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 .

Campbell has no injury history at OSU. I think he might of had a concussion but that was it

 

TY dedicates his season to luck then goes down with a calf. Weird stuff has happened to this team. 

Hard to get injured when 95% of your routes are slants against barely practice squad level players in college. He's showing he cant hang with the NFLs physicality so far

Perhaps we should look into different physicians because I’m with you, we have t handled injuries well for a long while now. Not sure who that falls on, medical or CB saying play through it. Idk 

I think beyond that. Remember when they kept saying Luck was going to play and ended up not playing for a year. Now this year players are going on IR becuase of injurys all of a sudden popped up. They should have rested them.

I totally agree. Campbell is made of glass. Colts already got Mack and Hooker lol. We don't need another glass sideline figurine for a football player. 

Campbell is such a disappointment when you consider some of the other guys Ballard could have snagged in the draft instead last year. 

I would be fine with Ballard staying away from drafting OSU guys for awhile.... (hooker, Lewis, Campbell, etc)

Maybe stop drafting Ohio State players. They all seem to end up hurt. Campbell, Lewis, Mewhort, AGon...I am sure there are more.

 

Edit: Forgot about Hooker as well. 

We do seem to have some bad injury luck with these kids.

If we had a good QB, we are likely in the playoffs already. It is not the lnjuries that have derailed us. 

I can pretty much agree with this. I’d even add into the mixture of poor performances on the play calling schemes. We aren’t scheming people open like so many other teams do against us. That’s disheartening really.

what the organization needs to do is stop making training camp family friendly and bust theses guys *ses and toughen them up. If you cant handle the work, you dont make the 53. no rest days. you can't go, you get cut. In the end, you either have one tough team that knows what is expected of them or no team with no false expectations.

Unfortunately the team can’t do that due to the players union. Campbell pulled his hammy in early training camp and missed most of it. Then he had an abdominal injury, broken hand, broken foot season over. I am starting to see a trend. Lol

    • Is that (Farley) the guy that had lumbar micro discectomy surgery  recently? Even if he does recover well and gets in condition quickly enough to make training camp, there will be teams that will still be wary.  The reason is longevity, and accelerated degenerative issues concerning his back. On the other hand, didn't a certain GM/Team select Bob Sanders in the 2nd round of a draft knowing his playing style would possibly (likely!) shorten his career? Likewise picture another team taking a LB with serious knee/nerve injury with foot drop? (Jaylon Smith).   There are pluses, and minuses, in taking such players.    
    • We've got some decent value at the 5 and dime store.   Great bargains Rhodes Moore   Good bargains TJ Carrie Wilson
    • They are talking about next year's picks, which one (either 1st or 2nd) is conditionally going to Philly. Doubt they can contractually use either in a trade for this year (unless it's with Philly). Perhaps there's contract language that says we can deal our 2nd, but if we do, Philly would automatically get our 1st.
    • What is his role?     So does everybody on the team who doesn't want to be traded because of whatever Easterby did not seeing things as well as Watson and 5 players who were let go by the team?  Why are the 5 seeing it correctly and the 150 not?      
    • Instead of trying to split the atom on how stats are measured, let's keep it simple and just apply basic logic.    Should we not expect a 31 year old to lose speed? Should we not expect a tiny guy who's losing his speed, to struggle getting the same separation he relied on all these years? Even if you disagree with the majority of fans (who think he's slowed), wouldn't the trained eyes of the coaches know better? And if TY still had it (and Rivers was at fault), wouldn't TY get a better/longer deal than 1 year / 8M? Should we believe TY's stats are simply wrong, while most of the other pass catchers are grading better at separation while getting the same balls, by the same QB? Are stats out to get TY, or is Philip just bad throwing to TY and good to everyone else? And nobody saying Rivers is great. But simply other pass catchers are grading better with Rivers, than TY. TY relied on his speed all these years (along with route running). He's losing that speed, and now has to rely on route running (for tough yards) and mismatches (seam and bad DBs) for the majority of his highlights. There's no mystery here. It's just getting harder for him. I really hope he can squeeze one more 1000 yard season out for the Colts.
