Colts injury report: Five ruled out of Sunday’s game
The offensive line is in for a battle on Sunday as both starting tackles have been ruled out. Here are some of the other injuries the Colts will be dealing with Sunday.
Anthony Castonzo has been officially ruled out once again. He still has not played in a single game for the Colts this season. Having him out again is a big blow because now both starting tackles are out of the game. Joe Haeg is out with an ankle.
Replacing them will be Le’Raven Clark and Denzelle Good. They will have a tough challenge protecting Andrew Luck from J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney. Expect to see the Colts leave an extra tight end or back to help with protection.
Jack Doyle and Hassan Ridgeway are both out as well. Neither comes as a surprise as neither played last week against Philly. It will probably be a couple more weeks for them both to come back fully healthy. Quincy Wilson is also out with a concussion
Marlon Mack is listed as questionable. I wouldn’t be surprised if he played, but he will definitely be on a snap count. They don’t want to hurt him any further. Expect Jordan Wilkins to get a lot of carries even if Mack does play.
On defense, Anthony Walker and Clayton Geathers are listed as questionable as well. Walker has a groin injury. I would be a little surprised to see him play considering he was limited all week. I would expect to see Geathers out there even though he didn’t practice yesterday.
The Colts knew they had these injuries going into this week, so they should be prepared. But having that many players injured is never ideal. Hopefully they can rally to get a win anyway and be healthier for next week.
