. My brother introduced me to NFL, the superbowl between Colts & Bears, And as we all know the Bears scored first, so I had to rude for the "underdogs".. and from that day on I was hooked. I've watched every game since, even the primetime games, that starts 2:30 in Denmark, it's a long day working with no sleep but damn its worth it. Can't wait for my next big Colts adventure, when I get to see them playing in London 
    • Member Introductions! (Say Hi!)
      I have been a fan since 1984 when I became an early teen and really started to understand the game. Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984 and eventhough we stunk for a while, things obviously got better. We traded for Dickerson in 1987 and won the Division, then we had Harbaugh's magical season in 1995, the Peyton ERA where winning 12 games was a piece of cake + winning a SB in 2006, now the Andrew ERA where we have already had 3 11 win seasons and a deep Playoff run.
