Home » Indianapolis Colts injury report – NFL Week 12

The Indianapolis Colts will be looking for a home win against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 12. The two teams will face one another on Monday night to conclude the week. The Colts are 4-6-1 this season and they will be approaching the game against Pittsburgh as a “must win” game. Here’s a look at what the Colts reported on their injury report following practice on Saturday.

Colts have defensive injuries

The Colts listed 11 names on their injury report for the week. Seven of the players that were on the report were full participants in practice on Saturday. That included tight-end Jelani Woods, a player that Indianapolis uses in the red zone at times. The Colts’ question marks are mainly on defense as of late Sunday afternoon.

Deforest Buckner, the team’s starting defensive tackle, is questionable for the game. His injury on the report has to do with his ribs, however, the report also states that he has an illness. If there is reason to be optimistic about Buckner playing, then it’s that he was listed as a full participant in Saturday’s practice.

Kwity Paye, the team’s defensive end, is already out for the game. He is on the report with an ankle injury and did not practice all week. Yannick Ngakoue and Zaire Franklin are both defensive players that are questionable as of late Sunday afternoon.

Colts are small favorites in the game

The Colts are -2.5 with bet365 for the game. The Steelers have not actually won on the road since back in Week 1 when they beat the Cincinnati Bengals in overtime. But with TJ Watt, Minkah Fitzpatrick, and Alex Highsmith all active, the Steelers should be difficult defensively. The game does look like it could be a tight one.
