Colts Wednesday Injury Report: Hooker and Hunt return to practice, Ryan Kelly out

NFL: Denver Broncos at Indianapolis Colts Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Indianapolis Colts have released their injury report for Wednesday, their first of the week as they prepare to host the Miami Dolphins.

The biggest note from Wednesday’s practice was the return of defensive lineman Margus Hunt (knee) and safety Malik Hooker (hip). Hunt was a full participant, while Hooker was still limited.

Hooker missed practice all last week and, despite initially being announced as questionable last Friday, was ruled out on Saturday. Hunt hurt his knee against the Titans on Sunday and did not return, but came back fully fledged today.

While it was already doubtful that starting center Ryan Kelly would be ready to go this weekend, he was officially ruled out with a knee injury. After being listed with a knee injury last Friday, Kelly played in the Colts’ contest against Tennessee, but hurt his knee as he got tangled in a pile during the fourth quarter. Third-year vet Evan Boehm is expected to slide in the middle of the line in Kelly’s absence, a Colt that’s appeared in five games this season for Indy playing center and guard at times.

Tight end Erik Swoope missed all last week with a knee injury and was still sidelined on Wednesday. Joining Swoope and Kelly on the sidelines were safety Clayton Geathers (knee), tight end Ryan Hewitt (ankle) and defensive tackle Al Woods (illness).

Cornerback Kenny Moore was listed with a back injury but was still a full participant, while corner Nate Hairston was limited with an ankle problem.
