The Colts’ longer than usual injury report is a concern for coach Chuck Pagano, but Pagano told reporters Friday that linebacker D’Qwell Jackson’s track record says he will be in the starting lineup Sunday vs. the Jaguars.
Jackson, the Colts’ leading tackler, has been limited this week by a quad injury, missed practice Friday and will be listed as questionable. But that’s just a listing.
“He’s gonna play,” Pagano said.
The Colts will list outside linebacker Erik Walden as doubtful. Walden, who’s second on the team with 3.0 sacks, hasn’t missed a game since joining the Colts in 2013.
Cornerback Greg Toler was back at practice Friday after missing Thursday’s practice due to a knee injury. He’ll also be listed as questionable.
The Colts will again be without Andrew Luck, Anthony Castonzo and Jerrell Freeman. After leaving last week’s game and expressing some doubt about his status, quarterback Matt Hasselbeck practiced as usual all week.
