Goodbye season.   Ballard hasn’t properly addressed the OT depth. Clark and Green.. just abysmal.    Hopefully Ballard knows he cocked it up.

Exactly. Geoff Schwartz adressed a similar question a year or two ago-   "What is the most difficult position switch for an offensive lineman to make on the O-line that the majority of peopl

i just wanna know how the heck you go into a game verse a division opp knowing full well that Taylor was taken from the game and not bring up any of our practice squad RB's Wilson even went down injuring his ribs and if it wasn't for him coming back we would have had only Hines the rest of the game what was our staff thinking???

Yeah regardless of if AC is out I think the Colts need to look at who they can bring in a LT. Despite the loss today you can't stop playing for a playoff spot. I don't see how you can move forward with Clark as your LT. (starter or back-up)

He also said Branden Smith was good to go last week and missed the game.

That’s true but it’s still better than him saying “it doesn’t look good”. Like I said it’s a little good news.  It doesn’t mean the Colts dodged the bullet though.

Can Pinter play RT and move smith to LT?

Can we move Braden smith to left tackle and anyone but Clark at right ?

 

I joked earlier this week that the above might be less crazy than some think.

Have Q play two positions then.  Ugh. 

 

Q could also play LT, and sub in for LG. We have better sub options at G than T.

I said it in another thread.  Ballard needs to sign a veteran tackle off a practice squad.  The quickest way to get help IMO.  No need to shuffle players around.  Clark won't cut it.  No messing around this late in the middle of a playoff push.

That would be good news.  He had one of these a few years ago and missed one game I think.  He’s tough cookie and if he can play he will.  AC is so underrated.

Hopefully a few rest days and a brace for a little extra protection and he's good to go.

If the mcl sprain isn’t bad he could play Sunday. His position wouldn’t be as hard as another position.

 

Chloe, OL and DL are among the most physical positions in all of sports - which is why those guys are so big.

 

And they are transferring enormous amounts of energy through their various joints (including the knee) as they anchor down and battle with 275+ lb elite athletes that can run sub-5 second 40-yard dashes.

 

And that's in addition to the knee having to support AC's weight as he moves laterally in his pass sets or drives forward when run blocking.

 

All that said, if it's a sprain, he would be able to play with a brace, but he may need to sit out for a while until the swelling goes down.  If he is able to play this season, Sunday would be highly unlikely.  May be 1-2 weeks, at minimum.

    • Colts are a tough one to predict again like last year.  I could see us winning the division, the titans are running a pretty good team back without a lot of changes.  This comes down to how much you believe in Wentz right now   The Jaguars are hard to predict this year too, the Texans are looking bad.   I like to wait until after preseason to give a prediction
    • I expect Houston to get a comparable base salary to Clowney. $7.5 m or so. He’s worth that. Likely for just one year. At this point, I seriously doubt any team will risk two years. Getting old ain’t fair, but fair’s got nothing to do with it.  I also suspect Houston won’t be signed until after Day 2 of the draft. Teams will take inventory of their draft haul at that point and that’s when I expect the Colts to snag him. Prediction: One year, $7.0m with bonuses to make it $ 7.75m if met. Perhaps a team option for same price in 2022.
