allen

The following roster moves had been made as of 5:30 p.m. September 17th:

Injury Reserve Moves: According to Mike Chappell from indystar.com, the Indianapolis Colts placed G Donald Thomas on the IR. Also the Colts waived-injured FB Dan Moore from the IR with an injury settlement.

Roster Move: The Colts signed undrafted free agent RB Miguel Maysonet to the practice squad as the running back depth is becoming thin for the Colts.

Power Rankings from ESPN and NFL.com: With Week 2 at a close, ESPN released their latest power ranking as the Indianapolis Colts were placed at number 14. NFL.com also released their power ranking and have the Colts placed at number 15.

Lack of power in the power run game: It looks like the Colts “power run game” still needs some work. According to Kyle Rodriguez from coltsauthority.com, the Colts are converting only 50 percent on third-and-short (three yards or less), while the league average is 64 percent.

Jim Irsay gives clue about a potential RB trade: Colts owner Jim Irsay loves Twitter, and he loves giving out clues about potential moves that the Colts might do. Well he has done it again by tweeting, “Colts GM Ryan Grigson will try to trade for a running back before the trade deadline.”

According to Kyle Rodriguez from BleacherReport.com, the following are players with their injury status:

TE Dwayne Allen (hip) has been placed on season-ending IR. (Updated on Sept. 18th, 2013)

WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (shoulder) is considered probable for  Week 3.

WR David Reed (head) is considered questionable for Week 3

ILB Kavell Conner (ankle) is considered questionable for Week 3.

RB Vick Ballard and G Donald Thomas had been placed in the IR and are out for the season.

Latest AFC South standings:

Texans: 2-0

Colts: 1-1

Titans: 1-1

Jaguars: 0-2

Week 3 poses a huge challenge for the Colts. They head west and will face the San Francisco 49ers, led by rising star Colin Kaepernick. Both sides of the ball will be tested early and often, and this game will be a great measuring stick to see where this team stacks up in the NFL.
