The Indianapolis Colts’ Friday injury report has indicated that the offense will be without two of its starters in tight end Dwayne Allen (ankle) and Hugh Thornton (knee), as both have officially been declared “out” for Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins.
Additionally, the team may be without nickel cornerback Darius Butler, as he’s listed as questionable with a knee injury. The good news; however, is that both starting cornerbacks Vontae Davis (foot) and Greg Toler (concussion) are listed as “probable”. Both had previously been limited in some of the earlier practices this week. If Butler is out, 4th-year veteran cornerback Josh Gordy (probable) will once again fill-in.
The Colts will get a boost on their offensive line, as starting right tackle Gosder Cherilus is listed as “probable” and should be ready to go for Sunday, after missing last weekend’s game with a shoulder injury and rest. It’s worth noting though that back-up swing offensive lineman Xavier Nixon has been declared “out” with a foot injury. With starting right guard Hugh Thornton out with a knee injury, veteran Joe Reitz will get the start in his place.
Colt Anderson, Safety (Questionable)
Cory Redding, Defensive End (Probable)
Andy Studebaker, Outside Linebacker (Out)
