Great news: It appears that Brown will go, and likely split carries with Mike Hart. Joining him on the offensive side of the ball for the first time since Game 1 is Anthony Gonzalez, who practiced all week and appears to be back from his high ankle sprain. On defense, it appears that the Colts will have their defensive captain back at MLB; Gary Brackett practiced all week, having returned from a groin injury that kept him out of the Redskins game.
Concerns: Powers hasn’t practiced all week, and Phil B. shed a little light on the situation on Friday. On Saturday, the news wasn’t much better, as his comments in a Phil Richards story implies he wouldn’t be ready tomorrow, but is still hoping to feel good enough to go in the 11th hour. The Colts would be woefully thin at corner if Powers couldn’t go.
I would list Addai under concern, but I never thought he’d be ready anyway. In fact, if they DID put him out there, I would question the wisdom of doing so. Addai needs to heal that brachius plexus injury and return to full power.
