The Colts have been throttled by injuries all season, but this week they only have two ruled out as of yesterday.
Jacoby Brissett will be back against the Jaguars on Sunday, which is huge for the team. Brian Hoyer was awful a week ago against the Dolphins. But Brissett isn’t the only one who is coming back for the Colts on Sunday. This should help them play better.
In fact the only two Colts ruled out for this game are T.Y. Hilton and Parris Campbell. Hilton could possibly be back next week against Houston, but Campbell won’t be back for a few more weeks still. The other Colt who probably won’t play is Pierre Desir, who is doubtful with a hamstring.
Mo Alie-Cox is a game-time decisions with a hip injury. He isn’t a huge part of the Colts’ gameplan, but could still help the team in running situations. The other player who is a game-time decision is Jordan Wilkins, who has an ankle injury.
Every other Colts player is healthy enough to play, which is really good. They need everyone they can get out there, especially coming off that terrible loss a week ago. Having players available is only half the battle though, as they need to execute better as a team.
Hopefully the coaches can come up with a better gameplan now that they have healthy players. They need to block better in both the pass and the run game. Doing that will give them a really good chance to win tomorrow.
