Colts Injuries: CB Greg Toler And FB Stanley Havili Are Out, RB Trent Richardson Questionable

The Colts look like they'll be minus some key people when they face their old coach this Sunday.

For Friday's practice, the Colts saw wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey (ankle) and safety Delano Howell (neck) fully participate while corner Josh Gordy (groin), running back Dan Herron (ankle), safety LaRon Landry (toe), and running back Trent Richardson (calf) had limited participation.

Fullback Stanley Havili (concussion), linebacker Kavell Conner (ankle) and corner Greg Toler (groin) sat out of practice. All three are ruled OUT for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

For Toler, his groin injury is going to keep him from playing against his old team, the Cardinals, who drafted him in the 4th round in 2009.

It also means that, for the fourth straight week, Toler isn't on the field helping a pass defense that has been woeful since the bye week. Quarterbacks named Case Keenum, Ryan Fitzpatrick, and Kellen Clemens have been made to look like Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, and Drew Brees by this befuddled Colts secondary. Indy has allowed 790 passing yards and 6 TDs in three weeks. They have don't have an interception since their Week 7 win over Peyton Manning and the Broncos.

With Havili also out, the Colts do not seem to have a healthy fullback, a key component of offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton's system. With Trent Richardson listed as questionable with his ankle injury, it would appear that the signing of former Steelers back Chris Rainey earlier in the week wasn't solely because Indianapolis needed another special teams returner.
