The following players have had a determination concerning their availability for this weeks match-up of the Dallas Cowboys at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Joseph Addai: INACTIVE – Addai will be inactive once again as he continues to deal with nerve damage in his shoulder.
Gary Brackett: ACTIVE – As tweeted by Colts owner Jim Irsay, Brackett will return to the field today, spelling rookie Pat Angerer.
Austin Collie: INACTIVE – As Caldwell stated earlier in the week, Collie will be held back to ensure his complete return to health.
Brody Eldridge: ACTIVE – Eldridge will return to the lineup after succumbing to a persistent rib injury. Eldridge practiced all week.
Aaron Francisco: ACTIVE – Aaron Francisco will be active after missing some practice and game time last week with injury.
Mike Hart: ACTIVE – Like Brackett, Hart was confirmed to be active this week by Colt’s owner Jim Irsay. Whether he starts is still to be determined.
Kelvin Hayden: INACTIVE – Hayden was injured at the end of the San Diego game, and was out of practice all week, and is out for this week’s game.
Charlie Johnson: ACTIVE – Johnson will play at LT despite a nagging injury that kept him out of practice all week.
Riccardo Mathews: INACTIVE – Mathews will be inactive today as a partial coach’s decision, partial injury.
Jacques McClendon: INACTIVE – Coach’s Decision (with Eldridge returning, an extra blocking TE is not needed)
Daniel Muir: ACTIVE – Muir will be active for this weeks game, helping to bolster DT depth.
Bob Sanders: INACTIVE – Sanders was not cleared medically to play this week, but is nearing a return based upon previous timetables.
Clint Session: INACTIVE – Session will be inactive once again with a dislocated elbow. Kavell Conner and Tyjuan Hagler will likely continue to fill in for him.
Jaimie Thomas: INACTIVE – Thomas will be inactive due to a Coach’s Decision.
Justin Tryon: ACTIVE – With the release of Brandon James, the injury to Kelvin Hayden, the endorsement of Bill Polian, and a full week of practice, Tryon is one of the most obvious returns to the lineup this week.
Reggie Wayne: ACTIVE – Despite what looked like a bad injury against San Diego, Wayne practiced all week, and will be active.
* Lacey will be the starting CB in place of Hayden
* Tryon will be the primary Punt and Kick returner. Tryon will likely be the primary corner to come in on nickle formations.
* Pat Angerer will be moved back to SLB with Kavell Conner starting at WLB.
* OG Mike Pollak will return to the lineup at RG, replacing OT Jeff linkenbach.
