The injury bug has not been kind to the Colts this season, and they’ll have some major talent on the sidelines for this week’s crucial matchup with the Browns.

We’ve given you the stats all week about how impossible it is for an 0-3 team to make the playoffs, so we’ll spare you from reiterating that Sunday’s game is a must-win for Indianapolis.

Colts fans already knew that quarterback Andrew Luck and center Ryan Kelly would be out for this week’s game, but the injury report is much longer than that.

Rookie running back Marlon Mack has been battling a shoulder injury all week, and he has been officially ruled out for Sunday’s matchup with the 0-2 Browns.

Wide receiver Chester Rogers has been in and out of practice for over a month with a hamstring injury, and he has also been ruled out for this week’s game.

Rookie linebacker Anthony Walker is also dealing with a hamstring injury, and he will miss his second straight game when Cleveland comes to Lucas Oil Stadium.

Another high-profile rookie Quincy Wilson will also be forced to miss this week’s game. He played really well at cornerback for much of the game against the Cardinals, but he’s been unable to practice all week due to a knee injury.

On the bright side, there were a few players on the injury report that haven’t been ruled out yet. Cornerback Vontae Davis, safety Darius Butler, and linebacker Antonio Morrison all missed last week’s game, but they’re still holding out hope that these three will be in the lineup on Sunday.
