The Colts will have a number of healthy scratches for Sunday's playoff game against the Broncos, and that's a good thing. For the first time all season, the Colts don't have a player listed as questionable or worse on the injury report for the game. Every single player appearing on this week's injury report is listed as probable and is good to go. Here's the full list of players listed on this week's injury report, and they're all probable:
Jerrell Freeman, ILB (abdomen)
Jonotthan Harrison, C (concussion)
Andrew Jackson, ILB (hamstring)
Henoc Muamba, ILB (back)
A.Q. Shipley, OL (ankle)
Greg Toler, CB (knee)
Erik Walden, OLB (knee)
D'Qwell Jackson, ILB (rest Wednesday)
Reggie Wayne, WR (rest Friday)
In addition, everybody but Wayne (who rested on Friday) was a full participant in practice. In other words, this is a very, very good injury report for the Colts this week! Of course, this doesn't factor in the players who are lost for the season on injured reserve, but of the players on the active 53-man roster, this is about as healthy as could possibly be. The Colts didn't get a first round bye like the Broncos did, but Indy is just as healthy, which is a great thing - because the Colts will have to be at their best on Sunday if they hope to win and advance to the AFC Championship game.
For the Broncos, there are three injuries to note. Defensive end Quanterus Smith has been ruled out with a knee injury, while linebacker Brandon Marshall (the team's leading tackler) is questionable with a foot injury and defensive tackle Mitch Unrein is questionable with a knee injury.
