Colts MLB Pat Angerer suffered a broken foot in Sunday's preseason opener, and will be sidelined a minimum of six weeks.
The injury requires surgery. It's a huge blow for a run defense that ranked 29th in the league last season, as Angerer could miss upwards of 3-4 games. Angerer was fourth in the NFL with 148 tackles in 2011. He was expected to be the linchpin in new coach Chuck Pagano's 3-4 scheme. According to Pagano, Moise Fokou, Greg Lloyd, Jerrell Freeman and Mario Harvey will all compete for Angerer's spot, but the Colts will explore the free agent market. Keep in mind the Angerer injury for early-season matchup purposes. The Colts face the Bears (Matt Forte), Vikings (Toby Gerhart/Adrian Peterson), and Jaguars (Maurice Jones-Drew/Rashad Jennings) in the first three games.
