The Indianapolis Colts received a bit of good news today, as starting cornerback Greg Toler was able to practice on a limited basis Thursday. He did not participate in yesterday’s practice because of a knee injury.

However, given today’s encouraging development, it looks as though he’ll have a pretty good chance of playing on Sunday. The Colts are likely taking it easy with him this week merely as a precaution to give his knee extra time to heal and recover.

It goes without saying that the defense will need Toler to, as they are playing Peyton Manning and a high profile Denver Broncos passing attack.

Quite frankly, they’ll need all the help they can get in their secondary to limit the Broncos’ receivers.

The Colts injury report looks as good as it has all season, as no other player listed was limited or did not participate in Thursday’s practice. In fact, all other players listed on the injury report were full participants, including Jerrell Freeman (abdomen) and Erik Walden (knee), who were both limited participants on Wednesday. D’Qwell Jackson was also a go, as he had been previously been held out yesterday purely for rest purposes.

While the injury report has been cleaned up in recent weeks from the Colts placing Gosder Cherilus and Hugh Thornton on season-ending injured reserve, it’s looking really healthy this week.

Other Indianapolis Colts listed:

Jonotthan Harrison (concussion)- Full participant

Andrew Jackson (hamstring)- Full participant

Henoc Muamba (back)- Full participant

A.Q. Shipley (ankle)- Full participant
