The Colts have a tough test this Sunday, with the Baltimore Ravens coming to town, and it's important for the Colts to be as healthy as possible entering that matchup. Compared to the past few weeks, today's injury report is actually filled with more good news than bad, but there still were injured players appearing on the list. Let's take a look at Wednesday's injury report for the Colts:
Ahmad Bradshaw, RB (rest) - did not practice
D'Qwell Jackson, LB (rest) - did not practice
Reggie Wayne, WR (rest) - did not practice
Arthur Jones, DE (ankle) - did not practice
Jack Mewhort, OL (ankle) - did not practice
Colt Anderson, S (groin) - full practice
Andy Studebaker, LB (hamstring) - full practice
Hugh Thornton, OL (ankle) - full practice
Jerrell Freeman, LB (hamstring) - limited practice
A few notes...
- Earlier today, Colts head coach Chuck Pagano ruled Jack Mewhort out for this Sunday's game. Pagano said that Lance Louis will step in at left guard and start for him. Obviously, if Mewhort is already being ruled out the ankle injury (which he suffered and then played through on Sunday) is bad enough. I'm not sure what the exact injury or whether to expect him to be out for extended time, but Pagano has already ruled him out for this Sunday's game against the Ravens.
- The only other player who missed practice today due to an injury was defensive lineman Arthur Jones, who suffered a high ankle sprain in week two. He's still recovering from the injury, and while he's making progress, he's not back yet.
- Colt Anderson, Andy Studebaker, and Hugh Thornton - all of whom missed this past Sunday's game against the Titans - were all full participants in today's practice and should be ready to go on Sunday, which is good news.
- Jerrell Freeman returned to practice today in a limited capacity, which is the first time he's taken part in practice since the Friday before the week one matchup against the Broncos. Freeman has missed the past three games and didn't practice at all those weeks, but today he was back in a limited capacity. That's good news as well.
