Eric Ebron Injured Reserve


Recommended Posts

Not sure if this is a TE deep draft but with our cap situation and CB's build through the draft approach. We might see a TE picked up with some draft capital in 2020 I think there are some decent FA TE's on the market as well. 

Hope Ebron gets well soon.

Luck made Ebron look great. Brissett made him look average.   What we need is a QB that can throw our WR and TE's open. Brissett won't throw the ball downfield, which is a big big probl

Contrary to the above posters, I hope hes played his last game as a Colt.

He rejuvenated his career here. He loves this place and the fans. I would attempt to sign him for maybe a short deal. Like 3 years. We have the money and are quickly losing all of our pass catchers. L

Wonder just how bad the ankles are or if he is just so frustrated and the coaches and FO had an enough of his demands. Hope that's not the case but the way he came on and blabbed to the press makes me wonder.

In Thursday game you could see he was walking very slow to the sidelines after plays. He was clearly in pain.He has been on the injury report several times this year with a ankle.

He was rarely on the injury report but he continued to play despite the fact he was obviously playing at less than 100% and he was still our best receiver behind TY.  And now he goes to IR.  Looks like he's an old school type of player who will try to play through the injuries instead of taking time off to let his injuries heal.  Now he needs surgery.  He was a pro bowler last year yet some fans want to show the 26 yr old the door.   Getting the surgery out of the way now should mean he would be ready to go for the start of camp.  Because of his age and past performance with us I can see Ballard bringing him back on a new deal.  He will most likely draft another TE as well and see what shakes out in camp.

You may be right but seems odd that with ankles that he can play on despite the pain would go from playing to IR, especially this time of year. Probably a stretch on my part but does make me wonder. Not a great trait for a Ballard locker room to spout like he did.

I think we could do better next year without him.    I'm sure there's some better TE in the draft who can catch and block consistently better than Ebron.  Might not be as fast, but there's some all around TE out there I'm sure.   I could sort of deal with the drops when Luck was here because he was producing big time.  It still irritated me though.  Now that Luck isn't here the drops increased and his game didn't improve.  He'll give you something every now and then.

Maybe he tried and just couldn’t do it anymore. Travis should do ok in his place. He looked good in the pre season. Maybe MO gets more passing opportunities. Maybe even Doyle gets more now.

I think Doyle should be able to finish his career here. He is steady and provides a good security blanket for the QB. Sign him for another 2 years or so.

The thing about Ebron is that he is what he is.  Drops were always going to be a thing with him, but in return you’d get some amazing, key plays.  Just the price of having Eric Ebron.  I think love him or hate him, though, he was an excellent signing that yielded dividends.  A shame his time with the Colts might end like this.

Ebron only came here because of Luck, and after seeing what Brissett turned out to be, who could blame him for being miserable this year? Probably need to get rid of Ebron, but it's not all his fault. WR injuries combined with this abomination of a QB we have have destroyed this offense. Instead of signing a fresh face, we replace Ebron with Travis. That's what I get for taking a break here. The more things change, the more they remain the same.

Can I get a link where Ebron said he came here because of Luck?

“The reason I came here is because of Andrew Luck, to keep it honest,” Ebron said after the Colts’ first team meeting of 2018. “It doesn’t really matter where I played or where I went, I just wanted a quarterback that I knew could get me the ball and pretty much work with me the way I knew that I needed to be worked with. And I think Andrew Luck was the perfect fit.”

If Travis is a good blocker that gives us three TE that can block. Maybe could be a big benefit with pass protection. Will be interesting to see how many snaps he gets. He should know the offense.

travis is not listed on the practice squad

He is probably the one guy that was furious with Luck. Luck loved to use his TE and it was a perfect fit for Eric. I would feel so screwed over. I feel really bad for him.

 

Colts worked out a bunch of TE last week so they knew this was coming.

Did he injure his ankle(s) when he kicked in Reich's door asking to be more involved in the offense?

 

Maybe just before that when he was stamping on the floor throwing a temper tantrum.

A lot of people excited about the Ross Travis signing.  Remember he was signed off the street.  No one wanted him on their practice squad.  I'm happy for him but I'm not expecting a lot of production.  

I've seen Travis do diddly poo with the Colts ever to be honest.

Definitely agree with Ebron being more awesome with Luck throwing him the ball. 

Every WR and TE performed better with Luck. Pascal was the only exception for a short time, but his totals and averages are going back south.

I don’t think anyone is excited to lose Ebron and have Travis. It’s all we have right now and hopefully he can make the most out of this opportunity. He knows the system so hopefully it won’t be a huge adjustmant. Hopefully we hear that DF and Campbell will be back Sunday so this won’t be a huge void.

face it luck quit

Luck, he's gone, and not hoping for his return. He's just a data point at this stage.

 

Doesn't mean folks will be blind to JB's negative impact on the passing O. The stat comparisons will remain, and won't go away.

 

Face it, JB simply hasn't been good. Most were cautious to begin with but willing to give him a chance. Those cautious folks are now starting to move on from JB. JB could still pull it out but his time is getting shorter and shorter.

I think Travis gives us more of a typical TE then Ebron. If he is a great blocker I could see him helping with some of the play action. Ebron will be missed but Travis gives us something different.

He is a threat in the pass game too. Now we get a 5 game look at him.

Wow. A lot of speculation there about his playing through injuries. We just plain don't know when, how serious and for how long. I can imagine all sorts of scenarios.

    • That sounds good.    I would be fine with 6-8 pm and 9-11 pm ET with a 5 minute window for picks, so 16 picks should be done in 120 minutes. It would be like the real draft starting Day 3, where they get only 5 minutes between picks.     Would you have time around the beginning of April to help moderate this along with me? If it is a small window of time, it is a smaller time commitment on my front and yours, so I like this idea.   I can ask @NFLfan @csmopar and @danlhart87 again if they would be willing to make themselves available for those small windows of time thus giving us plenty of options. Let us bring this thread back up then.
    • First of all, I'd say bad fit for us. He's a 3-4 DE. In our system he'd be a tweener, or maybe even a 3T.  Great against the run, average vs the pass. Very solid 3 down guy overall in a 3-4.   IMO, even if he was a fit, we don't need run D help, and he'd be too expensive. Overall just not the benefit and value we need.    
    • Here's what we did on another board a few years ago. Worked out pretty good. 1 Round per evening 2 windows each night... picks 1-16, and then 17-32 (I think it was 7p-8p and 9-10, but could have been 8-9 and 10-11). That way, guys new pretty much when they needed to be there, and only needed to pay attention for roughly an hour per day. Really not even that long. Also gave the mods some time between windows to tidy up. 3 minute clock hence the "flash" term. If you miss a pick, you drop 5 spots (basically giving them an extra 15 minutes). If they missed it a second time, they get bumped to the end of the round and have up to an hour before the next days round starts. If they miss that, they get best player based on their primary needs.  We had 3 threads going at once, and 3 moderators. One thread for the pick announcements and general comments, one with a constantly updated order and big board, and one to manage trades. The big board management was great in terms of keeping it going and checking off who is gone. We also published team needs, but I can't remember if we tracked it except for using it when folks missed their window. Only trades allowed are pick for pick(s) so very little approval needed. No picks for existing players (We did the mock post FA fury, I think we started about 2 weeks prior to the draft).
