The Indianapolis Colts received some encouraging news during Wednesday’s practice, as the offense finally looks fully healthy for the first time since the early weeks of the regular season.
While Mewhort figures to be immediately re-inserted at starting left guard, it’ll be interesting to see whether the Colts opt to start Reitz or rookie Joe Haeg at right tackle.
If I were a betting man, I’d lean towards the latter given that Reitz is still coming off a concussion, and Haeg has shown a great deal of promise despite the occasional rookie mistake.
Regardless, it’s the healthiest the Colts have been along the offensive line since the beginning of the season, even though starting right guard Denzelle Good missed Wednesday’s practice with an illness.
Meanwhile, 2nd-year defensive lineman Henry Anderson was a full participant in practice again, which would provide a much needed run-stopping boost for a defense that has to find a way to slow down DeMarco Murray and the Titans top rushing attack with the most rushing yards at 1,452 yards in the entire NFL on the season.
Otherwise, the Colts secondary is currently in a state of flux. Veteran safety Mike Adams (rest/groin) was able to participate on a limited basis Wednesday, while starting cornerback Patrick Robinson did not participate with a groin injury of his own–limited to rehabilitation work.
Both players figure to start for the Colts if healthy come Sunday.
Outside linebacker Chris Carter (hamstring) was also a full participant in practice on Wednesday–adding to the Colts defensive depth.
