Colts receiver Donte Moncrief is expected to practice on Wednesday -- his first time seeing the field since Week 2. Moncrief fractured his shoulder blade but avoided having surgery.
The Colts are magically just one game out of first place in the wide-open AFC South following the Texans' loss to the Broncos on Monday night. They face an uphill battle the next few weeks with a home matchup against the Chiefs on Sunday, followed by a game at Lambeau against the Packers in Week 9. Any sort of reinforcements before then would be welcomed by Indy.
Here are some other injuries we are tracking on Tuesday:
Linebacker Brandon Marshall is day to day with a hamstring injury, Palmer reported.
- Steelers tight end Ladarius Green is practiced. Green remains on the PUP list and can practice up to 21 days before Pittsburgh must activate him or return him to injured reserve. An ankle injury has kept Green off the field all season thus far. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (meniscus) also practiced.
- Jaguars defensive tackle Roy Miller tore his right Achilles tendon and will be placed on injured reserve, the team announced. He will undergo surgery later this week.
Baltimore also designated safety Matt Elam to return from injured reserve. Elam injured his knee and had surgery in the preseason.
