Better to let Harrison sit this one out and continue to heal then put him in when he isn't ready.
There is still more games to play and, win or lose, it isn't worth the risk to further injury and losing him for the season.

harrison injury will bother him to whole year, we should trade harrison now. Reggie Wayne is better, and Peyton Manning doesn't look his direction in games anyways.

So... Marvin can't be troubled to "rub a little dirt on it" and play in the biggest regular season game in NFL history? What a wuss (wimp plus something else). Too bad I can't watch Rodney lay his feminine form out on the turf just like Ty and Lawyer used to back when. Did Bill Polian fail to get another rule change to keep your precious receivers from getting owies on the field? Awwww....

This Marvin thing scares me and maybe its a little more serious than the Colts are letting on?? I sure hope to god he plays this weekend.

And congrats to the Sorgi's! It's nice to know you guys will be around a little longer!

Anyone else have a sick feeling in their stomach about Marvin? Something isnt right here. You dont miss 4 weeks with a bruised knee. Maybe with an MCL sprain, but not a bruise.

Marvin always has huge games against the Pats, so hopefully they are just playing games with the Pats and their injuries. I dont like the thought of having to put Gonzalez out there because Bellicheat will completely take away Reggie if that happens. Everyone knows he likes to take away your #1 option and force you to go to #2 or #3.#2 isnt bad in Dallas Clark, but then there is a huge fall off to Gonzalez and Utecht and Moorehead.

I am praying that I hear Marvin practiced fully today later this evening.

If Marvin can't play in the biggest game of the season, he might as well take the rest of the season off. A "bruised" knee, c'mon. Your a professional football player and you can't handle a "bruised" knee. GET REAL!! Maybe it is worse than what they are saying, but they need to say it then.

It would be interesting to know the true extent of Harrison's injury? If he is unable to play in a game against New England I would venture a guess his injury is more severe than reported. I understand this is not a play off game but San Diego is a tough game too and the other division teams are still in the race.

Once again because I know your slow...MIKE MARTZ of THE ST. LOUIS RAMS in 2004 brought up the enforcement of downfield holding....not Polian...
NO RULES WERE CHANGED! DOWNFIELD HOLDING is a penalty! Got it? Stop spreading untruths....and please put down the BB KOOL-AID....

Anyone who thinks this game is not crutialbecause it is not a playoff game is mistaken. The Colts need home field advantage in playoff games. The Patriots do not lose
playoff games at home.Dome teams are
at a disadvantage outdoors in playoff games. You can look up the statistics.

Is is possible Dungy is just playing some mind games with the Pats, making it difficult for them to prepare defensively. It's got to be more difficult for them to prepare not knowing if Harrison will be in the game or not.

I can't believe anyone is questioning Marvin Harrison's dedication and fortitude. For crying out loud, he played with a hand/wrist injury for most of one season refusing medical treatment because he knew that the doctors wouldn't let him play if they knew how bad it was.

If Marvin can't play due to any sort of injury, you've gotta believe that it is serious. Did you see the play where he was injured? It looked bad.

I'm sure women LOVE your form way more than his. I'm sure you're better looking, and I know so many women like men who talk without being able to back it up. I also firmly believe that history will look back at Marvin being AT LEAST the second best receiver in history... and his game is and has been better than ANY Pat, Moss included. All Marvin does is his job, FLAWLESSLY. Can you say the same?

I wouldn't worry at all about Sanders, they hold him out of a couple practices every week because he doesn't slow down, and it wears on his AND the team's bodies. That's the "team decision".

Rodney Harrison! Don't make me laugh, Mr. HGH himself, Mr. Cheap Shot artist. All he would be doing is trying to grab and hold Marvin because he can't cover him. Also another clueless Patriot fan complaining the rules were changed when they were there all along. Moron! Just like the rule on videotaping was just made this year right?
The Colts are a complete team, if one can't play they have backups that can step up and do the job. The backups practice as if they are going to be starters, that is what Dungy teaches and instill them, when they are needed they are more then capable. Everyone including the genius experts(Collingsworth included) said the Colts defense was in serious trouble when McFarland and Morris got hurt in preseason. The opposition was going to run right over them. Well that didn't happen did it? Undrafted rookie Ed Johnson stepped in ans is playing better then Booger did. No Morris, no big deal, Boiman is there, no Keiaho, no worries Hagler takes over.
So as much as I would love to have Marvin play this weekened I have confidence that Anthony Gonzalez will step up and make some big plays to help the Colts win.

Trade Harrison??? That would be one of the worst decisions that the Colts could make short of trading Manning. Yes, Marvin's receptions have gone down but he is still a pro bowler. The major reason that Wayne is able to do so well is that Harrison is double teamed most of the game, taking a great amount of focus off the rest of the recievers. If you know anything about football or the Colts offense, you would know that now with Wayne being equally as dangerous as Harrison, will cause more teams to key on on Wayne as well which will either free up Marvin again or create a better run game or more passes to the tight ends. Though Harrison isnt getting as many yards as he once did, he is still an incredibly important part of the team.
