Hoyer did roll out to throw that pass TD to Rogers. I'd still say roll with Hoyer if you have any doubt for now vs the Dolphins.

 

Have JB ready for the divisional games coming up, hopefully TY can be back for the Texans game, which would matter more for tie-breakers than anything else. Texans have a brutal stretch coming up vs Ravens, Colts and Patriots in order. It is very possible they get to 6-4 before playing us on TNF, and even if we are 6-4 then, assuming a loss to the Jaguars where we don't do well typically, that would be THE tie-breaker game for the division, IMO.

 

Speaking of TY. Stephen Holder mentioned on the athletic poscast he thinks TY will be back before that 3-4 week mark that Reich said. He thinks Reich was being a little conservative.

It would be amazing  if he was back for the jags game. He said that 3-4 week time frame is for a normal person and he thinks TY is a fast healer.

I believe he has always played with a brace. Don’t know if it would be a different one then he wears now. Anyone know anything about that. That brace he wears might of saved his season.

 

Some QB's wear a certain type brace for protection (I know Luck, Ryan, and Tannehill, for 3, have).  But there are different braces for different situations. Here's just one site-

I'd call up Kelly for a week or two, and be 100% on JB's health. With the Jags/Houston/TN games in a row post Miami, we need him to be as close to perfect as possible. Those 3 games could easily make or crush our season. Two are our only home games vs TN and Jags, and the other is Houston, who we need a tie breaker over. It's probably the most important 3 game stretch of the year.

There's really no reason not to bring Kelly up. We'll have to cut one roster spot when Funch comes back in 2-3 weeks, so just make that cut now, bring Kelly up, and swap Kelly/Funch when Funch comes back.

 

Kelly would have to stay on the 53 man roster, or be subject to be claimed on the waiver wire.

 

What's this swap thing?

If Kelly is called up he will spend very little time with the ones.   Hoyer will get almost all the time with the ones.

 

Kelly might get a little time.  Might.  But most of his time will be with the twos plus whatever Kelly can get done post practice. 

 

Which brings up an interesting question.  Who runs the 'scout' team this week in practice? I think Hoyer was doing it before JB's injury...

Reich can only go by what the Colts medical team tells him, he doesn't make any prognosis or projections on his own.  IF T.Y. heals fast, then he will be cleared faster than may have been 'projected'.  I would not want to see him come back to fast and re-aggravate it either. We'll see.

I know that. I just thought his comment was interesting. The way Reich said it though I can see why Holder was thinking that.

He cleared waivers once already, so likely he does again.

 

I was talking about bringing him up now and making whatever cut they are going to make for bringing Funch back just a week or so earlier, and then sending Kelly back to the PS. Sure it's a small dice roll with Kelly, but I'd say it was a bigger dice roll the first time. There were more teams looking for QBs at that time, than now IMO. Most teams without a QB now with a bad record are likely in the tank mode for the draft.

Jacoby mentioned to day he would probably be using the same brace he has always used if he plays. I think that sounds like good news.

Yeah, Reich wont rush anybody back unless they are 100% or close to it.

He isn't going to give away any info to the Fins tho.

    • When you take into consideration what Faulk did along with Bruce and Holt those may have been the best three headed combo in history.  The one receiver that was as good as Rice was Tim Brown. He just didn't play his career with QBs Montana and Young. He was just as talented. 
    • Duper and Clayton were a pretty good duo that get overlooked. 
    • I didn’t say you did.  I said they were.   Marvin is fifth in career catches and Wayne is 10th.  Bruce is 13th and Holt doesn’t make the top 13.   Holt is 16th in career yards and 36th in TDs.     So Harrison tops Bruce in catches and TDs while Bruce has the edge in yards.  I think TDs and catches are much more important than yards. Wayne tops Holt in everything and tops Bruce in catches.     As a duo give me Harrison and Wayne.   Moss and Carter is another good duo although it was short lived and the Steelers had Stallworth and Swann.  Those are the best sets I can come up with.     The Steelers have been good at producing stud WRs as a franchise but I am not sure I would take them over Harrison and Berry who are probably two of the top 10 WRs to ever play the game and Wayne who is also probably going to end up a Hall of Famer.  
    • Where did I say they were?  Harrison and Wayne were 9th and 10th in career yards while Bruce was 5th. Harrison was 5th in TDs while Wayne was 24th. Bruce was 12th.  So it's debatable.   
    • Wayne and Harrison were just as good.
