On Friday, Colts head coach Chuck Pagano informed media that OG Joe Reitz had a "minor procedure" on his knee, and he will be out until after the bye week.

"We're shooting for Green Bay," said Pagano, referring to Week Five against the Packers.

Pagano also said that Pat Angerer could be expected back for Week Five as well.

Other injury news involved Austin Collie. For the first time this season leading up to a game, Collie participated in all three practices. Both he and OT Winston Justice are listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

This news leads me to think both Collie and Justice will play. Both are recovering from concussions.

Interesting side note from Pagano's presser with media, he answered a question about Andrew Luck and the importance of a quarterback in today's NFL:

"If you don't have one... I don't care what level. I've said it many, many times. I don't care what level you're playing on, you can't win. You've got to have a quarterback."

Pagano's coaching background is defense. His answer was interesting. It was also 100% correct.
