    Colts starting CB Marlin Jackson Out for Year

    Just read that he torn an ACL in practice yesterday. Sucks for them as he is a promising young player who started seven games for them.

    Anyone know who the replacement will be?

    Also, was Marlin going to be on Moss? Not sure how the Colts assign their CBs.

    Our Colts week guest workhorse had already alerted us to this in his ongoing thread... He will also likely fill us in on the ramifications...;)

    BTW he's a first round pick who has played in all but 2 games since he was drafted in 2005...I believe he's their #1 CB.

    Thanks figured it might have been mentioned in there (not monitoring the thread) but it's pretty big news I thought deserving its own post regardless. Would be very interested to hear his thoughts.

    (Workhorse is one of the better visiting posters on this board.)

    How big of news is it? I hadn't heard of him until this week, personally, but I don't watch teams outside the division too closely. How's their depth at the position?

    If Hayden and Sanders don't play Sunday night, 3/4 of their starting secondary will be out for that game.

    Pretty big deal- Jackson is a good starting CB.

    He's a very solid CB in my opinion. A bit bigger than any of ours at 6' 1" I believe. He would be the pats # 1 if he was on this team. That really hurts their pass defense IMO.

    That is one of the many aspects of III that Bill loves. Talent is only as valuable as it's ability to get on and stay on the field. And play well hurt because injuries are one thing but every player in the NFL is on some level "hurt" past week 1..

    Solid? Yes, but frankly, a bit disappointing this season. IMO, he has been banged up quite a bit this year (but hasn't missed a ball game). we are assuming Hayden will return, so it's a swap, Hayden for Jackson. Our 5'8" Jennings has had his head up his ass quite a bit, but gets the starting nod over second year player Dante Hughes. Jennings is the guy who was assigned to Moss quite a bit in last season's game:confused: Bullitt has been a formidable replacement for Sanders. We look for Melvin to see the field quite a bit, regardless of the status of Sanders. Colts went with 4 LBer's in the Monday Nighter, and they played pretty well. Might look for more of that, especially is Morris is back in your line up. The formula to beat our D is short drops and quick throws, which plays right into Cassell's hands. On offense, Addai supposedly back, if so, I hope he splits time equally with Rhodes. Would be surprised if that were not the case. Despite our piss poor record, and the game not having the hype it would if TB were playing, I still think it will be the loudest crowd of the year. Should be an exciting battle regardless.

    Exactly. EH3 is a popular whipping boy for many, but end of the day he is a gamer, and more often than not when his name is mentioned on a play I am happy and not angry.

    People around here demand perfection, but I can guarantee you can file EH3 under "Don't Know What You Have Until It's Gone."

    It's pretty big since he was their #1 CB and their other starter (Kelvin Hayden) is coming off of injury that had knocked him out of a few games and still may not play. Also two of the back ups (Hughes and Jennings) didn't practice yesterday. One was reported as injury related (Hughes) and the other wasn't (Jennings).

    Marlin Jackson is a heck of a corner as Madden would say. He's the guy that intercepted Brady to clinch the AFC championship in 2006. This is a HUGE loss for Indy and he could be a no. 1 corner for a handful of teams.

    I read somewhere on the colts board that Marlin Jackson tore his ACL and is out for the year, which means he won't play against us on Sunday. I don't wish injuries on anyone. i'd imagine bob sanders has to return to face us on Sunday.

    Tim Jennings will move over to Jackson's spot. Jennings had been filling in for Hayden who they are hoping to have back this week. Jackson is the tallest corner on the roster, so that will hurt going up against Moss. Marlin is a solid CB, but has not been quite as good as he was last year. Jennings scares most Colts fans. I'm not sure who will match up with Moss, they probably won't use much man coverage this week given the situation.

    Jackson is the guy that picked off Brady at the end of the AFCCG to seal the game.

    Who can forget? :ugh:

    To think, Jackson and Hayden were backups to Harper and David in that secondary. Personnel-wise, the Colts defense was underrated that year.

    With Jackson out I think it's time to toss a bunch of 3 and 4 WR sets on the Colts defense.

    Hey nice post, enjoyed your read on things. Someone on this site mentioned how the Colts were finished and out of the playoffs. The Colts are one game out of the wild card. Granted they play some tough teams over the next few weeks, but I'm not counting them out. What a crazy year, right?

    Well that sucks. He got hurt IN PRACTICE. Wow.

    He is a good corner, but he has not been this season at all, teams were picking on him. He has had a nagging shoulder injury all year. And now this?

    Guess it's time to get some more corners in the next draft.

    Hayden is our best coverage corner. He better stay healthy rest of year.

    Sheesh what a year. We have good safeties, wonder if one can fill in at corner at times. I really do think Jackson was hurt all year, he is better than how he has played.

    I think the year the Pats selected Logan Mankins around the #32 pick in RD 1, Marlin Jackson was a very popular pre-draft consensus pick to go to N.E., until IND selected him around #29. As it turned out, it is very probable the Patriots would have still taken Mankins even if Jackson was available at that time. Jackson played very well in their SB win.

    I think you are thinking of Hayden who had the pick six. Hayden and Jason David were our starting corners in the SB. Harper got hurt early in the AFCCG against the Pats.

    This sounds like a very bad injury for Marlin and combined with his shoulder injury too. I hope he can rebound. He is best known for picking Brady off to end the AFCCG.

    I guess Jenning's will replace Marlin who was replacing Hayden recently. We also have Dante Hughes and a few other guys. I hate that Jenning's reminds me of Jason David though.

    I did not like our corner depth going into the season and I still don't.

    Re: Colts starting CB Marlin Jackson Out for Year

    Cassell has really shown improvement as he has gained some experience. Of course, or weak pass rush generally makes any opposing QB look good. I was surprised he didn't look for Moss much. Perhaps trying to lull the defense to sleep, and hoped the Colts would forget about him. BTW, Randy didn't look to "IN" to the game. Caught a pass where it looked like he could turn the jets on and gain some additional yards down the sideline, but he gingerly heads ob. Is that the first game your O-Line was intact? They played well.
