Comical. Can’t wait until this year is over. Sucks watching Brown, Samuel, Metcalf, and McLaurin killing it and our guy can’t stay healthy 

The colts and us fans need a fresh start in 2020.This was a very tough year .

Anybody else starting to think our IR “team” could possibly beat our healthy one in a game.

 

on a side note, im not sure why he wasnt shut down prior to last week.  Maybe Hilton should sit too.

I bet the fact we are just about eliminated has something to do with it .We fired our last shots Sunday for 2019

I would normally say this sucks, but we haven’t ever really seen his potential because . . . 
 

. . . shocker, he’s always hurt.  The only thing he has proven is that he struggles mightily to make it through the violence and intensity of an NFL game.

He has size also and no injury history so what a weird situation. Hopefully he regroups for next year.

Had such high hopes for P. Campbell this year.

 

WR group is still a major issue. We need to keep drafting receivers before T.Y. is done, otherwise we'll have absolutely no receives to rely on. We'll still have receivers, just not any real good ones.

Campbell did not have a history of injuries. With the colts luck this year no matter who was here probably would of got injured.

Campbell has every bit of talent Brown has. Now he just needs to stay healthy. We have always had the worst luck with injuries.

the majority of these injuries are broken bones,  you can't "train" to prevent these....Colts have been murdered by broken bones this year. 

 

Shhhh.... don't upset the narrative.  Broken bones falls squarely on the strength and conditioning staff.  Plyometrics and whatnot.  Pliability.  Et cetera.  Ballard's fault!  Bad play calling!  It's the team's lack of killer instinct that's causing these injuries.  I don't see the Patriots with several broken bones.  We suck.

Isn't it four? Unless they don't count a sports hernia as an injury? Hamstring, hernia, hand, foot...

Really, really hope he can get/stay healthy next year. He's had one of the most snake bitten years ever.

I think he left out the hamstring because it happened in TC.

    • Oh I know. I am talking about performance level if he comes back.    Peters' injury was in March...and he actually tore it twice I think. 
    • Is that to give him an extra day to rip his achilles?!
    • If, for some reason, he can't go, do you think the Colts might have a 'split' contract (amount) on his P5 salary written in?  I expect he will be on the active/PUP pre-season, and very possibly to start the regular season on reserve/PUP list (missing the first 6 games.  But that just me and my expectations.  I want to be more optimistic, but a Mid August return in football shape is way to rosy for me.         I do not trust Rapoport (nor his source) on this projection on Fishers return status. I caution those that do, do not be upset and angry if he isn't 'ready' by mid August.     Keep an eye out for active (summer/training camp) and possibly later, the reserve (reg. season), PUP lists.     Hopefully he can and will be 100%. Will make Colts fans very happy. But mark me down as he might be ready mid-late October, and will be at 75-80%.  Even with a great surgeon, perfect operation, and of the charts rehab, you can't rush biology. IE:, the low blood supply necessary for healing, the muscle atrophy that occurs, etc...   My feeling is he might be end up being 'cleared for full activity' in/by end of July, but it may take as long as another 3 months or more (ask @TomDiggs) of football drills/practice just to get somewhat back into playing shape by 9 months. And I feel that even that may be still too early and could be a contributing reason why football players that do return also have notably decreased performance during the year following their return. Cleared for activity and cleared to play are two totally separate things.   Ran across this, to go with all of the other studies discussed in another { Left Tackle(Leno,Fisher,Okung?)/Sam Tevi at LT (MERGE) }  thread-   “Seventy-eight Achilles tendon ruptures were identified in professional football players during the 2010-2015 NFL seasons. 58% of these injuries occurred during the preseason. Of those that suffered an Achilles tendon rupture, 26% did not ever return to play in the NFL. Players who did return to play in the NFL took an average of 9 months to recover after the date of injury. Across all positions, there was a net decrease in power ratings by 22% and a net decrease in approximate value by 23% over 3 years following player return after Achilles tendon rupture. Across all positions, running backs saw the biggest decrease in production with a 78% decrease over 3 years post-injury in both power ratings and approximate value.”   The fact they signed him gives hope he will contribute, at some point. When and how ell are the questions.
