Torn ACL Ends Marlin Jackson's Season

The Colts have had their fair share of injuries this year, and Wednesday in practice they suffered another one ... of the serious, season-ending nature.

Starting cornerback Marlin Jackson suffered a season-ending injury at Wednesday's practice, tearing his anterior cruciate ligament as well as meniscus cartilage that will require at least one surgery and possibly two, a league source said.

These are times when you think it's just not in the cards. Just when Joseph Addai and Bob Sanders are set to make their respective returns, a key starter goes down.

The bad fortunes of the Colts don't stop there. Remember, they made a trade to plug a void on the defensive line ... only to have the trade fall through. The reason there was a hole on the defensive line was because they were forced to cut a problem child. Nearly the entire offense has been dinged, now that Reggie Wayne was held out of practice this week.

Colts fans have had the pleasure of one of the most successful franchises for the past decade. It would seem their run of happiness is coming to a screeching halt -- even if it's just temporary -- this year.
