Which Indianapolis Colts players are dealing with injury this week?

Following Indianapolis Colts practice on Friday, head coach Chuck Pagano spoke to the media and ruled out five players officially for this week’s opening game against the Los Angeles Rams.

There really aren’t any surprises here. We have already known for at least a week that Andrew Luck (shoulder), Ryan Kelly (foot) and Vontae Davis (groin) would be out.

Chester Rogers (hamstring) has been out several weeks, and newcomer Ian Silberman (Lumbar) has not practiced this week.

Scott Tolzien will fill in for Luck at quarterback. Kamar Aiken and Quan Bray will take Rogers’ snaps at wide receiver. Rookie undrafted free agent Deyshawn Bond will fill in for Kelly at center. Silberman hasn’t really established a spot with the team yet after being picked up just this week, so him being gone does not affect much. Rashaan Melvin will be the Colts’ CB1 in Davis’ absence. Pagano said that it will be a committee (Quincy Wilson, Nate Hairston, Chris Milton) opposite of Melvin.

Outside of Frank Gore, who earned a veteran rest day on Thursday, those other five players were the only ones on the team’s injury report this week.

On the other side of the rope is the Rams’ injury report, which looks... different.
