Austin Collie continues to tell teammates and coaches that he's feeling well after being diagnosed with yet another concussion.
They're hoping he will be all right.
But the usually jovial attitude inside the Colts' locker room turned serious whenever the topic turned to Collie and his history of head injuries.
Collie has sustained at least three concussions in less than 22 months and sat out six of the last eight games and most of a seventh at the end of the 2010 season after twice leaving games following big hits.
Some players contend the forearm to the head Collie took early in Sunday's 26-24 loss should have drawn a penalty.
All are just hoping he's healthy enough to make it back onto the field soon.

Paul Kuharksy leads a rather intellectual discussion about Austin Collie's fate following his latest concussion:
Should the Colts cut him? I don’t know. It seems extreme to me. Maybe they can move more slowly in that direction. He wouldn’t have a say in the team putting him on IR, and for the price of his base salary ($1.308 million) they could ensure he doesn’t play...

This is unfortunate news for Collie owners, as he has looked...
I don’t like to tell athletes they should retire. I wouldn’t want anyone telling me when to quit doing what I love to do, but with Collie it is more about his health than anything else.
He is so sensitive to concussions, is it really worth it to keep playing?

Just like I said in Nate Dunlevy's Inside Slant yesterday, the Colts just can't seem to break the injury curse that has been haunting the souls of Colts' fans for the last ten years. Every year it seems like injuries decimate the team, whether it's a key player (such as Bob Sanders in 2006 or 2008, or Freeney in the 2007/2009 playoffs), and it doesn't look like...

with a possible concussion.
The Colts traveled to Pittsburgh Sunday night to take on the Steelers in the second preseason game of the year. Before we dissect the performance of Andrew Luck or discuss which players stood out, we need to start with a much more somber topic.
Austin Collie left the game in the first quarter due to concussion like symptoms. The head injury came on a hit that should never have happened...
