This is the shortest the injury report has looked in a long time for the Colts. They might finally be getting some key players back.
The injury report looked good yesterday, and it looks good today as well. Five players didn’t practice yesterday because of injury. Today that list jumped up to six, but one of them was just for precautionary reasons.
Clayton Geathers is that someone who didn’t practice today after being a full participant yesterday. He has been dealing with a concussion/neck issue. He looks to be on track to play this weekend, which would be a good thing.
T.Y. Hilton looks like he will be back out on the field after missing the last few weeks with a hamstring issue. He was a full participant yesterday and was out there today as well on a limited basis. I would be surprised if he didn’t play against Buffalo on Sunday.
Denzelle Good looks like he might get a chance to start at right tackle this week. He has been dealing with the death of his brother, and hasn’t played the last few weeks. He would probably start at right tackle while Braden Smith slides over to right guard to take over for Matt Slauson.
Denico Autry, Ryan Grant, and Jack Doyle all have yet to practice this weekend, and it looks like they all won’t play this week. Maybe there is a chance for Grant, but it doesn’t look good. Robert Turbin has also not practiced because of a shoulder injury.
This is the fewest amount of injuries on the report the Colts have had to deal with all year long. It’s good that the team is finally getting healthy. The key is to stay healthy and to have those players perform at full capacity.
