Sorgi’s injury might have happened away from football
We’re still confounded by the fact that a guy who never plays -- and who wears a red jersey in practice -- somehow landed on injured reserve.
According to Eric Hartz of ColtPower.com (part of FOX’s Scout.com project), there are “some unconfirmed whispers that it’s possibly a non-football injury.”
We don’t know whether it is or isn’t an injury that Sorgi sustained while (not) playing football or while practicing with (no) contact, the reality is that the backup to the guy who starts every game and takes nearly every snap has somehow landed on injured reserve.
And we still can’t imagine the Colts entering the looming postseason preseason with Curtis Painter as the guy who enters the game after Peyton Manning makes a cameo appearance to preserve his string of consecutive starts.
J.P. Losman recently worked out for the Colts, and he’d be a good candidate to take the reins of the offense once Manning is given a couple of games off, at more than $820,000 per week.
