The Indianapolis Colts today released their Thursday injury report for week 15 of the NFL season.

Tight end Mo Alie-Cox continues to miss practice with a knee injury. Alie-Cox missed yesterday’s too with the knee injury. Alie-Cox had been dealing with knee injuries earlier in the season and it appears they have returned. If Alie-Cox wants any chance of playing Sunday then he needs to practice tomorrow or he will miss the game.

Defensive lineman Denico Autry (rest), tight end Trey Burton (knee), offensive tackle Anthony Castonzo (knee), defensive end Justin Houston (rest) and Philip Rivers (toe) all returned to practice after missing time yesterday. All practiced fully today and look to have a good chance of playing Sunday.

Linebacker Darius Leonard (back), cornerback Xaiver Rhodes (knee), punter Rigoberto Sanchez (illness) and defensive end Kemoko Turay all continued practicing fully today. With all practicing today and yesterday it highly increases their chances of playing Sunday.

Tight end Jack Doyle missed practice today with a scheduled rest day. Doyle has been getting rest days each week in practice to help with maintenance and to help try reduce injuries. Doyle will most likely return to practice tomorrow and play Sunday too.

Defensive tackle DeForest Buckner was limited today with an ankle injury. Buckner is one of the Colts best defenders and has helped the Colts defense take the next step from being a solid defense last year to the top 10 defense they are this year. Buckner’s status will be one to monitor this week as the Colts can’t afford to lose him for Sunday.
