More bad tight end news
First, it was Jermichael Finley and his knee.
Now, it’s Dallas Clark and his hand/wrist.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Clark is out “indefinitely” with what is being called a hand/wrist injury. Clark sustained the injury during the second half of last Sunday night’s win over the Washington Redskins.
So what do you do from here? For starters, do NOT cut Clark loose until official word comes down that he is done for the season. The veteran tight end is currently getting a second and third opinion to see if he must undergo surgery.
However, owners need to make a move quick to shore up the TE position while Clark is on the shelf. Chiefs tight end Tony Moeaki has a favorable upcoming schedule and the Jaguars’ Marcedes Lewis has been on a somewhat steady roll as of late as well.
Unfortunately for the Colts, Jacob Tamme (Clark’s backup) is a three-year veteran with only six career receptions.
Through six weeks, Clark ranks fifth among tight ends in fantasy scoring, with 51.0 points (standard scoring)
