The price of tight ends just went up for fantasy football owners. Indianapolis tight end Dallas Clark, a beneficiary of the prolific Peyton Manning, suffered a season-ending wrist injury last Sunday. This comes a week after Green Bay's Jermichael Finley, another blue-chip TE, saw his season ended by a knee injury. Of course, fantasy leagues will differ as far as which players might be on waivers, but a tight end who could still be widely available because he was so unproductive until recently is Pittsburgh's Heath Miller.

Here are some observations and ruminations about the Eagles-Colts game: Testing Vick The Colts wasted no time testing whether Michael Vick's ribs were indeed 100 percent. Their defense didn't burn a single opportunity to knock the quarterback down in the first quarter. Mind you, Vick wasn't sacked. The Colts just kept hitting him every time he scrambled out of the pocket. All three of the blows could have been deemed cheap. The first drew a roughing-the-passer penalty, but the next two didn't.

Some predictions, thoughts and even confessions to help prepare for one of the great days on the calendar, Fantasy Football Draft Day. LOOKIN' GOOD Observations from last year's fantasy section that we made sure the bosses saw: - Pittsburgh running back Rashard Mendenhall was a live sleeper. What happened: Mendenhall finished seventh in rushing (1,273) and only Arian Foster (16) had more rushing TDs (13). - Houston running back Arian Foster will use the final two games of 2009 as a steppingstone for 2010.

The NFL office hustled up on Monday and reviewed the second-quarter collision from Sunday's game against the Colts in which Eagles safeties Quintin Mikell and Kurt Coleman sandwiched Austin Collie, the Indianapolis receiver finished the play with a concussion, and the Eagles were penalized for something or other. The referees weren't necessarily sure what they were calling, or on whom, but they were very sure that the league office would want them to call something. And right they were.

This time of year, fantasy enthusiasts tend to obsess over their first-round draft pick. Do you go with Adrian Peterson or Chris Johnson with the top pick? What about Arian Foster? Is the middle of the round too early for Aaron Rodgers? Should you grab an elite receiver at the end? While these decisions are important, you'd be better served expending more mental energy on the middle rounds, where championship fantasy rosters are built. After all, while it's interesting to debate whether Foster merits a top-three pick this year, many of those who stole him in the fifth round or later last season rode him all the way to a title.

Hank Baskett got to see the NFL equivalent of Michelangelo painting the Sistine Chapel this season. Now Peyton Manning's masterpiece is nearly complete, thanks to the fine artistry the Indianapolis Colts quarterback achieved during yesterday's AFC championship game. Forced to throw to two young wide receivers who had a combined four catches before this season, Manning has led the Colts to their second Super Bowl in four seasons, and he may have never been better than he was yesterday in his team's 30-17 win over the New York Jets at Lucas Oil Stadium.

HE TOLD A JOKE. A good one, too, not one of his self-deprecating toss-aways intended to throw off the scent. I asked Andy Reid yesterday if he would like to see NFL referees given more leeway to interpret rules, so to avoid the nonsensical calls that nearly awarded the Indianapolis Colts with an ill-deserved victory on Sunday. If, say, they realized the pass rusher was trying to swipe at a ball when a helmet backed into his swing, could they, like NBA referees or even NHL referees, use some common sense and keep the hankies in their pockets.

Eagles safety Kurt Coleman will not be fined for the hit that left Colts wide receiver Austin Collie unconscious, but the NFL said its referees did the right thing in penalizing Coleman for unnecessary roughness. The decision - right call but no further sanctions - demonstrates the balance at play between strictly enforcing rules meant to prevent life-altering injuries and allowing for football's unpredictable, physical nature. A key point in the decision not to fine or suspend Coleman was that Collie was also hit by Eagles safety Quintin Mikell with a legal shoulder-to-chest blow.

Resolute, and with a bit of bravado, Eagles safety Quintin Mikell swore his game would not change after teammate Ernie Sims was fined $50,000 for a hit in Game 7. Then, Mikell lost his legs. Mikell initially was called for unnecessary roughness against Colts receiver Austin Collie, a hit that knocked Collie out of the game. Mikell hit Collie from the front as fellow safety Kurt Coleman closed from the back side. Coleman's helmet collided with Collie's helmet and the ball flew free.

THEY BEAT Peyton Manning, so it couldn't have been that bad. They're 5-3, so it can't be an epidemic. They seem unfairly targeted as a cheap-shot team, so all of the penalties must be bogus. Right? Wrong. Yes, the Eagles' defense held the Colts to 24 points in the Birds' two-point win Sunday, but 21 of those 24 points came as a direct result of sloppy fouls. The sandwich shot from safeties Quintin Mikell and Kurt Coleman that knocked out Colts receiver Austin Collie hurt the Eagles' cause, sure.

We should have known. We should have seen it coming. When the rest of the nation needs a convenient villain, Philadelphia invariably is chosen. The hit Sunday on Colts wide receiver Austin Collie was brutal and unfortunate - a grim reminder that football is a violent game, and careers aren't promised. After Kurt Coleman and Quintin Mikell collided with Collie, the wideout lay motionless on Lincoln Financial Field. Stadium workers, officials, and medical personnel from both teams - almost 20 people total - immediately attended to Collie.

MOST OF THE questions Kurt Coleman fielded yesterday on a conference call with reporters had to do with his hit on Colts receiver Austin Collie, which was no longer such a big deal by the end of the day. Collie seems on his way to recovery from a concussion, and late yesterday afternoon the NFL announced that Coleman will not be fined. The news of more long-term import involving Coleman yesterday was coach Andy Reid's assertion that rookie starting free safety Nate Allen "looks like he's going to struggle to make it for this week," when the Birds travel to Washington.

The NFL is not going to hell in a handbasket, Andy Reid contended yesterday. At his day-after news conference, the Eagles' coach interrupted a lengthy dissection of the unnecessary roughness penalty assessed when safeties Quintin Mikell and Kurt Coleman slammed into Colts receiver Austin Collie to deliver this bulletin: "I think it will all get worked out. I don't think it's going to change the game a lick, as far as ... the hard hitting," Reid...
