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.

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.

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.

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.

    • Funny. my point was that perhaps we have more football access here in the states than the average european viewer.  Therefore it may be different for you and me for example.  I'm sure in britain theres always a soccer match on while here rarely.  Reasons are reasons, stupid to us or not.  I wouldnt fly on a yellow plane either, btw.  I stick to silver-ish aircraft.
    • OK....     let's not sugar coat it....   our o-line, already plagued by injuries and inconsistent play has its biggest challenge of the season so far.   In no specific order....   --- Harrison is out because of emergency appendectomy... --  Reitz still has a bad back, but he traveled. --  Good still has a bad back,  but he traveled. It's not clear if either will be able to play,  but the team is praying they will...   --  Our right side of our line could include Clark,  Blythe and Haeg.        Seriously, not kidding.      If Reitz and Good can't go,  our right side could be manned by two rookies, which, of course, would make for THREE ROOKIES on the line including Kelly.        Honestly,  it would be a disaster if this happens.     So, cross your fingers that Good and Reitz can play and play at a level that doesn't hurt the team.         This is a bad time for this to happen....   but life in the NFL is often not fair....   and this is one of those times....   Oh.....    I got this info from a story on the front page of the website....        http://www.colts.com/news/article-notebook/Colts-Could-Be-Shuffling-Right-Side-Of-Offensive-Line-This-Week/cce551da-a7fb-4a6f-a16b-0850f43a3b04
    • If you're a BPA believer than your argument holds up no matter what our needs are....   But, as to your line I put into bold,  that pass rush, a RB and a CB are all equal needs.....    I don't think that's true at all.      I don't even think it's a little bit true.   I think pass rush,  preferably from the OLB spot,  but pass rush is the clear top priority.     Right now we're one of the worst team rushing the QB in the entire NFL.     And next year,  we'll likely be without Mathis and Cole.   We need a pass rush desperately.   As to RB and CB....    I think those two needs are somewhat closer,  but I would put RB as the next priority because we should still have Davis, Cromartie and Robinson next year.       So, I'm OK with CB as our 3rd need.   But we'll need someone to eventually replace Gore and fortunately this is a fantastic class of RB's and I suspect there will be one there for us in the 50's when I suspect we'll pick in the 2nd round.   And we'll likely have two picks in the 4th round for the loss of Fleener.   Hopefully we'll address our defense and our running game in 2017.

  • Welcome New Members

    • Welcome here Nils!   I can tell you, most of football fans in Hungary are Patriots fans...unfortunately. 
    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
