Indianapolis Colts offensive guard Jack Mewhort may have a chance of playing today against the Detroit Lions. Mewhort injured his knee in the team’s third exhibition game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Indianapolis Colts received some good news today, as left guard Jack Mewhort is ‘hopeful’ to play in the team’s first regular season game against the Detroit Lions.
Mewhort, a key cog in the Colts’ offensive line, was originally believed to have torn his ACL against the Eagles — which would almost surely end his 2016 season before it had even started.
However, Mewhort was then diagnosed with a mild knee injury and only expected to miss around two-to-four weeks.
If Mewhort does play against Detroit, then that is a massive gain for a Colts team that could use any help that they can get on the offensive line.
If Mewhort does play, then the starting offensive line will look something like:
It is highly likely that Mewhort’s status will be a game-time decision prior to kickoff against the Lions at 4:25 p.m. ET.
