Broadcast: CBSSB Nation Co-Blog: Mile High Report
The very surprising and battle-tested Denver Broncos face our Indianapolis Colts today in an early day that features two of the best teams in the AFC. Why this game wasn't moved to 4:15 PM Eastern, I don't know. It features great players, great coaching, and two great, storied teams with a lot of history facing each other.
As far as injures go, ESPN's morning pre-game is reporting that Robert Mathis will indeed play today. Also, the Indy Star has an article up, via Mike Chappell, that both Charlie Johnson and Ryan Diem will also play. Inactive for the Colts, aside from the obvious players who are recovering from knee surgeries earlier this season, are Aaron Francisco, Donald Brown, De'Von Hall, Tom Santi, Michael Toudouze, and Ervin Baldwin. Toudouze, you might recall, was signed this week after Jim Sorgi was placed on IR. Toudouze being inactive today seems to indicate that Tony Ugoh is good to go today as well.
Colt Homer's FanShot has a full list of the inactives.
This is your open thread for the game. There are also open threads over at the superbly excellent Mile High Report, SB Nation's stellar Denver Broncos blog.
Enjoy the game. Go Colts!
