The Colts continue to get crushed on the injury front, as more key players have been ruled out for Sunday’s matchup against the Eagles.
The Colts just can’t catch a break. It looked like they were finally on the verge of getting healthy last week. Now they are more unhealthy than ever. Six players have been officially ruled out of Sunday’s game in Philadelphia.
Anthony Castonzo continues to have issues with his hamstring. He still hasn’t played this season and looks to need more time to continue to heal. It looks like Le’Raven Clark will once again get the start at left tackle in Castonzo’s absence.
Jack Doyle has also been ruled out with a hip injury. This is a huge blow. Doyle is one of Andrew Luck‘s favorite targets and is also one of the most reliable. Losing him means that Eric Ebron is going to have to step up and make big catches in critical moments of the game.
Marlon Mack is also ruled out. He played last week, but clearly still isn’t 100% healthy. He is still trying to nurse his hamstring back to health as well, and also has a foot issue. Jordan Wilkins will get the start yet again in his place.
Denico Autry is also listed as out. Autry is a listed defensive line starter who hasn’t done much this year. Part of that has been his healthy issues. But Hassan Ridgeway is also out, so the Colts will have to go deeper in their roster to replace those two along the defensive line.
Quincy Wilson is the last one ruled out. Wilson has not been cleared from a concussion suffered in week 2. He has had all kinds of health issues since he has been in the league. If he can’t stay on the field, his job could be in trouble. Expect Nate Hairston to step up in his place.
The Eagles have their own injury issues as well. Hopefully the Colts can have guys step up and play well in relief work.
