Gary Brackett suffers hand injury against Packers

In a portion of the season during which there are no wins or losses, the Colts may have suffered the only actual kind of loss that applies during the exhibition games.

A player to injury.

Middle linebacker Gary Brackett, a key free agent whom the Colts retained after the 2009 season, injured his hand during Thursday night’s game against the Packers.  X-rays are being administered. 

The Colts lead in the second quarter, 17-7.

    Looked just like any other play, in the pile making the tackle. Then another Colt comes in and his helmet smashes into the wrist area of Gary Brackett.
    Let’s hope it’s just a bad bruise and was taken out just because it’s the preseason.

    Florio are we allowed to officially call this umpire garbage the peyton manning rule, this is a mess, and it appears to be directed at this team. I hate everything about the colts but this is total garbage and ruining the competitive nature of the game. Refs shouldn’t be seen or heard, put that guy on a treadmill until he can get his a$$ outta there b4 the snap. Illegal snap is the most pathetic penalty i’ve heard, kind of disappointed peyton didnt slug that ref.

    OUCH!! Broken forearm.
    Calling Pat Angerer……..calling Pat Angerer…….
    I think the Colts will be fine. Depth just took a hit, however.

    @Jeff- I agree. That rule seems to take some of the urgency out of the game. Gonna kill the no huddle..

    a 59-24 loss doesn’t matter? really?
    when the opposing team dismantles you with their second string players, it doesn’t matter? really?
    when the THIRD string takes the field and you still walk away 35 points down, it doesn’t matter? really?
    tell me again about that hand injury.

    Where’s the update to the score? To busy penning another Viking update?

    What we learned tonight in the two games -
    1 – Even when the defense thinks it’s got it in the bag and sucks as a result, the Patriots have enough depth to make a great game of it.
    2 – The Rams may be better than everyone thinks they are.
    3 – The Packers were minor darkhorses to make the SB this year – scoring 59 points is a statement regardless of context.
    4 – The Colts are a Peyton Manning injury away from falling back to the post-Ghost To The Post era when they had just five non-losing seasons in 21 years – and I expect teams to stop playing Peyton scared and to start punching him in the face.

    Yes, that score means nothing, really. The Colts never do well in the preseason. Hopefully Brackett is not out too long, but we’ll be fine with the depth we have until he comes back.
    Go Colts!

    This should actually be called the Brett Favre rule. They moved the umpire back there so that two guys could help Brett up after every play, and one could adjust his pads and jersey while the other wipes the sweat from his brow.

    No, it doesn’t matter dumbass.
    The Colts went 1-3 last year in preseason then won 14 in a row.
    They never even TRY to win games that do not count.
    Why would anyone?

    ===============================
    It means something to these packer fan turds ADX.
    You should have heard them after they dismantled the Cards in the 3rd preseason game last year.
    It was all Super Bowl talk. Except they took a shit in the WC game.
    Be thankful you only have to read their tripe maybe once per year. being ikings fan, I have to see it on a daily basis.
    By the way, i totally agree with you, it’s called the preseason for a reason.

    If you are experiencing muscle contraction, tension, a abnormal growth, pain or weakness; hand surgery is necessary. During hand surgery Hand Specialist Los Angeles will evaluate what is causing the problem and either mend bones or tendons back together, make an incision to release all the fluids or pressure in the area.
