Happy New Year, Colts fans! The Colts will look to get 2015 started off right with a victory on Sunday over the Cincinnati Bengals in the Wild Card round of the playoffs, but already the first day of the new year has brought relatively good information: there were only two players who didn't practice today for the Colts, and everyone else was a full participant. That's about as good as it gets in January. Let's take a look at the full injury report:
Did Not Practice:
Hugh Thornton, OL (shoulder)
A.Q. Shipley, OL (ankle)
Erik Walden, OLB (knee)
Reggie Wayne, WR (groin)
Bjoern Werner, OLB (shoulder)
Josh Cribbs, RS (rest Wednesday)
Dwayne Allen, TE (knee)
Jerrell Freeman, LB (hamstring)
Joe Reitz, OL (ankle)
A few notes:
- For the second straight day, neither A.Q. Shipley nor Hugh Thornton practiced. Shipley is "day-to-day" and Thornton is "week-to-week," though all signs currently point to neither being available for the Colts this Sunday.
- The rest of the injury report is encouraging, however. Yesterday, Erik Walden, Reggie Wayne, and Bjoern Werner were all limited, but today all three were full participants - which is a good sign.
- Yesterday, Gosder Cherilus was limited in practice, but later that evening the Colts placed him on injured reserve - ending his season.
