Just watched report on ESPN that DHB appears to have sprained his knee today in practice. Not good, I wonder how serious it is? and how long he'll be down. Hopefully he starts the season would LOVE to see him 'light up' Oakland. Anyone with news keep us updated plz.

It's a knee sprain....relax

That's also what the Colts thought when Edgerrin James tore his ACL in the 2001 season.

And a brused knee for Marvin Harrison in the 2007 season.

My point is whenever a knee is involved I never feel comfortable until they have played a few games on it.

Darrius Heyward-Bey hurts knee in Colts practice

 

here are articles

That progress may be on hold for a little bit. Craig Kelley of the Colts website passes along word that Heyward-Bey sprained his left knee at the team’s practice on Sunday. There’s nothing more about the extent of the injury or possible timetables for return at this point, but it’s a good bet that Heyward-Bey will see some time on the sideline and miss next weekend’s preseason opener against the Bills next Sunday.

Mortensen on ESPN says DHB has a sprained MCL which is what Robert Mathis missed 3 weeks with last season

I figure they hold him out of the preseason. That sucks, just as he was starting to seem comfortable. But not the end of the world.

It's a knee sprain. He could be back as soon as next week.. No need to rush it. Benn for Philadelphia had the same injury and only missed a week. I'm sure he will be back by week 1. But hopefully he will be back for the final pre season game to get some reps in.

And yes I would LOVE to see him light up Oakland.

I think he should take it easy during preseason. No reason to risk anything until he and the coaches are comfortable getting him out there. Hopefully, the time out doesn't hurt him much, but on the bright side, these younger guys can take advantage of increased reps

on the bright side it's NOT a torn ACL or something. I agree with taking it easy i would be shocked if he plays Sunday.

just saw on Rotoworld... Great News.

 

Coach Chuck Pagano said an MRI on Darrius Heyward-Bey's left knee came back negative.

The MRI confirmed that Heyward-Bey did not sustain any ligament tears. As previously reported by ESPN's Chris Mortensen, he has an MCL sprain and is expected to be sidelined for a few weeks. The Colts have officially listed DHB as "day to day." T.Y. Hilton is going to run away with the No. 2 wideout job.

Beat me to it. This is very good news, but it seems like everyone is sold on TY over DHB. Not saying I agree or disagree, though.

    • A number of websites have projected the size of the free agent contracts.    On PFF,  they will even show you their comparisons and the math used to make the final prediction for years and dollars.   BUT....   No where am I seeing anything that reflects the fact that teams are dealing with a lowered salary cap,  and they're all going to have roughly $15 million less to spend.    I don't see any predictions that reflect that world.    Seems counter-intuitive to me.    With all the talk we've all read about how the middle class players are going to bear the burden of smaller contracts,  I'm not seeing that anywhere in these predictions.     And frankly,  I don't understand it?   If you didn't know about how Covid has hurt the NFL,  you couldn't tell by the salary predictions anywhere.    To me,  it reads pretty much as business as usual.   So.....   is it just me?     Or has anyone else noticed this?     Your thoughts?  
    • Zierlein is always a good read.   And given he's tight with Ballard,  I always recommend that you read everything he says.   It's as close as we're going to get inside Ballard's head, other than hearing from CB ourselves.   Here, he lists 10 prospects, who, for a variety of reasons, he thinks they need a really good pro day to bump up their draft status.    On a personal note,  I was surprised to NOT see two of my Stanford kids on this list.    Neither Walker Little or Paulson Adebo are on his list.    Maybe he doesn't think either needs a great pro day.   But I'd disagree.    Frankly,  I think every player who opted out needs a very good pro day.    As good as they can make it.    The absence of the combine is seriously going to hurt a big number of kids.   Here's his article.    And it includes a hyper-link to the latest updated Pro Day Schedule.   Those get under way full speed this coming week.   https://www.nfl.com/news/2021-nfl-draft-ten-prospects-who-could-use-a-pro-day-boost
