Colts Wednesday Injury Report: Six players sit out of practice

New, comments
Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Indianapolis Colts returned to the practice field today to continue preparations for their game this Sunday against the Tennessee Titans, though it wasn't their first practice this week.

The team also held a rare Monday practice this week as they returned from their bye, but they were back on the normal schedule today as they took the field to get some work in.  The good news is that a lot of the injured guys were back today, but there are still a few situations of note that we should be paying attention to.  Here's today's full practice report:

Did Not Practice:

Denzelle Good, T/G (illness)

Kendall Langford, DE (knee)

Patrick Robinson, CB (groin)

Vontae Davis, CB (rest)

Frank Gore, RB (rest)

Robert Mathis, OLB (rest)

Limited Participation:

Mike Adams, S (rest/groin)

Full Participation:

Henry Anderson, DT (knee)

Chris Carter, OLB (hamstring)

Jack Mewhort, T/G (tricep)

Joe Reitz, T/G (concussion)

The good news for the Colts is that Henry Anderson, Chris Carter, Jack Mewhort, and Joe Reitz were all full participants today, signifying that they're healthy and should hopefully be ready to go this Sunday.  It's especially good news when it comes to the two linemen, as it means that Mewhort responded well to practicing Monday (remember, he suffered a setback the last time he practiced before this week) and that Reitz has passed the concussion protocol.  So the Colts should have both of them back this week, meaning that the big question up front is about Denzelle Good.  Since he's out with an illness it's entirely possible that he could return in time for Sunday, but we just don't have enough details to say for sure.  The Colts could have everyone back up front, however, which would be a good thing and would present some decisions: would the team start Joe Reitz or Joe Haeg at right tackle with everyone healthy?  My guess is it would be the latter, but it could go either way.

Kendall Langford was once again out, though Chuck Pagano had said on Monday that the hope was that Langford could return as a limited participant.  So hopefully he'll be able to return to practice in at least a limited role soon, but even if that happens he still might not be back in time for Sunday's game.  It's also unclear how serious Patrick Robinson's injury is and what happened, as the Colts haven't played a game since November 6.  So because of that it's best to assume that it's nothing serious, but it's worth paying attention to.
