NFL: Indianapolis Colts at Miami Dolphins Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The big injury news for the Indianapolis Colts today is that wide receiver Donte Moncrief will miss 4-6 weeks with a fractured scapula, but it’s not the only injury update that head coach Chuck Pagano provided in his press conference this morning.

Pagano said that outside linebacker Trent Cole (back) is still being evaluated and that, “he’ll go out today and move around with the trainers and then we’ll go from there.” Right guard Denzelle Good is day-to-day with a back injury, while the Colts should also get some relief in the secondary soon. Cornerback Vontae Davis (ankle) and T.J. Green (knee) are both expected to return to practice today in a limited role, while cornerback Patrick Robinson will participate in a non-contact role wearing a red jersey as he continues to go through the concussion protocol. Pagano said the Colts will hold safety Clayton Geathers (foot) out of practice today but that he should be back and participate fully tomorrow.

So outside of Moncrief, it’s actually pretty good injury news for the Colts. It’s still unclear who will be able to play Sunday and who won’t, but it’s at the very least encouraging. Denzelle Good’s injury isn’t considered to be a long-term thing, while the Colts should get some major boosts to their secondary soon with the return of their top two corners and two of their top three safeties. Whether that’s this Sunday or not, it’s coming soon - and that’s really good news for a Colts secondary that has been overwhelmed by injuries so far this year.
