The Day After: Indianapolis Colts Post Game News and Notes (9/16/13)

Pagano Presser

It’s the day after and emotions have calmed a bit.  At least they have for me.  Yes, I still feel that dull ache inside that doesn’t go away until we start getting ready for next week’s game.  That won’t come until Wednesday.  As such, I still have a few “touch and go” days.  That said, I’m not as pained as yesterday.  Time heals wounds.  Pagano seems to subscribe to the approach of moving on.  “We had our chances to win.  Looking at the tape, you look for positives.  We pointed those out.  We made the corrections and tried to emphasize in all areas is mistakes being made and the corrections we’re making we can’t have repeat offenders.  To move forward, you have to clean them up and put them to rest.  It’s over and done.”

Things won’t get any easier next week as the Colts travel to San Francisco to play a 49ers team that lost handily to Seattle last night.  Pagano discussed next week’s game.  “Both facilities will be similar in their approach.  Any time you lose, it’s never fun.  We talk about the 24-hour rule when you win.  It doesn’t apply when you lose for some reason.  I don’t know why, but it just doesn’t apply.  You come in after a win, ‘Hey, 24 hours, onto the next one.’  Everybody’s miserable until you tee it up the following Sunday.  Hopefully, you get a win and get that sour taste out of your mouth.  They’re coming off a tough loss.  We’re coming off a tough loss.  I think the mindsets will be very similar.”

On the injury front, Donald Thomas will miss the rest of the season with a quad injury requiring surgery.  Tough loss for the Colts who signed Thomas to a 4 year, $14M deal in the offseason.  $1M of this deal is guaranteed.  Once he is placed on IR, the Colts will have a roster spot to fill.  With no offensive linemen on the practice squad, it’s likely we’ll dip into the market of players who were released in training camp.

Some good news on Darrius Heyward-Bey.  DHB’s MRI came back negative and he is likely to practice by Wednesday or Thursday of this week.

Dwayne Allen remains day to day.
