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.

    • That's fine, but I think buried in the ranking was the relative great performances of the later picks like Okerke, Willis, and Tell more than the earlier picks living up to....or exceeding...expectations.  How can they rank Ben and Parris very highly?  They hardly played.   Having the early picks exceeding expectations takes you closer to the SB than having your 4th and 5th rounders exceeding expectations.  JMO.
    • well tis the time of year where the Colts would be linked to most big name FA's because of cap space....though this would make sense. 
    • So it seems all the teams evaluators leave after the practices are over and watch the game from home. So everything that happens during the week seems to be more important then the actual game.
    • "One of the top free agents in 2020 will be Seattle Seahawks defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, and Clowney has stated a team's likelihood of Super Bowl contention is a key factor for his signing. WalterFootball.com has learned from league sources that the Indianapolis Colts are one of the teams are expected to make a run at signing Clowney. The Colts have a ton of salary cap space and money to spend, and they could use an impactful player on their defensive line. Clowney would also be a great scheme fit in Matt Eberflus' defense. Signing with Indianapolis would also give Clowney the opportunity to play the Texans twice per year, and going against his former team could be a nice perk to signing with Indianapolis. There could be a competitive market for Clowney, and his preference for Super Bowl contenders could rule out some teams, but sources tell me the Colts are going to be a team in serious pursuit of the star defensive end."   Would not hate this.  Chris Jones would be my first preference.  Would allow Colts to address other needs in the draft.   Joseph
    • I definitely agree with that last, but I will say that I'm still convinced that Jacoby Brissett is better than the fans here let on.  The guy was held back to at least some extent in the second half by a wave of injuries to key receivers.  We went into several games with Zach Pascal as our WR1.  I like pascal as a WR4, but he can't get separation against elite defensive backs.   I saw what Brissett could do when he had a healthy receiving unit in the first half, and it was pretty good.  Let's not forget that before the wheels fell off we were 6-2 at the half and Brissett was among the league leaders in touchdowns.  That went away when our receivers went away, which should come as a surprise to exactly no one.     We are WAY better than our 2019 record suggests we are.
