Colts' Caldwell not 'certain' if Clark's leg injury season-ending

INDIANAPOLIS -- Colts tight ends Dallas Clark and Brody Eldridge are expected to miss more than a week with what coach Jim Caldwell called "significant" injuries.

Clark injured his lower left leg when he tried to make a sliding catch during the second quarter of Sunday's 31-7 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Eldridge left the game early during the first quarter to have X-rays on his hand. Neither returned to the game.

Caldwell said the Colts will have to sign another tight end this week because Jacob Tamme is the only other player they have at that spot on the active roster.

Asked if Clark's injury could be season-ending, Caldwell said he wasn't "certain."
