Indianapolis Colts fans knew this wasn’t going to be a great week as soon as it started. Just yesterday the Colts announced that they already had 7 players listed as OUT for their Week 5 travel to Foxboro. The New England Patriots aren’t nearly as banged up, and the Colts have some of their best sidelined in what should be a huge game for them at this juncture of the season.
T.Y. Hilton, Jack Doyle, Kenny Moore and Marlon Mack are pivotal players for the Colts and without them on the field, this one isn’t looking pretty for them. Each team has to have no more than 46 players active for gamedays, and tonight they are lucky enough to not have any additional players sidelined. (See update below)
Anthony Castonzo, Darius Leonard and Ryan Kelly — among others — were listed as questionable, but are good to go. How much of a workload they will get is another story, though.
As for the Patriots, here are their inactives list for tonight’s matchup. The Pats should give their digital media manager a raise after putting together this impressive graphic.
