Khaled Holmes limps off on opening Colts drive

The Colts offense got the ball to start the first half at MetLife Stadium and all looked well.

Andrew Luck moved the team quickly down the field by hitting Hakeem Nicks and T.Y. Hilton while Trent Richardson posed a couple of good runs against a good Jets defensive line. They were in Jets territory and close to probably having the rest of the night off after a job well done when injury struck.

Center Khaled Holmes went down at the end of one of Richardson’s runs and remained on the field to receive medical attention. He eventually limped off to the sideline under his own power and was replaced by undrafted free agent Jonotthan Harrison. The drive continued for a bit, but the Colts were forced to kick a field goal after Harrison snapped the ball past Luck in the red zone.

The interior of the offensive line is not a spot where the Colts can afford an injury. They’ve already lost guard Donald Thomas for the season and are starting a rookie and second-year player at guard around Holmes, who is also in his second professional season. Holmes has returned to the locker room with the Colts medical staff.

    Time to bring back AQ Shipley.

    Shipley’s time is being wasted in Baltimore. He’s a good center, but better for a zone scheme though.

    Vick is outplaying Geno.

    WE all know this , Why is anyone really surprise that Vick is MILES BETTER than Geno , Lets be candid here Vick is MILES better than alot of QB’s starting in this league.Injuries have been his Achilles heels.If this was any other team this lame attempt to have a QB competition wouldn’t be happening ,, its a downright farce and a INSULT to Vick and people who know this game.
    If the Jets are serious about contending they better have Vick under snaps come opening day , This is football you can’t afford to lose games with Geno and expect to make them up down the stretch… when you switch to VICK , its not a 82 game season.

    I believe the Colts should only take offensive lineman and a safety in the next draft.
