Injury Updates: Ijalana May Be Out For Season

To add insult to injury (or in the Colts' case, a plethora of injuries), Mike Chappell of the Indy Star is reporting that rookie tackle Benjamin Ijalana may have "damaged" his ACL, and his season is in doubt.

Ijalana played well at LT after Anthony Castonzo left in the first quarter, which was a surprise considering he hasn't played until now. The Colts were already without Ryan Diem for the game and Joe Reitz was banged up as well.

The Colts' injury list for players who will be out most/all of the season now reads as follows: Peyton Manning, Melvin Bullitt, Gary Brackett, Ben Ijalana, and Eric Foster, while Fili Moala's return date is also unknown.

Speaking of Foster, his surgery on his ankle was successful, and he will be returning to Indianapolis via Jim Irsay's private jet in a couple of days. We wish him, and the rest of the Colts, well, and hope to see him soon!
