    Default Corey Simon Out for the Season

    Just announced on WTHR - said it was because of an illness, not injury. They didn't say what it was. Not life-threatening and they hope he can return next year.

    You better hope someone figures out how to defend the run.

    I'm glad it's nothing that's life threatning! But this really sucks!

    Welp, at least it's not life-threatening.

    There goes the whole "When Corey returns the D will get better."



    That's what happens when I try to be positive and say I think he'll be back after the BYE sometime.....

    I had a feeling going by Polians comments lately this was going to be the case. Terrible for Simon and the team.

    Hope he is ok, on the only half way bright note, at least everyone now knows , Simon is not returning. So others have to step up now, no question

    Why Not Us ?

    Seeing they mentioned the Mayo clinic, I would have to guess it's something relatively serious. Maybe something like Prostate cancer?

    I was thinking Leukemia myself though I guess speculation won't get us anywhere.

    I do hope everything turns out OK for Corey and his family.

    However, I thought I would throw a poll out from here.

    Indianapolis pro sports teams miss more games for more reasons than?

    A. Any one or combination of teams in the NBA.

    B. Any one or combination of teams in the NFL.

    C. The combination of all teams in all leagues.

    D. Just the Western Hemisphere

    E. The entire global sports world.

    He's too young to have prostate cancer. Testicular cancer would be the way to go if you want to guess age appropriate cancers - and those would be life threatening...

    I know why the Eagles cut him loose after all these injuries.

    I'm pretty sure you can have prostate cancer at any age, but it's not worth getting into an argument about. It's rare, but I think it's possible. Praying for Corey.

    This stinks, we really need a big d-lineman to clog up the middle now. Thoughts and prayers go out to Corey....whatever it is, it can't be good.

    Just speculating, but I thought Mayo was known more for heart disease problems?

    Interesting Rumor:

    POSTED 8:39 a.m. EDT; UPDATED 9:32 a.m. EDT, October 6, 2006
    SPECULATION SWIRLS ON SIMON
    With the Colts abruptly placing defensive tackle Corey Simon on the non-football injury/illness list on Thursday, ending his season and allowing the team not to pay him any more of his $2.5 million base salary this season, the absence of any hard facts regarding the events that led to the decision is resulting in plenty of talk and speculation in league circles.
    We initially heard scuttlebutt that Simon developed an infection in his knee after arthroscopic surgery. If, however, the infection arose due to knee surgery for a football injury, how can it be a non-football illness? If the player didn't use team physicians for the surgery, the Colts might be able to argue (with a straight face) that the resulting condition was not related to football. If a team physician did the cutting that resulted in the infection, there's no way (as we see it) that the Colts could call this anything other than a football-related condition.
    We're now hearing speculation (and it's only speculation) that the "illness" is either Simon's obesity -- NFLN's Adam Schefter reports that Simon is tipping the scales (and breaking them) at 370 pounds -- or a dependency on painkillers.
    If Simon developed an addiction to pain medication due to his knee surgery, we still don't see how it's not football related. Dependency on pain medication post-surgery is as common a complication as a staph infection. Absent proof of a pre-existing dependency, Simon was only in position to be taking pain medicine because he needed surgery for a football injury.
    Schefter reports that the Colts and Simon are trying to work out an agreement of some sort, and that the NFLPA is prepared to get involved. Schefter also says that the Colts are very sensitive about the issue. And for good reason; the appearance to a neutral observer is that the Colts are having buyer's remorse as to the five-year, $30 million contract they handed to Simon in 2005, and that they're simply looking for a way to get out from under it.
    Such conduct, if true, fits with the general reputation of Colts president Bill Polian in league circles. He's regarded as a guy who insists on getting his way, even if it means bending a few rules and/or flat-out ignoring them.
    Stay tuned. We have a feeling that this one is far from over.

    "Like [Jonathan Bender], AMC's Pacer was supposed to be fitted with a rotary engine--but both rotaries had technical problems late in their development (read: after incurring heavy research costs) that prevented them from seeing the light of day. Of course, both vehicles had plenty of problems that did reach production. The Pacer was a dud in terms of quality, execution and particularly styling. Make your own assessment about its bizarre proportions, but don't miss the one door that's bigger than the other."

    I must really be old because I don't know or remember what I did. Someone please refresh my memory.

    By the way, even in this day and age of high tech medicine I still consider Leukemia and any any form of cancer life threatening.

    After reading something on RATS and just googling, I found this on Wikipedia. Consider the source. This could easily be rumor. I have no inside information. Take it with a grain of salt.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polyarthritis

    Polyarthritis is any type of arthritis which involves five or more joints - an inflammation of two, three or four joints is an oligoarthritis.

    Polyarthritis is most often caused by an auto-immune disorder such as Rheumatoid arthritis, Psoriatic arthritis, and Lupus erythematosus but can also be caused by infections. It is recommended that individuals with this affliction sleep on a firm mattress and a flat pillow. Polyarthritis may be experienced at any age and is not gender specific.

    Corey Simon, a defensive tackle on the Indianapolis Colts, was diagnosed with polyarthritis and will miss the remainder of the season.

    Robertmto: I say he'll be 100% by week 10.

    Grace: I say you're young and haven't been beaten down by life yet. All this positive thinking is bad for your health

    Robertmto: Noted. I think he'll be out for the season.

    Sometimes I hate it when I'm right.

    You know in a way you were right. He's 100% not going to play by week 10.
