Colts vs Eagles Injury Report


The Indianapolis Colts host the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday Night Football this week. The Colts are looking to avoid an 0-2 start but it looks like they’ll have to do it without a few key players.

The most damaging injuries for the Colts have occurred on the defensive side of the ball, which doesn’t bode well when facing an offense as potent and fast as the Eagles. The Eagles don’t have any critical injuries to key positions and will be quite healthy for Monday Night’s game.

Colts Injury Report

Running back Ahmad Bradshaw – Full Participant, off Thursday for rest

Safety Sergio Brown – Full Participant, Shoulder

Nose Tackle Josh Chapman – Limited, off Thursday, ankle

ILB Jerrell Freeman – DNP both days, hamstring

Center Khaled Holmes – Limited both days, ankle

DT Arthur Jones – DNP both days, shoulder

Guard Joe Reitz – DNP both days, ankle

Cornerback Greg Toler – Limited, off Thursday, ribs

WR Reggie Wayne – Full Participant, off Thursday for rest

(DNP – Did Not Participate in Practice)

It doesn’t look good for Holmes this week to return to the starting lineup. That would mean A.Q. Shipley would get the start once again. Shipley had a solid game, but missed a couple blocks in the rushing attack that cost the Colts yards.

Freeman playing on Monday is looking grim, and hamstring injuries can be tricky. That would mean Josh McNary would get the start against the Eagles. While McNary played fairly well against the Broncos, he only saw the field for 16 snaps.

The Colts are looking thin across the offensive line with Jones and Chapman both sidelined. With LeSean McCoy at running back for the Eagles, the Colts can’t afford to have an underwhelming defensive front and linebacking corps. Right now, both units won’t be at full strength.
