Boom To Ir, Still A Colt

Recommended Posts

Yep, he will get an injury settlement and get taken off IR but he cannot return to the Colts this year, he's free to sign with any other team.

I am pretty sure there is buzz about him possibly being released from IR with an injury settlement since it isn't a long term injury.

Injury settlement has to be done within 10 days, and then he can't re-sign with us for three weeks. I'm not sure if that's three weeks from when he's placed on IR, or three weeks from the injury settlement date. Either way, he'll either stay on IR all season -- not likely -- or he'll be away from the team for a few weeks at some point, and he'll be free to sign with anyone who wants him.

On a positive note Amarlo Herrera cleared waivers, so I would assume he would be a prime candidate for our PS.

So there is a possibility that we could resign him this season after the 3 weeks time table ends, and we are in need of a running back?

According to the link, he can re-sign with the team, but not for six weeks after the initially prescribed recovery time, which is the time he's being paid for as part of the settlement. So if he has a 2 week injury, he can't play for us until Week 8. In the meantime, the team pays for recovery and rehab. With that timeframe, IR with Return would basically be the same.

Good news.  Now, if we can add him to the PS and drop Dongo, it would be nice.

It's actually six weeks. See post above.

Ahh, ok. I read a post on Stampede Blue saying he couldn't re-sign here.

Call me crazy, I was never a fan off Herron. Not sure what it was but I never saw anything that made me excited.

Reason for keeping Ballard over Herron.... How bout the jumping cyclone td against the Titans in '12? That's something I can't see Boom doing. And im almost positive Ballard will work on Robinsons game, considering he called JR his "lil bro"

He never gives it a rest......   can't remember the last time he made a positive post about the Colts, unless he expressed happiness over someone losing their job.

 

Hard to believe that he's a Colts' fan.......            :facepalm:

God I hope so, he looked good out there in pre-season.

Boom has to be furious. He has every right to be

about what, being waived? or being put in the meaningless game on special teams? or having a chronically bad shoulder?

So, did they reach an injury settlement or only place him on IR? Since he cleared waivers, was the org obligated to either reach an injury settlement or IR him? Not sure how this works...

Is it safe to say he won't play in a Colts uniform this season?

I say just leave him on IR and let him try a comeback next year for a spot.

 

One thing to remember is that we got him for nothing because nobody wanted him.  He did become a fan favorite, and I like his effort all of the time.  He was waived...nobody wanted him again.  Maybe the Colts were gambling he would clear waivers...just like Duron Carter.  If I was a GM, I would not have signed a player who is out for the year either.  Am I missing something?

Maybe the Colts like what they have in the backfield without out him. Boom said he's fine and now he's on IR.

I suspect many of us were thrilled with Boom last year -- except for the fumbles -- mostly because he was so much better than TRich. He can actually see a small hole and hit it. But taking TRich out of the equation, Boom is nothing special. Perhaps it was stupid to play him in the fourth preseason game, but his loss is not a huge deal.

They have 10 days to reach an injury settlement. For now, he's just on IR.

 

If I were a gambling man, I'd say he doesn't play for the Colts this year. Even with an injury settlement, he can't play for us for at least 6 weeks, regardless of how long it takes for him to recover.

    • In all seriousness though, it would be great if you guys could settle your differences, end this beef and move forward.......you’re both awesome contributors to this forum in your own ways and add some great X’s and O’s and insight that dummies like myself learn a lot from.  This is an open place to express our opinions, and you both know the saying, lol!!!   Why can’t we be friends????    
    • I see the safety depth as really good among those likely to make the roster: Willis, Odum, and Farley.  But after that, it’s a big step down: Milligan and Johnson, and previously Kindred.  I wonder if Tell could be kept on the roster and be given back-up Safety duties.  He probably needs more work before he’s ready to contribute too much at CB...
    • I rewatched the game as I thought this would be pretty strange as well.  He did not play in the fourth except for his usual special teams slot.     I was confused as well by those who say he had a bad game.  He gave up one completion where he got turned around.  Other than that he was glued to his man as usual.    I think he's still having trouble living down his reputation from his rookie year. 
    • depth wise, S, OL, and iDL are my biggest concerns. if folks were grading positions ( starters and depth), i'd be surprised if many graded safety in the top half.  outside of Hooker, lots of questions, at least to me. i definitely don't agree with Venturi. ESPN doesn't either. Hopefully the starters stay healthy, and Willis grows into a stud.
