    Listening to the Dan Patrick show right now, and he just reported, according to the Indianapolis Star, that Adam V has a broken bone in his left (plant) foot. Status uncertain for season opener against NY Giants. According to report, Adam V's mother was the source of the story (not kidding!).

    Well isn't that interesting. Perhaps a little thing called karma.

    Anyway I wish him luck in a quick recovery.

    I hope he gets better soon. I don't want the whiney colts to have an excuse when we beat them again.

    I know what it is. It's karma. Looks like I have to add "leaving New England" to my list.

    My name is Adam.

    So what is karma then - playing an integral role in 3 Patriots championships and then having much of the team's fan base turn their backs on you?

    Sounds more like fickleness than karma.

    I'd say it's being absolutely adored and worshipped by an entire fanbase and the turning your back on them.

    I agree 100%.

    Being happy about his injury is just classless. It's never the other way around, Pioli can do no wrong and players should be willing to work for free. I'm more embarassed by what I see from patsfans.com members more and more often.

    I never said I was happy about his injury. In fact in my post I wish him a quick recovery. Besides, I don't think the Pats need the Colts kicker to get injured in order to beat them.

    Its amazing how quickly people bring up the "happiness of an injury", but NEVER read the entire post.

    Colt's Adam is not Patriot's Adam. Patriot's Adam was awesome. Colt's Adam is a nobody to me. It is amazing how our ex-players seem to have problems when they join new teams.

    I'll admit that I am a little happy about it. It weakens the Colts. I HATE THE COLTS.

    I dunno. I'm maybe fans reveling somewhat in a rival players injury is the passion and devotion that makes sports fun. While personally I don't get pleasure from a player getting hurt, I think fans utter devotion to their team is kinda cool. It may be a bussiness to players, owners, and coaches, but it sure as helll isn't for the fans.

    It's a shame. I never like when players get hurt, ours or theirs, but it's part of the game. I'm sure nobody is crying over Chad Jackson's injury over at other message boards.

    Report: Vinatieri has broken bone in non-kicking foot

    Kicker Adam Vinatieri's tenure with the Indianapolis Colts apparently is starting on the wrong foot.

    The Indianapolis Star reported Thursday that Vinatieri has a broken bone in his left foot, which he uses to plant before kicking.

    According to the report, Vinatieri suffered the injury during practice Aug. 14. The Colts are uncertain whether their newly acquired kicker will be available for the team's season opener against the New York Giants on September 10.

    "That's what he told us about a week and a half ago," Vinatieri's mother, Judy, told the newspaper. "They sent him to a specialist. They found a small broken bone in his foot."

    Colts coach Tony Dungy declined Thursday to elaborate on Vinatieri's injury, saying he expected a team doctor to update about the kicker's recovery on Friday.

    Colts spokesman Craig Kelly said that Vinatieri had not suffered any broken bones and that he was recovering from a sprained ligament.

    Arguably the best pressure kicker in NFL history, Vinatieri left his long-time home with the New England Patriots this past offseason and signed a five-year deal with the Colts.

    Vinatieri, 33, made 82 percent (263-of-321) of his field goals in 10 seasons with the Patriots. He has replaced Mike Vanderjagt, who converted 87.5 percent (217-of-248) in eight years with the Colts.

    But Vanderjagt did not come through when the Colts needed him most, missing a 46-yard attempt with 17 seconds left in a 21-18 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC divisional playoffs in January.

    Vinatieri made virtually every clutch kick for the Patriots, helping them become the second team in NFL history to win three Super Bowls in a four-year span (2001-04).

    He kicked a 48-yard field goal as time expired to give the Patriots a 20-17 victory over the St. Louis Rams in Super Bowl XXXVI and drilled a 41-yarder with four seconds left in a 32-29 win over Carolina in Super Bowl XXXVIII.

    The Patriots would not even have made the Super Bowl in the first year of their title run without Vinatieri, who kicked a game-tying 45-yard field goal in a heavy snowfall with 27 seconds left in regulation and booted a 23-yarder in overtime in a divisional playoff win over Oakland.

    Information from SportsTicker and the Associated Press was used in this report.

    It's kind of hard not to read two lines actually. Backtracking aside, his first thought to come out of was "good for him" implied by karma as if playing for another team is some great sin. Usually the first thing out of people's mouths (or in this case typed) is what they mean and then they start moderating it a little bit to appear more sensible.

    I can at least respect that Garbanza is honest. It's one thing to be happy when someone who's actually a jerk get hurts. You guys act way too entitled as if you own the guy just because he happened to be a Patriot for a little bit and that you're all too good for money.

    Fakrissakes! He's got a broken bone in his foot! It's not like he has a brain tumor (sorry for those who are offended by the words "brain tumor"). He's out for a bunch of games, which will hurt the Colts which may help the Pats' playoff scenario. Bad for Manning which is good for me. Adam will be fine, so I'm OK with Pats fans being happy about the Colts' misfortune.
