Colts lose Bjoern Werner for 4-6 weeks

While it seemed nothing went wrong for the Colts on the field yesterday, something significant did.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano told reporters today that first-rounder Bjoern Werner would miss the next four to six weeks with a torn plantar fascia, calling it “bad news for Bjoern.”

Werner’s absence will force the Colts to rely heavily on trade acquisition Cam Johnson at outside linebacker behind Erik Walden and Robert Mathis.

The Colts also signed fullback Robert Hughes to their active roster, and released wide receiver Griff Whalen to make room.

    Tough injury. 4-5 weeks is best case. Will linger all season.

    Disappointing. He needs the repetition given a short background. But I know local media has reported a lot of optimism about his potential.

    No worries, the Seahawks are down both starting tackles, and their center, that hurt them bad vs Houston. Oh never mind, they overcame that and still won.

    Go Hawks.

    At least the colts have Trent Richardson and his 3.0 ypc to make up for all these injuries. Maybe the colts can draft an impact player in the first round next year, oh wait, they can’t pick anyone in that round lol.
