Colts head coach Chuck Pagano today ruled cornerback Darius Butler (hamstring), right guard Denzelle Good (back), wide receiver Donte Moncrief (shoulder), and cornerback Patrick Robinson (concussion) will miss Sunday’s game against the San Diego Chargers.
Pagano said that everyone else is still being evaluated as to their game status and that the official injury report released later today will update the status of everyone else. He did clarify, however, that guys like T.Y. Hilton and Andrew Luck should play. He’s also hopeful that Henry Anderson will play on Sunday and make his season debut.
The injury situation with Patrick Robinson is disappointing in particular because he was back at practice on Thursday as a full participant and not wearing the red non-contact jersey, but he had a “hiccup” in the final stage of the concussion protocol, per Pagano, which is the reason why he’s out. The other defensive backs, including Vontae Davis, haven’t been ruled out yet though, which is an encouraging sign. They might not play, but at least they’re getting closer.
At right guard, Pagano said that the Colts haven’t made any decisions on who will start in place of Denzelle Good. Jonotthan Harrison and Joe Haeg are the primary options, but it’s unclear who it will be between the two of them. Harrison was the guy who filled in during the game last week, but the Colts could just as easily choose to go with Haeg after a week of preparation. I’d go with Haeg, but we’ll have to wait until Sunday to see what the Colts do.
