Colts president Bill Polian said TE Dallas Clark will be out indefinitely with an "uncommon" wrist injury.

Polian told WISH-TV that the team is waiting for more test results before determining how long he will be out.

"It's a wrist injury which is relatively uncommon. He's having a third opinion (Thursday) and by the time I get back to the office I suspect I will have heard from him or soon thereafter and can have some discussions about where to go," Polian said.

Clark suffered the injury in the Colts' Sunday night win over the Redskins.

The way we see it

The Colts' bye week is coming at the right time as the injury bug has bitten their offense. WR Austin Collie reportedly has an undisclosed injury and starting RB Joseph Addai suffered a shoulder injury Sunday night. Backup RB Donald Brown has been out along with WR Anthony Gonzalez.

Clark leads all tight ends with 37 receptions this year. He is one of the best in the league and one of QB Peyton Manning's favorite targets.

Fantasy Spin

The grim news that this injury is "uncommon" is a concern for the Colts and Clark's fantasy owners. While there are many productive tight ends in the league this season, Clark is arguably in the top two with Antonio Gates.
