The Colts released their final injury report for week 6 of the NFL season. The team had four false positive COVID-19 tests this morning leading to practice being cancelled this morning. The Colts did however manage to have an afternoon walk through like practice.
Tight end Mo Alie-Cox has been ruled OUT for the Bengals game this Sunday with a knee injury. Alie-Cox is a big target for Philip Rivers and will be missed Sunday but with the return of Trey Burton and the veteran presence of Jack Doyle should make up for the loss of Alie-Cox.
Offensive Tackle Chaz Green has been ruled OUT of the Bengals game this Sunday with a back injury. Green is one of the teams back up tackles and with him being out the team may look to elevate an offensive lineman from the practice squad in place of Green.
Linebacker Darius Leonard is DOUBTFUL for the Bengals game with a groin injury he picked up against the Bears. Leonard hasn’t practiced for two weeks now and is very unlikely to play this Sunday. However with him not being ruled out there is a slim chance he could play.
Defensive end Denico Autry is QUESTIONABLE with an ankle injury he picked up in the Browns game. He missed practice Wednesday and Thursday but managed to practice fully today. Autry is the teams starting defensive end and has been a huge reason why the defensive line has been so dominant so far this season.
Defensive end Justin Houston is QUESTIONABLE with a hip injury. He missed practice today but usually doesn’t practice Friday’s due to veteran rest day. Houston did practice Thursday in a limited capacity and told the media earlier in the week he would be good to go Sunday.
Left tackle Anthony Castonzo is QUESTIONABLE with a rib injury he picked up against the Bears and caused him to miss the Browns game. Castonzo has managed to practice all week, only being limited Wednesday, and should be able to play Sunday unless there is a setback between now and Sunday.
Safety Julian Blackmon (groin), tight end Trey Burton (rest), wide receiver TY Hilton (rest) and quarterback Jacob Eason (not injury related) all appeared on the injury report this week but have no game designation so appear available for Sunday’s game.
