The Colts’ secondary already has been hit with a huge blow, and it’s not even the preseason.
Safety Clayton Geathers will start the year from the physically unable to perform list and is scheduled to miss the first six weeks of the season, the team announced Monday .
Geathers needed neck surgery in March after he injured it in Week 11 during the Colts’ win over the Titans.
He sustained a concussion the next week and was eventually placed on the injured reserve in December.
Geathers, who recorded 59 tackles in nine games last season, attempted traditional ways of rehabilitation before deciding to have the surgery.
The Colts first round pick Malik Hooker is a candidate to take over Geathers’s spot, as is Darius Butler, who is making the move from cornerback to safety.
The result: This trade lives in infamy. The Expos wondered if the hard-throwing Johnson would ever find a way to control his stuff (he did), and they needed a strikeout lefty in their rotation to make a playoff push. Langston was really good — 2.39 ERA, 8.9 K/9 in 24 starts for Montreal — but the Expos finished .500 anyway, and the lefty signed with the Angels as a free agent after the season. Randy Johnson later became, well, Randy Johnson.
Dennison loves him some fullbacks, which helps explain the Bills’ free-agency acquisitions of Patrick DiMarco and Mike Tolbert. But the OC also has a history of using zone blocking schemes, which makes Buffalo’s decision to let efficient runner Mike Gillislee leave for New England Cheap Hockey Jerseys For Sale somewhat of Cheap High Quality Soccer Jerseys a head-scratcher.
Nevertheless, LeSean McCoy again will be the Bills’ No. 1 back, and if healthy, he’s still capable of spearheading a rushing attack that ranked first in the league last season.
