This week, the Indianapolis Colts only listed a few players on their injury report. So, they will be playing with their healthiest roster of the season against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Colts listed the game time status of their injured individuals Friday. Here are the players who will not play or may not play in Sunday’s contest in London.
- Cornerback Darius Butler – Hamstring
- Wide Receiver Donte Moncrief – Shoulder
- Center / Guard Jonotthan Harrison – Illness
First of all, it is great to see less guys listed as out. The Colts had five guys listed as out Week 2, and four guys did not play in Week 3. This week, only three guys were listed as out.

Darius Butler hurt his hamstring badly in Week 2 so it is not a surprise he is not playing against Jacksonville. Donte Moncrief also hurt his shoulder in Week 2 and is not expected to return for another two to four weeks.
It is also important to note starting outside linebacker Trent Cole is no longer on this list because the Colts’ placed him on injured reserve.
Patrick Robinson is back this week after missing the Colts’ 26-22 win over the San Diego Chargers. The Colts’ secondary could definitely use its No. 2 cornerback against Jaguars’ receivers Allen Hurns and Allen Robinson.
The Dorsett, Good and Reitz injuries will be very interesting to watch up until game time. Dorsett is currently the Colts’ No. 2 receiver because Moncrief is out. He needs to be on the field in order to draw some attention away from Hilton.
At the same time, Good and Rietz have been the Colts’ starting right guard and tackle tandem this season. If both cannot play, the Colts may insert rookies Austin Blythe and Joe Haeg at right guard and right tackle respectively. Both rookies played against the Chargers last week.
Injuries are never great to deal with. However, the Colts should feel fortunate their injury list is relatively thin this week. It is the healthiest they have been all season, and hopefully, they earn a positive result because of it in Sunday.
