Colts Injury/Illness Update: QB Philip Rivers Has ‘Pretty Sore’ Toe; DL Denico Autry Has Chance to Play

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Philip Rivers is admittedly dealing with some pain, as his injured toe is still ‘pretty sore’.

However, the durable field general, who’s made 234 career consecutive starts, should still be able to play in this upcoming weekend’s pivotal game against the Tennessee Titans:

Colts QB Philip Rivers "is pretty sore" with regards to the toe injury he suffered in Sunday's win. Colts will monitor him as the week progresses,...

The Indianapolis Colts overcame a 14-point first half deficit to defeat the NFC leading Green Bay Packers in overtime. There were big contributions in each phase of the game, including contributions from rookies and backups.

Starting right tackle Braden Smith missed the game, signaling a huge blow to an offensive line that has enjoyed incredible continuity. Losing Smith alone could have changed the outcome but the Colts were able to get important...

The Indianapolis Colts went into Sunday’s game on the back of a big division win on primetime Thursday Night Football against the Tennessee Titans in week 10. The Colts came up against a strong team who were coming off a 2 game winning streak having beaten the Jacksonville Jaguars the previous week.

Reflecting on Key Colts Players: Week 11 vs Green Bay

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

The Colts welcomed the Packers to Indy on Sunday and left week 11 with a 34-31 victory over one of the best teams the NFL has to offer. There were so many ups and downs all game long, but the Indy defense came up big in the second half, and the offense did just enough to win the game.

Prior to Sunday’s contest, I offered two players that I thought would be keys for the Colts to take down the Packers. You can find that article linked here.

Let’s see how...

Highlights from week 11: Colts vs. Packers

In what will go down as an instant classic for Colts fans will live in infamy for Packers fans. The Colts defense started as it often has this season; poorly. After halftime the unit did what it has also often done; adjusted to their opponent and took away what they do well.

The Colts offense continued to come together, led by Philip Rivers. The offense seems that it is starting to find itself and Frank Reich’s play calling is reflecting that...

It seems like every week Philip Rivers is either the MVP or the worst player of the game. Luckily, yesterday we saw the good side of him. Rivers did a really good job picking apart the Packers’ suspect passing defense, and his pocket awareness allowed him to escape several pressures from the right side of the line. His lone interception was tipped at the line, so it is not entirely on Rivers (even though it was the fault of...

Thanks to the nflFastR project and NFL NextGen Stats for the timely sources of data. Commentary will be brief but feel free to let me know in the comments that stats aren’t everything. (click charts for larger view)

Another good week.

HOW WELL?

These charts always exclude any dropback where there is a fumble after a completion as that has nothing to do with QB skill, but it does include the results of tipped passes as those are the QBs “fault”. So the...

Colts vs Packers Week 11 Winners and Losers

Douglas DeFelice-USA TODAY Sports

In a roller coaster game against the best offense in the NFL, the Colts managed to scrape their way out of overtime with a win, despite doing their best not to late in regulation. It was a tough, gritty, messy, team victory that should give them both areas to greatly improve on as well as some remaining concerns. Here are this week’s winners and losers.

The Indianapolis Colts came into their Week 11 matchup with the Green Bay Packers ready to follow up a huge divisional win against the Tennessee Titans in Week 10.

The Colts were down two scores at the half, as the Packers scored on both Colts’ turnovers, but the defense allowed only 3 second half points, and the Colts’ offense put together four drives of 8 plays or more and were able to gain the lead, then finish off the Packers in OT.

This was truly a complete team win, from all three...

The Indianapolis Colts closed out an important matchup against one of the most difficult opponents remaining on their 2020 schedule. The Green Bay Packers are a shoe-in playoff team and one of the favorites in the NFC. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers is a favorite for the 2020 NFL MVP.
