INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis signed free agent centre Phil Costa on Thursday. Ahkello Witherspoon Youth Jersey . The 6-foot-3, 302-pound Maryland alum started 20 games over the past four seasons with Dallas. Terms of the deal were not immediately available. Costa is likely to replace Samson Satele, who started the last two seasons with Indy. Satele was released in a cost-cutting move late last week. Costa was originally signed as an undrafted rookie in 2010, and eventually won the starting job. Colts general manager Ryan Grigson said in a statement that Costa was a “physical” centre who will provide “competition” for the starting job. Indy has been busy in free agency, signing a handful of its own players and adding Costa, linebacker DQwell Jackson from Cleveland and defensive lineman Arthur Jones from Baltimore.

Impact of injuryGetting injured is part and parcel of the game. All players accept that. What is most difficult for a player to deal with is a new injury when you are returning from an injury. It happened to Gary Wheeler on Sky Sports two weeks ago in Warringtons win over Salford, and on Saturday we saw Mitchell Dodds break his leg in two places against Catalans, just weeks after making his Warrington debut, which was delayed by his recovery from surgery on a wrist injury. Terry Campese suffered a hamstring injury on his Hull KR return On Sunday, Terry Campese made his long-awaited return from knee injury for Hull KR. He came off the bench but had to be helped from the pitch after suffering a hamstring injury.It can be psychologically damaging when a totally unrelated injury occurs so soon into a players return.Reed makes scoring return Jack Reed is congratulated after scoring Brisbanes second try Speaking of injuries, Jack Reed looked keen to make up for lost time as he scored on his return from a shoulder reconstruction.The England international touched down for Brisbanes second try in their impressive victory over the New Zealand Warriors.Reed played the full 80 minutes at Suncorp Stadium and carried for 110 metres, made 12 tackles and one line break.

The forward made a team-leading 149 metres from 23 carries and 25 tackles.Fellow England internationals Elliot Whitehead and Josh Hodgson featured as Canberra Raiders squeaked home 21-20 against Sydney Roosters, but it was a weekend to forget for Gareth Widdop as St George Illawarra were crushed 30-2 by Cronulla in the southern Sydney derby.Refs feeling the pressure? George Stokes was promoted from the Championship but has since resigned Is the pressure proving too much for referees? Super League is down to eight full-time refs following George Stokes resignation.Stokes was one of two referees promoted from the Championship by the Rugby Football Leagues new head of match officials Steve Ganson on the eve of the new season.That took the number of full-time officials to nine and Ganson expressed the hope that the extra competition for places would help raise refereeing standards. George offered his resignation last week which was accepted, as we felt that it was the best outcome for both parties. Steve Ganson However, Stokes, who is thought to have retained his role as a senior consultant with an IT firm in Manchester, has quit just six weeks into the season, according to the RFL, who say he could revert to refereeing part-time in the Championship if he passes the relevant tests.Ganson said: This was a huge opportunity for George but it became apparent throughout the opening weeks of the season that the commitment and physical demands of the role of a full-time match official were proving too much for him.George, therefore, offered his resignation last week which was accepted, as we felt that it was the best outcome for both parties.George does, of course, have the option to continue his role as a referee in a part-time capacity in the Championship, providing that he reaches the standards set for part-time officials.Carney returns to Castleford Highlights of the Super League match between Castleford and Salford Justin Carney left Castleford under a cloud in the off-season but was adamant he wanted to play when Salford visited the Mend-A-Hose Jungle.

Jake Webster has slapped him across the face first on and then hes lashed out again.Hes a guy whos made a mistake but hes a genuinely good guy.Lancashire lead the way Highlights of Wigans 28-6 victory over Leeds last Friday Its bragging rights to Lancashire in the War of the Roses as they occupy the top five positions in Super League.Widnes sit at the summit while Warrington and Wigan both boast 100 per cent records, with St Helens and Salford also impressing during the opening rounds.
