Mack's hand is fractured

Recommended Posts

I think they said we will no more tomorrow but it really sucks. We keep taking one foot forward and two steps back. Looks like injuries were very costly today.

If not... then they may have to call up Darius Jackson from the practice squad.

 

Darius Jackson: Remarkable pro day

 

Jackson (6-foot-1, 220) ran the 40-yard dash in 4.35 and 4.38 seconds at the Michigan pro day Friday, NFL.com reports. Jackson added a 41-inch vertical, 133-inch broad jump, 4.27-second 20-yard shuttle and 6.82-second three-cone drill.

 

Jackson was mostly an afterthought in this draft after playing at lowly Eastern Michigan, but he almost has to get drafted after a workout like this. The 41-inch vertical would tie for eighth-best among running backs at the Combine since 2006, while the 133-inch broad jump would tie for fifth-best over that span. To post those jumps and a sub-4.4 40 at 220 pounds is quite impressive. Jackson didn't do much for his first two years at Eastern Michigan, but he enjoyed an impressive breakout season in 2015, running for 1,078 yards and 14 touchdowns on 208 carries (5.2 YPC) while showing pass-catching ability by snagging 21 passes for 201 yards and two more scores.

Williams looks for real 

Well, the line looked for real.  Not to take too much from Williams today, but I think I could have run for a few yards today with some of the holes that were opened up today.

Thursday will be a big game for him, that's for sure.

Such a shame.  He was having a great game.  But to be honest I am not that surprised.  He has been injured every year he's been here.  Wilkens will be active for sure.  Our line was opening huge holes today.  If they can do it again Thursday we should be okay in the run game.

Yep, so do I.  Looks like a north/south runner.

 

I think we can do a pretty good job running the ball against the Texans so hopefully he'll have a good game.  Both he and Hines should be okay Thursday (I hope!).

Depending on the severity of Mack’s injury the colts might have some decisions to make as far as IR. If he is only expected to miss the same as Campbell can we afford to keep two guys on the roster and not IR them.

Yeah that is big I have to admit. If he plays I think we got this, if not it is 50/50.

I love Marlon, but I've always felt that given a chance, Wilkins could put up similar numbers.  His "fumbling problem" has been blown out of proportion IMO.  I hope he gets the bulk of carries as long as Mack is out.

I've always liked Wilkins as well, Thursday could be a big game for him if he is fit to go. Williams showed me something today, wasnt sure he had that in him and yes the Line opened massive holes but he hit the correct ones and kept his feet churning throughout the runs. If Houston doesnt show up Thursday like they didnt today its going to be a real long day for them.

This is my fault unfortunately. Mack got an 8 week injury on Madden for me right before the Colts played. Must be the "realism" part of the game. :(

I hate to hear this.   He's been such a bright spot this year.

 

Hope you heal quickly, Mack.

 If it is a fracture, this says it’s a three week healing process. I guess we’ll know for sure tomorrow.

I doubt very much he plays Thursday but I wouldn’t use the above as any form of guide as to how long. 

 

You could probably play through a fracture depending on what type.

If he was a defender maybe with a club. However i doubt a ball carry would want to do that especially in the hand. But i could be wrong

If the oline can keep run blocking like that we will be fine for a few games without Mack. Wilkins and Williams just need to stay healthy the next few weeks. Hopefully Mack’s hand isn’t seaon ending. Reich did say Wilkins might miss one game so I think he should be back Thursday.  Houston not having Watt should help the passing and run game although they have tried to fix their corner issue.

He will miss about a month or so I bet. So it will all but knock him out for almost the rest of the regular season.

He’s done for the year. Bet it. 
 

Was at the game. Buddy of mine texted me he had already been ruled out before us in the stands even knew he was injured. Has to be pretty serious for them to know that quick he was out, and it’s fractured.

If he doesn’t need surgery he might not be out long.

He will for sure miss this upcoming important game Thursday and probably 1-2 more after that.

    • If the rumors are true the Lion's ownership said win next season or everyone is gone. If this is the case I can't see how a rookie QB is going to give them a better chance than Stafford.  Also they would probably be better off spending their #3 pick on a "win now" piece versus a rookie QB who may have to sit a year, or even trading down a bit and possibly acquiring a couple immediate impact players. But who knows with all the misinformation this time of year. 
    • Let's cut it guys. Calling people liars and mental I don't think belongs on a team Forum. Just my opinion but lets try to stay on Colt topics please.
    • I hope we go DT first BUT, and this is big, you go with your highest rated players.  I know people don't like to hear that but it's true.  You simply can't just draft for need.  That has killed a lot of GM's and let a lot of fans down.     With that said, I have Jeudy as my non-professional, purely fandom #6 best rated prospect in this entire class, regardless of position.  I think he's that good.  So getting him at #13 would be, to me, a coup.  And I think he will produce immediately at the next level.   And to those saying why draft a WR when you don't have a QB that can get it to him?  You are thinking too narrowly.  You don't draft for ONE year.  You BUILD a team the best way you can.  And you do that by taking the best players available when they come to you.  Whether you get the QB you need this year, next year, or 2 years down the road is irrelevant to drafting the BPA in THIS draft.  Every year is different, FA factors in, trades happen with much more regularity now, and you never know what will happen with injuries, etc.  This does not even take into account draft day trades and pick trades which are common now too.  Sure, if the QB you want is there, you take him.  But if he isn't, you take someone else who will help you just the same at another position and wait for your QB in another situation.
    • Yes I do realize this.  Ballard is t on the hot seat.  I said if they aren’t sniffing the playoffs in 2yrs there will be a rumbling for change.  NFL work is a job.  People are handed a tough job all the time and have things happen that aren’t their fault.  It doesn’t change the fact that leadership will always be responsible regardless of most circumstances.  It’s not fair but that happens a lot in anyone’s career.  Either he responds effectively and all is good or in two years it still looks the same.  Time will tell. I think he is qualified for the job. 
    • It could have nothing to do with his medicals. Maybe teams are impressed enough with Love or Herbert that they just decide it’s to big of a risk. I don’t think he has to be able to play in 2020. Miami has indicated they are bringing Fitzpatrick back.     The biggest thing for me with TUA is what are the chances arthritis grows in that hip and cuts his career really short. Also he has had so many injuries which usually carries over to the pros. I hope for his sake and the colts sake he gets to work out before the draft and looks good.
