Yesterday we saw that the Indianapolis Colts had five players sit out practice, though only three of them were injury related. Additionally, Tyquan Lewis, Parris Campbell, and Kenny Moore all returned to the field in a limited role, and Malik Hooker was a full participant which was great news to Colts fans.
In another note on Lewis, Jim Ayello of the Indy Star, stated that Lewis’s ankle is making definite improvements, and he feels that he could play on Sunday against the Broncos.
Chatted with Tyquan Lewis today. Said his ankle is feeling much better and that he thinks he could be ready to play Sunday. Doesn't mean he'll be active, but physically he'd be ready to go.— Jim Ayello (@jimayello) October 24, 2019
Lewis is a key piece who has been missing significant time as the Colts’ front-four has sputtered in creating pressure outside of a pretty good outing last week against the Houston Texans. A return for Lewis would bring a much-needed boost to the defense getting more interior pressure, as well as his ability to play against the run.
Well, more good news has been released by the Colts today as Carl Davis (hamstring) was one of only two non-participants in today’s practice, however, some not-so-good news is that the other was Jabaal Sheard (foot) after being a full participant yesterday.
Pierre Desir was upgraded to limited today after being out yesterday, and Clayton Geathers was also upgraded to a full participant after being limited Wednesday. Parris Campbell, Tyquan Lewis, and Kenny Moore were limited again today with hopes of them being full participants tomorrow as the team prepares for the Broncos Sunday.
The Colts largely look to be getting healthy at the moment, and depending on how quickly Sheard’s foot issues subside, they could be about as healthy as they’ve been in several weeks.
