And so it continues. The Colts‘ linebacking core already took a hit when rotational inside linebacker A.J. Edds tore his ACL earlier this offseason. Now, the linebackers are hit with two more blows. First, Scott Lutrus joins Edds and G/T Benjamin Ijalana with a season ending ACL tear. Lutrus may or may not have made the team, but any time you lose an asset for the season, especially at a position where one depth player has already been lost, it’s concerning. But the more critical blow is Pat Angerer’s injury: a fractured bone in his foot. Angerer will require surgery and likely miss about six weeks, including the three or four weeks of the regular season.

Colts lose LB Angerer for six weeks

Colts linebacker Pat Angerer could miss six weeks after fracturing a foot during the preseason opener. Coach Chuck Pagano made the announcement during a conference call with reporters Monday.

Indianapolis Colts: Andrew Luck Era Has Begun

Yes, it has. For at least one half, Andrew Luck was the real deal. The successor to Peyton Manning, Luck directed the Colts...

Andrew Luck has to help

Last year, Curtis Painter was 0-8, while throwing 6 touchdown passes and 9 interceptions. He completed 132 passes and was really, just tremendously unpleasant to endure watching. I went to Purdue, as did Painter, and I thought he was a bad, pity choice by the Colts, drafting a local guy to fill a roster spot that wouldn’t be used, necessarily. Dan Orlovsky, he of running out of...

Indianapolis trying to fill holes at linebacker

Nobody on the Colts expected the change in defensive schemes under new coach Chuck Pagano to come without a few bumps - just not this many this quickly. Over the past two weeks, Indy's linebacker corps has taken three big hits. Backup A.J.
