Eight Colts missed the opening practice of the week: tight ends Mo Alie-Cox (calf) and Eric Ebron (back/illness), safeties Clayton Geathers (knee) and Mike Mitchell (calf), wide receivers T.Y. Hilton and Dontrelle Inman (shoulder), defensive tackle Margus Hunt (knee) and center Ryan Kelly (knee).
Ebron, Geathers and Hilton all appeared on the injury report last week and didn’t practice Wednesday, but did play in Week 13’s game against Jacksonville. Alie-Cox and Kelly have missed the practice field since the week leading up to the Dolphins game in Week 12, and are on a day-to-day basis, according to the organization.
Corners Nate Hairston (ankle) and Chris Milton (hamstring), safety Malik Hooker (hip), wide receiver Chester Rodgers (groin) and tight end Erik Swoope (knee) were all limited on Wednesday. It seems like another week with a banged up secondary and limited tight end group for the Colts, as they look to regain the steam they had built before the end of their five-game winning streak that ended against Jacksonville.
