Tight end Jack Doyle continues to miss practice with a back injury. If Doyle can’t practice tomorrow and misses the game Sunday the expect a big dose of Mo Alie-Cox and more of rookie Kylen Granson.
Left tackle Eric Fisher returned to practice today after missing practice yesterday with a scheduled rest day.
Linebacker Darius Leonard was limited today at practice with an ankle injury. Leonard has been struggling with an ankle injury all season and it continues to be lingering. Leonard should be able to play Sunday but if last week was anything to go off of he will not he 100%.
Left guard Quenton Nelson continues to miss practice with ankle and knee injuries. Nelson is almost certainly going to miss the game on Sunday. Chris Reed will fill in for Nelson at left guard.
Defensive end Kwity Paye missed practice again today with a hamstring injury. Paye injured his hamstring against the Titans and hasn’t been able to practice all week. If Paye can’t play Sunday, which is looking increasingly likely, then expect Al-Quadin Muhammad and Tyquan Lewis to get the start at defensive end.
Right tackle Braden Smith continues to miss practice with foot and thumb injuries. Smith injured his foot against the Seahawks in Week 1 and has been unable to practice or play since.
Safety Khari Willis missed practice again today with ankle and groin injuries. Today marks Willis second day of missed practice and his chances of playing Sunday are getting slimmer. Unless Willis can practice tomorrow then expect either Andrew Sendejo or George Odum to get the start in his place.
Corner back Rock Ya-Sin did not practice again today with an ankle injury. The Colts are already thin at corner after TJ Carrie was placed on injured reserve earlier this week so they can’t really afford for Ya-Sin to be out Sunday. If he can’t play then expect Isaiah Rodgers or Bopete Keyes to start in his place.
Right guard Mark Glowinski missed practice today with a knee injury. Glowinski was limited yesterday but the injury appears to have gotten worse with him unable to practice today. With Smith and Nelson already unlikely to play Sunday the team can’t afford to lose Glowinski too.
Both Quarterback Carson Wentz (ankles) and running back Jonathan Taylor (knee) were limited again today. Both should be healthy enough to feature Sunday against the Dolphins.
