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?

Is Seattle riddled with injuries on an epic magnitude?

Vontae Davis is what happens when an unstoppable force meets and immovable object, then they have a kid!

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.

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.

I wouldnt read too much into it...yet. I forget who it was but a colts player was in a boot last week. We all flipped out, but he was fine.

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.

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

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.

    So in other news, TK24 has a spiral fracture in his fibula on his right leg. So, now sentenced to bed rest and possible surgey, TK24's activity on the forum may take a slight decrease
