The Colts are trying to be healthy for their final game of the season. Right now, they have several players who missed the first day of practice.
This is the most important game of the season. And it happens to be the final game of the regular season as well. It would be ideal for the Colts if they could be almost completely healthy for this showdown in Tennessee.
As of right now, they had eight players who were held out of practice. Some of those were expected, such as T.Y. Hilton. Hilton hasn’t practiced for the last couple of weeks and has still lit it up on the field. He probably won’t practice all of this week either, but said he will play Sunday.
Eric Ebron is a little bit more uncertain. The Colts thought he would practice in a limited capacity today, but did not do so. He still has not cleared concussion protocol. He is questionable for Sunday’s game, but should progress through the protocol.
Ryan Kelly was held out of practice with his neck injury. His status for Sunday is uncertain. He would be a big loss for this big game. If he can’t go, it would be Evan Boehm again replacing him. Clayton Geathers also didn’t practice with a knee, and it seems unlikely he plays this week.
Matthew Adams missed practice with a groin injury. Ryan Hewitt didn’t practice with a foot injury. He would be a big loss because of the lack of current depth at tight end. Dontrelle Inman was out with a shoulder injury. Quincy Wilson was also held out today with a calf injury.
Anthony Walker did return to practice on a limited basis. The Colts missed him last week against the Giants. Hopefully he can be healthy enough to play on Sunday. Most of these guys should be available for Sunday, and it should be a great game of mostly healthy guys.
