The Indianapolis Colts are set to host the Miami Dolphins in their Week 12 matchup against two 5-5 teams as they both find themselves in the thick of the AFC Wild Card race. The Colts have already announced that four players (Mo Alie-Cox, Ryan Hewitt, Erik Swoope and Ryan Kelly) have been listed as OUT for this one, but their are some others who could have been seen as questionable to play as well.
With Hewitt, Swoope and Alie-Cox being sidelined this week, only Eric Ebron and Jack Doyle will be available at the tight end position which could effect the play-calling from Frank Reich in order to give those two a break if the Colts are able to sustain some lengthy drives against the Miami defense.
Malik Hooker and Clayton Geathers, both, missed practice at least once this week, but both will be active today nevertheless. Nate Hairston, who has also missed some time recently, will also return to the lineup against Miami. Additional to the four previously announced players for the Colts, Hassan Ridgeway, Denzelle Good and Jonathan Williams will be inactive today.
As for the Dolphins, they only had WR Jakeem Grant listed as OUT pregame, but Danny Amendola, Davon Godchaux, Ja’Wuan James, Ted Larson and T.J. McDonald were all listed as QUESTIONABLE coming into this matchup. In the end, only Grant from this group will be inactive today.
Here are the Dolphins inactives:
