Two of Peyton Manning's top three targets will be sidelined in the short term and in the case of tight end Dallas Clark, possibly long-term.
Indianapolis Colts president Bill Polian said Thursday that Clark -- the team's third leading receiver -- will be out indefinitely with a wrist injury. And Austin Collie, the Colts' second-leading receiver, underwent hand surgery this week that is expected to sideline him "a few weeks", a team source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Polian, speaking at an event in Fort Wayne, told the audience that Clark has "an injury to his wrist, which is a relatively rare injury," the Indianapolis Star reported.
Polian said Clark was consulting with a doctor in Cleveland on Thursday and was expected to return later in the day to discuss his options.
Clark is seeing world-renowned hand specialist Thomas Graham.
Pierre Garcon should resume his role on offense as the WR2 and Jacob Tamme is next in line at tight end along with Tom Santi.
