If there were a player to feel sorry for in 2011, it was Austin Collie.
In 2010, Collie was experiencing a breakout year and appeared to be the new face of the Colts' receiving squad. His success came to a screeching halt when Collie suffered from three concussions in the same season.
In the nine games he played in (three of which were cut short per said concussions), Collie managed to catch 58 passes for 649 yards and eight touchdowns.
Despite the concussions, Collie entered the 2011 season ready to play, only to lose Peyton Manning for the entire 2011 season.
Collie was forced to play with previously retired Kerry Collins, and even worse backup Curtis Painter. It wasn't until Dan Orlovsky took the reins that Collie had a game with more than 50 yards or scored his first TD.
Regardless if it is Manning or Andrew Luck throwing the ball in 2012, a concussion-free Collie will break out in 2012.
