Joseph Addai left the Colts-Chiefs game earlier with an injury and apparently it’s a hamstring injury that is likely to keep him out for the rest of the game. That places the pressure on the Colts’ Delone Carter to replace him and become the focus of an offense that’s resting on some back-up parts for its core.
ESPN’s Stephania Bell says that Addai is likely done for the day via Twitter and hamstring injuries often hamper a player’s ability for a few weeks. Addai finishes the day with 6 carries for 19 yards and 0 touchdowns. In his absence, Carter and Domonic Brown will carry the load.
Now the teams are in the fourth quarter, so the running game is going to be key moving forward to controlling the line of scrimmage, keeping the pass rush at bay and running out the clock if needed.
