In another positive development, Colts’ veteran wide receiver Reggie Wayne was a full participant in Saturday’s practice and is officially listed as “probable” on the team’s injury report. Wayne was a full participant on Saturday, so it appears increasingly likely that he’ll be ready to go for Monday night’s game against the New York Giants. Cornerback Vontae Davis will likely be a go as well, as he’s been a full participant in practices the past three days and is also listed as “probable”.

Unfortunately, the defense will be without its starting outside linebacker, Erik Walden, who’s battling a hip injury suffered in last weekend’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers and has officially been declared “out”. Chuck Pagano has noted that his status is now “week-to-week”, meaning he could be out for even a few more weeks.
The team will also be without DE Arthur Jones, who’s still suffering the lingering effects from a severely sprained ankle he hurt in Week 2 against the Eagles, as well as its primary back-up ILB Josh McNary. Both have officially been declared out for Monday night.
As another interesting note, Colts’ suspended safety LaRon Landry has served his 4 game suspension and is eligible to be activated from the exempt designation. However, the Colts have already declared him “out” for Monday night’s game and have until Tuesday to either activate or release him. His replacement, Sergio Brown, has outperformed the highly paid Landry in his absence, so it’s clearly a dilemma worth watching unfold.
