Description: Indianapolis Colts linebacker Robert Mathis suffered a torn Achilles' tendon while working out in Atlanta last week and is out for the season.
Insight: Mathis was in Atlanta working out because of his suspension for the first four games of this season for violating the substance abuse policy. The Colts looked like they missed him as they put very little pressure on Peyton Manning Sunday night. Indianapolis will have to look for a pass rush somewhere else without Mathis this season.

Description: Indianapolis Colts DE Robert Mathis suffered a right hamstring injury in the first quarter of the third preseason game Friday and did not return. SOURCE: INDY STAR
Insight: He was excused from the game as a precautionary measure, but this is definitely raising eyebrows as the Colts have a history of devastating defensive injuries. For now, don't overreact, but definitely keep an eye on this situation.

Description: Colts DL Robert Mathis wants a new deal and it's pretty obvious that he's ready to sit out the season until he gets one. SOURCE: FOX SPORTS
Insight: Mathis signed a five-year deal for $30 million in 2006, and (so far) has collected over $27 million of it. A person close to Mathis was recently quoted as saying... "He'll never play another snap there under that (existing) contract." Mathis probably deserves a new contract, but the Colts aren't likely to give it to him, meaning he could be traded or might just have to sit the season out.

Insight: Mathis led Indianapolis with 11.5 sacks last year, so it makes sense that they want him on the field as much as possible. (

Description: Mathis had a huge day against the Ravens, tallying three sacks to go with six solo tackles and a forced fumble.
Insight: Mathis is often among the league leaders in forced fumbles and is a constant threat for a multi-sack game. He's generally worth a start in a DL spot. (
