Much of the injuries this week for the Indianapolis Colts were well known to be giving the team a rough go in Arrowhead. Marlon Mack was iffy, T.Y. Hilton was as well, but several more were already ruled out.
Both Mack and Hilton will go tonight and though Hilton is a true playmaker for the offense, Mack and the Colts running game are essential for any success.
Mack can’t just be on the field, he’s got to be healthy enough to be himself and get the Colts chunk yardage on the ground.
Darius Leonard, Tyquan Lewis and Malik Hooker have now missed multiple games, but now Parris Campbell leaves a bit of a void with the receiving corps and Clayton Geathers will sit as well.
The safety group may be a hodgepodge this evening and the team is reportedly thinking of using Quincy Wilson back there to assist while the Colts starters are out.
Still, maybe the largest collective issue is that the defense will be missing players at all three levels and must mesh better than they did in Week 4.
The Colts need all of their healthy bodies to show up and have their best performance of the season to give the Colts a chance against the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Chiefs also have a couple notable players sitting tonight for Sunday night football as well.
