Will Carroll's injury update on Austin Collie is like a shift kick to the nuts:

Austin Collie's undisclosed injury is rumored to be a "significant" hamstring strain.

Not sure what 'significant' means, but usually that word isn't applied to something that takes a few weeks to heal. Obviously, we will hope for the best. But, if Collie is down for a while, this is a chance for Anthony Gonzalez to step up and prove he's worth his 2007 draft pedigree.

[UPDATE]: From Adam Schefter:

Filed to ESPN: Colts wide receiver Austin Collie underwent hand surgery this week that is expected to sideline him a few weeks.
