Colts without four key defensive players against Broncos

The Colts are going to have to try to stop the Broncos this week with a bunch of backups on defense.

The Colts listed four key defensive players as out for this week’s game, with defensive tackle Henry Anderson, cornerbacks Vontae Davis and Patrick Robinson and safety T.J. Green.

The depleted Colts found themselves involved in a shootout with the Lions last week, and while Trevor Siemian might not have the experience of Matthew Stafford, he has plenty of weapons.

Cornerback Antonio Cromartie is among the questionables for the game with a hamstring strain, but coach Chuck Pagano was hopeful he’d be able to play.

The Colts are going to need all the help they can get, until they can get well.

    Ha ha! Colts don’t have any defensive players! They need Mike Kensil, Roger Goodell, and Mother Nature to play defense.

    The Colts always play the Broncos well. I think the last three times they have matched up the Colts have won – and those matchups were when Peyton was good. It’s going to be close – not a blowout like some people are predicting.

    Broncos fans are hoping Antonio Cromartie can play.

    That Colts D is so soft, the Broncos could put old man Elway back out there and still win.

    One marshmello is little different from another on the softest team in the league.

    Funny the picture with this article looks like Pagano is in handcuffs.

    Trevor Siemian throws for over 300 yards, Broncos dominate 31-13….2-0….so much for the hater/idiots predictions of doom and gloom…

    And the bad get worse.

    I would like to see a team led by Grigson at GM and Rex Ryan as HC.

    Actually, I take that back, that would be horrible.

    I see the delusional Colts fans are out in full force.

    I’m I broncos fan, and this game is concerning to me . Colts always find a way to pull out a win, more concerning then the Panthers game truthfully.

    .
    It’s time for Griggy to panic and pull off one of his stellar personnel moves.

    @bobthebillsfan:

    I’m with you, just for the train wreck value.

    As a Broncos fan, I respect the Colts if only because of Andrew Luck. But this game and this year will not be about the Denver Offense. This Denver D may well be considered one of the all time greats by the end of the season. The Offense will find ways to stay in the game and be drug along to victories by the D.

    Tig, the Colts O-line is overmatched, their D is decimated by injuries and the game is in Denver. How could this possibly concern you more than Carolina?

    All you Patriot potato heads should ask if you can sit at home with Tommy Bundchin. I’ m sure he could use a friendly face after Kraft is has been sucking up to Garropolo.
