Indianapolis Colts linebacker Erik Walden has been suspended one game by the NFL for head butting Titans’ Delanie Walker last Thursday, FOXSports’ Jay Glazer reported. Walden ripped off Walker’s helmet and tossed it downfield.  When Walker confronted Walden, Walden head-butted Walker in the face when he wasn’t wearing a helmet. “That’s dirty play, there is no need for stuff like that in the NFL,” Walker said, via ESPN.com. “If you’re getting your butt kicked, get your butt kicked. Don’t rip somebody’s helmet off and then head butt them. I’m surprised he didn’t get ejected. … “Dang, this is a sport we all play with each other, we’re all family, this is a fraternity. For you to do some senseless act like that, that just tells me what type of player you are. There is no need to talk. I’m going to see him in two weeks and I’m going to whoop his butt again.” Walden was penalized on the play but was not ejected. “It was a selfish act,” Walden said. “It could have cost my team bigger than I did. I lost my composure. It something that can’t happen. It wasn’t really something he did, it was ticky-tack. I can’t allow myself to take it that far.” The Titans and Colts meet again on Dec. 1 in Indianapolis. The post Report: Erik Walden suspended one game for head-butt appeared first on Sports Glory.

Trent Richardson believes he has been 'playing good'

Trent Richardson has not provided any type of spark for the Indianapolis Colts since he was acquired in a trade from the Cleveland Browns two months ago. He is averaging just 2.8 yards per carry since the deal was made and has been outplayed by Donald Brown. Despite that, Richardson’s confidence remains high. In fact, […]

Colts RB Richardson defends his performance

In Trent Richardson's ideal world, he'd be running through defenses and threatening records the way he did at the University of Alabama. But in reality, the Indianapolis Colts running back has been struggling to gain traction as the team tries to breathe life into its running game. Richardson likely isn't living up to his own — or his team's —expectations. His...

Trent Richardson could be the last back we ever see picked early in the NFL draft

We all know Trent Richardson has been embarrassingly bad this season, but the Indianapolis Colts continue to insist that they're happy with their decision to trade a first-round pick for Richardson earlier this year.  That's not surprising, because...well, what would you expect them to say at this junction? Richardson is still on the roster and they can't admit defeat...

Trent Richardson: “I Think I’ve Been Playing Good”

I don’t think simply playing good is Trent Richardson’s problem. The Colts have maintained that they have no buyers remorse after trading a first round pick to the Browns for the talented Richardson.

Is the NFL shifting away from elite QBs to more efficient passers?

In the past several years, there’s been an intense focus on the quarterback position, and such a focus isn’t unwarranted either. Teams featuring an elite passer are nearly always in the playoffs, and as anyone who has been watching the NFL for some time knows, once you’re in the show, anything can happen. Last year, the Super Bowl was a contest between two teams featuring...

Colts RB Donald Brown has become go-to guy

It’s really a matter of passing the eye test. Donald Brown is running beautifully, recklessly, violently, breaking tackles and gaining hard yards. Trent Richardson is like a magnet around filings, drawing defenders to him like a picnic spread draws flies, getting dragged down and going nowhere fast in the run game. Which helps me reach two conclusions: 1. The Indianapolis Colts...
