Joseph Addai Injury Update: John Clayton Reports Colts RB Could Be Out For Next Few Weeks

Joseph Addai went down during the Indianapolis Colts’ loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday and the long-term prognosis is not good. Addai suffered a hamstring strain and this is par for the course in Addai’s injury-laden career that has never featured a year that he’s started all 16 games.

This time, ESPN’s John Clayton says he could miss 1-3 weeks total, which would further hamper the Colts offense and keep the team out of the playoffs if they’re not already certain of that already. That’s bad news for a running back who has enough ability to make a mark and yet has never been healthy enough to establish himself as a workhorse back.

In his absence, the Colts recent draft pick Delone Carter now becomes even more important as they also face life with their third string quarterback. The Colts face the Bengals this Sunday who are a surprising 3-2 in the AFC North.
