Injuries for Colts look to keep on coming

Indianapolis Colts president Bill Polian confirmed Thursday that tight end Dallas Clark is out for an indefinite period with a hand/wrist injury, and the team also said that wideout Austin Collie is also sidelined after thumb surgery.

Polian told WISH-TV that Clark would meet with doctors to verify the extent of the injury and how long he will be sidelined. Coach Jim Caldwell would only validate that Clark was being evaluated.

Peyton Manning has combined with Clark to structure one of the most prolific quarterback-tight end combos in NFL history. Clark ranks third on the team with 37 catches for 347 yards this term after catching 100 passes for 1,106 yards and 10 touchdowns last term.

Collie has six touchdown catches and 44 total for 503 yards in six games this term. The team re-signed tight finish Gijon Robinson on Wednesday. Indianapolis, in its bye week, will play division adversary Houston on Nov. 1.

It would be a modify of role for Yuvraj: Dhoni

Yuvraj Singh
Indian captain M.S.Dhoni on Tuesday said it would be modifying of position for Yuvraj Singh in the one-day series against Australia. Fighting with form and fitness, Yuvraj after being ignored for the Test series against Australia, has made a comeback for the ODIs in what appear to be a make or break series for the stylish Punjab batsman.

After the opener in Kochi being a wash-out, all eyes are on the 2nd one-day in Vizag on Wednesday and  Dhoni said they were expecting Yuvraj to play a vital role.

"Our batting has forever revolved around him. He is a type of player who can modify gears at any point of time and can take total control of the game. At the same time, he has played over 250 ODIs which means he has got a lot of experience," Dhoni said on the pre-match media communication.

Being the senior most cricketer of the side at a time when big players like Sachin and Sehwag are rested, Yuvraj will have modified in role.

"For somebody like Yuvraj Singh it will be a different approach of sorts. He will be one of the senior most players along with Ashish Nehra. It's a change of role for quite a few players.

"His bowling is very very important for us. If we choose for 4 bowlers and use part-timers as the 5th bowler, he is considered a bowling option. He has done quite well with the ball; he gets two-three wickets. We are expecting him to score runs," Dhoni said.

"If you do well in bowling it reflect in your batting and if you do well in batting it reflect in your bowling. He has got both the size of the game," said the captain, praising Yuvraj.
