      gainst 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 , 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 Cheap Chester Rogers Jersey , 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, 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. The Eagles parlayed the “Philly Special” into a Super Bowl touchdown pass from tight end Trey Burton to quarterback Nick Foles. The Colts, now led by former Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich, used a variation of the play on Sunday against the Titans.Reich explained to PFT by phone after the 38-10 victory that the Colts call it the “Ebron Special,” since it was designed for tight end Eric Ebron to make the throw to quarterback Andrew Luck.The play has been in the pipeline for a few weeks. Reich explained that it was the product of coaches trying to come up ideas for featuring Ebron, given the season he’s had.“We sit around and say, ‘What can we do with him this week?’” Reich said.So why has Ebron, who was a disappointment in Detroit, flourished in Indianapolis?“”We’re all growing,” Ebron said. “We’re all maturing. Eric’s relationship with Andrew Luck has flourished.”Reich explained that the “Ebron Special” differed from the “Philly Special” in one key way. Instead of the running back taking a direct snap before flipping it to the tight end, Luck received the snap and handed it to the running back. This resulted in different timing Cheap Malik Hooker Jersey , requiring Luck to get into his route more quickly than Foles, who had sauntered to the line of scrimmage before the snap and was able to nonchalantly get wide open. With Luck having to move more quickly to the spot where the ball would be thrown, the defender noticed what was happening, and he was able to cover the play.For that reason, any further iteration of the “Ebron Special” could be more likely to begin with a direct snap. If it’s ever used again.And, as these things usually go, it will be used again when it’s least expected to be used again.
