With this nightmare season nearing its end, the Colts have begun to shut down some key players for the rest of the year.
- Safety Clayton Geathers
- Guard Mark Glowinski
- Tackle Denzelle Good
- Cornerback Rashaan Melvin
- Wide Receiver Donte Moncrief
- Tackle Caraun Reid
- Tight End Jason Vander Laan
This list does not include center Ryan Kelly and linebacker Jon Bostic who have both been sent to season-ending injured reserve.
Denzelle Good was injured during last Thursday’s loss to the Broncos after containing Von Miller for most of the game. Good is just the latest in a long list of injuries along the offensive line this season.
Another position group that has been hit hard with injuries this season is the secondary. The Colts will again be without a couple of starters in the defensive backfield as safety Clayton Geathers and cornerback Rashaan Melvin will be on the sidelines in Baltimore.
Like Thursday night’s game versus Denver, Colts fans will be hard-pressed to know a lot of the names in the Indianapolis secondary.

The Colts will be relieved to see Jeremy Maclin on the inactives list for today’s game as they come to Baltimore with an extremely banged-up secondary. With Maclin out, they can focus on shutting down Mike Wallace in the passing game.
The Ravens’ injuries along the defensive line will also help an inexperienced Colts offensive line give Jacoby Brissett some time in the pocket.
