Hasslebeck was scheduled not to practice today.  Chuck talked like he should also be ready for Sunday early in the week. We'll know more tommorow.

There's no way Luck plays this week. He's been idle for weeks now, no way he's ready to see action on the field

 

Seems you're ruling it out before Luck even ruled himself out.  He didn't even rule his own self out of playing Sunday.

I agree he won't play but I have been hearing such conflicting reports about what he has and has not been doing. They range from he still isn't lifting or running (i.e., isn't increasing heart rate) to he has been lifting and running sprints (i.e., he is healed enough to increase heart rate). Who knows. Obviously want him to play this week IF healthy but really think he practices this week and then plays next week. I suppose they could shut him down for the year if we lose this week. Who knows...just wait and see.

Luck has to be PC and watch what he says. Just my thoughts, obviously. I'd bet the farm that he doesn't play

See my post above. Yesterday I literally saw contradictory reports. I tend to believe he has been lifting, throwing, and running but really we don't know.

the fact that he was able to practice is a good sign by itself. whether he plays or not we'll have to wait and see, but completely jumping to assumpation he wont play is premature

If they asked him if he could play last week against the Jags do you think he would have been PC?  No he would have said no.  Irsay had already projected him playing this week as a possibility.  I don't have high hopes he'll play, but there seem to be some good signs.

 I agree, that's definitely a good sign. And if I'm wrong then so be it, I'm wrong everyday. Like Larry Horseman said, I've read contradicting reports too. Bottom line, despite what any of us think we know about the situation, we're all in the dark.

I have been excited to go to this game all season. It is crucial that we keep the Texans winless at LOS, and regain control of the division. If we win Sunday, do we clinch the division with a second win over the Texans? Either way, all I want for Christmas is to see Andrew suit up against the Texans and blow them away! Let's go 'Shoe!

Well sure. I will be interested to see if we get info on how limited he was. If he practices all week, that's a good sign. I assume then they will scan him on Saturday to see how the kidney is, and clear or not clear him to play. He'll be listed as questionable regardless, I assume...

He went through all the same drills that Whitehurst did. Made all the same throws, long, short, intermediate. I think he'll practice all week. Just a matter of getting medical clearance. If he is medically cleared I would assume he will play.

There was a report the other day that said the docs and trainers were not allowing him to run because of the kidney.  I don't know if it's true.

On the positive side, Watt should be less effective with that club on his hand.

I don't know where that came from. I've heard Luck himself say he's been running.

The best news has been that once his kidney is healed, he presents no more risk to it than any other player does in any other game.  It could be gamesmanship making Houston wonder who will be playing, or better that perhaps he's ready and they held him for this exact game knowing it would likely be the key matchup to make the playoffs and likely it is (if Luck can finish the season they would be favored against Miami and Tenn I expect, if they beat Houston).  But if he can't go, at least it may force Houston to gameplan for all 3 of our QB's.  If it is Whitehurst, only Gore could win the game for us and I don't think he has it in him.  So, we can hope but without Luck or Hasselbeck, the season is over and even with Hasselbeck should he somehow eek us into the playoffs (due to the heinous play of our division) we're not beating Pitt who I predict will have the #5 seed at season's end).  With Luck we'd have a slim shot at a shootout in the 50's.

I'm all for Andrew playing if he is 100% but if he is even 95-99% I don't want him out there. I mean that kidney and abdominal injury have to be 100% healed. Last thing we need is him ending up with a worse kidney injury and possibly ending his career. I know HE wants to play...and the COLTS want him to play...and WE want him to play but honestly we have to protect the future of this franchise...we can't be short-sighted here and risk the next 10 yrs because we MIGHT get a playoff game. I really hope Andrew heals up...I hate the thought of putting him at an increased risk by pressuring him to come back early. I think the fair thing is to let Matt start...win or lose Andrew wouldn't feel pressured to come back too soon. He would come back on his own time with no pressure of worrying about making the playoffs.

Promising but as usual we all really don't know a great deal. If Andrew cant go I pray that Hass is ready because with Charlie out there it's time to just cover your eye's. I expect Hass to play at worse and with the Texans QB situation and their in ability to be able to beat us here in the Watt era we should pull the game out.

    • 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
