Colts lead Titans, 20-6 early in 4th quarter

The Colts are 0-13. We just all assumed that by Sunday evening they'd be 0-14, probabilities working the way they do, not to mention that the Titans are in the AFC wild-card hunt.

Well, through almost three quarters, Indy leads Tennessee 17-6 after cornerback Jacob Lacey returned a Matt Hasselbeck pass 32 years for and a touchdown to give the Colts the lead, 17-6.

It was the first interception by a Colts cornerback all season. Hasselbeck's pass was intended for running back Chris Johnson, who has reverted to worst-back-in-the-league form Sunday. As of this writing, he has 14 rushes for a whopping 20 yards.

If the Titans go down, so too in all likelihood will their playoff hopes. As for the Colts, a victory will possibly save Jim Caldwell's job (no way), avoid the ignominious distinction of being as bad as the 2008 Lions, all while guaranteeing their pole position in the race to Andrew Luck.

Another injury for the Colts

Posted by Andy Benoit

Maybe the football gods truly don't want Indy to succeed this season. There has been yet another crucial injury to the Colts (which somehow means Peyton Manning will throw another pick-six, right?).According to Gregg Rosenthal of Pro Football Talk, cornerback Jerraud Powers is out with a broken arm.

Powers, in 10 starts for the Colts, had two interceptions and nine pass breakups. He had also emerged as a reliable open-field tackler.

Jacob Lacey, an undrafted second-year pro who has struggled this season but was solid as a fill-in starter last season, will step in for Powers. Lacey's promotion leaves the Colts secondary very thin in the nickel package.

Report: Gary Brackett's hand injury 'no biggie'

Posted by Will Brinson

Linebacker Gary Brackett suffered a nasty little injury during the first quarter of Thursday's Packers - Colts preseason shootout when he banged his right hand against teammate Philip Wheeler's helmet.

Good news from Indy, though, as it appears Brackett will be just fine, according to Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star .

"No biggie,'' a source with knowledge of the injury told The Star , elaborating that Brackett almost certainly will be ready for the Colts' Sept. 12 regular-season opener at Houston.

Coach Jim Caldwell, when asked whether or not any of the injured players (Brackett, Joseph Addai, Tony Ugoh, Antonio Johnson and Jacob Lacey) would miss the season opener, said that "It's too early to make that assessment."

That's typical coach-speak, and given that Addai could have supposedly returned to the game despite his concussion and that Brackett's X-rays were negative, it seems that Colts' fans should be fairly optimistic heading towards the beginning of the regular season.
