Colts Good in Jacksonville

The Colts showed resiliency and poise in holding off the Jaguars in Week 2 and remain on top for the AFC South. Now Indy (3-0) will need to keep its focus as it visits the New York Jets on Sunday (1 p.m. ET, CBS).

A letdown might be expected after an emotional win over a division rival, but the Colts realize that any lapse against a Jets team that is a surprising 2-1 could be costly.

"We have enough players who have been around here for a long enough time that they’re able to respond and focus on the upcoming opponent," quarterback Peyton Manning said.

Colts Looking Sharp

Well two weeks in and the Colts are looking sharper than ever.

With the offense working efficiently, and with the defense creating chaos early, Indianapolis (2-0 in 2006) dominated throughout the 2006 home opener, taking a 14-point first-half lead en route to a 43-24 over the Houston Texans (0-2) in front of 56,614 on Sunday afternoon at the RCA Dome.

Manning completed passes to nine different receivers, finishing with his seventh career 400-yard game. Reggie Wayne and Marvin Harrison each had more than 100-yards receiving, with Harrison passing Art Monk into fifth place on the NFL’s all-time receptions list.

Vinatieri Hurt In Practice

Adam Vinatieri the prized kicker of the Indianapolis Colts went down with an injury in last weeks practices. Apparently he went over on his non kicking foot while doing running drills at practive.

The Indianapolis Star is reporting he had a fracture in his non kicking foot.

He is listed as unlikely to be in uniform for the team's final preseason game Sept. 1 against Cincinnati.

If the Colts don't Vinatieri back for the start of the season, this will be a majour blow to the team. Let's just hope the injury isn't as bad as it sounds.
