The Colts have been relatively healthy for the last few weeks. But they could always be more healthy. Today, they only had three held out of practice.
There were three players who were held out of practice today. Two of those three players are starters, so it would be a shame to not have them available. But the good news is that there were only three players who were held out.
T.Y. Hilton was one of those players. He is battling an ankle injury. He should be ready to go by Sunday. Hilton has been battling an assortment of injuries this season, but he has only missed one full game. That should still be the case come Sunday.
Mark Glowinski also did not practice today. He too has an ankle injury. He was taken out of the game against Houston with that injury for a series. But he was able to come back later in the game. If he can’t go on Sunday, it would likely be Joe Haeg stepping in on the offensive line.
Mike Mitchell still hasn’t practiced with his calf injury. He hasn’t been healthy for a few weeks. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see him miss this game too. But that wouldn’t be so bad if Clayton Geathers is able to play. He has a knee injury that made him practice on a limited basis.
Ryan Kelly has returned to practice the last couple of days, which is huge. If he can come back this week, that would give the Colts their starting center back for their most important stretch of games. He is the centerpiece of the offensive line.
Hopefully all of the players on the report end up being healthy enough to play as soon as possible, especially Kelly.
