Its amazing to watch the absolute spiraling when there's no actual determination on whether he'll play or not and if any of the guys held out for "illness" are also in any danger of missing time.

Go away Covid... nobody likes you.

Let’s not forget Autry might still be invaluable Sunday. This is awful with Henry. What a horrible time to have this happen. Why couldn’t it of happened against a non AFC and divisional game. Who plays without Buckner or Autry. Lewis? This is not going to be pretty. We are going to get run all over.  We are going to be so worn out by the end of the game. Tech said the injury report would be long. Bet there are a bunch of close contacts who didn’t practice too. Let’s pray it’s just a close contact and he doesn’t have it. Not having Buckner for two weeks would be awful. Such bad timing. I hate covid. Offense is going to have to put up some points.

More pressure on the Offense to execute especially in the red zone. Titans D is worse then the Packers.

This isn't completely bad. The article says he was in close contact, not that he had it. He can still play if he tests negative before the game

I think god really hates the colts lol. No Autry or Buckner lol. We are going to get run over. The only good thing is TN is injure but that won’t make a difference with Henry. If Autry can’t go Lewis is 3 tech lol.

Colts should resign Sheldon Day.

We’ll be fine! Titans defense gives up 25 points. We have depth so it’s time for others to step up. If we control the clock Sunday the Colts should win. 

Titans had issues on special teams last time we played that gave us 14 points and a missed field goal. We cannot count on that being a factor again, especially if we are down two or three of our studs on defense.

Their punter is back also.

I was going off the tweet, but I might have mis-read it. Still, we don't know if Buckner will miss the game. We'll have to wait til he's tested again.

No if he tested positive he with no symptoms its ten days. If he has symptoms it’s 14 days which means two games.  What we done know if it was just s high risk contact. If it was it might be possible to be back Sunday depending on when the contact was.  This could be the game that takes us out of the playoffs if we lose. Offense is going to have to keep Henry off the field and score some pts. We also have a lot of bumps and bruises on that report. The only good thing is TN is down their best linebacker and are on to their third LT.

We dont know if he is high risk contact or not.

 

Even if he didn't test positive but is a high risk contact he has to miss 5 days.

 

We are 4 days out. 

 

 

Have to hope he isn't a high risk contact(most likely is). If so he will not be playing regardless of what his test say.

We don’t know when that contact was. It could of been Monday. So it’s a slim chance but still possible if it was just a contact. It really sucks this comes against a afc divisional opponent. Would of much rather this happened against a nfc team. If we are down rock, Blackmon, Autry, and Buckner we will get blown off the field.

Technically if they count today it will be a total of 5 days if he doesn't test positive

Since he was the only one I'm leaning that he was ruled a high risk close contact and they put him on the list before 1PM to make sure he makes the five days.  Hopefully we will have some clarity later tonight.  I would hope some reporter would be able to find out the details.

To quote Ralphy in the great A Christmas Story " Oh FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUDGE!"

 

I wonder, does the NFL now look to move this game?  They have seemed to do it for other teams.  This is a big one.  No, a HUGE one.  If Autry, Buckner, and Blackmon all miss...........oy vey.

One could hope.

 

Guess time will tell.

 

Would be a huge blow to be without him.

 

 

This has me all mad at the NFL at the moment.

 

They didn't lay down the hammer on the Titans early in the season when the completely jacked up the schedule and had workouts after told not to.

 

Got extra time for players to make it back, noa in the biggest game of the year(AFCS) they might benefit more......:flaming:

If they are actually positive they would only be able to move it to the end of the season. There is no where to move it to.

I think the rule might read like this... you take the day the player was exposed to the person that has or had Covid. He can return to the team if he has all negative test 5 days from the "contact day." So basically it means the earliest a player can return is the 6th day from when he was exposed. Now if the rule means you must have 5 negative tests , then Buckner is out for Sunday. 

The memo states that a club must place any player designated as a "high risk" close contact on the reserve/COVID-19 list upon such designation. Such player will remain on that list until at least five days have passed since the date on which the player was last in contact with the infected individual. The player will be permitted to resume club activities on the sixth day after such last exposure if all his PCR tests, including the fifth testing day, are negative.

The good news is we will have Braeden Smith and we are unlikely to commit that many holding calls again. 
Turay should also get more like 20-25 snaps this game. 

If Blackmon, Autry, Ya-Sin, and Buckner are all out, we are in some serious trouble.

    • Stafford has been very public about his number one goal:   Winning.   (His words, not mine).   He’s not going to want to leave because we want to pay him $25m instead of $30+ million.   The Colts give Stafford the best chance of winning.   Period.  Leaving the Colts for a money grab would be the worst look possible for him.  I don’t see that as a worry.  Honestly.    My bigger concern is the cost in draft picks to acquire him.  There may be a bidding war, which could prove very expensive.   At some point, I could see Ballard dropping out.   We will likely know in the next 6 weeks. 
    • He is 33 and has 2 years left on reasonable contract. After that you will have to give him a contract in the realm of what other top QBs are getting now and he will be getting older... So you will either have to pay big or lose him and this is while all our young pieces are moving out of their rookie contracts... So we will start losing some of them. So IMO IF we get Stafford this will be the golden window to try to go all in...  Use Stafford's best remaining years at the best contract you will have him at, to try to surround him with best talent we can get while our young player are still cheap. Later he will be older/worse on worse contract and our young studs we either be paid much more (less money to get reinforcement elsewhere) or will be gone.    So... Go all in NOW. This doesn't mean you concede the later years, but IMO the best chance we have are the next 2 years if we get Stafford. This is legitimate Superbowl contender if we can get one of the top receivers, a very good pass-rusher and some solid CBs. 
    • Odds are you can’t do all that because the salary cap is going down roughly $15-20 million.    We’re likely going to need more time.   I don’t understand the 2-year window reference?   Stafford likely has 5+ years left.   With a GM like Ballard, our window should remain open longer than that. 
    • My thoughts on trading for Stafford are crystalizing a bit... I've stated before that my favorite option is going to the draft trying to get your QB of the future, BUT ... If you go for Stafford, IMO you need to go all in. It should not be the final big move of the off-season if we get Stafford. You move money around and you do everything you can do to get: - Allen Robinson or Godwin or Kenny Golladay. - a legitimate DE in FA or trade - Rhodes back + maybe even one more corner.   It might become tight money wise but IMO you cannot go the Stafford route and do it halfway. You either go all the way or don't even try it... Just go get a QB from the draft and build around him for the future. We will have about 2 year window with Stafford on reasonable contract and we need to use that window...
