Mike Adams, Jonathan Newsome among Colts inactives vs. Saints

New, comments

Here are the Colts' inactives for Sunday's game against the Saints.

The Indianapolis Colts (3-3) will take on the New Orleans Saints (2-4) this afternoon at Lucas Oil Stadium, and the Colts will be looking to get their first non-AFC South victory of the season.  It won't be easy, however, as the Saints will be looking to crawl back into the picture with future Hall of Famer Drew Brees under center.

The Colts are pretty healthy entering the game, as the only injuries of note are to two safeties, Mike Adams and Clayton Geathers.  Other than that, however, the inactives are all healthy scratches for the Colts - which is good news, as it shows that, for the most part, the Colts are healthy.

Here's the full list of inactives:

Mike Adams, S (hamstring)

Josh Robinson, RB

Clayton Geathers, S (knee)

Denzelle Good, OL

Todd Herremans, OL

Jonathan Newsome, OLB

Zach Kerr, DL

Of course, as already noted, starting safety Mike Adams is out, as is backup Clayton Geathers.  In place of Adams, Colt Anderson will be making his first start since 2012, and he's a capable guy at filling in for a game.

The most notable healthy scratch is Jonathan Newsome, who has been almost invisible this year after a promising rookie season.  With Bjoern Werner returning from an injury, the Colts are likely wanting to give Werner another shot after seeing Newsome not produce week after week.

Another notable inactive, though not surprising, is Todd Herremans - who was signed this offseason and who was supposed to be the starting left guard.  That lasted just two weeks before the Colts changed things up, and now Herremans is either inactive or a bench guy each game.

Lastly, Josh Robinson is worth noting, as the rookie running back is also inactive.  He has struggled with fumbles so far this year, so with the signing of Ahmad Bradshaw, the Colts can sit Robinson and let him develop rather than putting him out there when he's not healthy.
