“No tear. It was just a little strain. That’s the good part about it, it’s not a bad thing that would keep me out for a long time,” Colts RB Joseph Addai said Thursday. “But with hamstrings, I don’t really know how long that will take before I get back on the field.
“I had [a similar injury] three years ago, and it was something that kind of lingered. I was trying to come back and some games I was trying to play with it, and I didn’t actually know that I was delaying myself. This time I’m trying to be smart about it, and make sure that I’m 100 percent before I actually come back.”
The good news is that the injury doesn't sound serious. The bad news is that Addai sounds like he's going to be extra careful with his timeline and not rush back to the field too quickly. Reading the tea leaves, he could be out a few weeks. Delone Carter will be the lead back with Addai out, and Donald Brown will rotate in.
