Colts place TE Eric Ebron on IR

Recommended Posts

A tough loss, even though Ebron hasn't had the season he did a year ago he's still a talented player.

Can Doyle pick up all the slack now?

Terrible. He turned his career around with the Colts starting last year. I'm guessing he'd be having a bigger year if Luck hadn't retired and didn't have to play musical chairs with Brissett and Hoyer at QB.

He injured his ankle(s) in training camp and has been on and off the injury report all year. He stated that he’d been trying to put off surgery until after the season but the pain became too much. Reich said he was aware of the injury in training camp but was not aware that it had persisted. 
Some Colts fans think he decided to have the surgery now so he can be healthy enough to pass a physical. Those same fans were all about how great he was last year and now are attacking him every chance they can get because he isn’t playing to their expectations. 

As far as replacing his numbers, it’s going to have to be Mo Alie-Cox, Doyle and Ross Travis. Doyle has been doing a lot more blocking then route running this year but Alie-Cox is pretty good at blocking and we also signed Matt Lengel to be a blocker as well.
Travis is more a receiving TE who was still recovering from an ACL injury from last year when he got cut at the 53. He looked promising in 2017 when we claimed him off waivers from KC, before missing all of 2018 with the injury

I think that is a pretty reasonable move om his part, he played really well for you last year and deserves a shot at a decent free agency, not just for his sake but that of his family as well. 

Literally could be the difference in 10 miilion dollars for him.
