Brad Meester is practicing in a limited capacity again, here's hoping against hope that he's back for the game against the Texans!

Other notable injuries include the Colt's offensive and defensive lines... Jeff Saturday will be making his return to the field against the Jaguars, which means the Colts will at least know there blocking responsibilities this week as Jeff is responsible for calling out blitzers. However, the Colt's offensive line is without Tony Ugoh and Mike Pollack, if our shiny new defensive ends are gonna make a splash, this will be the week to do so. Our defensive front four clearly have an advantage over the Colt's stable of back-ups... I'm not saying we'll go all "Tenneesee" on their asses and lodge 7 sacks, but I'd anticipate we're gonna try... I think if we can put Peyton down at least 4 times, we'll win. Once he's rattled he'll make mistakes like he always does... like any QB would (Garrard did too).

Fred and MJD are going to be back and at full strength to boot! Bob Sanders is out and the Colts DT's are banged up... This WILL be the week to attack the interior of their defense. Jerry Porter is listed as questionable, but don't fret. I expect to see him on the field despite Del Rio's assertion he's not likely to play. I can see right through this scheme, the Jags NEED this win and I'd call this gamesmanship on JDR's part. We've seen Beel Beelichick (thanks Cartman) pull this stunt on almost a weekly basis and there have been no reprecussions. I'd suspect that now you're seeing Jack do the same. We need every advantage we can get, and a surprisingly quick Porter would constitute a clear advantage over a team that game-planned against a power run strike all week.

I'm calling it now... Jerry Porter WILL play, you can take that to the bank. If he doesn't get on the field then we all need to hit the panic button because that means his hammy is alot worse than anyone anticipated... something that could be chronic and hamper the rest of his career... can you say bust? Like I said though... I don't buy a bit of the story that JDR is selling, Porter is gonna play, and he'll play well.

Dwight Freeney seems to have regained a bit of his form and doesn't seem to be slowed by his lisfranc surgery. He's already lodged 2 sacks this season, so expect him to bring the heat like he always does. Look for us to max-protect some again this week, but that won't be such a detriment if a superb route runner like Porter is on the field.

Remember fans... we need to sell out next week's game regardless of the outcome this week... Stanley Drunkenmiller's offer to buy the Pittsburgh Steelers fell thorough, so he may look to purchase the "Steelers of the South" from Wayne Weaver. Mr. Weaver may be more entitled to sell if we're still getting games blacked out, so buy those tickets!
