Evening Player News -10/21

 

Dallas Clark (Wrist)– Is expected to have Surgery on his wrist. He plans on meeting with the Colts on Thursday night to discuss his options, but it doesn’t look good for Clark. Some reports have said he could be out for the year. Stay Tuned. The Colts have a bye this week, but go pick up TE Jacob Tamme who will fill in Clark’s role, as we’ve seen, Manning makes everyone better.

 

Malcolm Floyd (hamstring)– Is out for Week 7 against the Patriots. Also Legedu Naanee hasn’t practiced all week so Patrick Crayton is looking like he will be the #1 target alongside Craig Davis who is banged up himself, but will probably play. Crayton is a nice pickup for this week against the Pats spotty Pass D.

 

Austin Collie (Hand)–  Had surgery on his hand today. There is no timetable for his return as of right now, but you have to figure it’s going to be at least a month.

 

Antonio Gates (Toe)– Is going to be a full-blown gametime decision for Sunday with his sprained Toe. Said Gates, “I’ve been in a situation where I didn’t think I’d play and then I played. And I’ve been in other situations, well, there actually haven’t been any other situations.” Stay tuned on this, but start prepping for other options just in case. Jacob Tamme, Ben Watson, Jermaine Gresham are good replacement options for this week if you need somebody off the wire. Ben Watson would be the guy I would grab.

 

David Garrard (Concussion)– Has not practiced all week and will be out this weekend, also Trent Edwards might not even play. Go pick up the Chiefs Defense! My Aunt Turgel will be starting for the Jags on Sunday.

 

Vince Young (Knee, Ankle)– Didn’t practice again Thursday, but Fischer has said he doesn’t need to practice in order to start this weekend against Philly. I expect Vince to start over Kerry this week, the Titans are just being safe with Vince.

 

Donald Driver (Quad)– Says he will play this week. Will see what happens, but he should be Ok. I doubt Driver will miss such a big matchup against Minnesota.

 

Pierre Thomas (Ankle)– Hasn’t practiced all week and is once again extremely questionable for Sunday. It looks like Chris Ivory will be the featured back once again with Ladell Betts serving on 3rd and passing downs.

 

Chris Cooley (Concussion)– Practiced on a limited basis today and looks to be fine for Sunday.

 

Darren Mcfadden- (Hammy)– Returned to practice in a limited fashion today, but is still questionable for Sunday. Stay tuned. Either way go trade Mcfadden while he still has some value left. He’s no bet to stay healthy even if he takes back the majority of the carries from Bush. Plus his schedule will not be as easy as it was before he got hurt.

 

Bruce Gradkowski (Shoulder)– Was limited in practice today and coach Tom Cable has not ruled him out for Sunday. I don’t think he’s gonna play this week as he was unable to throw anything downfield, he will probably be out at least one more week but stay tuned. If he’s out again downgrade Louis Murphy and Zach Miller.
