The biggest name to hit the report was wide receiver Ryan Grant, who was limited in practice today after injuring his ankle in Week 6 against the Jets. Fresh off the bye week, Grant seems ready to test the waters in hope of returning to the No. 2 wide receiver spot this Sunday.
Five Colts missed Wednesday’s practice: safety Clayton Geathers (knee), tight end Ryan Hewitt (ankle), safety Mike Mitchell (calf), defensive tackle Hassan Ridgeway (illness) and tight end Erick Swoope (knee).
Geathers played in the Colts’ last game against Oakland, but had missed the previous few weeks after last appearing in New England in Week 5. Swoope missed the game with the Raiders, and still sits in practice after missed all three days leading up to the Week 8 contest.
Corner Nate Hairston returned to practice, albeit limited, after missing the beginning of Monday’s session with what was told to be an ankle issue.
