It’s Sunday, which means it is time for the Blitz. The weekend is almost over, so feel free to panic and breathe into a paper bag.
We will have one game scheduled for Sunday night as the Colts and Giants face each other.
One storyline for New York is about defensive tackle Marvin Austin. Austin is trying to secure his spot on the team, according to a profile by the New York Daily News.
For Indianapolis, it’s all about protecting Andrew Luck, according to the Indianapolis Star.
Also in the Indy Star, Bob Kravitz decided to take Colts owner Jim Irsay to task over Irsay’s Twitter account. Maybe the two can make up and play guitar riffs all day.
Another storyline for the game Sunday night will be Colts running back Donald Brown. The Asbury Park Press has a column on Brown as he competes to stay on the team.
Saturday night was another rough time for the NFL with preseason injuries. New York Jets tight end Dustin Keller left the Jaguars game with a pretty bad knee injury. DeAndre Hopkins of Houston left the game against the Dolphins with a possible head injury. One of the most serious injuries though happened to Broncos defensive player Derek Wolfe. Wolfe left Saturday’s game against the Seahawks in an ambulance after a helmet-to-helmet hit, according to various injury reports.
The roadblocks continue to pop up in Minnesota for the Wilfs as they keep trying to make this stadium deal for the Vikings happen. The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported Saturday night that the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority wanted to look further into the Wilfs finances.
The Chicago Sun-Times has the story on Bears rookie running back Michael Ford.
Finally, we close out this edition with our weekly commercial segment. This week, we have former Colts quarterback Jim Harbaugh in a commercial for Finish Line. And yes, it is very 90s.
Enjoy your Sunday!
