The Indianapolis Colts host the Baltimore Ravens Sunday. The two familiar opponents haven’t faced each other in the regular season for a few years, but there is no love lost between them.
The Colts should finally get inside linebacker Jerrell Freeman back to the lineup this week. Freeman injured his hamstring in Week One against the Broncos and hasn’t played since.
Only two players are confirmed out for Week Five on the Colts roster. Defensive tackle Arthur Jones is still recovering from a high ankle sprain. Rookie guard Jack Mewhort will be also be out with a sprained ankle.
A number of players were listed on the injury report for the Colts, but all are listed as Probable. It is likely most positive injury report in Colts history this far into the season.
Safety Colt Anderson was a full participant all week after battling a groin injury. Outside linebacker Andy Studebaker practiced all week after missing the last game with a hamstring. And guard Hugh Thornton, who was out last week, was back at practice everyday this week.

Cornerback Chykie Brown – Neck, Probable
Defensive end Chris Canty – Illness, Doubtful
Tight end Owen Daniels – Rest, Probable
Defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan – Knee, Doubtful
Tackle Eugene Monroe – Knee, Doubtful
Running back Bernard Pierce – Thigh, Probable
Wide receiver Steve Smith, Sr. – Rest, Probable
OLB Terrell Suggs – Thigh, Questionable
Tight end Phillip Supernaw – Thigh, Questionable
Despite being listed as a thigh injury, Suggs reportedly has a groin strain. He missed two days of practice this week and was limited on Friday. He is still expected to play on Sunday and hasn’t missed a game since 2012. If he can’t, Pernell McPhee would take his spot.
