Colts inactives vs. Chiefs: Donte Moncrief returns to the lineup

NFL: Preaseason-Baltimore Ravens at Indianapolis Colts Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports

The Indianapolis Colts have announced their inactives for today’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs, though there aren’t really any surprises with the list.

That’s because six of the seven inactives were already known on Friday, and the other inactive is Le’Raven Clark - who has now only been active in three of eight games this year.

Here’s the full list of inactives for the Colts today:

Le’Raven Clark, OL

Jack Mewhort, G (tricep)

Chester Rogers, WR (foot and hamstring)

Dwayne Allen, TE (ankle)

Kendall Langford, DL (knee)

Curt Maggitt, OLB (ankle)

Henry Anderson, DL (knee)

The biggest news is that Donte Moncrief is active, which will mark his first game since suffering a fractured scapula in the team’s week two game against the Broncos. The return of Moncrief, as well as the return of Phillip Dorsett (who missed last week’s game), should be a significant boost to the Colts’ offense. The downside is that they’ll be without tight end Dwayne Allen and number four receiver Chester Rogers, but the combination of T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief, Phillip Dorsett, and Jack Doyle is a very good group in the passing game.

One thing to note about the Chiefs’ inactives is that linebacker Sio Moore is active today, which is the first time he’s active since joining the team. As Colts fans know, Moore was with the Colts earlier this year and started the first several games, but after a promising week one game he was terrible in the next few before he was cut after week four. As Chiefs.com’s BJ Kissel pointed out, however, Moore is still fourth on the Colts in tackles this year with 30 despite having been cut after week four (it’s now week eight). So yeah, the linebacker position hasn’t been good for the Colts, and they’ll see Sio Moore on the other sideline today.
