A ray of injury news sunshine on an otherwise cold, bleak early-October day for the Indianapolis ColtsAccording to Indianapolis' WISH-TV, Pierre Garçon is expected to return to the line-up Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Garçon has been out for two weeks with a hamstring injury, which he aggravated during his rather visibly shaky game Week One against the Houston Texans. In typical Garçon fashion that day, he dropped easy balls he should always catch and caught different passes that made the ridonkulous highlight reels. 

While Austin Collie has more than ably filled in for Garçon on the outside (Collie is second the league in catches, third in yards, and second in TDs), what Garçon provides is amazing speed on the outside and the ability to make plays over the top of the safety. He's also big a strong, which is why the Colts love to use that bubble screen play with him in key situations.

Moving Collie back to the slot will provide even more mis-matches that favor the second-year BYU product and make it that much more difficult for teams to double-cover Reggie Wayne (who, BTW, is leading the league in receptions and yards, thank you very much).
