Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich had his weekly conference call today with the media and gave several updates.
Frank Reich confirms Chester Rogers will go to IR and his season will end because of the knee injury suffered in Sunday's loss. #Colts— George Bremer (@gmbremer) December 2, 2019
Adam Schefter earlier broke the news about wide receiver Chester Rogers having a potential season ending knee injury this afternoon. Frank Reich confirmed to the media that Rogers will head to injured reserve with a season ending knee injury suffered on Sunday. Rogers is the latest injury blow to the Colts and the already depleted wide receiver group.
Reich said #Colts will make a corresponding move to bring a WR to the active roster. Only have 3 healthy right now.— Jim Ayello (@jimayello) December 2, 2019
Speaking of the wide receiver group, after Rogers injury the group is down to three healthy wide receivers on the active roster. A roster move will be needed and it could either be a promotion from the practice squad or a free agent signing. It opens up an opportunity for some more talent on the team.
Reich says too soon to tell on Parris Campbell (hand) returning this week. Colts are optimistic though.— Kevin Bowen (@KBowen1070) December 2, 2019
The Colts could be getting a helping hand at receiver this week as the team is optimistic that Parris Campbell could return from a fractured hand. The Colts badly need help on offense, and the wide receiver group, in particular, is very depleted at the moment.
Reich felt like Marlon Mack was making good progress last week. Game against Tennessee was never on the table. He'll be monitored this week. #Colts— George Bremer (@gmbremer) December 2, 2019
Could the Colts be getting another helping hand back on offense this week? Reich mentioned that Marlon Mack has been making good progress including last week and even though the Tennessee game was never on the table for a return, he will be monitored this week. If Mack can return he would not only boost the rushing attack (not that it slacked off much), but also to the entire offense as Mack brings so much to the team that cannot be underestimated.
