NFL Playoffs: Colts Wild Card Weekend Injury Report- Wednesday

Apologies for not posting this last night. The report has some interesting information.

Full participation: Al Afalava, Dan Muir, and Jaimie Thomas

Limited participation: Antonio Johnson

No participation: Ryan Diem, Dwight Freeney, Kelvin Hayden, Robert Mathis, Mike Newton, Dominic Rhodes, Jamey Richard, and Clint Session.

Last week, Clint Session participated in each practice, but did not play against the Titans. On Monday, when asked as to whether Session had a 'set back' to prevent him from playing against the Titans, Jim Caldwell denied the claim. Yesterday (and likely on Tuesday) Session did not practice.

So, unless Clint Session tripped over his dog on Monday, it's likely Jim Caldwell was lying when he said Session had not suffered an injury setback. Logic suggests that if a player can practice all week but ends up not playing that something happened to 'set back' said player's recovery process between the practices and the game itself.

But, whatever. Coaches lie about injuries all the time. It's not 'moral' or anything like that for the supposedly unapologetic Christian that is Jim Caldwell, but it's simply a fact of life in the NFL. Perhaps he just views lying as part of his job to get the team in the best position possible to win games, 'values' be damned.

If Session cannot go, it's not critical. Pat Angerer, Tyjuan Hagler, and Kavell Conner have more than replaced Session (who should have been IRed back in October over Anthony Gonzalez).
