Locker Room Buzz: Indianapolis Colts
By Mike Wells
INDIANAPOLIS -- Observed in the locker room after the Indianapolis Colts' 24-20 loss to Miami Dolphins.
Heyward-Bey to be checked out: Colts receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey is scheduled to get an MRI on his shoulder. He was injured when he went up in traffic and came down hard deep in Miami territory in the second quarter. He left the game and didn’t return. “We’ll see what happens,” Heyward-Bey said.
An empty locker room: Many of the Colts hung around the locker room for quite a while after their Week 1 victory over Oakland. That wasn’t the case Sunday. The players quickly addressed the media and headed out the door after they gave up too many big plays to quarterback Ryan Tannehill and the Miami offense.
Hope the officials are right: Colts receiver Reggie Wayne said he hopes the officials didn’t make mistake on the illegal-shift penalty they called on him in the third quarter that took away what would have been tight end Coby Fleener's second touchdown catch. The Colts ended up having to settle for a 38-yard Adam Vinatieri field goal. “I hope that they’re right, 'cause if they’re wrong, it’s probably going to be a tough pill to swallow,” Wayne said.
