The Indianapolis Colts won’t have Ahmad Bradshaw this weekend

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General Colts Chatter,Injury Reports,Needs to Pick It Up by joelapinski on Friday 27 September 2013 at 7:15 pm

The Colts will be without 27-year old RB Ahmad Bradshaw for this weekend’s game against the Jaguars due to a neck injury.  Bradshaw has played in all three games for the Colts so far this year and he has carried the ball 41 times for 186 yards (4.5 ypc) with 2 TD runs.  He has also caught 7 passes for 42 yards (6.0 avg) so far this year.  It will be up to 22-year old RB Trent Richardson to carry the load in the running game this weekend for the Colts.  He carried the ball 13 times for 35 yards (2.7 ypc) with 1 TD run in his Colts’ debut last weekend against the 49ers.  This is the reason why the Colts dealt for Richardson, so they need him to step up this Sunday.

The Indianapolis Colts lose Dwayne Allen for the rest of the 2013 season

Blogged under Big Colts News,Bloglockers,Front Page,General Colts Chatter,Injury Reports,Needs to Pick It Up by joelapinski on Wednesday 18 September 2013 at 6:12 pm

The Colts have lost 23-year old TE Dwayne Allen for the rest of the 2013 season due to hip surgery.  Allen played in 1 game for the Colts this year and he caught 1 pass for 20 yards and it went for a TD.  Allen has played in 17 games in his first two years with the Colts and he has caught 46 passes for 541 yards (11.8 avg) with 4 TD grabs.  24-year old Coby Fleener will need to step up now that he’s the main man at TE for the Colts in 2013.  Fleener has played in 2 games for the Colts so far this year and he has caught 5 passes for 76 yards (15.2 avg) with 1 TD grab.  Fleener has now played in 14 games in his first two years with the Colts and he has caught 31 passes for 357 yards (11.5 avg) with 3 TD grabs.  Fleener was Andrew Luck’s teammate at Stanford, so they will likely be on the same page quite a bit in 2013.

The Indianapolis Colts lost Donald Thomas for the rest of the 2013 season

The Colts have lost 27-year old starting left guard Donald Thomas for the rest of the 2013 season due to a torn quadriceps tendon.  Thomas started both games for the Colts this year.  He has now played in 45 games (23 starts) in his first six years in the NFL.  He was one of the Colts biggest signings in free agency.  22-year old rookie Hugh Thornton will replace Thomas in the starting lineup.  He played in both of the Colts first two games off the bench.  He was a 3rd round pick (#86 overall) in last April’s NFL Draft for the Colts.  The Colts drafted Thornton with the idea that he would start for them some day, they just didn’t think that day would be in Week #3 of the 2013 NFL season.

UPDATE:  The Colts have officially placed Donald Thomas on the Injured Reserve List.

The Colts have lost 23-year old RB Vick Ballard for the rest of the 2013 season.  He has been placed on the Injured Reserve List.  He tore his ACL in yesterday’s practice.  This is a huge blow to the Colts’ running game.  Ballard rushed for 63 yards on 13 carries (4.8 ypc) and he caught 1 pass for -5 yards against the Raiders last weekend.  Ballard has now played in 17 games (12 starts) in his first two years with the Colts and he has carried the ball 224 times for 877 yards (3.9 ypc) with 2 TD runs.  He has also caught 18 passes for 147 yards (8.2 avg) with 1 TD grab for the Colts so far in his career.  27-year old Ahmad Bradshaw will take over as the Colts’ starting RB.  He carried the ball 7 times for 26 yards (3.7 ypc) and he caught 1 pass for 7 yards last weekend against the Raiders.  26-year old Donald Brown will be the Colts’ new #2 RB moving forward.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General Colts Chatter,Needs to Pick It Up by admin on Thursday 20 December 2012 at 10:39 pm

The Colts need 23-year old QB Andrew Luck to step up the last couple of weeks of the regular season against the Chiefs in K.C. this weekend and at home next weekend in a re-match with the Texans.  The Colts are 2-1 so far in December and they have scored 79 points in those games, but Andrew Luck has not played that well.  He has completed only 53 of 115 passes (46.1%) for 773 yards with 7 TD passes and 5 INTs so far this month.  He has also carried the ball 10 times for 50 yards (5.0 ypc) so far in December.  The Colts need him to be more accurate the last two weeks of the regular season.  Luck has now played in 14 games so far this year and he has completed 308 of 564 passes (54.6%) for 3,978 yards with 20 TD passes and 18 INTs (75.5 QB Rating).  He has also carried the ball 51 times for 233 yards (4.6 ypc) with 5 TD runs so far this year.

The Indianapolis Colts need Andrew Luck to get back on the right track

23-year old rookie QB Andrew Luck needs to forget all about last weekend’s debacle in New England.  The Colts are still 2-1 in November so far and they have scored 74 points this month.  Luck has completed 75 of 124 (60.5%) passes in November so far, good for 994 yards with 4 TD passes and 4 INTs.  He has also carried the ball 9 times for 20 yards (2.2 ypc) with 2 TD runs so far this month.  Luck has now played in 10 games overall this year for the Colts and he has completed 235 of 412 passes (57%) for 2,965 yards with 12 TD passes and 12 INTs (77.2 QB Rating).  Luck has also carried the ball 35 times for 163 yards (4.7 ypc) with 5 TD runs so far this year.  The Colts are only going to get to the playoffs if Luck can lead them there.

CB Vontae Davis is out for the Indianapolis Colts this weekend

Blogged under Big Colts News,Bloglockers,Front Page,General Colts Chatter,Injury Reports,Needs to Pick It Up by admin on Friday 16 November 2012 at 3:13 am

24-year old CB Vontae Davis is out for this weekend’s game against the Patriots due to a knee injury.  Davis has played in 5 games for the Colts so far this year and he has 19 tackles and 1 pass defensed.  25-year old Cassius Vaughn will take over as one of the starting CBs for the Colts this weekend.  He has played in 9 games for the Colts so far this year and he has 27 tackles and 2 passes defensed.  The Colts will be without both of their starting CBs this weekend (Vontae Davis and Jerraud Powers), so the defense could be in big time trouble against Tom Brady and his receivers on the Patriots this Sunday.

The Indianapolis Colts place CB Jerraud Powers on I.R.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General Colts Chatter,Injury Reports,Needs to Pick It Up by admin on Thursday 15 November 2012 at 10:08 pm

The Colts have placed 25-year old CB Jerraud Powers on Injured Reserve due to a toe injury, ending his 2012 season.  Powers played in 8 games for the Colts this year and he had 40 tackles, 1 interception, 8 passes defensed and 1 tackle for a loss.  He has now played in 42 games in his first four years with the Colts and he has 210 tackles, 33 passes defensed, 6 interceptions (one returned for a TD), 11 tackles for a loss, 1 forced fumble and 1 fumble recovery.  26-year old Darius Butler will take over for Powers in the starting lineup.  He has played in 4 games for the Colts so far this year and he has 11 tackles, 3 passes defensed, 2 interceptions (one returned for a TD) and 1 fumble recovery.  The Colts better hope that Butler is up for the challenge.

The Indianapolis Colts lose Donald Brown for the next 2-3 weeks

Blogged under Big Colts News,Bloglockers,Front Page,General Colts Chatter,Injury Reports,Needs to Pick It Up by admin on Wednesday 10 October 2012 at 9:09 pm

The Colts will be without 25-year old RB Donald Brown for the next 2-3 weeks after undergoing knee surgery this week.  He has played in 4 games for the Colts so far this year and he has carried the ball 60 times for 239 yards (4.0 ypc) with 1 TD run.  Brown has also caught 3 passes for 47 yards (15.7 avg) so far this year.  22-year old rookie Vick Ballard will move into the starting lineup to replace Brown while he is out of action.  Ballard has played in 4 games for the Colts so far this year and he has carried the ball 21 times for 42 yards (2.0 ypc).  He has also caught 1 pass for 4 yards so far this year.

The Indianapolis Colts lose head coach Chuck Pagano indefinitely

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General Colts Chatter,Injury Reports,Needs to Pick It Up by admin on Monday 1 October 2012 at 9:39 pm

Coach Pagano will be celebrating his 51st birthday tomorrow in the hospital as he has been diagnosed with leukemia.  He went to the doctors during the bye week and that is when they found out he was sick.  This is a bad break for Pagano, as he was really getting the Colts to play decent football in his first shot as a NFL head coach.  Here’s to hoping he will have the full recovery that doctors are projecting for him.  Offensive coordinator Bruce Arians will take over as the interim head coach until Pagano is ready to return to coaching.  Arians has done a decent job with rookie Andrew Luck and the offense so far this year.  Now he will also have to concern himself with defense and special teams.
