Insight: He was excused from the game as a precautionary measure, but this is definitely raising eyebrows as the Colts have a history of devastating defensive injuries. For now, don't overreact, but definitely keep an eye on this situation.

Description: Colts DL Robert Mathis wants a new deal and it's pretty obvious that he's ready to sit out the season until he gets one. SOURCE: FOX SPORTS
Insight: Mathis signed a five-year deal for $30 million in 2006, and (so far) has collected over $27 million of it. A person close to Mathis was recently quoted as saying... "He'll never play another snap there under that (existing) contract." Mathis probably deserves a new contract, but the Colts aren't likely to give it to him, meaning he could be traded or might just have to sit the season out.

Description: Mathis had a huge day against the Ravens, tallying three sacks to go with six solo tackles and a forced fumble.
Insight: Mathis is often among the league leaders in forced fumbles and is a constant threat for a multi-sack game. He's generally worth a start in a DL spot. (SportsBuff.com)
