Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Anthony Gonzalez is expected to miss anywhere from 2-8 weeks depending on the status of his knee injury.

The Colts organization would not specify the exact nature of the knee injury, but anyone who saw the footage of Gonzalez going down could see the injury might prove nagging for the third year receiver, second on the depth chart behind Reggie Wayne.

Rumors are swirling that the Colts are pursuing Hank Baskett, recently released from the Philadelphia Eagles, to make up for the loss of Gonzalez.

This suggests the injury may cost Gonzalez more than just two or three weeks of playing time this year.
