One day closer to the Indianapolis Colts season finale, there has been an update to yesterday’s ‘final’ injury report for Week 17.
The Colts have announced that Denico Autry (concussion) has been downgraded to OUT ahead of their matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Along the same lines in terms of injuries, Quenton Nelson has cleared his testing in the league’s concussion protocol.
Autry suffered his following the team’s Week 15 matchup, and Nelson during their Week 16 game against Carolina. This just goes to show us that time frame doesn’t always predict the healing process with these sort of injuries.

G Quenton Nelson has cleared the concussion protocol.
Additionally, the team announced that their best cornerback, Kenny Moore II’s status has been changed from questionable, to doubtful. Moore’s only day being active recently in practice came yesterday which doesn’t make this downgrade much of a surprise.
It would make for a real dumb decision to activate him ahead of a meaningless game and risk further injury throughout the offseason to one of the most important defensive pieces to the team’s future.
