This is the worst year I can remember in terms of injuries. It is amazing the team is 5-2.

Can you guys believe this ****?
Colts always deal with a lot of injuries, it's not just this season. That's just the price you pay for drafting speed over size. But this season, it has been terrible.
Latest rumors are that McClendon might play as a TE. I'm fine with that in short-yardage situations, but I certainly don't want this guy to be running routes.
Working with a short roster also hurts your Special Team's unit. Tamme has been our best ST cover guy and now he is a starter. I'm assuming someone will have to replace Session also, taking another LB away from a ST coverage unit.
Not a huge loss since the team hasn't been able to use him for a year and a half. But it is still a loss and it's ridiculous how many injuries we've had this year.
Updated with Tryon and Collie injuries.
