The Indianapolis Colts know their seven inactives for Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans, as they ruled seven players out today: tight end Dwayne Allen (ankle), defensive lineman Henry Anderson (knee), wide receiver Phillip Dorsett (foot and hamstring), defensive lineman Zach Kerr (ankle), outside linebacker Curt Maggitt (ankle), guard Jack Mewhort (tricep), and wide receiver Donte Moncrief (shoulder).
In addition, cornerback Darius Butler (calf and hamstring), safety T.J. Green (knee), center Jonotthan Harrison (illness), and wide receiver T.Y. Hilton (hip) are all questionable. But with how the Colts’ injury situation is this week, all four of them will likely be active regardless of whether they will play or not, as the Colts already have their gameday inactives taken up by the guys who won’t play.
The biggest news in today’s injury report is that Jack Mewhort will miss Sunday’s game with a tricep injury that caused him to miss practice all this week. Pagano said this week that he thought Mewhort is week-to-week but that he was working with the trainers this week and is close, so he should be ready to go next week. On Sunday though, it sounds like Joe Haeg will start at left guard (which will be the third position he’ll have made a start at in seven games) and Joe Reitz back at right tackle.
Most of the other injuries are ones we knew about already, as Allen, Anderson, Kerr, Maggitt, and Moncrief are all week-to-week. And then Dorsett was day-to-day with a hamstring injury, though he didn’t practice at all this week. So the Colts will have T.Y. Hilton (who, though questionable, should play), Chester Rogers, Devin Street, and Tevaun Smith at wide receiver, while at tight end they’ll have Jack Doyle, Erik Swoope, and Chase Coffman. So Andrew Luck won’t have the best group of weapons, and he’ll also be without his starting left guard.
