  Colts | Philip Rivers may avoid surgery    Fri Jan 15, 02:26 AM

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers (toe) should be fine without surgery on his injured toe, according to GM Chris Ballard, who added that if Rivers does go the surgical route it would be 'nothing major.'

Footballguys view: Good news for the veteran quarterback here. The Colts and Rivers are going to give things about a month before talking about whether or not Rivers will continue to play for the Colts or move on in free agency. Rivers still has the ability to be a slightly above average starter.

  Colts | Marlon Mack likely leaving Indy    Thu Jan 14, 01:45 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (Achilles) 'deserves a good contract,' Colts general manager Chris Ballard said Thursday, Jan. 14, but added that he doesn't know if the team will be in position to offer the pending free agent one this offseason.

Footballguys view: Mack appeared in one game in 2020, the season opener, before going down with this injury. It's an unfortunate way for his season with the Colts, and likely time with the Colts, to end. Mack has talent but coming off this major injury is going to negatively impact his free agent market.

  Colts | Phillip Rivers has GM's backing    Thu Jan 14, 01:17 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers met with the general manager Chris Ballard for an hour earlier this week, Ballard said Thursday, Jan. 14, as Rivers heads into the offseason pondering his future. 'Do I think Philip can still play? Absolutely,' Ballard said. 'He's going to take some time, and we're going to take some time. We'll meet again in about a month.'

Footballguys view: Unlike his draft classmate Ben Roethlisberger, Rivers did not look washed up this season. The Colts are looking for a young franchise quarterback to take over but bringing back Rivers for one more go would make sense.

  Colts | Philip Rivers uncertain about future    Sat Jan 9, 06:42 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers said he is not sure if he will play next season.

Footballguys view: Rivers played some good football at times this season. He led the Colts to the playoffs and it came down to the last throw against the Bills. Rivers is not washed up and he's set to be a free agent this offseason. The Colts will want to know his plans ASAP so they can make their own plans at quarterback.

  Colts | Indianapolis out of playoffs    Sat Jan 9, 05:29 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers went 27-for-46 for 309 yards and two touchdowns against the Buffalo Bills in the Wild Card playoff game. RB Jonathan Taylor rushed for 78 yards and one touchdown on 21 carries, while RB Nyheim Hines rushed for 75 yards on six carries. WR Michael Pittman Jr. caught five passes for 90 yards on 10 targets, TE Jack Doyle caught seven passes for 70 yards and one touchdown on nine targets, WR Zach Pascal caught three passes for 37 yards and one touchdown on five targets and WR T.Y. Hilton caught two passes for 32 yards on five targets.

Footballguys view: The Colts fought hard in this game. They did enough on offense, especially with Taylor rushing the rock. A missed field goal and a failed fourth-and-goal attempt could have turned this thing in the Colts favor. We'll now have to see if Rivers is going to come back as the team's starter for another year in 2021.
