I guess McDonald is looking Impressive from what Im reading about it. He looks quick and runs his routes very smoothly and has big hands(10 inches). Uses them to grab balls out the air. Showing good effort on blocking as well.

Wonder why they talked to McDonld?

probably looking for a TE to run 3TE sets like Pep and Luck did at Stanford... I was reading about how Pep expects all of his receivers to be able to block in the run game... just a thought...

They have Weslye Saunders a great blocking tight end they don't need another.

Colts talked to Ej Manuel today. Back-up possibly or probably just doing due dillegence.

Luck took Chandler Harnish to the Pro Bowl with him..   I bet CH is Indy's backup next season.     JMV on 1260 said he has heard for "fact" that DS will not be back.

 

Maybe seeing if Manuel is interested in playing G...  heheh..  he sure ain't no QB...

    • Which one would you like to make the roster saying we keep atleast 5 WR. It's possible we keep 6 but I think it's unlikely we only keep 4. Personally I like Tevaun Smith. I think he gives us a little bit more size and he can play outside better than chester can. I think Chester could be an excellent slot WR for us and a good punt returner however Bray can fill that same role and is proven in returns. I don't think Bray can play outside as well as smith and that's a big part of why i thinks he has an edge.

    • This is the obvious answer.....he just wasn't the right fit for this defense 
    • He could have severely impacted or potentially lost his leg -IF- the ATC had not acted quickly, decisively, and properly in that situation (stabilizing it, calling for paramedics for transport).  Because he did, they only have to worry about knee reconstruction. There's a good chance once swelling subsides and they can surgically repair it, they may also have a ruptured PCL, and possible MCL and LCL damage.  Also, there is concern for cartilage damage as well. The more involved and worse they are will impact recovery time, no doubt.   I'm not sure who reduced the knee dislocation and when (likely the Orthopedic surgeon at the hospital), but nerve and vessel injury has now been ruled out telling me they've determined TB has no numbness in his leg/foot and the pedal pulses can be palpated (felt) at his inner ankle and/or on top of the foot. So those potentially serious issues aren't a problem, from what we are told.   Since no nerve or blood supply problem, reconstruction and rehab is the game.  That depends, as mentioned, on thea mount and extent of ligament damage along with the ACL.  We will not know until they surgeons go in and make the repairs, and then we get an update. Remember TB doesn't have to be as 'recovered' as and Adrian Peterson or Wide Receiver.  and while ACL repair take 6-9 months, dislocated knee without nerve/Atery damage takes 9-12.  So, from my perspective,  TB could possibly be ready if no setbacks, and no nerve or arterial problems occur in recovery.  He's young, and Adrian Peterson, who defied his odds and recovered early, there to encourage him on that road to recovery.  I'm taking the optimistic road (unusual for me) on this one until a report comes out that makes me lower my head, and ultimately alter my timeline.
