McCargo has just combusted. Spontaneously. In a bizarre turn of events, ESPN is reporting that a herniated disc has voided yesterday's trade for John McCargo. Yes, the Colts have managed to lose another DT before he ever joined the team. The injury, of which the Colts were unaware, was revealed during a physical today. McCargo will rejoin the Bills and the Colts retain their fourth round draft pick.
Here's hoping LaJaun Ramsey is still available. For the record, the Colts roster lists its current defensive tackles as: Raheem Brock (DE or DT), Keyunta Dawson, Eric Foster, Daniel Muir, and Darrell Reid.
(Insert DZ joke about how we need to enlist Mulder and Scully to find out what supernatural force is offing the Indy DTs).
Here's a much more detailed version of the sordid story by Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star.
