Insight: Brackett has been injury prone the last few seasons, but the Colts will hardly miss with the emergence of Pat Angerer. Brackett is due $5 million next season, so we might have seen the last of him in Colt blue.

Description: Brackett will miss the Colts' first playoff game because of the lower leg fracture that cost him the final four weeks of the regular season.
Insight: Buster Davis should continue to start in his place. There probably aren't too many IDP leagues floating around for the playoffs, so Brackett's absence shouldn't make too much of a difference for fantasy owners. Brackett was in the lineup in the first meeting, when the Chargers compiled 394 yards and 20 points on offense and suffered just two sacks and one turnover. (
