This is an official club press release. Tip to Derek at XL 950
The Indianapolis Colts have signed veteran free agent defensive end Josh Thomas and have placed defensive back Marlin Jackson on injured reserve. Wide receiver Anthony Gonzalez underwent arthroscopic right knee surgery yesterday to clean out loose particles, and safety Bob Sanders visited with Dr. James Andrews yesterday to gather additional information on the left elbow injury he suffered last Sunday against San Francisco, the club announced today.
Jackson suffered the left knee injury during a non-contact drill early in Wednesday’s practice. He is out for the remainder of the season. Gonzalez suffered a recent setback in practice that led to yesterday’s procedure. A timetable for his return is not determined.
Gonzo got scoped. No word on what that means. The procedure doesn’t sound bad…it wasn’t reconstructive surgery, so I guess there’s hope.
Bob’s getting his wing checked. Grrr.
Josh Thomas is back…that’s an interesting move.
None of this is good news.
UPDATE: Gonzo is expected to miss 2-3 more weeks. Please note: the Yahoo report yesterday was wrong. It said he had a torn PCL and described him ‘hoping for a miracle’ in order to return. This is not nearly as bad as the Yahoo report claimed.
