The Colts had already ruled out three players for today’s game earlier in the week. But the full list of inactives has no been released.
The Colts have a list of seven players who are inactive for today’s game. Even with that many inactive, the Colts are still the healthiest they have been all season long. This is the first time they will have all of their starters available.
Denzelle Good, Kemoko Turay, Nate Hairston, Ryan Hewitt, Mike Mitchell, Hassan Ridgeway, and Erik Swoope are all inactive for today’s game. With Turay and Ridgeway being out, it gives rookie Tyquan Lewis an opening for a lot of playing time in his first game.
You never want to be without any players for a game. But injuries are a part of the game. The Colts are actually in a pretty good position right now in terms of injuries. Having all of their starters available is huge for the team today.
It is important that the team does everything they possibly can to stay healthy. Keeping those starters healthy will be the key to the rest of the season. If they can keep them healthy, they have a real chance to make some noise in the division.
The Colts have a good opportunity today. Playing well in the game will show the rest of the division that the Colts should be taken seriously. They can start to make a real run with their easy schedule. Being healthy is the biggest key to making that a reality.
