At a time when many of us are taking shots at Anthony Gonzalez's inability to stay healthy, the man who took Gonzo's starting job from him is having injury problems of his own. According to ESPN's Paul Kuharsky (via Twitter), Colts wide receiver Pierre Garçon has been ruled out for tomorrow's game against the Broncos.
Going into the game, the Colts only had three health wide receivers. With Garçon now out, Indianapolis only had Reggie Wayne and Austin Collie available. While Dallas Clark and Jacob Tamme have wide receiving skills at the tight end position, they do not have the skills to consistently play on the outside should something happen to Wayne or Collie during a game.
To help with the situation, the Colts signed pre-season phenom Blair White off the practice squad. White was the Colts' most consistent receiver in pre-season. His twelve catches lead the team. At 6'2, 205 pounds, he also provides a big target for Peyton Manning. To make room on the active roster for White, the Colts placed linebacker and special teams performer Ramon Humber on the waived-injured list. Humber has a fractured hand, which he had surgery on earlier this week. Unless someone claims him off the waived-injured list, Humber will go to Injured Reserve, ending his 2010 season.
PFT provides additional info, saying that Clint Session and Brandon King have been ruled 'OUT' as well. This likely means Kavell Conner will start again for Session. DaJuan Morgan could see his first action for the Colts on special teams, replacing King.
