I wonder if Bobby is just out a week or two and then plays with a cast or something

Apparently nobody's been ruled out for next week, yet.

 

Speed's injury is his elbow, getting scans today.

Yeah, but as soon as his thumb hits a helmet, he's over with fresh off surgery.

 

His thumb/hand/wrist should be wrapped in a cast, with 3/8" soft padding (as required) over it.

 

He won't be grabbing any picks, but he'll have a nice little club.

they have casts .  these cast are as hard as cement .  he is not hurting his hand .  people play all the time in hand clubs .   you dont use your grip to tackle .  The only time you need to grab is when chasing a player from behind .  He is not a wide receiver .

unless he broke his thumb , which it looks like he did not the only thing he needs to protect are stitches. now they have stitches that do not need to be removed they just wear off .   much less intrusive like glue , just put a piece over his thumb to protect his thumb and he can still grip with his hand like normal .

I am pretty sure darius is fine .  I saw him dancing on video , he looks okay .  I think i was just a precaution keeping him out if it was a playoff game i am sure he would of came back in .    Even ej speed a elbow is not that bad , nfl players have elbow guards on all the time . Ray lewis played his super bowl season with a injured elbow ,and wore a guard on his elbow the whole post season .

i'd rather slide big Q out there and put clark at G.

even though clark was really bad the first couple times he played with the colts ,  just like mo allie cox he has gotten so much better and it kept him from getting cut .  He made improvements to the point he beat out joe haeg  who was a very solid back up tackle .  ballard loves clark because he has the measurables to be a elite tackle , he was just raw and needed to work on his craft and get more time in .   the colts have been pugging him in this season and he has played very well .  I think people get scared after seeing a player struggle in one or two games early .  Rock ya sin struggled early last year got burned then the last half of the season bounced back and looks even better this year .  Clark has improved and will shock people  .

The proof is in the pudding.  We might just find out Sunday if this is true.   I hope you are right.

I don't think he beat out Haeg, Haeg was a quality back up across all 5 positions and only left so he could start.

he is a back up on the bucs  never played even a snap for them and took a small contract

Right, but we told him he would not start here, so he chose to go to Tampa where he was given a chance to start, but failed to win in camp. This was widely discussed and reported last spring.

if ballard thought clark was trash i doubt he does not look for depth at tackle . i trust ballard and he has faith in clark

Damn LB core took a hit yesterday good news none seem long term.

And I thought Ballard was nuts for keeping 7 LB on the initial 53-man roster.  reminds me as to why I try to stay humble when expressing my opinions on this forum. They know a lot more about football than I ever will.

It was for STs, not really for LB itself.

I'm sure we'll see another "Ballard is a genius" comment though lol.

I wouldn't be surprised if AC rests this week puts on a protective vest on Sunday and takes a pain killer injection and plays.  I don't think he would be the first to do it.  

 

Hopefully the doc doesn't puncture his lung.

Unless it's a nerve block, that won't happen.... And that's a small risk everytime anyone gets a nerve block in that region....it happened finally to an NFL qb, after god knows how many successful times, so everyone is scared of it now ..lol

im not worried about a thumb injury with bobby still can tackle and play .  costonzo is the biggest loss

Costonzo's loss would be really bad.  I think he's a fine player, but he has a foot out the door.  I was hoping to see a draft of another LT this year.  This could make us look really ugly, if he is out.  

 

PR is used to pressure, but man.

What does the bolded have to do with his injury?  Or really anything?

    • Carson Wentz for a $1 doesn't even look appealing.
    • https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/free-agents/all/cornerback/   I get what you're saying and tend to agree.  There may be some cuts so the list in the link above may not be 100% complete... but we have a pretty good idea of who is available in FA (another factor is if any of those guys get franchise tagged).     On the list above Xavier Rhodes, most of the guys are 29 or older (the exceptions being Mike Hilton 27, Michael Davis 26 and Mackensie Alexander 28).  So, not exactly a lot of quality 'young' guys out there (as of now anyway).  Several of the guys above Rhodes who are 29 are older also missed time in 2020 to injury (Josh Norman, Richard Sherman, DJ Hayden, Hilton, Alexander, Kevin Johnson, Brian Poole).  Then, Patrick Peterson is same age as Xavier, but he made >$11 mil more than him last year.   Ballard definitely seems to prefer taller guys on the outside CB spots... Hilton at 5'9" doesn't really fit Ballard's prototype... Davis at 6'2" seems to, and Alexander at 5'10" is kind of border line.  Ronald Darby (27) right below Rhodes is 5'11" so another borderline guy.     Obviously, Rhodes will have some ability to test the market... but I doubt he's going to be getting any offers which are significantly more than what we paid him last year.     Rhodes has familiarity with our DB coach from prior to Indy.  He fits our scheme well.  He played well here in 2020 and we likely won't have to break the bank on him.  I don't know we'll find a better option in FA based on who is available now.   CB is definitely a position where we need help (especially if we lose Rhodes)... but we also need to do something to address the QB issue, the OT void left by AC's retirement, overall OL depth, and DL (especially with Houston and Autry both being FAs and both being on the wrong side of 30).  More likely than not, we need to do something to address the WR position and TE position (could be as easy as resigning MAC and Burton).  We only have so many draft picks, and my guess is we'll go OT early... plus, CB is one of the toughest positions to thrive at as a rookie.     Ideally, we'd get younger across the board.. but we probably won't be able to do that... I could be wrong, but my guess it that we'll bring Rhodes back on another short term deal (maybe 2 years this time).
