Avery likely getting MRI for apparent thigh injury

Colts receiver Donnie Avery made a great, diving catch on Sunday.  But the oft-injured wideout emerged with an injury.

According to Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star, Avery’s thigh was “heavily wrapped.”

After practice, coach Chuck Pagano said that Avery will likely undergo testing.

“He’ll go in and probably do an MRI or something later on,” Pagano said, via comments distributed by the team.  “I haven’t got the full report.  It’s nothing major, I know that.”

The Colts need targets for quarterback Andrew Luck.  And Avery, if he can stay healthy, can help the rookie quarterback move the chains.

    One of The fastest guys to never play, this guy has the speed, but not the health to play this game. I would cut him now (if injured at all), and get the youngsters more playing time. With Wayne, collie, brazil, and the explosive TY Hilton, they have an opportunity to shine. Not to mention the next best tight end tandem in the league. This team is young, but, in a couple of years will be deadly. Take it to the bank!!!

    @coltsluckdynasty. Not to take away from luck our the young core that is this offense, but you still need some semblance of an offensive line, and a running game. As a Browns fan I understand and applaud you enthusiasm for the young turn-around Colts, but also take it from a Browns fan, they are a work in progress and will more than likely have some road bumps.

    Just another awful draft pick by the Rams. It is good to see that it’s not just the Rams that he didn’t produce for though. This guy is like paper mache when he’s on the field. The training room should begin getting themselves acquainted.
