The Indianapolis Colts released their Week 4 injury report ahead of today’s game against the Miami Dolphins.
Among those inactive are quarterback Jacob Eason, defensive end Kwity Paye, tackle Braden Smith, safety Khari Willis, defensive end Antwaun Woods and cornerback Rock Ya-Sin.
According to Zak Keefer, a writer for The Athletic, Eason is a healthy scratch, and both Carson Wentz and Brett Hundley are the only two active quarterbacks for today’s game.
Colts inactives today include QB Jacob Eason. That’s a healthy scratch.— Zak Keefer (@zkeefer) October 3, 2021
Just two QBs active: Carson Wentz and Brett Hundley.
In place of Paye, we’ll likely see a fair amount of snaps from Tyquan Lewis and Kemoko Turay. Both Matt Pryor and Julie’n Davenport have played in place of Smith throughout the last two weeks, but Davenport could get the majority of snaps at right tackle.
Veteran safety Andrew Sendejo will replace Willis and second-year corner Isaiah Rodgers will replace Ya-Sin. Additionally, guard Quenton Nelson will miss the next three games after being placed on IR just a few days ago with a high ankle sprain.
Look for veteran guard Chris Reed, who filled in for Nelson last Sunday, to take the Pro Bowl guards place over the next three games.
Starting 0-3 isn’t what the Colts had in mind. The teams’ playoff aspirations are already hanging by a thread, and a loss to the Jacoby Brissett-led Dolphins Sunday would likely be the nail in the coffin for any chance at playing come January.
