From RotoWorld:

Colts C Jeff Saturday (knee ) has practiced for two straight days.

Saturday is well ahead of schedule, but coach Tony Dungy says it's too early to put a percentage on his chances of playing this weekend.

This thread won't get many responses, but quite possibly the most underrated news of of the week would be Saturday's return to this O-line.

:thumbup:
Last Sunday before the game, I went to brunch on the north side of Indy at a Le Peeps and lo and behold, there was Saturday with the family in tow. My girlfriend saw him first and said, "shouldn't he be doing something?" Of course everyone eats breakfast, but considering the injury it was sad to see him sitting there waiting for a table like all the rest of us swine when he is has such an important roll on the Colts team. I'm delighted to hear that he is practicing and can definitely say that his presence/or lack thereof is huge. Major factor in this offense. Good luck Jeff!
 
I don't like Joseph Addai. He plays for a great offensive team, but what I don't like about him is his toughness. Every time I watch a Colts games, he seems to get his bell rung somehow. Next thing you know, he's off the field and someone else is in.

I've never owned him, didn't like him in the top 7 picks this year which is probably the reason I didn't get him. Yes, he's definately a threat to get TD's, a direct result for being the starting RB for the Colts.

But after last year, watching him always come off the field for some matter of time because of being dinged and then watching him versus the Bears....then get dinged up again and have to come out and have Rhodes run (on a 4th and short where he was stopped and Addai's toughess really cost them there), I was happy I didn't draft him after Sunday night, the guy just bothers me.

All season long he'll be in......he'll be out. Is the injury serious or does he need a band aid. Does having your starting center help? Of course, it would help any RB but he'll still take the same hits and he'll still be in and out. Saturday was playing last year and I saw how Addai played. Addai will struggle to get 1000 yards. The addition of Saturday helps Peyton Manning more than anything.

I reported last week that Saturday was ahead of schedule and wasn't going to be out as many games as people were expecting... but no one paid any attention.

Exaggerate much? Addai had over 1,000 while missing an entire game last season, and while in a serious time share his rookie season. Sure getting his bell rung wasn't cool, but his "injuries" over this season and last were not the type that make you say someone "lacks toughness." Last season he played through an injury no one even talked about. The guy is tough. Problem is that the team has no depth at the RB position, even after adding Hart and bringing Rhodes back, so they are extra careful with Addai.But he'll have over 1200 yards this season, plus receiving yards. He'll be a top-5 RB by the end of the season.

An entire game, big deal. So with that game if he were to play, he gets what, 1150? 1,000 yard rusher on the Colts team is not impressive to me. 1000 yards on the Lions......maybe, but you absolutely SHOULD get 1000 yards as the starter on the Colts.I'm not sure what you're referring to when I say exaggerate. If it's how often I see him get dinged up in the course of a game, then no, I didn't. I mentioned in my post he comes in.......he comes out. He had 12 carries in week 1 with 1 reception and 1 target with zero Td's. He's had two years with the Colts and hasn't reached 1100 yards rushing in either season, I'll take a stand against. If you think he's in for a top 5 season, he's got a lot of work to do from now until the end of the season, although I seriously doubt he'll get there.

THANK YOU SWITZ
 
Saturday: Wait and see

The availability of center Jeff Saturday and tight end Dallas Clark might not be determined until Sunday morning. Saturday, who tore a ligament in his right knee in an Aug. 24 preseason game, practiced for a third straight day Friday. Clark, who left the season-opening loss to Chicago with a right knee injury, saw limited work after being held out of practice the previous two days. "I feel like I've done everything I can do,'' Saturday said.
