The injury report is looking much better for the Indianapolis Colts right now. Only two players missed practice today, and at this point it’s looking like those are the only two guys in jeopardy of missing this Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans.
Those two players are defensive lineman Kendall Langford and cornerback Patrick Robinson, who have both missed the last two days of practice. Langford’s injury is something that has already caused him to miss some time, and the Colts said a few weeks ago that they were going to shut Langford down for a bit to let him get fully healthy. Robinson’s injury is more vague, as we didn’t know about it until he appeared on the injury report yesterday. But regardless of details, missing two days of practice in a row is never a great sign for a player’s availability for Sunday.
Other than that, though, the injury report is very encouraging for the Colts. Here’s today’s practice report:
Did Not Practice:
Kendall Langford, DE (knee)
Patrick Robinson, CB (groin)
Andrew Luck, QB (right shoulder)
D’Qwell Jackson, ILB (rest)
Mike Adams, S (groin)
Henry Anderson, DT (knee)
Chris Carter, OLB (hamstring)
Denzelle Good, T/G (illness)
Jack Mewhort, T/G (tricep)
Joe Reitz, T/G (concussion)
Vontae Davis, CB (rest Wednesday)
Frank Gore, RB (rest Wednesday)
Robert Mathis, OLB (rest Wednesday)
The two guys who were limited today aren’t in danger of missing Sunday’s game, as D’Qwell Jackson was limited simply for rest purposes and Andrew Luck has been limited all year at times due to his shoulder. So neither are a concern for Sunday’s contest against the Titans, which is good news.
It’s also good news that Denzelle Good returned to practice after missing yesterday with an illness, so that should be a sign that he’s recovered and ready to go. Furthermore, Mike Adams, Henry Anderson, Jack Mewhort, Joe Reitz, and Chris Carter all were back as full participants for the second straight day, so at this point there doesn’t seem to be any reason why they wouldn’t be ready to go this Sunday. All in all, the Colts should be as healthy as they’ve been in quite a while for this weekend’s huge matchup against the Titans, with the only question marks being Kendall Langford and Patrick Robinson.
