Colts injury report: Three ruled out against Jags
The Colts have some great news on the injury front. They only have three players ruled out for the game against the Jaguars, while only four other players are questionable.
The Colts have had the injury bug all year long. But it looks like that bug may have finally been squashed. As of Friday, the Colts only have 3 players ruled out for the game against Jacksonville on Sunday, and only three players are a game-time decision.
Those three players out are Erik Swoope, Ryan Hewitt, and Mike Mitchell. Swoope has a knee injury, while Hewitt is out with an ankle and Mitchell gone because of a calf. Kemoko Turay is questionable with a neck injury, and Ryan Grant, Nate Hairston, and Denzelle Good are questionable too.
The Colts also activated Tyquan Lewis to the active roster for the game. So the Colts will finally get to see what the rookie out of Ohio State can do. With that being the case, Turay might sit out this week so Lewis can get some work in. It helps to have that depth available.
It seems that everyone else should play on Sunday. That means the Colts will have both starting safeties back, as well as Braden Smith and Marlon Mack out there. That is great news. The Colts have got to be pleased with the health progress they have made.
Another interesting note to add: the Colts waived Robert Turbin. This move is interesting for a couple of reasons. He was originally going to be the backup to Mack, but then he was suspended. Then he got hurt. So then he got caught on the depth chart by both rookies. Now he’s gone.
The Colts should be able to have most players available for Sunday. That health should translate into a win as long as they execute.
