This is an abnormal work week for the Colts, as they play on Monday night against the New York Giants. That means that the Colts are on a bit of a different schedule, shifting everything back a day. That makes today (Thursday) like a Wednesday on a normal week. As such, the first injury report of the week for the Colts was released today. Here's the full report:
Arthur Jones, DT (ankle) - did not practice
Josh McNary, LB (ankle) - did not practice
Reggie Wayne, WR (elbow/rest) - did not practice
Erik Walden, LB (quad) - did not practice
D'Qwell Jackson, LB (toe) - did not practice
Ahmad Bradshaw, RB (rest) - did not practice
Vontae Davis, CB (knee) - full practice
A few notes...
- We had an update earlier today about the fact that Chuck Pagano said that Vontae Davis is 100% and is "ready to go." He was a full participant today, so obviously there's a lot of good news there.
- Interestingly, Trent Richardson isn't on the injury report. He didn't practice last week with a hamstring injury and then he didn't play on Sunday for the same reason. That's a very good sign for him as well, as he seems ready to go as well due to the fact he's not even on the injury report this week.
- RTV6's Mike Chappell reported that Arthur Jones, who missed five games with an ankle injury before returning last week, was in a protective boot today, and we know from the injury report that he didn't practice today with an ankle injury. He definitely didn't look like he was completely healthy when playing on Sunday and I just hope he didn't reinjure his ankle or anything like that. Right now it could just be a precaution and that's what we have to hope it is, but it's not a great sign that he's in a boot and missed practice.
- Pagano said that Reggie Wayne missed practice today for rest reasons and that he could have gone today. He wouldn't, however, commit to whether or not Wayne will play on Monday night, saying that he'll need to see how the next couple of days go.
- I'd be pretty surprised if Erik Walden plays on Monday. Pagano described him as week-to-week earlier this week and he confirmed today that is still the case. That normally means the player will miss some time, and I expect that to be the case with Walden.
