The Indianapolis Colts are preparing for their Week 3 matchup against the Atlanta Falcons and have had a couple of significant injuries, but are also getting a couple of guys back who were previously up in the air earlier in the week.
Earlier in the day Frank Reich and the Colts announced that they would be without linebacker Darius Leonard and that Jabaal Sheard will have to wait a little bit longer to make his 2019 debut.
Leonard has been out this week of practice with concussion symptoms and going through the league’s protocal in order to return. Sheard finally came back to practice, but the team doesn’t feel he’s ready quite yet after being limited throughout the week. Sheard has yet to be a full participant in practice during the season.
Additionally, Marlon Mack did not participate Wednesday and Thursday, but was expected to play Sunday. For now, the team has Mack as questionable.
Pierre Desir, and T.Y. Hilton were limited Wednesday and Thursday, but Kemoko Turay, who was out in Week 2, and Jonathan Williams were both full participants Thursday and today which is a very good sign for the Colts.
Turay does not hold a designation and looks to be good to go. Desir was a full participant today.
On the other hand, Williams and Hilton are also listed as questionable at the moment. New to the report was Zach Pascal who has apparently suffered a shoulder injury, but doesn’t hold a designation either.
The Colts, despite being without two of their better players in Week 3, are and have been largely healthy up to this point which is a very nice change of pace for the organization. The team will need every player they dress to take down a very talented, yet disappointing to this point, Falcons team in order to get themselves above .500 this early in the season.
