Andrew Luck's gutty performance against the Steelers last night is the lead, but equally important to note from the Colts 26-24 loss last night were the injuries to Cory Redding and Austin Collie. Chuck Pagano got on a conference call with media today (we weren't invited... commence play of world's smallest violin) and told everyone that Redding had an MCL sprain. He's probably out for the rest of preseason. This isn't a significant injury. Ricardo Mathews and Drake Nevis have played quite well at the DE spot in Redding's place.

Collie's injury is much more severe on more than a few levels. It's yet another concussion for the fourth year receiver. I'll discuss what the Colts should do with Collie in a later article. For now, take a gander at Josh's recent article. He's on the money, per usual.

With Collie likely done for preseason, look for LaVon Brazill to see more time with the first unit. Donnie Avery looks like he won't last the first cutdown, and T.Y. Hilton has been inconsistent all preseason (good at camp though).

Another receiver to keep an eye on is Griff Whalen. He was outstanding last night in Pittsburgh, catching 4 balls for 59 yards and a touchdown.
