Colts lose Dallas Clark for season

By Marc A. Greenberg

Pro Bowl tight end Dallas Clark was put on injured reserve Friday and will have season-ending wrist surgery. Clark said he met with three surgeons before the decision and plans to return next year for a ninth season.

Clark ranks third on the team with 37 catches for 347 yards after catching 100 passes for 1,106 yards and 10 touchdowns last season, when he made the All-Pro team. The Colts did not say how or when Clark was hurt, but he appeared to grab at his left wrist during a play in Sunday’s win at Washington.

The Jets biggest weakness after last season was the inability to stop the Colts passing game. Now, with Clark out, the Colts are a much weakened team.
