Vick has repeatedly said this offseason that he needs to do whatever's necessary to stay healthy and avoid damaging contact, but he just can't manage it. The bruising shot to the ribs he absorbed Monday night in New England was yet another case of trying to make something happen on a play that would have been better off aborted. Vick talks a good game when it comes to changing his playing style, but that's it. Count on this: We won't see No. 7 under center again until Sept. 9 in Cleveland.
The group of tight ends Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen, and receivers Griff Whalen, T.Y. Hilton, LaVon Brazill, and Jabin Sambrano combined to catch 14 passes for 174 yards and a touchdown against the Steelers, and those totals could have been higher if Hilton hadn't let a Luck pass bounce off his hands for an interception. All that youth and potential surrounding him even seems to have rejuvenated Reggie Wayne's game. The veteran Colts receiver had six catches for 74 yards in Pittsburgh, leading Indy in both categories.
