Default Colts McFarland Likely Done for the Season

Colts DT McFarland out for 'long-term' with knee injury


Anthony McFarland
DT, Indianapolis Colts

Quote:
The Colts likely will have to defend their Super Bowl title without a key member of their defensive line.

Defensive tackle Anthony McFarland hurt the patella tendon Friday and missed Saturday's controlled scrimmage after an MRI showed the extent of the injury, the team said. The Indianapolis Star reported that it's believed that McFarland tore the tendon, likely ending his season before it begins.

Colts coach Tony Dungy called the injury serious.

"It's a long-term injury," Dungy said. "We've got some other guys that have to pick up the slack."

Rookie defensive tackle Quinn Pit****, a third-round draft pick from Ohio State, could fill in for McFarland. Pit**** practiced for the first time Monday after missing the first week of camp with a leg injury.

Even with the 6-foot, 300-pound McFarland, the Colts had problems against the run last season, allowing 173 yards on the ground per game. Now Indianapolis apparently will have to replace its best run-stuffer.

McFarland's injury comes soon after the team parted ways with defensive lineman Corey Simon, who missed all of last season with a knee injury and reportedly failed a Colts physical last week.

McFarland was acquired from the Buccaneers at the trading deadline last season.

So with McFarland done for the season and Corey Simon recently being released, the colts d-line is looking awfully thin. Tank Johnson anyone?

They may have to go that route.

The Colts are unbelieebly thin on the d-line and DT in particular - couple that with the losses in the seconday and that Colts D is there for the taking in the first few weeks...if not longer.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

I don't know if Dungy would take a guy with Johnson's past remember he might not have been drunk when he was pulled over but he was drinking and driving. I know that may not be the worst thing ever but a guy that was being watched the way he was by the NFL it was a stupid thing to do.

I agree,Dungy probally doesn't want Tank on the team because he prefers good people.

And I think Quinn Pitt**** (rookie out of Ohio State) will step in and do fine..
