There was an article published two days ago in the Indianapolis Star about how Colts linebacker Clint Session was finally healthy and playing like it.
That makes the following news all the more remarkable: Session played through a dislocated elbow and a fractured forearm on Monday night against the Texans, according to Jason La Canfora of NFL Network. Seriously. Session had ten tackles in the game.
It’s unclear what Session’s status will be going forward, but it’s yet another injury hit to the Colts. Philip B. Wilson writes that “speculation is rampant” wide receiver Anthony Gonzalez could be out a while. (Sad story. Gonzalez injured his knee again and hasn’t finished a game healthy since 2008.)
Mike Hart, who was emerging at running back, sat out practice Wednesday with an ankle injury. Joseph Addai is missing. One bit of good news is that it appears Austin Collie has a chance to return to action earlier than expected this week from his thumb injury.
Maybe Collie heard about Session’s heroics and got inspired.
