Colts are Very Healthy Entering Playoffs

The Colts are very healthy entering the playoffs. Full injury reports for both the Colts and the Chiefs for tomorrow's wild card matchup in Indianapolis.

The Indianapolis Colts are very healthy heading into their first playoff game of the year on Saturday - honestly, they're as healthy as you could possibly be for January football.

The Colts listed just two players as questionable on their injury report and zero as out.  Defensive linemen Fili Moala (knee) and Aubrayo Franklin (knee) are the two listed as questionable, and even that leaves room for them playing if they're healthy enough - especially considering that it's the playoffs.  Everyone else listed on the injury report is probable.  Here is the full report, listed below:

OUT:

QUESTIONABLE:

Fili Moala, DE (knee)

Aubrayo Franklin, NT (knee)

PROBABLE:

Sergio Brown, S (groin)

Darius Butler, CB (quad)

Vontae Davis, CB (groin)

Darrius Heyward-Bey, WR (hamstring)

Ricky Jean Francois, DT (foot)

Robert Mathis, OLB (rest)

Mike McGlynn, OL (elbow)

Cory Redding, DE (shoulder)

Greg Toler, CB (groin)

Bjoern Werner, OLB (ankle)

Now, several fans will be quick to point out that the Colts aren't at full strength, as they have placed 15 players on injured reserve this season, including 7 who started at least one game this year.  But the Colts have adjusted to playing without them, and everybody has players on IR at this time of the year.  There is no doubt that the Colts have been hit harder than most, but that isn't the discussion to be had here.  The game will not be decided by the players who haven't played for a while - it will be decided by those on the field.  We knew there was no chance of getting the guys on IR back for the playoffs, but it would be huge to have the 53-man active roster healthy - which is what the Colts have right now.  Only two players questionable entering the playoffs?  That's phenomenal.

We've talked about how the Colts are playing their best football entering the playoffs, and now we know that the Colts are as healthy as they have been in a while entering the playoffs too.  That sets up nicely for them.

Here is the injury report for the Kansas City Chiefs - who also are pretty healthy overall heading into the playoffs:

OUT:

Eric Fisher, OT (groin/shoulder)

QUESTIONABLE:

Tamba Hali, LB (knee)

PROBABLE:

Branden Albert, OT (knee)

Dwayne Bowe, WR (concussion)

Justin Houston, LB (elbow)

Eric Kush, OL (ankle)

Ron Parker, DB (finger/ankle)
