Addai Could Be Out Longer Than Expected

Ryan Gaydos@@RyanGaydosSenior Analyst IOctober 15, 2008


The Indianapolis Colts’ big time running back Joseph Addai will most likely be out of action from 2-4 weeks. The reason being is that is tore his hamstring in Sunday’s win over the Baltimore Ravens.

More bad news is also coming the Colts’ way. Their backup Mike Hart, rookie out of Michigan, has also injured himself tearing his ACL and putting him out of action for the season. Now Addai isn’t much to be missed because he only has 216 yards on 62 carries with four touchdowns, but now he doesn’t have a backup, or does he?

Dun! Dun! Dun! Enter Dominic Rhodes. Dominic Rhodes is the only healthy tailback on the Colts’ roster right now. He ran for 79 yards and a touchdown last week and both Addai and Hart went down so he proved that he could get the job done.

Rhodes played for Oakland last season after being released by the Colts. He signed with Indianapolis again this season.
