Delano Howell Injured

69 posts in this topic

Howell's issue is a toe?  Ouch, turf toe is the injury that keeps on giving.

 

If Landry's injury was a high ankle sprain, that's normally a 4 weeker.  This is week 3, correct?

As I said in another thread on this guy, while I think he's pretty good, I also think some of his success filling in for Landry is because the other players around him in the secondary are so good (Bethea, Davis, Toler, Butler specifically).  So even if, say, Lefeged was the guy, I think we'd be OK because I think the overall quality of the secondary can help hide his deficiencies.

Ife Lefeged gets the nod I can live with it. But it is only Wednesday, I would say Howell will be out there Sunday

Bethea, Butler, Davis could not hide Zbikowskis inept play last year, if ya got a bad Safety or bad Corner out there a good QB will pick on him all day long, Think Cassius Vaughn vs Calvin Johnson, That was painful to watch

Seriously. Somebody figure out who * off Cthulu and cursed Indy with this injury bug. It's always been bad but this year is just mind blowing.

Is Seattle riddled with injuries on an epic magnitude?

no, the Colts are completely riddled but the broncos and other teams have had their share (even the pats)

No? Three starters are out on Seattle's offensive line and they might not have Michael Bennett back either.  Not to mention Harvin.

not this year but next 

 

My hope....   almost my expectation....  is that we re-sign him in the off-season and he makes the team in 2014....

 

That makes sense to me....    I hope it does to the Colts too....

Cassius Vaughn on ANYBODY last year was painful....but you are correct....Calvin Johnson....the worst.  But then again he is Megatron!

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....

I thought I was going to get a boot after my surgery to put fake Achilles' tendon in my leg between 3rd and 4th grade since I was told I would have a walking cast... I woke up in a full leg cast with a cloth shoe to wear.

So what exactly is up with Laron  Landry's ankle problem. I havnt herd anything on it.

The only thing I've heard was 2-3 weeks.  So he'll probably miss thiss week and be back next week.  If he's 90% and Howell can't play, maybe they bring him back sooner.  While I don't want to lose this game, I'd prefer they not put Landry in unless he was 100%...we're paying him too much to force him back before he's ready and then have something worse happen on the field.

Howell back, but now Vontae was DNP :(

Resting day for Vontae. Hugh Thornton and quite a few others didn't practice today either

Vaughn wouldn't start. He'd be the nickel CB. Greg Toler & Darius Butler would be the 1 & 2 if Vontae was a no go

Okung is out for sure I think. The other two might be back.

Idk if it's been stated but Howell was full go today per the injury report at the bottom of the Richardson article that came out today on the main site.

Another thing is "back" doesn't mean 100%. Look at AC as an example. He was back, but didn't get fully healthy and contributing till week 3.

    • NFL's Chad Reuter gives Colts A for Draft
      And this is what I've been trying to tell people. Yes, there are some people in the media who are just happy the Colts took a couple of offensive lineman because it fits the narrative that the Colts needed to draft for need and did.   But smarter analysts like Reuter realize that's drafts are about value and the Colts got incredible value with each pick. You go for value each round, not need. The Colts held true to their BPA ideal and were able to get good value and fill needs. That's how you draft.

    • TJ Green: Scouting Proile
      That article really speaks on him in the pure FS role.  Colts recognize he'll need a little work and I'm sure they feel they can coach him into it.  Right now he'll help us in the sub packages on the tight ends and other stuff which I think he'll do well at that as he learns.   
    • Ryan Leaf's Comment on Johnny Manziel
      I agree with Chad and Girlzarefanstoo. There are just so many circumstances with these things, and no two people are the same. My father AND my grandfather were alcoholics, but both had different situations and choices to how they became that. Sometimes a person put in a certain environment will react to said environment, and other times they won't. From experience, it does often come down to choice. My father decided he had a problem and on his own sought for help, which saved his life. My grandfather didn't, and his health deteriorated severely.    Humans are both predictable and unpredictable. It's quite often we never get the explanation or reason for an action that we personally want, because sometimes there isn't a reason. Sometimes people just... do.
