Browns – Colts Injury Update

With just two days remaining until the Browns and Colts battle it out for their first win of the season, injuries at key positions could play a huge factor in determining the outcome of the game.

The Indianapolis Colts will, once again, be without their future Hall of Fame QB, Peyton Manning. If – and early reports are that it’s a big if – Manning does return before the end of the season, the Colts will be faced with the decision to play, or bench, Manning the rest of the season. Indianapolis’ string of nine consecutive double digit win seasons is in serious jeopardy without Manning. Should the Colts find themselves in the middle of an intense playoff battle around the time Manning returns, it’s likely the Colts would go ahead and play him.

So far, linebackers Gary Brackett (shoulder) and Ernie Simms (knee) have been ruled out of Sunday’s game.

Tight End Brody Eldridge (knee), defensive tackle Eric Foster (knee) and wide receiver Blair White (back) missed Thursday’s practice for the Colts.

One of the team’s top pass-rushers, defensive end Robert Mathis (neck), was limited in practice for the Colts on Thursday, as was linebacker Kavell Conner (foot).

The Colts may finally have wide receiver Anthony Gonzalez (hamstring) on the field on Sunday. Gonzalez, along with defensive end Tyler Brayton (knee), saw full participate in practice on Thursday.

Defensive end Dwight Freeney and wide receiver Reggie Wayne returned to practice on Thursday after a day off on Wednesday.

It appears the Browns will, once again, be without the services of linebacker Titus Brown (ankle), defensive back Eric Hagg (knee) and offensive lineman Tony Pashos (ankle) on Sunday.

Wide receivers Mohammed Massaquoi (hamstring) and Carlton Mitchell (finger) participated fully in practice on Thursday, as did defensive back Dimitri Patterson (ankle) and safeties T.J. Ward and Usama Young who both have potential hamstring issues.
