Right tackle Braden Smith has been ruled OUT for Sunday’s game against the Rams with a foot injury. With Smith unable to play it will likely be either Julian Davenport or Matt Pryor that will replace Smith in the starting line up.
Cornerback Xavier Rhodes has been ruled OUT for Sunday’s game with a calf injury. Rhodes hasn’t managed to practice yet in the regular season and will miss his second game in a row. TJ Carrie will likely replace Rhodes in the starting line up.
Left guard Quenton Nelson (back) and left tackle Eric Fisher (Achilles) are both QUESTIONABLE for Sunday’s game. Both managed to practice fully today after Nelson missed practice all week and Fisher was limited all week. Fisher could be set to make his Colts debut this Sunday. Nelson will be needed massively to help negate Aaron Donald.
Defensive end Kwity Paye is QUESTIONABLE for Sunday’s game. Paye was limited on Wednesday before missing practice on Thursday. Paye was limited again today so has a chance to play Sunday, he will be needed in the pass rush to help slow down the Rams offense.
Safety Khari Willis is QUESTIONABLE for Sunday’s game. Willis missed practice Thursday will an illness but managed to practice fully today. Willis should be good to play Sunday if he’s recovered from his bout of illness.
Safety Julian Blackmon is QUESTIONABLE for Sunday. Blackmon missed practice today with a back injury and could end up missing Sunday’s game against the Rams. If Blackmon can’t play Sunday then the Colts would have to lean on George Odum or even newly signed Andrew Sendai.
Wide receivers Michael Pittman and Parris Campbell are both QUESTIONABLE for Sunday. Campbell and Pittman were both limited in practice today with abdomen and ankle injuries. The Colts wide receiver depth already took a hit when TY Hilton landed on injured reserve so need all the help they can get. Losing Campbell and/or Pittman for Sunday would be a big blow.
