Colts’ Darrius Heyward-Bey Battling Hamstring Injury

The Indianapolis Colts sit at 5-2 and are slated to take on a Houston Texans team that has lost five in-a-row this Sunday night. The Colts have already lost their offensive leader – veteran wide receiver Reggie Wayne - for the year due to an ACL tear, and may now have to face Houston without another playmaker, wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey. Heyward-Bey is managing a hamstring...

Re-Examining the Trent Richardson Deal: The Irony

You remember where you were that day. No, I’m not talking about Brad Stevens’ sudden exit to coach professional basketball in a city where people have funny accents. I’m not talking about the Colts’ triumphant win over Peyton Manning and the undefeated Denver Broncos a few Sundays ago. Heck, I’m not even talking about the day the Indianapolis Indians won their most recent...

Indianapolis Colts: T.Y.’s time to shine

I’ve been hearing a lot of talk about Darrius Heyward-Bey and Coby Fleener having to step up in Reggie Wayne’s absence. That they are the key to the Indianapolis Colts’ passing offense continuing to play at a high level. Hope to see a lot more of these from Hilton as the season progresses (Photo credit: Colts.com) I don’t disagree that they need to step up but the key to...

Also active is Houston running back Ben Tate, who sustained four broken ribs against the Chiefs. Inactive...

Fantasy Football: Who gets a bump in Indi?

Reggie Wayne is done for the year. Andrew Luck was 9 years old the last time that neither Wayne or Marvin Harrison was active for a Colts game. This is definitely a big blow to the team; but the Colts do have depth. I leave it up to you; our readers, to decide who is going to reap the rewards of Reggie Wayne’s ACL:Who gets a bump in Indi? With Reggie Wayne out for the season,...

Double A Breakdown: Week 9 - Colts vs Texans

 The 5-2 Indianapolis Colts travel to Houston to play the 2-5 Texans in what should be a tough divisional matchup. Both teams are coming off their bye weeks and both are dealing with injuries. Case Keenum starts for the Texans after a solid outing against the Chiefs, and the Colts will play their first game since 1998 without Reggie Wayne or Marvin Harrison. It should be a fun one...

UPDATE: Colts’ Werner, Satele Active Against Houston

Indianapolis Colts‘ Rookie outside linebacker Bjoern Werner and center Samson Satele will suit up against the Houston Texans tonight. The original report came via the Twitter feed of Colts’ beat writer Mike Wells. The Colts are slowly getting back to health, and for a team that has lost their offensive leader in Reggie Wayne, the news could not come at a better time. Here is a...

Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans: 2013 Week 9 NFL Pick

Indianapolis Colts (5-2) at Houston Texans (2-5) You could definitely still argue the Texans are underrated and are better than their record. They are moving the chains at a 75% rate, as opposed to 72% for their opponents. That differential is 12th in the NFL. They have been killed by turnovers (-11), an inability to recover fumbles (37.5%), and a ridiculous amount of return touchdowns...

WHAT IF: The Colts Never Released Peyton Manning?

In the move of the decade, the Colts released their best player in team history; Peyton Manning.This is obviously old news, but it's worth looking into what would've happened if Jim Irsay & co. never made the league-wide altering move. Let's start from the beginning. Let me take you back to 2011, in a land where the Colts are 2-14 entering the offseason. "Suck...

Preview of the Enemy: Indianapolis Colts

The 2013 Houston Texans season isn’t dead yet, but it’s on life support and the plug will be pulled if they lose to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. A loss to Indianapolis would put the Texans four games behind the Colts, five with the tiebreaker factored in, with just eight games remaining. They wouldn’t be mathematically eliminated, but realistically their playoff chances...

Colts’ Mathis draws attention of Texans’ offense

Case Keenum presents the Texans with a much more mobile quarterback than the recently benched Matt Schaub. But Indianapolis’ defense is led by 11-year veteran Robert Mathis, and his league-leading 11.5 sacks have already drawn the attention of the Texans’ offense. “Very much (worried),” coach Gary Kubiak said Thursday at Reliant Stadium. “He’s playing everywhere. If...

Indianapolis Colts vs. Houston Texans Preview and Prediction

The Indianapolis Colts will try and extend their lead in the AFC South tonight when they face off with the Houston Texans at 8:30 p.m. ET on NBC....

Colts-Texans Live Blog, Second Half

It looks as though we have a budding Sex Cannon. Case Keenum has been playing like a younger and, if not more virile, at least better version of Rex Grossman. If anything, that’ll be it for Matt Schaub.A minute into the game, Keenum rolled out and launched one to an open Andre Johnson for a 62-yard touchdown. The Colts responded with an opening drive that yielded a field goal attempt...
