Found August 30, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
The Indianapolis Colts' inside linebacker Kavell Connor has been a staple on the team's defense for the past two seasons. In 2011 he started on the inside alongside Pat Angerer, and finished third on the team with 104 tackles. The emergence of rookie linebacker Jerrell Freeman last season threatened Connor's starting role on the team, but when Angerer went down with a season-ending injury, Connor returned to the lineup and started nine games. Last season, Freeman emerged onto the NFL scene and recorded a team high 145 tackles and two sacks as a rookie. Freeman is an impact player for the Colts on defense, and with the return of the team's former leading tackler, Angerer, Connor has been pushed out of the lineup this season and is now expendable to the team. According to Ian Rapport of NFL.com, the Colts are looking to see if they can trade the fourth-year linebacker. Another guy being dangled in a possible trade, this time by #Colts? ILB Kavell Conner. had 54 tackles last year Trying to find value... — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 30, 2013 Connor's production slipped last season, and he's not nearly the impact player Freeman is or as reliable as Angerer. However, Connor is still a young ascending player, and with depth at inside linebacker, the Colts are hoping they can still get something for Connor on the trade block. Connor is set to become a free agent after this season, so Indianapolis is probably trying to get something for the veteran linebacker before he hits the open market. The Colts could use some more depth at offensive and defensive line, as well as at cornerback. So that might be what they are looking for in return for Connor. More than likely though they will get a future late round draft pick for the linebacker. Despite the rumors, there's still a good chance the Colts keep Connor around. He's still one of the better linebackers on the team and offers depth at an important position that has been hit with injuries the past few seasons.

Andrew Luck a player to avoid in your fantasy draft?

Andrew Luck was a fantastic rookie Quarterback in both the real and fantasy world last season.

Colts Fall to Bengals; Lose 27-10

 The Indianapolis Colts didn't play many starters, and they were easily beaten by the Cincinnati Bengals.   It wasn't a good game for the Colts. I guess that's what happens when Andrew Luck and the key starters don't play. Matt Hasselbeck got the start for the game. He led them off pretty well but failed to get more than 3 on the board. His performance was decent...
