That kind of answer is expected. You don't want a player to just come and say "yeah, it looks bad, i don't think i can go" 

 

Actually I do wish players and coaches would be straight up about things. Instead of us having no idea. But the good thing is TY seems to be ok. And by ok I mean only out a game or 2.

True, but by the way it was written, "out couple of weeks" , sounds like it could be more than than but hoping for the best

Colts' Jim Irsay: T.Y. Hilton likely to miss a few weeks

 




Although X-rays on his knee came back negative, Colts owner Jim Irsay said wide receiverT.Y. Hilton will likely miss a few weeks due to a knee bruise, reports The Indianapolis Star.


After the game, Hilton said his knee hit the ground hard, but he would be OK.


"I'll be alright," Hilton said. "Just gotta get in the training room [Monday] and see what's up."

Missing a few weeks because of a bruise? That extension is really paying off..

He did give 0 effort on a few plays too but a deep bruise in a joint like a knee or elbow is no joke if he did play he could not run routes or use his speed would nothing more than a decoy .

I didn't like what I saw on the INT play but he also had 7 catches for 88 yards before he got hurt.  He was one of the guys producing on offense until the injury.  I agree though, a knee bruise is no joke, especially for a guy like a WR.

Looked poorly under thrown to me Luck gets it out there it's 6. I think he plays Monday.

Moncrief he was actually productive.  Andre's starting to look like Hakeem Nicks was.  

 

I hope I'm wrong about that but several plays reminded me of Hakeem Nicks.

He was washed up last year he is still a big bodied receiver that can outplay DB's for the ball but getting separation with his route running and speed are behind him . I was in shock with the contract we gave him just going to be another nail in Grigs coffin .

Guys I will be fine.

All jokes aside I think this is a good opportunity to see what our corps are gonna be like this year outside of TY

I agree as well. This gives Moncrief and Dorsett plenty of reps the next couple weeks that they wouldn't normally get. Hopefully allowing for them to get comfortable running different routes and gaining experience that will benefit us when we get to the elite portion of our schedule and down the stretch. It isn't where the team is now...but come December what will truely be important and this can only deepen our wr core.

Not sure how all of it works, but would it be posible to pull in Carter from the practice squad as a backup?

They could but they probably won't.  One you can only have 45 active on game day, two if you sign him from the PS then you have to cut him again and wait for him to clear waivers before you can sign him back to the PS, three the Colts still have 4 WRs and with 3 TEs, one that is capable of splitting out wide, that should be enough if TY can't go in this game or next.

After reading some tonight I am starting to think he might actually play....

Yeah I think he's been ruled a game time decision.  Either way even if he's not out there Monday this probably means he's going to be back sooner rather than later which is clearly good news.

    • Welp, at minimum, you'll know their grade. And you can read up on anyone you might target on NFL.com prospect tracker if you feel like researching a bit. They have profiles for pretty much every top 300+ kid.
    • Agree that he would likely have been cut last year - whether he would have wound up on our PS or getting picked up elsewhere, I don't know for sure.     As we saw last year, the D 'Flus is running very rarely is a true 4-3 with 4 DL, 3 LBs, 4 DBs - instead, we're using 4 DL and more often 2 LBs with 5 DBs (or less often 1 LB and 6 DBs).   My guess with Ballard not making much effort going after A-Walker is that we'll typically see Leonard and Okereke in 2 LB situations and that they've got confidence in Speed to use him in 3 LB situations.  If not, Franklin (though he had the most ST snaps on the team) is pretty adequate at LBer if needed as a backup.  Adams and Glasgow were used entirely on STs last year and I get the feeling Glasgow sort of carved out a niche for himself as a STer moving forward (i.e., unless drastic emergency, we won't see him on the field as a LBer but he'll be likely to keep a roster spot).     I won't be shocked to see Ballard pick up a LB in the draft or bring in some UDFAs to battle for roster spots.  Heck, I won't be shocked to see him bring in a vet FA if the price is right.  It appears we should be set at LB, though Leonard has missed a game or more to injury each of his 3 years and Oke didn't seem to show much improvement between year 1 and 2.     As I see it now, without any significant additions, Skai has a legit shot to beat out Adams since he probably fits the mold on what we're trying to do on D a bit more and Adams was used entirely as a ST guy last year (i.e., Moore basically needs to outcompete Adams for ST reps or be near him with a bit more upside as a back-up defender).     I still rank OT, Edge, TE, WR as clear needs over LB.  Not as clear, but I have secondary as a bigger need than LB right now, too -- so I won't be shocked if we address the LB position in the draft, but agree that having Moore back gives us the option to go towards one of those positions instead of LB if the BPA is pretty close between a LBer and an aforementioned position.   One thing that'll be interesting to me is how Ballard and the coaching staff treat the guys who opted out.  Obviously we have no idea how conversations went with those players who opted out, and I don't know all their motivations for doing so (I believe Tell had a sick grandmother or something like that)... but I know Ballard doesn't like guys who he thinks opt not to play for their own benefit over that of the team (e.g., saying Ebron quit on the team with a minor ankle injury that Ebron elected to get season ending surgery on instead of toughing out the last 5-6 games two seasons ago).  If Ballard believes (as you somewhat eluded to) that Moore opted out rather than getting cut, I can see Moore being let go pretty early -- if Moore gave Ballard a legit reason to opt out, I hope Moore has kept himself in shape and is ready to ball out, as he seemed like a very solid playmaker at S. Carolina during his college years.       Ballard and Flus both said last year that Speed is as physically gifted as any LB on our roster.  I think it was known he was a project since being drafted -- coming from a small school with limited LB experience (he was a QB in HS, converted to WR as a freshman at Tarleton State, then from WR to DE and eventually DE to LB).  He made a few big time plays on STs last year and in his limited action at LB, he looked fine to me (hard to judge, as most of his LB action was in garbage time).  My gut tells me the coaching staff has seen enough of him that they're pretty confident in what he can do at LB and I'm excited for it -- TBH, just athletically with him, Leonard and Oke we have to have one of the more purely athletic group of LBs in the league (e.g., what we may lose a pure FB player in AW, we probably make up for with Speed's pure athletic ability).     In terms of Tell, I am excited for him.  He seemed to do well in his chances as a rookie and it's impossible to say, but my guess is with some of Ya-Sin's struggles last year, we may have seen Tell take over the CB2 role across from Rhodes by the mid-point of last season.  That said, I'm not giving up on Ya-Sin - I think he'll improve and will be a solid player, especially if we can generate a bit more pass rush.  I know one thing Ballard liked about Tell from day 1 was his ability to play CB or S if need be giving his size, range and athleticism.  Personally, I like Blackmon more as a SS than FS and don't dislike the idea of Tell lining up at FS, Blackmon as SS and Willis lining up in the box against TEs.  
    • Well I won't know who the hell they are anyway :-)  
    • Our goal for the mock is to make it super easy, and super quick, so folks can have a painless experience. As long as you show up 5-10 minutes before your pick to see what is available, you'll be on for no longer than 15min.   As far as needs are concerned, you don't have to follow anything if you don't want. If you get the Colts in the lottery, feel free to take a WR at 21, or even trade up :-) and get one earlier.
    • Sounds good. I'm a computer/tech ill* (my own word, supposed to sound like illiterate), I'll try not to screw it up when draft time comes.   Only disagrement I have with your Colts needs is I think we need a clear alpha WR or TE to take the next step, so I'd put that in the Primary slot. Otherwise, I see it the way you do for the most part.
