First Dallas Clark, now Joseph Addai. Jason LaCanfora of NFL Network is reporting that the Colts running back will get a second opinion on his ailing shoulder. Addai was injured Sunday night at Washington.
LaCanfora says the injury could keep Addai out several weeks. Fortunately, the Colts have a bye this Sunday.
If Addai is unable to go, Indy may have to rely on Mike Hart. Last year’s first-round pick and backup running back Donald Brown did not travel with the team in Week 6 because of a hamstring injury.
Hart is a tough, compact runner, but he lacks breakaway speed and is limited in the passing game. If Clark is unavailable at tight end, it reasons that the Colts would, in some fashion, rely more on their running back. If they have a running back, that is.
