Thursday’s Injury Report Includes Two New Names: Eric Foster and Brody Eldridge

The Colts once again updated their injury report today, with some changes from yesterday's report.  Out: Peyton Manning (neck), Gary Brackett (shoulder), and Ernie Sims (knee) DNP (did not practice): Brody Eldridge (knee), Eric Foster (knee), and Blair White (back) LP (limited practice): Kavell Conner (foot), Robert Mathis (neck) FP (full practice): Tyler Brayton (knee), Dwight Freeney (full), Anthony Gonzalez (hamstring), and Reggie Wayne (rest).

It's encouraging to see Brayton, Conner, and Mathis show improvement, being able to practice. Also, Gonzo has had full participation all week and is likely to play on Sunday.

Eldridge and Foster are new for the report, so the Colts are either being extra cautious, or the injuries happened during practice. The Colts are going to need both for depth on the OL and DL.
