Surrounded by the media a day after a game that he didn’t participate.
Anthony Gonzalez has been here before-but his answers are no clearer when it comes to his recent health issue that kept him out of another Colts game Sunday night.
“I don’t know the answers to these questions,” said the receiver jokingly on Monday afternoon, when asked about whether an ankle injury will keep him out of Sunday’s game at Denver. “Obviously hoping, I want to play in every game.”
Participating in just a single game has been the norm for Gonzalez over the past two seasons. In 2009 he injured his knee in the first quarter of the Colts opening game against Jacksonville and didnt’ return for the rest of the season.
Against Houston last week Gonzalez caught one pass for twelve yards and then suffered the ankle injury. He was left on the sidelines for Sunday’s game against the Giants and his status remains up in the air again.
“I feel pretty good, I’m a little bit ahead of schedule, from what the trainers and doctors have told me. Obviously some pain but I’m recovering.
“To early to tell, probably.”
The same might be said for linebacker Clint Session, who was a late scratch for the Giants game with a bad hamstring and is unsure whether he’ll be on the field against the Broncos.
“It’s a one day at a time thing,” said Session of the injury. “Just trying to get all the soreness out. I’m not saying we’re up this week and I’m not saying we’re down.”
Head coach Jim Caldwell shed little light on Session’s status for Sunday’s game. The Colts made up for his absense well, allowing the Giants just 120 rushing yards and 14-points in a 24-point victory at Lucas Oil Stadium.
“It’s tough not being out there enjoying the win with your guys, they all feel like they are apart of it, and they all have that feeling,” said Session of watching the game.
In his place was rookie Kavell Conner, who recorded five tackles in his first career NFL start at outside linebacker.
“He ran around and gave us a lot of effort and did somethings well,” said Caldwell of Conner’s play. “He hung in there.”
