The Indianapolis Colts look to be headed towards a very difficult matchup with the New Orleans Saints this Monday night. The 10-3 Saints are extremely talented on both sides of the ball, and the Colts will be without their best cover corner on one side of the ball, and possibly their largest big-play threat on the other.
For the Colts final injury report of the week, the team rested five players as they typically do on the final day of practice in preparation for a game, but the same names we’ve seen all week have graced the report with some concern from the fan base warranted.
Kenny Moore has already been ruled out for Monday night as he hasn’t practiced this week, and that is going to be a major hit against the Saints offense which touts Michael Thomas as the supreme receiving threat and a major issue for the Colts’ secondary. Additionally, Pierre Desir is questionable to play, and would really be a rough go if he’s unable to play.
However, Desir was a full participant today and at least looks to be progressing given the information available.
Otherwise, T.Y. Hilton is to the Colts’ offense what Thomas is to the Saints’ offense and would be a big help towards the Colts having a competent passing attack against the high-scoring Saints. Hilton is also listed as questionable at this time, but like he’s already stated, if he can play, he will indeed be on the field.
One of many reasons, despite the current state of the Colts’ season, you simply have to love Hilton.
