According to Phil B. Wilson of the Indy Star, . Therefore, no report will be available until tomorrow. What we DO know, however, is that neither Kelvin Hayden, Daniel Muir nor Clint Session was in the locker room today. Again according to Phil B., , but nothing is official.
Interestingly, we do have some information about the Jets’ practice, courtesy of Lisa Zimmerman:

DE Trevor Pryce (hip)
S James Ihedigbo (knee/ankle)
DT Sione Pouha (back)
CB Darrelle Revis (hamstring)
LB Bryan Thomas (ankle)
RT Damien Woody (knee)
QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder)
UPDATE 3: Phil B announces the end of Jerraud Powers’ season:
confirm signing of RB Dominic Rhodes and place CB Jerraud Powers (arm surgery) on season-ending IR.
UPDATE 2: Paul Kuharsky, who covers the AFC South for ESPN, suggests that Powers then play with it.
UPDATE: We now know that Powers has a broken bone in his right forearm. It is still undetermined whether this will land Powers on IR, but he will definitely be out for several weeks.
Fresh off a heart-breaking loss to the Cowboys in overtime, the Colts may now be reeling with another loss… this one to injury. Indy Star writer Phil B. Wilson just about Jerraud Powers’ status:
Hate to pile on, but I’m hearIng CB Jerraud Powers has serious arm injury. If so, he’s likely done for year.
Coltzilla will bring fresh news as we hear what the injury is.
Injury Status Update: Cowboys v. Colts
Phil Richards of the Indy Star provides some updates:
- MLB Gary Brackett was “very encouraged” by his progress and feels good to go for Sunday
- According to Coach Caldwell, LT Charlie Johnson “will be fine,” and just needed to rest a couple of days.
- WR Austin Collie has not yet been medically cleared
Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas also that Cowboys WR Dez Bryant hurt his left ankle in practice and has been limited due to back issues. He is listed as probable, but may be replaced on punt return duty.
Colts Claim Second-Year Running Back Andre Brown Off Waivers
Mike Chappell of the Indy Star is reporting that the Colts have signed second-year running back Andre Brown off of waivers from the Denver Broncos. Brown entered the league as a fourth round draft pick in 2009 (New York Giants), and received attention from a lot of Colts fans who considered him a solid option as a bruising change-of-pace to Joseph Addai. Unfortunately, his rookie season ended when he tore his Achilles tendon, and that he has not been able to stick in a Broncos backfield that has struggled to get anything going this season is not a shining endorsement.
Still, as he entered the 2009 draft I compiled a full scouting report on Brown, comparing him to fellow 2009 rookie Rashad Jennings who is now the primary backup to Maurice Jones-Drew for the division rival Jacksonville Jaguars. To this point, who will be released to make room for Brown is unknown. His signing is not good news for Joseph Addai’s injury. Read more about Andre Brown after the break.
*NOTE – Brown does have some NFL return experience, which makes it possible that his signing has less to do with Addai and more to do with Colts returner Kenny Moore. More >
Thursday Injury Report, Chiefs v. Colts
Posted by Greg Cowan in 2010 Regular Season | 386 views
It was nice of Brett to fill in for me on Wednesday, but the 893 emails I got requesting I take over again spoke volumes. Don’t fret, folks, I’m back. Here’s your Thursday update, you may want to have a trashcan or waterproof bag nearby:
Colts Wide Receiver Anthony Gonzalez Upset
Indy Star writer Mike Chappell interviewed Colts wide receiver Anthony Gonzalez following the release of the Colts official 2010 depth chart. From the interview, it is clear that Gonzalez is disappointed that he was unable to win his starting role back from Pierre Garçon, who replaced him after he suffered a season-ending knee injury in the first quarter of the home opener a season ago.
“All I wanted was an opportunity to compete. That’s it. That’s what I was promised. I’m probably not the person to ask, really. Whether a job is open or competition takes place, is something that is determined by coaches, not players.”
Who would not be upset with the outcome? It is clear that NFL players work very hard to make a living and even clearer that players working hard to return from season-ending injuries have job security and their NFL futures riding on the line. It only makes sense that Gonzalez would want to come out of camp as the starter and to feel like the time he had to prove himself was shorter than he would have liked.
Colts Cut Defensive Tackle Marlon Favorite
Mike Chappell of the Indy Star also reports that the Colts have waived defensive tackle Marlon Favorite. Favorite made a solid play late in the Bengals game but it was too little too late. Coltzilla wishes Favorite the best of luck moving forward.
Colts Cut Veteran Offensive Tackle Adam Terry
Mike Chappel of the Indy Star is reporting the the Colts have also waived veteran offensive tackle Adam Terry. Terry struggled through training camp and the preseason with more leg issues. Coltzilla wishes Terry the best, as this might be the end of his NFL career.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweeted that the Colts would like to bring Terry back after week 1, when his contract would no longer be guaranteed for the entire season.
Colts Performance vs. Packers Ugly, Do Not Panic
The Indianapolis Colts experienced déjà vu in their preseason visit to Green Bay. The last time the teams met — week 7 of the 2008 season — the Colts played poorly and were thoroughly defeated by the Packers 34-14. Their visit this season was much the same, only with a more lopsided 59-24 defeat.
There is no way to sugarcoat the disappointment fans, coaches, and the team feels after imploding in their 2010 dress rehearsal preseason game. There were too many mistakes. The play was too sloppy. The injuries to players like Gary Brackett, Joseph Addai, Tony Ugoh, and Jacob Lacey were the exact opposite of the kind of outcome fans needed to blow-off the shoddy performance and look forward to the future.
In the face of all this, fans should still not panic.
Colts Tight End Tom Santi Placed on Waived/Injured List
CBS Sports Rapid Reports is reporting that the Colts have placed third year tight end Tom Santi on the waived/injured list. This is a rather frustrating development, as I thought Santi had a great deal of talent and a bright future if he could stay on the field. Note: Phil B. Wilson of the Indy Star suggested in a tweet that the move was made to make room for Jerry Hughes, who signed earlier today.
The news does narrow the training camp competition at tight end, however, and places Gijon Robinson back on the bubble. Before, I was relatively sure that Robinson was going to lose his roster spot (he still might) because the three other tight ends on the team either had more potential or showed more skill in their limited opportunities.
