Starting center Ryan Kelly (neck) was ruled out for Sunday’s contest after missing the entire week of practice. Kelly returned to the field in Week 15 after missing the previous three games, but left after hurting his next last Sunday against the Giants. Joining Kelly on the sidelines is wide receiver Daurice Fountain (ankle), who missed Thursday and Friday’s practices after being limited on Wednesday.
Tight end Eric Ebron (concussion/knee) was a full participant in Friday’s practice but was listed as questionable for Sunday as he still needs to be cleared by his neurologist to fully complete the concussion protocol. Ebron has seven starts this season.
Along with Ebron, safety Clayton Geathers (knee), wide receivers T.Y. Hilton (ankle), Dontrelle Inman (shoulder) and Zach Pascal (knee), defensive end Jabaal Sheard (teeth/knee) and cornerback Nate Hairston (hip) were all ruled as questionable for IND vs. TEN. Geathers and Hilton both missed the entire week of practice, Inman — like Ebron — was a full participant in Friday’s practice and Pascal, Sheard and Hairston all missed the final practice.
Three other Colts — left tackle Anthony Castanzo (ankle), wide receiver Ryan Grant (not injury related) and linebacker Darius Leonard (ankle) — were given Friday’s practice off. Safety Malik Hooker (hip) was limited for the third day in a row, and guard Mark Glowinksi was a full participant for the third day in a row despite being listed on the injury report with an ankle ailment. After not practicing on Thursday, corner Chris Milton (foot) practiced in full on Friday.
Since missing Wednesday’s practice and being limited on Thursday, linebacker Matthew Adams (groin), tight end Ryan Hewitt (foot) and corner Quincy Wilson (calf) were all full participants on Friday.
