Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich had his weekly conference call with the media today.
Frank Reich says the preliminary reports on Khari Willis are positive, Colts want to see it over a couple of days.— Joel A. Erickson (@JoelAErickson) October 28, 2019
Frank Reich told the media that Khari Willis’ injury doesn’t appear to be too serious. Willis had to leave the game against the Broncos Sunday with a foot injury and did not return.
A source indicated Willis got his foot stepped on pretty good.— Joel A. Erickson (@JoelAErickson) October 28, 2019
If Willis’ injury is just a simple having his foot stepped on, then he shouldn’t miss too much time, if any. Willis has been playing lights out this year and is slowly carving out a starting role for himself. Hopefully the injury doesn’t keep him out too long.
Reich on Quincy Wilson and Deon Cain being inactive: Pretty much says it was about putting the best 53 players on the field this week. They believe they have a deep roster and wanted to get some other guys in the mix.— Jim Ayello (@jimayello) October 28, 2019
The Colts made the decision to make both wide receiver Deon Cain and cornerback Quincy Wilson healthy inactives for the game against the Broncos this past Sunday. Deon Cain is a slight surprise as he was very much hyped up all offseason and was supposed to be the receiver to step up in place of the injured Devin Funchess. Cain has not impressed at all this season, and has been very underwhelming. Couple that with the play of Zach Pascal and the return from injury for Parris Campbell and Cain gets made a healthy scratch.
Quincy Wilson being inactive was more of a surprise, especially as starting cornerback Pierre Desir was also inactive. Wilson hasn’t played up to his draft status since entering the league. He has had occasional good performances but has never seemed to remain consistent enough. His name has been mentioned in trade talks through the league and may be the reason for his inactive status on Sunday.
Thoughts:— Stephen Holder (@HolderStephen) October 27, 2019
1) Quincy Wilson is clearly available for trade
2) I am skeptical about Wilson's trade value and, therefore, the wisdom of trading actually him. Not worth it, IMO
3) Tyquan Lewis, again
4) Colts saying Parris Campbell > Deon Cain, at least for today. https://t.co/0YJd3bUh5a
