Injury Report: Colts getting healthier ahead of road game against the Jets The Colts’ injury report is pretty ugly. The list of valuable players on it has seemed to balloon out of control as the season has progressed. There is some good news this week though. It seems as though some players will be headed back to the field and will be set to make an impact on Sunday.Darius Leonard is a major part of the Colts new-look defense Youth Quincy Wilson Jersey , and he was nowhere to be seen yesterday. Today however, he was practicing in a limited capacity and said he expects to be out there on Sunday. That would be a huge lift for the Colts’ defense. Also getting back to full practice after being held out or limited were Nate Hairston, Anthony Walker, and Malik Hooker. Getting those guys back in action is a big deal for the defense and will bode well for the unit as a whole. Anthony Castonzo, Marlon Mack, Kenny Moore, Hassan Ridgeway, and Quincy Wilson have now put together back-to-back practices where they fully participated. That means this list is likely to be cut nearly in half by game day. In particular, getting Castonzo and Mack back and healthy will be hugely impactful for an offense that has struggled to get any kind of running game started. We haven’t gotten to see Castonzo paired with Quenton Nelson, and it looks like this is the week where that happens. In a bit of a surprise, we saw the Clayton Geathers return to limited practice today as well, which is great news. A concussion and neck injury caused him to leave the game last Thursday and called into question whether he would be able to return or if he was destined to hit IR. While his participation in a limited capacity doesn’t mean he is likely to play, it is definitely a more positive sign than had he continued to be out entirely. Speaking of guys who are out entirely, there are still some pretty important ones. T.Y. Hilton and Jack Doyle are both likely to miss Sunday and are considered week to week. Additionally, Eric Ebron’s leg has apparently gone on strike and left him in the lurch, based on the Colts’ description of his “shin/quad/ankle/knee” injury. He has not practiced this week and that certainly isn’t good. It appears that this season Andrew Luck will not be allowed to have nice things. Ryan Kelly has also missed all this week with a calf injury, and that is trouble. His likely replacement would be Evan Boem Youth Darius Leonard Jersey , who the Colts signed off the Rams’ practice squad this week after sending Matt Slauson to IR. Matthias Farley, Denico Autry, and Margus Hunt are also on the list of guys who didn’t practice either yesterday or today. I guess if we’re trying to be positive, this is not nearly as bad a list as we were dealing with on Thursday night against the Patriots. What remains to be seen is how the Colts offense will perform without its top three weapons and with an offensive line that has gotten back its starting tackles but looks as though it will be down 2 of its interior linemen. After the final seconds ticked off, Derek Carr ran straight to the Black Hole with several teammates before taking a victory lap around the Coliseum to celebrate with his fans.If this truly is the final game ever in Oakland, the Raiders gave their fans plenty to cheer at the end of another disappointing season.Dwayne Harris returned a punt 99 yards for a touchdown after Denver failed to down it, Oakland native Doug Martin ran for 107 yards and a score and the Raiders beat the Broncos 27-14 on Monday night in what was possibly the final NFL game ever at the Coliseum.”It was emotional because as I was doing it, I was remembering all the memories from breaking my ankle, to fourth-quarter comeback wins, to throwing three picks in a quarter. Everything,” Carr said. “Just how loyal our fans are. I know it stings. I know it hurts that we might not play here. I don’t know. I was going to make sure that if this was the last time, I wanted to say thank you in whatever way I could.”The Raiders (4-11) are set to move to Las Vegas in 2020 and have no lease for next year. With Oakland officials having sued the team over the move, the Raiders are looking into other options for 2019, including AT&T Park in San Francisco.A decision is expected before the Super Bowl, but many of the die-hards came out for this game knowing it could be the last NFL game ever in the stadium that opened in 1966.”I don’t want to get too sentimental tonight,” coach Jon Gruden said. “Hopefully that’s not the case. That’s for other people to decide. You see the love affair these fans have for the Raiders.”While the Raiders celebrated, the Broncos (6-9) hit a low after being assured of having back-to-back seasons with losing records for the first time since 1971-72. After going 5-11 in coach Vance Joseph’s first season , Denver has done little better in year two and general manager John Elway could be ready to make a change after the season.The Broncos opened the month with playoff aspirations, but three straight losses to teams that entered the game with losing records ended those hopes and have the team searching for answers.”The message is to keep fighting,” Joseph said. “That’s what we do right now. We have one more game left and this team’s fought all year.”Shortly after Oakland native Marshawn Lynch lit the torch in honor of late owner Al Davis before the game, Harris delivered the biggest highlight with a punt return that was tied for the second-longest ever.Andre Holmes deflected Colby Wadman’s punt just before it crossed the goal line and Isaac Yiadom was in position to down it at the 1. But he couldn’t hold onto the ball and Harris picked it up before racing 99 yards down the sideline for the touchdown that stunned the Broncos. Only Patrick Peterson (99 yards) and Robert Bailey (103) have punt returns that long in NFL history.”As soon as he touched it I knew I was going to try to return it if he had tried to throw it back,” Harris said. “I’ve been trying to get that play all season. … As soon as he did it I knew it was an opportunity for me to take advantage of it.”The Broncos weren’t much better at the other phases of the game, committing pre-snap penalties, generating almost no consistent offense in the first half and then allowing Martin to scamper 24 yards untouched around the end to make it 14-0 midway through the second quarter.”It was definitely important to me and to the players to give this win to (the Oakland fans) for Christmas,” Martin said. “Merry Christmas to Oakland. Hope you enjoyed it. We love you.”Case Keenum got the Broncos on the board with a pair of TD passes in the second half to DaeSean Hamilton and Courtland Sutton. But it wasn’t enough as Jalen Richard scored on a 3-yard run for Oakland and the Raiders sealed the win with interceptions by Marcus Gilchrist and Erik Harris.RED FLAG ALERTGruden threw his challenge flag after Keenum’s 19-yard TD pass to Sutton, believing that Keenum crossed the line before the throw. But scoring plays are automatically reviewed and the replay booth confirmed the call without a stoppage. Oakland was charged with a timeout, the second time this season Gruden has tried to challenge a TD.FIRST-HALF SHUTOUTThe Raiders came into the game allowing the most points per game in franchise history since 1961, but gave up nothing in the opening half against the Broncos. It’s the third straight meeting between the teams where Denver failed to score in the opening half. Those are the only times in the past 90 games that Oakland has pitched a first-half shutout.MILESTONE WATCHBroncos running back Phillip Lindsay passed the 1,000-yard rushing mark in the first half, joining Dominic Rhodes and LaGarrette Blount as the only undrafted rookies to top 1,000 in a season in the Super Bowl era. Lindsay ran for 46 yards before leaving with a wrist injury and as has 1,037 on the season. He needs 68 more to break Rhodes’ record set in 2001 for Indianapolis.UP NEXTBroncos: Host the Chargers on Sunday.Raiders: Visit the Chiefs on Sunday.
