Moncrief, Melvin both out for Colts

Posted by Chris Brown on December 8, 2017 – 2:54 pm

The Indianapolis Colts will not have their two starting cornerbacks on Sunday.

Already without Pierre Desir, who went on injured reserve earlier this week with a shoulder injury, the Colts also ruled CB Rashaan Melvin out with a hand injury. That leaves the Colts secondary with five cornerbacks who have a combined four games of NFL experience, which includes three rookies. Two of those rookies, Kenny Moore and Quincy Wilson are expected to start.

Meanwhile CB Chris Milton was added to the injury report with a neck injury and is now questionable.

Also out is WR Donte Moncrief with an ankle injury. TE Darrell Daniels is also out with a hamstring injury. Here’s a look at the Colts injury report for Sunday.

Starting RT Denzelle Good is also questionable with an illness.

(WR) Donte Moncrief                                     Ankle                     Out
(CB) Rashaan Melvin                                       Hand                     Out

WR Moncrief not looking good for Colts

Posted by Chris Brown on December 8, 2017 – 9:18 am

The Colts could be without one of their primary passing weapons on Sunday against the Bills. WR Donte Moncrief failed to practice for a second straight day on Thursday due to an ankle injury. Starting CB Rashaan Melvin is not expected to be in the lineup Sunday either as he’s week to week with a hand injury.

Starting RT Denzelle Good did not practice Thursday due to illness.

The good news for the Colts is it looks like starting C Ryan Kelly is ready to return to the lineup from a concussion.

Colts will be down a starting CB

Posted by Chris Brown on September 11, 2015 – 4:04 pm

UBNS imageThe Bills won’t be the only team in Week 1 without one of their starting cornerbacks. Buffalo will be without the services of Leodis McKelvin for the first six weeks of the season while he recovers from an ankle injury that has landed him on Reserve/PUP. Indianapolis however, will be without starting CB Greg Toler.

Toler is dealing with a neck injury and did not practice all week. He’s listed as out along with RB Vick Ballard.

Toler’s backup D’Joun Smith isn’t healthy either. He’s questionable with a knee injury and has been limited in practice all week. If he can’t go the Colts will be down to just four healthy cornerbacks Sunday.

Player Pos Injury Game Status
Vick Ballard RB Hamstring OUT
Greg Toller CB Neck OUT
Robert Mathis LB Achilles QUESTIONABLE
D’Joun Smith CB Knee QUESTIONABLE
Nate Irving LB Knee PROBABLE
D’Qwell Jackson LB Toe PROBABLE
Sheldon Price CB Concussion PROBABLE

The Colts picked up Trent Cole this past offseason to bolster their pass rush, and though he’ll be good to go Sunday fellow pass rusher Robert Mathis is a bit more of a question mark.

Mathis is trying to come back from Achilles surgery at age 34 and has been targeting Week 1 for his return. He participated in practice on a limited basis Wednesday. He was activated off the team’s PUP list on Aug. 25th.

Player Pos Injury Participation Wednesday
Vick Ballard RB Hamstring DNP
Greg Toller CB Neck DNP
Nate Irving LB Knee LP
Robert Mathis LB Achilles LP
Sheldon Price CB Concussion LP
D’Joun Smith CB Knee LP
