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

    • The most important factor that distinguishes teams in the playoffs is not just an elite QB or elite D, it is an elite coach, IMO. An elite coach with an elite QB or an elite D can do more damage than just the elite QB or elite D themselves, IMO.   Coaching decisions are so critical with field positioning and using the right personnel and preparation (whether it is for crowd noise, prepared for plays that a team may have run just 4 or 5 times the entire year, for throwing 50 times vs running 50 times, or for going up tempo or slowing down tempo and shrinking the game and possessions, calling a gutsy onside kick, preparing for Hail Mary, even taking a safety for field position etc.)
    • Just wish he would actually read what everyone is posting instead of reading what he wants to see and making outlandish statements. Lol
    • Tough call.   An elite QB can win you allot of regular season games and get you to the playoffs nearly every year.   That gives you a shot and if your "D" can play well in the playoffs, a Superbowl may be in the cards.     An elite "D" can also get you to the playoffs, but not as easily.   Low scoring games can go either way many times.  However, if you make the playoffs, there is a good shot at advancing.   That is assuming that instead of an elite QB, you have a decent one.   Osweiller doesn't make that list.   It's a tough question if you factor in extremes.     Mid 2000's:  Peyton Manning and Indy's defense or Flacco and Baltimore's defense?   Maybe Peyton and Baltimore's defense.   What would Flacco have done with Indy's defense?
    • Alshon Jeffrey would be a good pick up if we weren't already loaded at WR between Hilton, Moncrief, Rogers and dorsett. I see us maybe trying out a couple undrafted guys in training camp though. Couldn't hurt. We wont be seeing Jeffrey in a colts uniform though.
