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.

    • Good points... I agree misdiagnoses is involved, the next few days is going to tell a lot. How did he react to the workout, will he be practicing regularly going forward?  What comes out from the Colts early this week is going to be telling. I'm with you @90%... if he can tolerate lateral motion and repeated exercise he could be good to go but needs a couple of weeks of practice to be ready.   TY: Dude?  High Ankle? Come On? Get the heck out here, man! j/k...
    • Maybe if that OL coach wasn't acting like such a *, he would still be employed by the team.   I'm all about winning football, but not when our own players are being alienated and harrassed.
    • It could be a way to try to motivate the kid too. Or it could mean absolutely nothing.
    • Good....   They have no one to blame but themselves.... because Antonio Brown is a head case the likes of which we haven’t seen since Terrell Owens.... and they knew it.   Talk about high maintenance? He makes the space shuttle look like a paper airplane.
    • If we keep 6, and a 3rd X, he might be a bit better WR than Pascal, but the overall net/net would be negligible.   Inman would not be #3 this year. He might be the 3rd X if we kept 3 Xs, but at best he'd be 5th or 6th. Inman was #2 or #3 last year because we had a cluster at X. The Pats don't even have high quality depth, and Inman struggled there. Don't get me wrong, I love Inman for his contribution last year, but he's not a true #2 or #3.    At the beginning of the year, I'd bet you're likely going to see  1. TY 2. Funch 3. Rogers 4. Cain 5. Campbell   By the end of the year, I'd bet you're likely going to see 1. TY 2. Cain 3a. Campbell 3b. Funch 5. Rogers   Funch will start out as primary X, but you're going to see Funch play more and more slot as the year goes along. We're likely going to see Cain and Funch on the field at the same time. Roger's snaps will decrease as Funch slides to slot more often and as Campbell matures.   I wouldn't mind Inman over Pascal at #6 (if we keep 6), but overall you're only getting a little bit better/mature 3rd X, and you'd be cutting your experienced KR.   I don't expect Rogers to be here next year, but he's a lock IMO at this point. He's the only experienced slot in our system, and with Campbell missing so much, it's getting more and more unrealistic to think he won't be here to start as slot. He's also the only guy that has experience at Z (now that Fountain is gone) and has backed up TY. Ideally you also want you're 4th-6th WR to be the one taking PRs.   I hope they keep in contact with Inman, and even bring him to camp in case we need help this year due to injuries. It's pretty unlikely he makes the 53 though.
