Found October 12, 2012 on Pro Football Zone:
According to Mike Chappell of the Indy Star, Colts outside linebacker Robert Mathis will be out for the next 23 weeks with a sprained left knee.
This is a big blow to the Colts’ defense. They paid Mathis big money to re-sign in Indy while they re-tool as an organization.

Five Colts do not make trip to NY

Four-time Pro Bowler Robert Mathis and starting running back Donald Brown did not make the trip when the Indianapolis Colts traveled to New York on Saturday for their game against the Jets. Neither absence was a surprise. The Colts (2-2) had said both would miss two to three weeks with knee injuries. Linebacker Jerry Hughes is expected to replace Mathis in the starting lineup,...

Analysis of Week 6 Roster Moves – Offense

With a bevy of roster moves this week, it is probably best to look at them in a few different articles to give them the proper amount of analysis. First, let’s take offense. The Colts this week have sent OG Seth Olsen to Injured Reserve (with the “Designated to Return” label) and waived TE/FB Dominique Jones. Two players who have seen significant snaps and both started games...

Indystar: For young Colts, it's 'time to grow up' against Jets

Mike Chappell of The Indianapolis Star, working weekends as always, says the Colts have an opportunity to take a big step forward against the Jets.  Chappell says there is a built-in excuse, with the collective youthfulness of the team and the situation with Coach Pagano, but Bruce Arians will have none of it: "It's time to grow up," Arians said. "Some of these...

Sabino: Colts Fantasy Check

Last week, everyone who chose to play Luck and Wayne were rewarded; my brother sat both of them in his league, and lost by about 20 points. Poor guy. Anyway, so you don't make the same mistakes with Colts players this week, here's a nice fantasy article, curtesy of David Sabino. Interestingly, he suggests teams pick up Vick Ballard, given New York's clearly porous defensive...

Indianapolis Colts try to stay #CHUCKSTRONG in week 6 vs. Jets

The Indianapolis Colts try to maintain the momentum gained after last week’s stunning upset over the Green Bay Packers as they meet the New York Jets Sunday at MetLife Stadium.It was as emotional a win as any you could imagine for the Colts, whose head coach Chuck Pagano is battling recently diagnosed leukemia. It is up to interim head coach and offensive coordinator Bruce Arians...

Armstrong: Respecting the Rookie

It seems like the league's worst 2011 team is becoming the feel-good story of 2012; Kevin Armstrong, who writes for the Jets, has a great article on Andrew Luck, maybe the most complimentary I've seen on the Colts's QB. Luck is a 6-4, 234-pound rookie capable of throwing from all angles with uncommon touch. Already able to identify his progressions and reads, he is...

Spotlight Matchup: Mark Sanchez vs. the Colts' Pass Defense

After a huge win agains the Packers this past Sunday, the Colts will take on the circus in New York on Sunday.  The Jets have had their problems in 2012, being extremely disappointing after a blowout win against Buffalo in Week 1.  A lot of the problems have stemmed from the Jets most visible problem: quarterback. Mark Sanchez continues to be a terrible excuse for an NFL quarterbak...

CBS: Colts/Jets Preview

Even with their wins over Minnesota and Green Bay, the Colts are being picked as a 3.5-point underdog; CBS has them losing by 7 in their weekly preview. Their score (17-10) would be an interesting outcome, especially because:- it would be 7 points less than the Colts's lowest score this year - since week 1 against Buffalo, the Jets have scored 10, 23, 0, and 17 points and are...

Fantasy Football Week 6 Preview: Colts at Jets

Indianapolis Colts @ New York JetsIndianapolis:  The Colts come off of a stunning and emotional upset of the Green Bay Packers in Week 5.  The question is, with all that emotion from coach Chuck Pagano’s diagnosis poured into a herculean effort to defeat Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, do Andrew Luck and the Colts have anything left in the tank for a vulnerable Jets team? For...

Pick of the week: Colts (+3.5) at Jets

Coming off of an emotional victory against the Packers on the back of Chuck Pagano, this could have the makings of a let down game. That is of course if the Jets had anything resembling an offensive attack and had the ability to put up points in any traditional manner. Betting against the Jets can be tricky, because they will come along with a Joe McKnight return to the house...
