Colts injury update: T.Y. Hilton and Jack Doyle ruled out
The Colts’ injury situation doesn’t seem to be getting a whole lot better. Their best tight end and wide receiver have been ruled out of Sunday’s game already.
T.Y. Hilton and Jack Doyle have both already been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Jets. Hilton is still dealing with a hamstring issue he hurt against the Texans. Doyle is still dealing with a hip issue that he aggravated during week 2 against the Redskins.
Neither player being out is good. Hilton is the Colts’ only deep threat, and Doyle is the most reliable pass catcher on the roster. The passing game is suffering without these two threats out there on the field.
The Colts currently have 18 players listed on their injury report, although one of those is not injury related. Denzelle Good did not practice because he is still dealing with the tragic death of his brother that happened last weekend.
Having so many players hurt is a big problem. Darius Leonard is still nursing his ankle, Ryan Kelly has a calf, Malik Hooker has a back issue, and multiple other starters didn’t practice because of various ailments that are tormenting them.
Eric Ebron, Denico Autry, Matthias Farley, Clayton Geathers, and Margus Hunt also did not practice. Ebron has four different body parts hurt. The Colts really need him without having the services of Jack Doyle yet again.
Geathers has a neck injury again, which could be a big deal considering that is what he had do deal with in the offseason. It could be an issue that is career threatening considering this would be the second major neck injury he would’ve had to deal with.
Hopefully the injury report cleans up as the week goes on. otherwise the Colts will have a very limited roster against the Jets.
