The Colts haven’t yet indicated whether Addai, who hurt his hamstring in the first quarter of the Colts’ loss to Kansas City on Sunday, will be available, but the team activated Darren Evans from the practice squad Tuesday. The Colts play the Bengals on Sunday in Cincinnati.
Evans is an undrafted free agent from Virginia Tech who was was Mr. Indiana Football in 2006.
The possibility of being without Addai — and the prospect of continuing to lose — is already raising The Big Question in Indy: Even with Peyton Manning presumably back next season, should the team consider drafting Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck if the first pick in the 2012 draft falls to them?
Owner Jim Irsay told Yahoo’s Jason Cole the team would have to consider it, if, just if, the possibility arose. “Guys like that come along so rarely,” Irsay said of Manning and Luck. “Even if that means that guy sits for three or four years, you’d certainly think about taking him … you see what Green Bay did with [Brett] Favre and [Aaron] Rodgers and you’d like to be able to do the same thing.”
