The Colts have declared fullback Stanley Havili (knee), defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois (foot), right guard Jeff Linkenbach (quad), center Samson Satele (elbow) and cornerback Greg Toler (groin) out of Sunday’s game against Houston.

Jean Francois, Linkenbach and Toler all missed the Week 14 loss at Cincinnati, while Havili and Satele started the game for the Colts.

According to ESPN.com and other media outlets, guard Mike McGlynn will start for Satele at center, with Joe Reitz and Hugh Thornton starting at guard.

Thornton (neck) is probable, as are outside linebacker Robert Mathis and nose tackle Aubrayo Franklin, who rested on Wednesday but have practiced fully since.

Wide receiver LaVon Brazill (foot) is questionable. He has not practiced all week.

The Colts have clinched the AFC South. They currently hold the No. 4 seed in the conference.
