    no ones gotta be worried bout jake, ya maybe the coaches are rushing him back I don't think that's the case though because im sure they know how badly we need him all season and if there was any worry he would get seriously hurt they wouldn't risk it.

    they must think theres no further chances of major injury than there would be any other week

    Some of You guys are silly, there is no other reaction to this than to rejoice! We weren't going to win with Fitz that's for damn sure.

    Colts are playing the broncos who just got Von miller back. This is our chance to get the divisor tie going into the bye.

    I think most are very happy to have locker back, everyone knows Fitz is garbage. Some of us are just uneasy about rushing him back and possibly losing the starting QB for the rest the season if something goes wrong. Because then... It's totally a wash.

    This could be the game where I can finally compare Locker to McNair.. But only if Locker can pull off this win.

    Knowing Munch and this overly conservative staff, I feel certain they are not trying to push their luck at this point. I really believe Locker was just being overly cautious himself the whole time. Now knowing he felt pain in his hip *and* knee after the hit he must have thought there is no reason to get up and risk walking on that leg. Get carted off and get the MRI and see what happened. It all worked out swimmingly

    I can't help but feel that locker is being rushed back. I am gonna hold my breath on every hit he takes tomorrow. I am happy he is back but holding my breath.

    Realism? Ah... Yea sorry if you live in wonder land but the stuff all make sense. I'm not hoping for any of that of course but this has been a very fast recovery and it needs to be questioned if this is best for the team in the long run.

    as much as I want him back and we need him back I am holding my breath until the game is over tomorrow. Consider the colts play the broncos sunday, we have bye next week and then we face the rams and jags after the bye we need to be careful with him tomorrow and I am honestly surprised by this decision

    Hopefully he is healthy enough and a very unlikely chance of reinjury. Otherwise this is a desperation move that could blow up in our face
