The Colts will be without their top two receivers for their game against the Steelers tomorrow. Meet the crew that they will be trotting out there.
It has been a rough year for the Colts in terms of injuries. They have had a bunch of people miss games due to an assortment of injuries. The wide receiver position has been especially hard hit. Tomorrow their receiver depth will be tested more than they have before.
The Colts will be without their top two receivers for this game. Devin Funchess has been out since the opener and won’t be back for at least two weeks. T.Y. Hilton hurt his calf in practice on Wednesday and will be out anywhere from 3-4 weeks.
That leaves only four receivers who have played for this team that are healthy. The new number one receiver is Zach Pascal. Pascal has 14 catches for 245 yards and 3 touchdowns. His role has expanded in the last couple of weeks. It will expand even more tomorrow.
Parris Campbell needs to step up as well. The rookie only has 10 catches for 62 yards and a touchdown. He has been fighting injuries most of this season as well. Tomorrow could be the game where be breaks out because he will have an abundance of opportunities.
Chester Rogers has 9 catches for 16 yards and a touchdown. He isn’t used much at all on offense. He might have to be tomorrow. The last healthy guy is Deon Cain, who was a healthy scratch last week. He has 4 catches for 12 yards in what has been a disappointing year.
The tight ends will need to step up and help this receiving corp. The running game will help as well. But this is who the Colts will have to move forward with for the foreseeable future.
