TY wore a boot last week, right?  It's Wednesday, maybe we should wait until Friday to panic.

Howell was hurt during the game last week, this is likely a continuation from that......  could be a BIG issue with Landry likely out.  Also need Bradshaw back to help the run game and to help control the ball.

Lefeged or Sergio?

 My bet is Howell does everything in his power to play......this is the kid's chance.

He's got an low ankle sprain and wearing the boot is precautionary. I expect him to play.

Next man up.

I think we'd be just fine with Lefeged in there -- though I hope this injury isn't serious and Howell can go.

No, but the medical staff taped him after the injury and he played the rest of the game.

Dear Sweet Lord, please tell me this is at least from a game.  I will bring medicine water from the river (by my van) into the practice facility and place it in a stoup at the entrance.  All players please dab into the water and apply to ailing body parts.

Those can end up the worst....playing after being taped up.  In high school I sprained my right ankle badly...taped it up and played...missed the next 4 games because of swelling and hematoma.  Darned I wish I had a boot....

He came to practice wearing the boot, he didn't get hurt in practice.  I'd assume it was from Sunday.

 

Funny, at the start of the season I thought S was our least deep position.  With Landry's history I thought it could be a problem.  Turns out Howell is pretty good, and Lefeged isn't bad.

not this year but next 

Dont get me wrong, I really like the guy but I think he was and is a real long shot to stay healthy for any significant amount of time, especially with 2 knee operations, his style of play just very likely would not ever allow for that to happen

Yea, it's a pleasant surprise that Howell could actually hang on his own out there, and then some.  Lefeged is a step down for sure but does know the position and we'll sure need him vs. Seattle on Sunday....."and then some"

We've seen TY & Toler in boots. Was precautionary. Prolly best to know before Nancy mode takes over.

Yeah a walking boot does not mean automatic doom. Unless you are Werner and well we already know he is doomed for several weeks.

 

We'll see Friday if anyone is a go this weekend......

 

We always seemed banged up before a quality opponent too. Always......and we tend to be "okay".

Howell had hurt his foot early in the Jags game, and returned shortly after that, hopefully the boot is precautionary like Hilton was last week

The Colts are just cursed with the injury bug. It's to the point now that I have to pessimistically trick myself into automatically excluding at least 3-4 perceived key contributors heading into the season, before I get excited looking at our roster. Makes it much less of a bummer when you EXPECT to lose a number of our best players for an extended stretch every year. lol

    • Possibly. But there is more ways to make it work. Like say swapping a 4th for their 5th too or some other combo if we get their 101 then we get say that 5th or something. That said I want that 82nd and not impressed with the 101st..even if it meant swapping our late 4th for their 5th. That 82nd to me is like the tipping point in the draft. Kinda where that level of talent sees a big drop or players start having limitations or big question marks. Not saying there won't be diamonds in the rough later but percentages aren't on our side.
    •   I hate to be the killjoy and I certainly have NO inside information....   But my hunch,  my instincts,  say that Elway will not trade the 82nd pick that's worth 180 points even thought it's a natural fit.     I'm on record as saying it's a buyers market, not a seller's market,  so I think we're going to have to settle for Denver's 2nd of their two 3rd round picks.     It's pick 101 and it's with 96 points,  less than half of what we'd want.   And for that reason,   I think the haggling is over what else we will demand Denver give us to make up for some of that huge difference.      I don't think i'd want to do a deal just for that 2nd three and take less than 50 cents on the dollar.      I'd tell Elway,   no 2nd pick,  no deal.     And while I don't think Elway will give up a 4,  I think he might be willing to give up a 5 to go with it.      Clearly he'd be more willing to give up a 6,  the question is,  would that be enough for Ballard.      My instincts say no,  but what the Hell do I know,   I'm guessing here....   But my instincts say we'd get the 2nd of the Broncos three's and another pick....     That might get the job done...   I know this viewpoint will be very, very unpopular,  but I think this is a weird draft and that the majority of deals will be discounted.  
    • I see the Patriots getting this guy in the middle round. They love Florida players and seem to always grab guys that tumble but have special talent and turn them into another cog in that machine.
    • That's a reach if I've ever saw one. Honestly he is like the 5th best OL at best and it's likely we would be able to draft the best if we wanted one drafting where we are. Sometimes these guys just force stupid picks on small market teams so they can have some bigger names fall to their big market teams like the Cowboys and Steelers etc because they know they will make more readers happy to see a guy like say Conley fall to the Cowboys or a Reddick fall to the Steelers or say a Charles Harris fall to Atlanta. So what if he screws over the Colts or say the Titans or Cincinnati if it means pushing a clear better talent and fit down the draft board to make a dream scenario for the Jets, Eagles, or Cowboys. That's how I tell the good analysts from the make believe ones as I look for clear outliers.
