Injuries will keep Colts' top 2 tight ends out

BY foxsports • November 7, 2011

Colts tight ends Dallas Clark and Brody Eldridge are expected to miss more than a week with what their coach calls ''significant'' injuries.

Clark injured his lower left leg when he tried to make a sliding catch in the second quarter of Sunday's 31-7 loss to Atlanta. Eldridge left early in the first quarter to have X-rays on his hand. Neither returned to the game.

Coach Jim Caldwell says the Colts will have to sign another tight end this week because Jacob Tamme is the only other player they have at that spot on the active roster.

Asked if Clark's injury could be season-ending, Caldwell said he wasn't ''certain.''
