Dallas Clark Injured Vs Falcons


Recommended Posts

I don't think many of you noticed (no one has talked about it thus far), but Dallas Clark suffered a knee injury today. Don't know the extent of the injury, but we know it's a lower leg injury and it forced him to miss most of the game.

You know I hate to see anyone get hurt but the way this whole team is playing is kind of embarrassing right now to say the least. We have players that are pro-bowlers and they sure aren't playing like that. The coaching is awful but the players are at fault because they are playing not the coaches. I can see the Rookies making mistakes but what's with the false starts coming from Freeney? What's up with that? Our starters wouldn't be starting on other teams with they way they are playing. Well it's going to be a long season and I guess we just have to suffer through it.

Mistakes are maginified when you cant score.

Our defense has had its horror shows but there's nothing they can do when we cant change thscoreboard..

Our offense was shut OUT today..

What do we average./..14 points a game...?

We should be 0-9 averaging 14 points game

If he is out for next week, hopefully the take Epps off the practice squad and we can see what he can do.

Don't know yet, but Jacob Tamme would be the replacement with Brody Eldridge coming in. Dedrick Epps would probably stay on the PS, but if he gets promoted, he'll probably just play special teams.

As much as I hate to say it...in the first game against Houston...they zoomed in on Clark sitting on the bench after a putrid offensive series...the look on his face said it all. Without Peyton at the helm I think Clark more than anybody has...not really given up...but just not giving it his all.

Maybe he just knew then what we know now ... that the Colts are a one man team.

I think we need to start looking at tight ends in the draft as well. We need a guy that can stay on the field ever play. I like Elderidge, but we need a guy that needs to be accounted for just like Clark. This draft is deep in TE's.

Dallas left in 2nd quarter, also Eldrige hurt hand & Taken out

thats why Tamme was in and u may have heard announcer actually say Garcon in TE position a few times

Note all week Clark Prcatriced with injured knee on a LTD basis, so played with injury , only could make it worse

    • They very well might wait until the season gets closer. 
    • Stephen Holder doesn’t expect anything soon either. As a lot of people predicted, this was a ‘see how the rehab is going’ type visit.    
    • The study actually had a 'matched control' group.   ** Abstract Background: Achilles tendon injuries are common in sports, including football. The purpose of this study was to determine (1) return-to-sport rate in National Football League (NFL) players following Achilles tendon repair, (2) postoperative career length and games per season, (3) pre- and postoperative performance, and (4) postoperative performance compared with control players matched by position, age, years of experience, and performance.   Methods: Publicly available records were used to identify NFL players who underwent Achilles tendon repair and matched controls were identified. Ninety-five players (98 surgeries) were analyzed (mean age 28.2 ± 2.8 years; mean 5.5 ± 2 .8 years in NFL at time of surgery). Demographic and performance data were collected. Comparisons between case and control groups and preoperative and postoperative time points were made using paired-samples Student t tests. **   @SteelCityColt could explain the statistical portion much better than I can.     There's really only two surgical methods used to stitch the tendon back together, I pointed them out above. Any (likely team) orthopedic surgeon or foot/ankle specialist can do it.  Players pick special doctors, but people (everyday Joe and Jane's) can and do get non-surgical or operative Achilles repair as indicated by skilled surgeons in their own town.     Feel free to read it, and critique the methods, data, and results if you wish.   https://www.researchgate.net/publication/318691345_Performance_and_Return_to_Sport_After_Achilles_Tendon_Repair_in_National_Football_League_Players     The study is above, I think you should read it in its entirety then comment  Here's another performed from 2009-2014 that paints an even more grim picture.                  v v v https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6415485/   "80 NFL players were identified as having primary Achilles tendon tears between the 2009 and 2014 seasons. RTP (return to play) was defined as playing in a regular season or postseason game following injury. Probability of RTP was modeled as a function of time after injury in Kaplan-Meier analysis with demographic variables assessed via generalized linear models. Twelve players (15%) experienced a subsequent Achilles tendon tear during or after the study period and were included in the overall RTP rate but were excluded from performance analyses owing to the confounding effects of an ipsilateral retear or contralateral tear."   ** Conclusion: Rate of RTP (return to play) following primary Achilles tendon tears may be lower than previously published. (not reflected in the above study though). However, for those able to return, performance only in the season immediately following injury appears to be affected; players return to preinjury levels if given the opportunity to play >1 season after injury. **   The interesting take from them is in bold/italics.     I've mentioned this before- I feel the patient/athletes biological makeup and their dedication to rehab have a much bigger influence in RTP than the typical skill of a properly executed surgical repair.     They do what they can.  
    • The Colts have $22M in cap space for 2021 but any extension they hand out won’t apply against 2021 cap. They have $90M in projected 2022 cap space. Braden and Maniac will cost about $35M combined. They have $22M in 2021 to spend on LT plus $55M in 2022 with the Quarterback, Defensive Line, Linebacker and Offensive Line basically set. This doesn't include rollover money.    Marvell is coming back after sitting out the season due to Covid and I'm not ready to give up on Rock yet. Potentially, Ballard won't be in a position to draft Stingley or Elam because he might not have a 1st round pick next year and the CB draft class in 2022 not really deep. My question is, will Ballard be in a position to sign someone like Conley's Ohio State teammate Marshon Lattimore if the Saints let him walk? There has been talk about Lattimore coming to the Colts on this forum before. 
    • Soooo Ballard once again told us exactly what he was going to do or not do and why but people ignored it because it’s not what they wanted?
