Kicker Rodrigo Blankenship missed practice today with a right hip injury. Blankenship injured his hip in the Monday night game against the Ravens and it affected his performance massively. Blankenship looks like a long shot to play this Sunday against the Texans. The Colts have signed a potential replacement in Michael Badgley.

Linebacker Darius Leonard did not practice today due to ankle and shoulder injuries. Leonard was a huge factor for the Colts on Monday against the Ravens and the Colts need him massively. Hopefully Leonard can continue to play through his injuries on Sunday.

Cornerback Xavier Rhodes and Andrew Sendejo both missed practice today with concussions. Both Rhodes and Sendejo picked up concussions on Monday night against the Ravens, both will have to work there at through the concussion protocol in order to play Sunday.

Right tackle Braden Smith missed practice today with thumb and foot injuries. Smith hasn’t practiced since he injured his foot against the Seahawks week 1. It looks like Smith will miss another week and it will be Pryor or Davenport to replace Smith this week.

Defensive end Kemoko Turay missed practice today with a groin injury. Turay has been struggling with niggling injuries all year and it looks like another injury has cropped up. Turay has been playing more since Kwity Paye’s injury, the defense needs its best pass rushers going forward.

Cornerback Rock Ya-Sin missed practice today with an ankle injury. Ya-Sin has missed the last two games with the ankle injury and with Rhodes concussion and little to none proven depth at the position the Colts defense needs him back.

Defensive end Kwity Paye practiced today but was limited with a hamstring injury. Paye has been struggling with a hamstring injury since leaving with the injury against the Titans. Paye has missed two games with the hamstring injury but him managing to practice today, even though it was limited, it some progress.

Running back Jordan Wilkins missed practice today with a non-football illness. Wilkins missed the Ravens game with the illness and looks to still be ill.
