According to Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich, his team is monitoring standout slot cornerback Kenny Moore’s status, who was forced to leave Thursday night’s win with a rib injury and underwent an MRI:

If Moore is inactive for the Colts’ Week 11 matchup, that could be a big blow to the Colts secondary, as 2x NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers come to town—along with 3x Pro Bowl wideout Davante Adams, who’s having a monster year and could see some slot reps as he moves around formations.
That being said, backup cornerback T.J. Carrie filled in admirably last night in his absence.
Meanwhile, starting tight end Jack Doyle, who was inactive for Thursday night’s game, unsurprisingly remains in the league’s concussion protocol. With the Colts having a long week until their next game, there’s no need to rush Doyle through that process.
Another update though was on Colts 2nd-year wide receiver Parris Campbell, who’s a young player that so far not many updates have been made on his initial MCL injury which he suffered in Week 2 of this year’s regular season and was declared ‘out indefinitely’.
Reich said it’s ‘too early to tell’ on whether Campbell can actually return at some point during the remainder of the 2020 regular season:

"At this point, I think it’s too early to tell that. I know he’s working really hard, so if there is a chance, I know that Parris is the kind of guy that will give himself that kind of chance."
However, given the lack of updates and that Reich wasn’t exactly encouraged, reading the tea leaves, it doesn’t seem real promising that Campbell actually returns for the Colts during the 2020 campaign—especially with the team’s remaining weeks getting shorter. Just a guess.
Given the initial severity of his injury, that’s understandable too.
