Good, rest them for the important game 2 weeks from now.

AQ and Justice out too, that probably spells 3 quarters at most for Luck. Don't want this kid to get his head taken off.

Play to win, but it's not looking good. Oh well, onto the playoffs!

No Shipley means Mcglynn at Center probably and No Justice means Linkenbach at RT, Now is the time for Luck to develop that lightening quick delivery!

And also utilize play action way better.Try a faking stretch running play, I think it would work. Exactly as Houston did on the second play against us two weeks ago. Haven't seen enough play action or mixing plays up. As of now, we are way too predictive and it doesn't benefit especially Luck when not given the time to throw the ball.

Where did you see that Shipley and Justice are out? Both practiced full today.

Could be down a WR though, Avery limited yesterday and DNP today.

Going to be a tough task IMO looking at who is banged up and will likely not play, especially on defense.

Just hope everyone comes out alive and at the same time keeping momentum. Would be huge with a win though, rookies tend to be extra vulnerable to decrease through downfalls. And we have a few rookies.  ;)

He needs 3 to break it.

Doable, he had three against us the last game. He's a exciting player, if not for ending the season against the Colts, I would have cheered for him to break it.

Well he got 3 on Luck and he only dropped back to pass, what? 22 times or something? If he's gonna drop back 30+ times then yes it could very well happen.

Agreed. He torched us last time. Absolute beast. And 23 years old. That's just scary.

Do you think the Colts gameplan will be to drop back 30+ times to pass? I mean I understand not laying down for us but, last game of the season & everything locked up, I see Luck handing the ball off a lot.

On the other hand, both Delone Carter and Donald Brown are out, so it would hurt a lot too if Ballard got hurt, and that has been the gameplan all year. So yes, I think we play it to win it, and I don't think Pagano wants our momentum taken away. I could be wrong. Just hope we utilizes play action a little better, that'll give him perhaps a second more for the play to develop.

He dropped back 34 times in the previous game. You said 22 earlier.

 

I agree that Watt could get there, but I'm hoping we run the ball a good amount. I don't care whether he breaks it against us or not, but I would like to see us a) keep him from dominating the game again, and b) win.

This game could get ugly and out of control very, very quickly....

Yeah, I'm a bit nervous too. We can't afford to get hurt, it would kill some momentum heading into the play offs.

Me neither. I easily could have missed it though.

Here's the last I found:

 

Indy Star / Phil B.

 

Only ones definitely out were:

 

DE Cory Redding (shoulder)

RB Delone Carter (foot)

C Samson Satele (ankle)

NT Antonio Johnson (ankle)

 

Connor, Avery and Tommy Z were questionable, but 'not expected to play'.

Wow, people sound like they did before the GB game. We had a banged up Freeney then and not much at CB. If we have the kind of emotion we did in that game I do like our chances. But, if we lose we lose. We are tough to get by at home so we'll see.

You can tell it's Week 17 with glance at injury report. #colts list 14 players, Houston lists 21.
 
Pagano: don't see Andrew Luck wearing down. every player is tired this time of year. You play through it. Luck's arm might be little tired
 
Pagano: Redding has "pretty significant" quad strain, but he should be OK for playoffs.
 
Mike Chappell@mchappell51 Pagano: Redding (quad) should be fine for the playoffs
 
#Colts Pagano: Andrew Luck is no more worn down than anyone else. Everybody's a little tired and nicked up. Sure his arm is a little tired.
 
Pagano at the podium: Carter, AJohnson, Satele, Redding will not play Sunday. Everybody else is game-time decision.

Redding out will be tough for the defense but you know what...next man up!  I still believe that the Colts will find a way to win this game for Chuck.  Nothing about our season has made sense thus far...so pulling this one out should be no biggie...it's only the Texans.   :D

A lot of them will play even if tired or banged up.

 

But, it does sound like Redding CAN'T likely play which is a shame. I have no doubt he likely plays next weekend with his history this season fighting through injuries, but definitely this is a case where if a guy is hurt then sit him. A few others I don't know as much about since I can't find anything in detail on them.

    •   So, you think I made some good choices? 2006CBE asked who I wanted for Harvey -- Rizzo and Bryant were not available. I think Contreras is the best choice. I know Cubs fans like Schwarber but something about his weight bothers me. If Zobrist was under 28, I might have wanted him. If you still had Fowler, that is a guy I might want.   Given what you have, Contreras would be best for us. It won't haopen though. 
    • Right now, maybe half of the top 15 (or so) interior defensive lineman are 6'1 or less and about 300 lbs or less and arm lenght of around 32 inches (Donald, Atkins, Casey, Daniels, Jarrett/Kyle Williams). Only Donald was a day one 1 pick or drafted in the first two rounds. Casey went in the 3rd round. No one else was picked in the top 100. I don't think there is an other position were so many top players share similar trait and most of them were picked late in the draft.   Are teams that afraid of having a small team that they automatically give worse grade for smaller defensive lineman? If Aaron Donald, for example, had Geno Atkins besides him instead of Michael Brockers, would that line be as effective as one would expect just from the player talent level upgrade from Brockers to Atkins or even worse? I mean, Brockers is a good player but Atkins is on another level. And individually these players are great but would they work as well together on the same line? Not sure if it's as much about the size itself as these players can use it to their advantage in quickness and leverage but maybe two dlineman with short arms would create some issues?   Just wondering why so many of them have fallen late in the draft. I understand that some teams want bigger, physical players (like BB, Parcells etc) but what about those teams that had already gotten steals later in the draft with small interior lineman would jump at the chance to select a player who had great tape and showed similar traits as their best defensive player. Like Grady Jarrett in 2015. Both the Bengals and Titans drafted a dlinemen in the 4th, Jarrett went with first pick in the 5th round Bengals pick was actually two picks before Jarrett was taken.   Though the Bengals did take Billings last year and he might be next to Atkins but he was another 4th round pick. And Titans did draft Mike Martin to be their nose tackle a year after taking Casey but he didn't pan out. And I maybe haven't looked at closely enough at bust/success rate for smaller defensive lineman so these guys could be sort of outliers and teams just missed on these guys for other reasons.    
    • Also for retrospect on this list: Dan Marino--Mark Clayton & Jim Kelly--Andre Reed were snubbed.  Can you think of others that should be on here in place of someone else?
    • http://newarena.com/nfl/ranked-the-top-24-qb-wr-duos-of-all-time/7/?amxt=fbdesktop2   11. Peyton Manning/Reggie Wayne: Indianapolis Colts   In the post Marvin Harrison era, Wayne took the torch as being Manning’s go-to target. During his 14-year career with the Colts, Wayne had eight seasons with at least 1,000 yards receiving. He also managed to haul in 82 touchdowns during this time period. Manning’s resume has been chronicled ad nauseam. He is the all-time leader in passing yards (71,940), and is consistently mentioned as one of the best to ever throw a football in the history of the sport.   2. Peyton Manning/Marvin Harrison: Indianapolis Colts   The respective skill-sets of Manning and Harrison worked perfectly with one another. Manning’s unbelievable timing on throws was predicated greatly by Harrison’s ability to separate in coverage. One of the best technical receivers in league history, Harrison’s route-running capabilities led him to become an 8-time Pro Bowler and a 3-time First-team All-Pro. He also led the league in receiving yards twice with Manning under center. 114 of Manning’s 539 touchdowns throws went to Harrison. This statistic is simply mind-boggling — and further validates a top-three standing.   ( Jerry Rice also got mentioned 2 times.  #3 with Steve Young, and #1 with Joe Montana.)

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
