That was an ankle, this is being termed a calf. A walking boot for an ankle is mostly precautionary. For a calf issue... probably more than precautionary. 
 

Also, let’s not forget what the last calf injury we dealt with cost us...

I don’t know why we didn’t trade for Emmanuel Sanders

 

Because Ballard does not believe in giving up draft picks. After a while, he will realize you have to give up some to get something valuable.

This game will serve to validate the quality of the coaching staff.

Yep. We are about to see what kind of coach Reich and Sirriani are.

True. We do have weapons in Ebron, Campbell, Cain, Hines and Pascal. I just think we needed an extra WR because none of them are exactly lighting the league up...and now Hilton is hurt. Either they step their game up or Ballard makes himself look foolish for once.

It's still gonna be tough.  TY is what Rick Venturi would call and Ambien player.  Steelers won't have to worry about double teaming TY so now they can focus on other area.

Ballard was bailed out by his Inman pickup last year, but this year, we have to expect Funchess' return plus our young guns to bail us out. I am not going to shake pom-poms for Ballard on this front, to be honest!!!

I for one think this is kind of fun.

 

I'm interested in seeing if the Colts can overcome this.

Kind of crazy that rumor turned out to be pretty much true. He got the MRI and it ends up not being season ending but that poster had a source.

Our WR2 is now Zach Pascal.  That scares me.  Time for our young guys to learn to be NFL calibur players.

This seems like a curse but if Brissett can get in sync with Campbell and Cain before TY  and Funch get back into the swing of things it will be a big blessing.  I'm looking forward to seeing how we take on this challenge .

The coaches work with the talent they have and are provided.  The loss of TY is major.  Ebron is the only guy you mentioned who has had multiple good games in the past.  That puts a lot of pressure on the others to perform and so far they have been nothing special.  You are right.  They need to step up big.  Ballard had a chance to add one proven receiver and he didn't do it.  He took a gamble and it might come back to haunt him if we don't make the playoffs.

What proven reciever was on the trading block?

People are talking about which WR will step up but I think Hines is about to get a lot of play now. He's second on the team in receptions and, along with Doyle, seem to be Brissett's security blanket.

IT will be interesting. Defense needs to step up. Saw a tweet Jacoby addressed the team about Hilton being out. If we pull off the Steelers with our Hilton we are sitting pretty good. There is no excuse to lose to Miami. Then if get Funchess back for the jags game we might be ok.

Ir will be fun to see how we use Campbell.

If its any consolation....RB James Conner is doubtful, RB Benny Snell is out and so is G Ramon Foster.

 

I'm sticking with my prediction....

 

Colts       24

Steelers 16

Suppose we can add that JB can quiet his doubters as well.

Yep. This was a point east street made earlier. Maybe this is a blessing in disguise and will help JB develop some chemistry with Cain and Campbell.  Then when funchess comes back and Hilton comes back that actually makes this team that much better. Of course though we might end up falling flat on our faces.

I think this might be a game hooker has some INT. Rudolph was just throwing passes  up last week. The RB for the Steelers who is active is still pretty good though.

I was just getting ready to post that Hines will probably be on the field more.

Why?   Because his crystal ball didn't work?   Campbell is back.   Funchess is due back soon.  Trading for a WR wasn't a huge priority.

Robbie Anderson of the Jets for sure and Agholor was reportedly available.  Sanu and Sanders as well.  I think Sanu went for a 2nd.  Sanders a 3rd and 5th.  Both to contenders and they are already paying off.  The Jets were reportedly offered a 3rd for Anderson and they were holding out for a 2nd which we could have paid and still have a 2nd in the bank.   The consensus on Agholor was a 4th.  The two unbeaten contenders stepped up.  We rolled the dice.

Hopefully he is not using a crystal ball.  Campbell hasn't shown a thing yet. Funchess has to show he has recovered from an injury.  At 2-5 I can see waiting to see if the young guys can do it.  At 5-2 and in 1st place in the middle of a SB run it would have been prudent to make a move to try and improve the team and at the same time to improve an important position group that has only one proven player you can count on.  TY's big catch last week on the sideline speaks for itself.  Ballard took the gamble. Time will tell if it he was right.

Ballard  trusts the young guys I don't  atleast  not yet

    • The 49ers are much more talented than the Packers were. Rogers had a pretty good game but he couldn't help the defense stop the run. The running stats for the 49ers is off the hook. 
    • I won't respond the the other nonsense posted in this post because it's off-topic, but the bolded is complete and utter horse manure... He has plenty of tape of him going through 2-3 read progressions, moving safeties, holding them with his eyes while waiting for routes to develop, etc. You've clearly not watched much or any of him. 
    • I’m looking forward to the XFL.  Hoping it lasts longer than the AAF did.  The AAF had all their teams pretty much in the south and none in the Midwest or Northeast.  Hopefully, the locations of the XFL teams will benefit the league.  Every XFL game is televised nationally, also, so it everyone should be able to at least watch the team they wish to follow each week.  Starts the weekend following the Super Bowl!
    • One of the wisest questions I have seen on here ever!  I totally agree.  Why would you think an older Brady would be any better behind a bad o-line?
    • The new money they get for the deal will effect the cap. As far as Hilton and funchess goes, we need both because we lack experience at that position. Funchess's injury was unfortunate, but he played well vs the chargers and we need a big body target. Hilton was putting up really good numbers before he got hurt and he's been critical to the team's success. With all the extension and players like Mack, Nelson, and Leonard that will soon get big contracts, we can't go hard in FAs. I do think Brockers fills a big void to help not only our run defense, but also keep our LBers clean. Mcdonald is sure handed and a possession target that we need along with a very good blocker.
