Landry misses practice with concussion

The Colts practiced on Tuesday, four days before their divisional-round game against the Patriots.  They did so without safety LaRon Landry.

Per a league source, Landry has not yet been cleared to practice after suffering a concussion on Saturday against the Chiefs.  Landry took a knee to the helmet while trying to make a tackle, which then was followed by a teammate smacking Landry in the helmet several times to congratulate him for making the play.

Since Landry is in the concussion protocol, he’ll have to be cleared by an independent neurologist to practice, and separately to play.

    And nothing of value was lost.

    That would be Kelvin Sheppard slapping him in the head. FYI, when a player is down, hurt, don’t touch him…

    He has been less than impressive this season for the Colts. His backup, Delano Howell, filled in nicely. But he’s on IR. Colts need Landry, even though he hasn’t played that well. He can still put the hurt on folks…when he isn’t whiffing trying to make the big play. Depth is a concern in the defensive secondary. Toler is out, Vontae Davis is hurt….yikes.

    I swear I don’t recall Landry coming out of the game after the hit. This is two of them when we lost 4 of our best play-makers in that game to concussion protocal. They were immediately benched and not allowed to participate further. If my memory is correct, this double-standard of implementing the protocol has got to be addressed. If Jamal Charles and/or Knile Davis plays in the second half we win that game easily. Our 4 second half drives burned a total of 8 minutes becasue we couldn’t run the ball. For one team to get a competitive advantage by applying the protocol more liberally is inexcusable. If I’m wrong and Landry came out of the game immediately, forgive my ranting and attribute it to post-concussive pissed off that my team blew a 28-point lead syndrome.

    I feel like he went the Roy Williams route, starting out as a great hitting/coverage combo then ate/lifted his way to obscurity.

    He used to be a football player, then he took a helmet to the knee.

    Landry left the game. 42 Corey Lynch played the rest of the way.

    Landry never could tackle, he would hit like a ton of bricks, but one juke and he would whiff as the runner continued down field. Amazing athlete, but frustrating to watch him NOT wrap up on a tackle. Hope he is OK, I hate to see any player get hurt.

    This weekend will be interesting–Maybe Indy and NE can combine defensive backfields to form one good unit that will then play against both offenses. Sounds fair to me. Indy’s only unscathed unit is QB, if that’s a unit–plus kicker/punter/long-snapper. Every other one has guys on IR as well as guys who missed 4-5 games at a stretch. Maybe the DL has escaped the IR plague, not sure.
