Hello to all Colts fans back here in the Colts Fan Forum! A battle of greatly improved teams as our 9-4 Colts finally play the AFC South leading and 11-2 Houston Texans. A win by the Colts with the leadership of Head Coach Bruce Arians, and rookie QB Andrew Luck will both make the Colts be game behind the Texans in the division standings, and also reach the threshold of a 10-win season for the first time since 2010. NO injuries to both teams, continue to stay both Colts Strong and Chuck Strong, and GO COLTS!!!

    • I don’t think it will be Ben. I think the above post is right.  It will be that oline guy we picked up on waivers. Ben has actually seen snaps while that tackle has been a healthy scratch.
    • Just the visit evidence is enough. The rule is going to be changed here soon that if your stumbling you can’t go back in. The problem is why does that have to be a rule. Doctors should be smart enough to not let someone back in after stumbling like that after getting hit in the head.
    • Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have been impacted by Hurricane/Storm Ian. We hope everyone here and their loved ones are safe.    Your Indianapolis Colts are home again to face their division rival, the Tennessee Titans. Both teams have won one game and are looking up at the Jacksonville Jaguars who are in first place. It is a new month and the Colts are vying for the top spot in their division. Beating the Titans here keeps the momentum going in the winning direction.    (The video implies that the Colts have lost 2 games. You all know they are 1-1-1. The first game ended in a tie.)   Final Injury Report:  https://coltswire.usatoday.com/2022/09/30/colts-titans-final-injury-report-nfl-week-4/   What are your thoughts on the game?   Good luck and enjoy the game.     
    • This take is wild to me.   Imagine Tua being 'cleared' by the medical staff and then insisting that he doesn't feel right and refusing to go back in. Imagine the way that everyone - fans, media, teammates - would react to that. We've already got * fans of this team insisting that Leonard should be playing because he was able to stand on the sideline and cheer the team on against the Chiefs - people questioning his commitment.   Almost every player is likely to *want* to go back in because they're competitive and relentless by their very nature. It's tough to get to the NFL if you're not a little crazy like that. But even more importantly, every player is *forced* to want to go back in because their entire livelihood depends on it. Tua hasn't had a great start to his career. He's just getting hot and you expect him to say, 'Nah coach, stick Teddy out there. I'm gonna sit this one out. He can win the game as well as I can so it's all good.' You need a little head wobble of your own if you think that constitutes lying or if you think any player is going to say something like that.   It's the players that put their lives on the line when they take the field. They make a fantastic living doing it, and they do it by choice, but there are a huge number of people who also make a great living in the NFL without ever having to place themselves in equally dangerous situations. It's the responsibility of those people - owners, doctors, NFL staff, etc. - to safeguard the players on whom the league relies because they're not always in a position to safeguard themselves.
    • I want him to play but I absolutely want the medical staff to err on the side of caution. A random win in Week 4 isn't worth trading Leonard's long-term health for. You can't be messing around and rolling the dice when it comes to the back/spine.      It's the job of the NFL and its organisations to try to keep the players safe though, not place them in harm's way intentionally. At least, it should be.    That's like saying people shouldn't have to wear seatbelts when they drive because there's a chance that they'll crash and die anyway. I think that's silly.   He didn't pass the rules that were in place, which is a huge part of the problem. Gross Motor Instability is supposed to be an immediate removal from the game and he's placed into concussion protocol. Gross Motor Instability is exactly what Tua displayed but he returned to the game anyway. The only way this could happen is if his instability was proven to be orthopaedic rather than neurological, and there's simply no way that that was the case.
