T.Y. Hilton among seven Colts ruled out for Thursday

Colts head coach Frank Reich said last Sunday that the chances of wide receiver T.Y. Hilton being able to play against the Patriots on Thursday night didn’t look good and nothing changed over the last few days.

Hilton hurt his chest and hamstring in the loss to the Texans and was officially ruled out when the Colts released their final injury report on Wednesday afternoon. Tight end Jack Doyle (hip) has also been ruled out, so Andrew Luck is going to be missing a pair of favored targets.

He may have left tackle Anthony Castonzo blocking for him, though. Castonzo has missed all four games with a hamstring injury, but drew a questionable tag for Thursday night. That’s the same designation that kicker Adam Vinatieri (groin), center Ryan Kelly (hand) and linebacker Darius Leonard (ankle) drew and the Colts will be really shorthanded if they can’t go.

That’s because five other players joined Hilton and Doyle in being ruled out. Cornerback Kenny Moore (concussion), running back Marlon Mack (hamsting), defensive lineman Hassan Ridgeway (calf) and cornerback Quincy Wilson (concussion) are all injured while tackle Denzelle Good won’t play two days after the death of his brother.

  1. Maybe they should just stay home & forfeit. They can claim inclement weather grounded their plane, maybe make something up about the tires deflating.

    Sure beats getting slaughtered again.

  2. “Colts will sack the two yard wonder 4 times”

    Colts are going to sack Andrew Luck? He can barely hold a ball now much less throw it.

    Outstanding! And just in the nick of time too.

    Nothing is surer than a pet “reverse lock”

    The popcorn will taste a little better now.

  4. The coming of Ole Noodle Arm 2.0. How many more weeks does that bad wing hold up?? Overrated and overpaid!!!

  5. I’m not a betting man…

    But sell your car, house, and cash out your 401K…and bet everything you have on Patriots -10.

    Deflategate was started by Colts. Brady hates them more than anyone.

    And Brady is 3 TD’s away from getting 500.

    Barring injury, Brady will put up 21 points in the air. That doesn’t count field goals and running TD’s by James White and red-hot Sony Michel.

    Belichick and Brady -10 on a short week for a rookie head coach on the other side…

    I haven’t touched on the fact Edelman is back and Brady went to Gordon on 3rd down in the 1st quarter last weekend.

    This could be the bet of the year…

  6. I think nobody’s talking about the most critical injury of all… Luck. He is not right, and I think it will show tonight. 🙂

    I don’t think the Patriots hate the Colts, at least not nearly as much as the Ravens. It was the Ravens that called the league and the Colts to set up a sting, and they started that because wussy Harbaugh couldn’t take a joke from Brady about reading the rulebook.
