Donald Brown and rookie running back Delone Carter will handle the running duties today because (surprise!) Joseph Addai is listed as OUT. Also out today is tight end Dallas Clark, who was ruled out earlier this week.
For many, this is Indy's 'Super Bowl' for 2011. If they can't beat the Jaguars at Lucas Oil, it is very possible this team goes 0-16. I honestly don't see how Jim Irsay can sell Chris Polian to the fans, media, or anyone if the team he has control over goes 0-16 this season. So, this is a BIG game. Really big. People-will-definitely-get-seriously-fired-at-season's-end kinda big.
And hey, maybe we'll see some touchdowns thrown by Curtis Painter. He hasn't had one in four games.
Back in the lineup for the second week is left tackle Anthony Castonzo. Drake Nevis also returns. Maybe the rooks can add a spark.
This is your open thread. Enjoy.
