The final injury report is out for the game tomorrow, and it looks like several key players are game-time decisions. Here is a full list of who’s out and who could be in.
The Colts play their Thursday night game tomorrow against the Texans. They could be without several key guys, although some could be coming back for this game. The full injury report before the game has been released, and four players are ruled out.
None of these players ruled out are a surprise. Marlon Mack is out with a broken hand. Same thing with Parris Campbell, although he once again was listed as limited during the walkthrough. Khari Willis is out with a concussion. Shakial Taylor has been ruled out with an ankle injury.
There are also four guys who are listed as questionable for the game. Mo Alie-Cox and his thumb injury are one of them, as is another tight end Eric Ebron with his ankle injury. Rock Ya-Sin is questionable with an ankle as well. Lastly, T.Y. Hilton is questionable with his calf injury.
All of these guys were listed as full participants had there been practice. If I had to guess, I would say all of these will play tomorrow. Hilton playing would obviously be huge for this team. He owns the Texans, especially when the team plays in NRG Stadium.
Another big development is that Pierre Desir will be back for this game. It will be the first game he’s played all month as he has missed the last three with a hamstring injury. That is great news because he will likely be locked on DeAndre Hopkins all night long.
It also looks like Jordan Wilkins will play as well. Wilkins had missed the last couple of games with an ankle injury. Now he gets to share the backfield with Jonathan Williams. It will be interesting to see who gets the bulk of the carries between the two players.
The Colts are finally getting a bit healthier, and it couldn’t come at a better time. Hopefully Hilton plays in this game, because they need him more than the others listed as questionable.
