just saw this on rotoworld..

Delone Carter - RB - Colts

The Colts declined to update the status of RB Delone Carter (ankle) Monday.

Carter appeared to sprain his ankle during the third quarter of last week's win over the Titans. With Donald Brown (ankle) also sidelined, Vick Ballard is the only healthy member of the Colts' backfield. He racked up 20 touches for 104 yards against the Titans and had a one-yard touchdown plunge vultured by Carter.

Is Evans still available if we need him for depth? I haven't been able to see if anyone picked him up for their PS

I saw that

I guess they suspended him for his displeasure over playing time.

We could do worse then having an angry 6'4" 260lb RB

Haven't seen any updates yet, but I have a good feeling Donald Brown will play on Sunday. It's been almost regular this season for him to play one game, and then be out the next one.

An excerpt from this column....if accurate....provides the backdrop of Jacobs' situation.....

http://sports.yahoo....31217--nfl.html

According to Mike Garafolo of USA Today Sports, who provided blanket coverage of the Giants for many seasons, the only team that Jacobs is currently willing to play for is the Giants. By placing Jacobs on their suspended list for the rest of the season, the 49ers have blocked such a move until the 2013 offseason. Jacobs, however, is planning to file an appeal to either be reinstated, receive his remaining pay or his release."

Unfortunately....it sounds complicated enough to where I don't think it'll happen, or certainly cannot happen in enough time to help us this week.

The decision should be made today

Arvester(sp) may get some playing time

I'd be interested to see what Alvester looks like. For some reason Grigson consistently brings him back instead of totally getting rid of him like some of the other practice squad projects. I haven't got to see a great deal of film on him, but I do know he's about a 4.3 to 4.4 speed guy. We'll see I guess.

I think Jacobs was hoping the 49ers would cut him, thinking the Giants would pick him up. Looking ugly now.

He can't be traded anyway. The deadline has long since passed.

same here ;)

I see what you did there.

I'd be more than happy having Jacobs on the Colts!

You're right....and if they did release him the Giants would probably grab him with Andre Brown on IR.

Crap.

Here's a summary for Alvseter:

"Adequate-sized, lean and narrow-framed, Alexander is a linear, upright runner with good timed speed and good hands out of the backfield (see Weber State, San Diego State). Lacks wiggle to make people miss and his run strength is just average. Not a physical blocker and career production is not special — generally gains what is blocked. Could have used another year of development, but left school early to help his family."

The "generally gains what is blocked" quote doesn't bode we'll, not with our line.

Anyone have any updates on Brown? I thought he basically just sat out against the Titans as a precaution. Didn't think his injury would keep him out for too long. I like Ballard but Brown is the better back.

I have always been a fan of BJ

Did he throw a autographed helmet to you?

Don't make any plans.... :D

Ha well I'm a bit older, un-fitter and not any wiser then in my glory days and I've never played American Football, can I still play please? :P

I do however have extensive experience of smashing head first into large men trying to break the "gain" line so i probably have some transferable skills. I've never run the 40 dash, or indeed anything in yards but I was a county state champion at the 60 Mtrs if that counts?

Umm what else, oh yeah I have a low center of gravity, so I guess could be like a fat MJD?

I'm willing to play for no fee and I can supply my own underwear and supports.

    • So sorry for your loss.  I like to think James now has the best seats to watch the games along with others who have gone before him.  
    • Denver got lot of compensatory picks but I think they actually lost, considering what could've been. If the cutoffs had been more favorable, if Okung contract would have counted as just 1 yr, 5M deal, they could've gotten   3rd 3rd 4th 7th   Instead, they got   3rd 5th 7th 7th
    • Glad to see the Pacers win last night. It was very much needed with the losing streak and the PG talk. We will make the Playoffs but probably wont do much once there. Lets not kid ourselves though as in the big picture of things the Warriors are going to spank everyone including the Cavs. Cavs will come out of the East but have a less of a chance of beating the Warriors this season than last. Cavs had their 1 year miracle, got a Title for Cleveland but to think they will beat the Warriors 2 years in a row is a stretch. Warriors will have HCA again and they now have Durant to go with the other 3. LeBron is only 3-4 in Finals play as well. He dominates a weal Eastern Conference but against the West his teams are below .500 in the Finals. My money is on the Warriors, LeBron just doesn't have that unbeatable invincible factor that Michael Jordan had being 6-0 in Finals. Jordan is the GOAT and it's not even debatable and Magic ruled the 80's when rough Basketball was aloud. The stuff Draymond Green is doing now, players in the 80's would laugh it off. This generation of players are way too pampered.
    • ALL RBs are luxury picks. One of the most overrated and useless positions, as is Safety. Look at how badly DeMarco Murray flopped after leaving the Cowboys.   I'd even take an elite Kicker or Punter over an elite RB any day.
    •   Thanks for that. I have no problem drafting for need. Actually I lean that way.   But most people here are strongly for drafting BPA, but when they were making selections, the players drafted mostly addressed needs. (Not always but in much of the picks.) Even in the first round, whenever we had to make a concensus pick, we asked ourselves what the team's needs were as opposed to "who the BPA is". So, I just wondered if people truly believed in drafting BPA as opposed to drafting BPA at a position of need.
