Only a few days away from the game against the Raiders, the injury report is still bleak for the Colts. Several starters once again did not practice.
The Colts might need to put some of their players in bubble wrap because too many of them are hurt right now. The injury report for today is just as, if not more, alarming as Wednesday’s. There are still several players who are out with injuries.
Pierre Desir did not practice because of a hamstring. T.Y. Hilton did not practice because of his quad injury. Same goes for Tyquan Lewis and his ankle, Darius Leonard with his concussion, Al-Quadin Muhammad with his neck injury, and Malik Hooker with his knee.
None of this is a change from yesterday, which is exceedingly concerning. If this holds serve until Sunday, then that would be five starters out for this game against Oakland. The Raiders aren’t that good, but overcoming this many injuries would be very tough.
Jabaal Sheard was once again a limited participant with his knee injury. There is a chance he makes his season debut this week. It would be much needed if both Lewis and Muhammad end up missing the game. They need someone who can rush the passer.
Jonathan Williams was again a full participant with his ribs, and so was Rolan Milligan with his knee. Milligan is the only change from yesterday’s injury report, going from a limited participant to a full participant in practice.
They still have a few days to get healthy, but this doesn’t look good so far early in the season for the Colts.
