Colts Thursday Injury Report: Hooker returns as limited participant, Houston DNP with calf injury

New, comments
NFL: Indianapolis Colts at Kansas City Chiefs Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

In Wednesday’s injury report, we saw the defense, and most notably the Indianapolis Colts’ secondary, dominating the list of those who did not participate. Pierre Desir, Kenny Moore, and Malik Hooker were all Wednesday casualties, if you will, with a few others from the defense limited as well.

Parris Campbell was the only offensive player who failed to make it on the field which is good for the Colts heading into their Week 7 matchup with the Houston Texans. Right now, with the Colts adding a couple pieces up front in the last week or so, it may actually be a sign that Tyquan Lewis may be on the shelf a bit longer.

That can’t be any sort of good for the Colts’ ability to get pressure from the interior or stopping the run.

Well, today there was some additional good and bad news alike. Malik Hooker was limited today which is a very good sign for the Colts secondary, but Justin Houston found his way on to the injury report after apparently injuring his calf, and Eric Ebron was out with illness.

Campbell, Desir, Moore, and Lewis were all non-participants on the day yet again. Additional positive news came from getting Clayton Geathers and Zaire Franklin back as full participants after being limited on Wednesday as well.

The Colts really need to continue getting healthier as the week progresses for the stretch run for the season. Otherwise this early bye week could come back to being fairly pointless in the end.

Additionally, the Colts really can’t afford for Houston’s calf issue to linger as they’ve already taken a major blow to their pass rush with Turay being placed on IR.
