NFL: Indianapolis Colts at Kansas City Chiefs Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The Indianapolis Colts are headed for another big matchup this week in Tampa Bay to face off against the Buccaneers. This will be no small task, and the Colts need to be as healthy as they possibly can be in order to have more than a punchers chance at a road win.

Today, like most weeks, there was some good and bad news out of practice. The good — the very good actually — is that Marlon Mack was back as a full participant today, and looks to have a real chance at being back in the lineup for the Colts. The Colts’ running game could really use him in the backfield after Week 13’s performance and the uncertainty surrounding Jonathan Williams’ benching.

Clayton Geathers was also a full participant, and Parris Campbell as well as Mo Alie-Cox were both full-go for a second consecutive day.

Of course the bad comes that comes with that is more than a little concerning. T.Y. Hilton, Kenny Moore II, and Malik Hooker were all non-participants today which is bad for the receiving corps as well as the secondary — especially against an aggressive Buccaneers’ team on both sides of the ball. Jameis Winston has been very mistake prone as always, but the Colts don’t need him throwing against a less-than-optimal Colts secondary either.

More bad news comes with Rock Ya-Sin being limited today after not being on the report at all yesterday, and some would say the next bit of news is good news, as Adam Vinatieri did not practice. There are obvious questions about Vinny’s future this season, but the Colts claimed a kicker for a reason, and it appears that’s who we’ll see this Sunday.

Let’s just hope we don’t get the same result with a new leg in the house.
