Colts Injury Report: Khaled Holmes Officially Out for Monday Night


The Indianapolis Colts released their injury report for Saturday, and starting center Khaled Holmes (neck) is officially “out” for Monday night’s matchup against the Carolina Panthers.

Having made all 7 starts for the team, the 3rd-year center hadn’t practiced all week, so the injury update is not surprising. However, backup center Jonotthan Harrison will presumably start in his absence.

The 2nd-year pro started 10 games for the Colts last season before being benched for Holmes in Week 15 because of a combination of inconsistency and mental mistakes.

Should Harrison get injured or significantly struggle, look for one of Jack Mewhort, Todd Herremans, or even Joe Reitz to assume starting center duties.

Otherwise, both safeties Mike Adams (hamstring) and Clayton Geathers (knee) are officially listed as “probable”, as both were full participant’s in Saturday’s practice.

Joining Holmes on the inactive list is backup inside linebacker Nate Irving (knee), as well as rookie wide receiver Phillip Dorsett–who’s now rehabbing from a fractured fibula with a 4-6 week timetable of recovery. It’s worth noting that another safety Winston Guy (shoulder) is officially listed as “doubtful” and did not practice Saturday.
