Colts Inactives At Dolphins: Donte Moncrief Set to Play
The Indianapolis Colts announced their inactive players ahead of Sunday’s 1 PM EST matchup against the Miami Dolphins:
"QB Andrew Luck (abdomen/kidney)S Winston Guy (hamstring/shoulder) S Colt Anderson (ankle)CB Glover-WrightILB Josh McNary (groin)OG Lance LouisDE Kelcy Quarles"
Of course, the biggest news is that Donte Moncrief, who was “questionable” with a toe injury, looks like he’ll play today. Battling a toe injury last week against the Houston Texans, Moncrief caught 5 receptions for 51 receiving yards and a touchdown.

Otherwise, Matt Hasselbeck is healthy enough to make the start today. He was listed as “probable” earlier this weekend, and he should be under center to make his 6th consecutive start in relief of Andrew Luck.
The Colts will need an improved performance from their 40 year old quarterback, who has been battling a number of physical injuries and has struggled in his past 3 starts–all of which have been losses. Last week, Hasselbeck was 17 of 30 throws (56.7%) for 147 passing yards, 1 touchdown, 1 interception, and a passer rating of 66.9.
Along with Hasselbeck, the Colts offense has struggled mightily in recent games. The offense has mustered just 2 offensive touchdowns in their past 3 games.
While the Colts are still a considerable longshot to make the playoffs, winning today could keep alive what little remaining hope they may have–at least for another week.
