The Colts will have Clyde Christensen calling the plays in today's playoff game against the Baltimore Ravens because offensive coordinator Bruce Arians is ill and in the hospital. Arians was taken to the hospital after feeling ill earlier this morning. Christensen, the current quarterbacks coach, was the Colts' offensive coordinator the past two seasons and has been a coach with the team since 2002.
Arians is reportedly doing well -- just not well enough to coach in this game that will kickoff shortly. It's kind of crazy how much coaching drama has taken place with Indy this season, although you can't compare Arians' sickness with what head coach Chuck Pagano had to endure. I don't expect this offense to play differently with Christensen making the decisions. If the Colts lose today, it will be more due to the Ravens' defense than the guy calling the plays.
