There is a firm rule in sports gambling. Never, ever bet against Peyton Manning. Today that rule is going to be tested by gamblers all over the country, and for legitimate reasons. The Colts being banged up is one of the main ones. The fact that they are playing a hard-hitting New York Jets team is another.
Indianapolis already lost star tight end/H-back Dallas Clark (wrist) and two solid receivers in Anthony Gonzalez (knee) and Austin Collie (head) for the year.
Luckily, the Colts got Joseph Addai some reps last week after sitting out the majority of the season, and essentially the entire roster is questionable to play this week, and has been all season. The biggest concern for the Colts is starting right tackle Ryan Diem (back) who hasn't practiced all week.
Reggie Wayne's knee is slightly injured, but he will play, and be a threat. And defensively for the Colts, they are without Defensive back Kelvin Hayden and linebacker Clint Session.
So let's see if a banged up Colts team can hang with the Jets. It's playoff time boys, so shoot up those pain killers and run out of that tunnel.
