Colts Injury Report: Week 17 Against The Texans

New, comments

Who's in and who's out for today's match-up with the Texans.

USA TODAY Sports

The Colts listed seven players as inactive for today's regular season finale against the Texans, and none of them were surprises:

  • DE Cory Redding
  • SS Tom Zbikowski
  • NT Antonio Johnson
  • RB Delone Carter
  • OC Samson Satele
  • WR Nathan Palmer
  • OT Tony Hills

Line-up changes include A.Q. Shipley at center, Joe Lefeged as SS, Lawrence Guy for Redding at DE, and Martin Tevaseu at NT for Mookie. Mewelde Moore will back-up Vick Ballard at RB and, likely, looking for a little redemption against the Texans. Moore's goal-line fumble three weeks ago likely cost the Colts a chance at the AFC South division title.

With no surprises on the inactive list, this strongly suggests that the Colts will do what Chuck Pagano has said they will do all week: Play their starters. Play to win. All four quarters.

This list also suggests that RT Winston Justice will play today, as will OG Joe Reitz. This means that, sans Satele, this is the healthiest the Colts offensive line has been in weeks. It will be interesting to see if they do a better job containing Texans defensive stud J.J. Watt.
