The Indianapolis Colts are long past the point in the season where they needed to be playing their best football, but as they enter Week 14 of the season, they’re currently still alive for a playoff berth. This week the Colts travel to face off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers — a team that could completely stink up the place, or run the Colts out of the stadium just the same.
The Colts were without T.Y. Hilton last week again, Chester Rogers has been placed on IR, and without the return of Devin Funchess, the Colts will have to continue to use an inexperienced receiving corps in attempt to get some points on the board.
Heading into their Week 14 game, the Colts are hoping to have more bodies back for the conclusion of the season, and it appears that at least a couple very well could be.
Some very good news came out of today’s practice in that Marlon Mack was back in action, though he was limited, and Parris Campbell was a full participant today. There was also — naturally — some bad news in seeing that T.Y. Hilton and Kenny Moore we’re both non-participants.
Both Hilton and Moore are vital pieces to their respective sides of the ball, and the Colts really can’t afford to lose either for extended periods of time should the team hold hopes of making the postseason.
Clayton Geathers, Adam Vinatieri, and Malik Hooker were all three limited today, and Mo Alie-Cox was full-go today.
With Vinny being limited today, there was some very interesting news to follow the injury report, especially if you feel like you’ve seen enough of the Colts kicking game in its current form.
