The Colts could save a lot of time and effort if they just listed every notable player on their team as questionable or worse. The Colts injury report looks like the VIP list for St. Elmo Steak House in Indianapolis — WRs Austin Collie (hand), Anthony Gonzalez (knee), Mike Hart (ankle) and Joseph Addai (neck) are all questionable or worse.
Nobody on the Colts injury list was listed as probable. Guess that organization has a ‘half-empty’ outlook. (And credit me for not going for a shot on QB Peyton Manning. I left that to Dave Dameshek.)
Collie completely practiced on Friday, but Gonzalez, Hart and Addai all sat out. Which is never a good sign. All three are expected to be out.
Collie is a decent play if he’s in the lineup, though he figures to be behind WRs Reggie Wayne and Pierre Garcon. RB Donald Brown figures to see all of the touches, but Javarris James is factored into the game plan.
But with all of the names on the list, as long as they keep Manning off that list — the Colts will be in good shape. At least during the regular season. (Sorry, could not resist.)
