On the last practice of the week, nine players sat on the sideline, along with four that were limited participants.
Four Colts — tight end Mo Alie-Cox (calf), wide receiver Dontrelle Inman (shoulder), center Ryan Kelly (knee) and safety Mike Mitchell (calf) — have all been ruled out after missing the entire week of practice. Alie-Cox and Kelly has been out since getting hurt in Week 11, while Inman and Mitchell both played last week against Jacksonville.
Up in the air for Sunday’s contest are wide receiver T.Y. Hilton (shoulder), defensive tackle Margus Hunt (knee), cornerbacks Nate Hairston (ankle) and Chris Milton (hamstring) and defensive lineman Denico Autry (back).
Hilton and Hunt returned to practice as limited participants after missing the previous two days, Hairston was a full participant after missing Thursday’s practice, Milton was limited after missing practice yesterday and Autry hit the injury report for the first time this week.
Along with the DNPs already mentioned, linebacker Anthony Walker and left tackle Anthony Castanzo (knee) and safeties Malik Hooker (hip) and Clayton Geathers (knee) missed Friday’s practice. This was the first time on the report for Castanzo and Walker, while Hooker and Geathers were either limited or out in the previous practices.
After missing Wednesday and Thursday with a back injury/illness, tight end Eric Ebron returned as a full participant on Friday, wide receiver Chester Rogers participated in full after being limited throughout the week and tight end Erik Swoope was limited after missing Thursday’s practice with knee injury.
