The Colts will be without three players for sure on Sunday with a few others being game-time decisions.
The Colts knew they were going into their week four matchup against the Raiders banged up. Now we know just how banged up they will be. Three player have been ruled out of this matchup, while three others are questionable and one more is doubtful.
Darius Leonard, Malik Hooker, and Tyquan Lewis have all been ruled out. Hooker will be out for awhile so this is nothing new. Lewis got hurt in the last game so it’s not super surprising. But it is very disappointing to see Leonard still out with that concussion. That makes two straight weeks out because of it.
The three questionable players are Pierre Desir, Al-Quadin Muhammad, and Jabaal Sheard. Desir has a hamstring injury, Muhammad has a neck injury, and Sheard is trying to make his season debut after knee surgery in training camp. All three are game-time decisions.
One more player is a game-time decision, and that is T.Y. Hilton. He is listed as doubtful with that quad injury. It’s almost certain that he doesn’t play. They want him to be healthy for next week’s matchup against the Chiefs. That’s true with all of these guys.
Missing this many players will make the game on Sunday much tougher. They will have to have a solid gameplan and execute it well to win. The Raiders will come in hungry and desperate for a win. But hopefully these guys can all be healthy for next Sunday night in Kansas City.
