I dont think Sorgi is injured, or if he is injured then he isnt injured badly enough to land on the IR, heres what I think is really going on.
- Painter is playing well, outplaying Sorgi.
- Colts realise Painter can be their new long term back up
- They want to get rid of Sorgi, hes wasting a roster spot that could come in handy. They have a few options
- Relase him.
- Keep him
- Exaggerate his injury and put him on IR
Seems to me they would go for number 3. They cant do number 1, because Sorgi must no a hell of a lot about how the offense works, and to release him now would mean another team snap him up and grill him for information on the colts. This close to the playoffs itd be insane. Keeping him is wasting a roster spot, so if they cant put him on IR then hell they should go for it.
Disclaimer: Some of you might call this heavy ridiculous speculation, and youd be damn right. Ive made a lot of assumptions, all of which could be wrong, but I think it could be a possibility and was worth pointing out.
