Colts’ fans got some good news earlier this afternoon as they learned that Carl Davis was the lone player ruled out at this time.
Yesterday the team’s injury report showed some improvements with Pierre Desir, T.Y. Hilton, Rolan Milligan, Grover Stewart, and Clayton Geathers all being upgraded from Wednesday’s report, while Tyquan Lewis, Parris Campbell, Kenny Moore, and Malik Hooker all participating for a second consecutive day and looking to be moving in the right direction for Sunday’s game.
Hooker being a full participant for a second straight day was very encouraging, and simply getting this team healthier than it’s been in several weeks should also have fans excited to see what the defense in particular can do against a struggling Denver offense now without its best receiver.
Today’s report, however, has brought about another surprise. Yesterday’s — Jabaal Sheard being a non-participant — practiced fully today, but Jack Doyle was limited and is now listed as questionable due to a groin injury. Desir, Campbell, and Kenny Moore failed to fully participate this week and are also listed as questionable, and though Lewis was full-go today, he is also listed as questionable for Sunday’s game.
Several Colts had rest days today, but overall the team looks to be pretty healthy and it would seem that they will field the most complete defense they’ve run out onto the field in weeks. The Colts badly need a definitive win as all six of their games have been one score contests. Week 8 could very well be that game to catapult the Colts into the second half of their season.
