Well, it seems like Joseph Addai is good to go tonight for the Colts, which is a bit of welcome news for a team starting Kevin Thomas at corner tonight purely out of desperation. Yes, you read that right. Kevin Thomas will start his first game tonight after weeks of being deactivated.

Don't ask me who makes the active roster decisions, or why. Deactivated to starting. Against the Saints. In New Orleans. Ugh.

Scratched for tonight's game are Drake Nevis, Anthony Castonzo, Ryan Diem, A.J. Edds, Anthony Gonzalez, and Peyton Manning. Gonzo is a healthy scratch. Again. Scratch that. Gonzo got hurt in practice last week. Groin. Glass Gonzo strikes again.

Seriously, it's neat that Thomas gets to play, and maybe we can see some more progress from Curtis Painter. I just don't get how a guy can go from deactivated to starting where the circumstances don't have anything to do with injury. I guess they're just throwing dudes out there to see if they can play.

This is your open thread. Enjoy.
