Eagles Roar Back, Clip Colts at the Wire

Eagles Roar Back, Clip Colts at the Wire

Rich Shultz/Getty Images(INDIANAPOLIS) –  Trailing by seven with five minutes to play, Nick Foles led the Philadelphia Eagles on two scoring drives, the second ending with Cody Parkey hitting a go-ahead field goal with time expiring, as the Eagles clip the Indianapolis Colts, 30-27, Monday night.

The Colts (0-2) never trailed until Parkey hit the game-winning kick. Indianapolis went into halftime up 17-6 after Andrew Luck found tight end Jack Doyle for a two-yard touchdown. The Colts furthered their lead in the second half when Adam Vinatieri’s field goal made it 20-6 with 6:43 remaining in the third quarter.

Despite the deficit the Eagles (2-0) never panicked, scoring on two touchdowns in less than two minutes to finish off the third tied 20-20.  The Colts answered back on their first drive of the fourth quarter when Luck threw his third touchdown of the game, a seven-yard pass to Ahmad Bradshaw, to go back up by seven.

The game stayed that way until the the 3:25 mark when Foles found Jeremy Maclin for a six-yard touchdown to tie it up. The Eagles defense made Indianapolis go four and out before Parkey hit the game-winning field goal.

“We felt we had some plays (in the first half), we just couldn’t make them,” Eagles coach Chip Kelly said. “But we’re going to play 60 minutes and we played 60 minutes.”

Darren Sproles made seven catches for 152 yards and a touchdown in the win.

Andrew Luck lost two consecutive games for the first time since joining the NFL, despite throwing three touchdowns.

Jim Irsay Reportedly Has Plea Deal in Place

Jim Irsay Reportedly Has Plea Deal in Place

Joe Robbins/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay has reportedly reached a plea deal as part of his impaired driving case. That according the Indianapolis Star, citing court officials.

Irsay was arrested in March on a pair of misdemeanor charges. The Colts owner was arrested near his home after failing a field sobriety test. Officers on the scene said he had trouble reciting the alphabet. Police reports showed that Irsay had various prescription drugs and $29,000 in cash in his position at the time of the arrest.

“I cannot provide any details of — or even verify the existence of — an agreement unless and until one would be tendered to the Court at such a hearing,” said Andre Miksha, a spokesman for the Hamilton County prosecutor.

The trial, originally scheduled for Oct. 30, was reportedly rescheduled for Tuesday. While details of the plea agreement were not released, the announcement of the plea will allow NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to deliver his punishment of Irsay.

Colts Release RB Chris Rainey

Colts Release RB Chris Rainey

Scott Boehm/Getty Images(ANDERSON, Ind.) — The Indianapolis Colts released running back Chris Rainey on Monday for a violation of an undisclosed team rule.

Head coach Chuck Pagano made the announcement at training camp and would not provide any details for the reason Rainey was released.

“It’s unfortunate and [a] violation of team rules,” Pagano said.  “It was an in-house deal, that’s all I’m going to say about that.”

Rainey has a history of off-field issues and was arrested back in January 2013 after being charged with one count of simple battery with a woman.

The Colts signed Rainey last season and he played in two games before going on the injured reserve list.

ESPN: Colts RB Ballard Tears Achilles Tendon

ESPN: Colts RB Ballard Tears Achilles Tendon

Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(ANDERSON, Ind.) — Indianapolis Colts running back Vick Ballard tore his left Achilles tendon, according to ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen.

Ballard was injured Friday at training camp when trying to catch a ball during a non-contact drill and had to leave the field on a golf cart.

“When you see someone like Vick Ballard go down who’s worked so hard to get back, it’s tough, but it happens,” Colts owner Jim Irsay said. “As soon as you get to camp, those things happen. He’s still young, and he’s got a full career ahead of him, so we have to do an MRI and see exactly what it is and then go from there. But you really hope to not hear any of that kind of news.”

Ballard only played in one game last season after tearing his right ACL in September.

With Ballard gone, Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw will compete for the starting running back position.

NFL Suspends Colts’ LaVon Brazill for Entire Season

NFL Suspends Colts’ LaVon Brazill for Entire Season

Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(INDIANAPOLIS) — The NFL has announced that they’ve suspended Indianapolis Colts wide receiver LaVon Brazill without pay for the entire 2014 season for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy.

This is the second time in his career that Brazill has been suspended by the NFL. He was banned the first four games of the 2013 season for violating the same policy.

Last summer when his first suspension was announced, Brazill said “it’s either money or marijuana. I know any of you would choose money any day.”

The latest suspension puts Brazill’s future with the Colts, and even in the NFL, in serious jeopardy.

The 25-year-old Brazill was entering his third NFL season, all with the Colts. He was battling it out for one of the final roster spots to make the team.

In 2013, he caught 12 passes for 161 yards and two touchdowns.

Jim Irsay Facing Misdemeanor Charges

Jim Irsay Facing Misdemeanor Charges

Joe Robbins/Getty Images(INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.) — Jim Irsay appeared in Hamilton County court on Friday and was formally charged with two misdemeanor counts stemming from his March driving arrest.

The owner of the Indianapolis Colts was charged with one count of operating a vehicle while intoxicated and one count of operating a vehicle with a schedule I or II controlled substance or its metabolite in the body. Both are C misdemeanors and carry with them a maximum sentence of 60 days in jail and a $500 fine.

Irsay was arrested on May 16 for operating a vehicle while intoxicated. At the time of the arrest, authorities found $29,000 dollars in cash and “numerous” bottles of alcohol in his residence.

“We want to thank the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office for its professionalism in its investigation regarding Mr. Irsay and for devoting the necessary care and attention to determine the facts in this matter did not warrant the filing of felony charges relative to Mr. Irsay’s prescription medications,” said a statement from Irsay’s legal team, Voyles, Zahn & Paul, released on his behalf. “Mr. Irsay will deal with the remaining misdemeanor charges through the judicial process.”

An initial hearing has been scheduled for June 19.

Colts’ Mathis Suspended Four Games

Colts’ Mathis Suspended Four Games

Rob Carr/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Indianapolis star linebacker Robert Mathis has been suspended for the first four games of the 2014 NFL season for violating the league’s performance-enhancing substance policy. However, the drug which Mathis tested positive for is not a common one to football fans.

The linebacker was seeking fertility assistance and was reportedly told by the prescribing doctor that the drug would not cause a problem with the NFL.

“It is difficult for me to address the circumstances surrounding this suspension because they involve very personal medical information,” said Mathis in a statement. “Like many families, my wife and I faced fertility challenges, and I sought medical assistance. I specifically asked the doctor if the medication he prescribed for me would present a problem for NFL drug testing, and unfortunately, he incorrectly told me that it would not. I made the mistake of not calling the NFL or NFLPA to double-check before I took the medication at the end of last season.”

Mathis’ mother, Denis White, was diagnosed with Stage 4 esophageal cancer in August of 2013. Wishing to give her another grandchild, Mathis sought out fertility help from Dr. Steven Morganstern in Atlanta. Due to a health condition that his wife, Brandi, suffers from, Dr. Morganstern advised Mathis begin taking the drug Clomid to help accelerate the process.

The 33-year old began taking the drug in November and stopped after finding out his wife was pregnant. The couple is expecting a baby girl in the fall and Mathis’ mother is still alive.

“The drug for which Mr. Mathis tested positive is not approved by the FDA for fertility in males and is a performance-enhancing drug that has been prohibited for years,” said a statement released by the NFL. “Importantly, Mr. Mathis did not consult with the policy’s Independent Administrator, a physician jointly approved by the NFL and NFL Players Association. Nor did he consult with his team doctor, the team’s training staff, the NFLPA, the league office or the hotline established under the policy to give confidential information to players. Each of these sources would have warned against using this substance.”

Mathis was the league leader in the sacks in 2013, recording 19.5 in his 12th season. He is eligible to return on Sept. 29 following the Colts Sept. 28 meeting with Tennessee. Mathis is still eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason workouts, including team practices and games.
