Dallas Clark has a “significant” leg injury

The Colts have their most winnable game in a while Sunday at home against the Jaguars.

They will have to try to win it without the services of tight end Dallas Clark.  Coach Jim Caldwell says Clark’s leg injury is “significant” and will last “more than a week” according to Phillip B. Wilson of the Indianapolis Star.

The same is true for backup tight end Brody Eldridge’s hand injury.  It’s possible that Clark’s season could be in jeopardy.

Clark was only able to play in six games last year.  He has 287 yards with two touchdowns this year, and has struggled with drops.

It’s hard to imagine the Colts cutting Clark, but he will be 33 years old next year and is due $4.53 million.  At some point, the team may run out of patience with his injuries or ask him to take a pay cut.

    “The Colts have their most winnable game in a while Sunday at home against the Jaguars.” Well, they would need some sort of offense to pull that off. The Jags D is pretty darn good.

    oh no….the colts may now only win 1 game instead of 2 this year. as with everything else colts-related this year, this is a non story.

    When you are throwing the season there are no winnable games.

    Now that the colts are comfortably leading the race for the first pick next year watch them put everyone on the IR to solidify their spot.

    The Colt’s have a “significant” problem all around…

    You win Colts. You’re FAR worse than us. Well played. Well played.

    Team full of quitters.

    One of the Polians calls you to his office:


    “Time to shut it down for the season, Dallas. You need to get healthy”

    “But Mr. Polian, I just had a cramp!”

    “Now, now, Dallas, we have to take care of you”

    Dallas is done in Indy I’m afraid. Tamme is more than capable replacement and comes a lot cheaper

    the players want a new coach and they are playing like it

  13. jasonculhane says: Nov 7, 2011 2:41 PM

    No he don’t, its just time to shut it down and rest their starters:)

    no reason to keep good players on the field…
    – Isray strongly inferred they are suck4luck and its now a real probability

    Manning will take the $50m guarantee and retire and Luck will start game 1 next year

    What a shocker. The Colts could win a game, but suddenly their #1 weapon’s “season is in jeopardy.”

    Are we sure Wayne, Garcon, and Addai haven’t gotten diagnosed with Ebola by the team doctors yet?

  16. marty2019 says: Nov 7, 2011 3:22 PM

    So, the question now is, if the Colts get to 0-14, will they rest their starters?

  17. obamablowz says: Nov 7, 2011 4:08 PM

    All they need is a little LUCK!

    A damn shame. When healthy, Clark is one of the pass catching tight ends of his generation.

    I’d die laughing if Andrew Luck decides he doesn’t want to be drafted by the Colts and wait for Manning to retire. The Manning Clan knows a thing or two about dictating which team drafts them….anybody else think there’s a chance Oliver Luck helps his son decide where he does/ doesn’t want to play?
