The Colts practiced on Monday just 24 hours after their game against the Bills as they prepare to host the Broncos on Thursday night. Their injury report provides a positive update on center Ryan Kelly, but wide receiver Donte Moncrief remains out.
Center Ryan Kelly
Ryan Kelly seemed to be progressing through the concussion protocol last week, but he was unable to pass all of the required tests for him to suit up in Buffalo on Sunday.
Kelly’s concussion has kept him on the sidelines for the past two games, but he was a full participant at Monday’s practice. This is an encouraging sign as the Colts prepare to face another fierce defensive line this week.
Wide Receiver Donte Moncrief
Donte Moncrief couldn’t practice at all last week with an ankle injury, and that continued at Monday’s practice.
Denver may have the NFL’s best trio of cornerbacks, and Jacoby Brissett would love to have a healthy set of weapons to attack the Broncos’ pass defense on Thursday night.

Quarterback Jacoby Brissett
Speaking of the Colts’ quarterback, Jacoby Brissett was listed on Monday’s injury report with a quad injury. Luckily he was able to fully participate in practice, but it’s worth keeping an eye on his status leading up to this week’s game.
Cornerback Rashaan Melvin
Rashaan Melvin has missed each of the last two games after suffering a hand injury on an interception against the Titans. His injury has been described as “significant” by Chuck Pagano, but the Colts haven’t ended his season by sending him to injured reserve.
Melvin missed practice again on Monday, and he probably won’t be able to play on Thursday.
