Colts largely healthy Womens Adam Vinatieri Jersey , and need it going into Week 1 battle with Bengals The Indianapolis Colts have their hands full this Sunday in their season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals. A new scheme on both sides of the ball, new head coach, an even younger roster than a year ago, and they no longer have 7 of their top-10 most productive tacklers on the roster from 2017.Andrew Luck is back, and we should hold an elite quarterback to the standard that he can lead an inexperienced roster to a .500 record — give or take a game. Overall team health has been a real issue for the Colts over the past several seasons, but this season will be an extremely critical year for the team’s durability.The Colts have at least 19 rookies, or second-year players on their roster that should be expected to play large roles throughout the season. Aside from youth, they’ve still got some obvious holes at primary positions and without durability, this season could hit the skids in a heartbeat.Thus far, though, the Colts are largely healthy. The offensive line is a real point of interest because they’ve got more depth there in recent years. You can say the overall talent level is higher here, but if more injuries pop up it could get ugly pretty quickly. Denzelle Good is out for Week 1, but that’s it in terms of injury there. Braden Smith has some positional flexibility and that will go a long way with helping out, especially at right tackle where the jury is still very much out on the right side of the offensive line.Another spot where the Colts desperately need production from is the defensive line. Theoretically they’re deep, I suppose, and aside from rookie Tyquan Lewis who was placed on IR early this week, the rest of the group is pretty healthy.Kemoko Turay suffered some lengthy injuries in college, and was out for a bit through training camp, but his energy and burst will be heavily relied upon to give the Colts a pass rush presence off the edge. Otherwise we’re depending on Jabaal Sheard, Margus Hunt and Tarell Basham to boost this endeavor. The Colts don’t have room for injuries with this edge unit. Another youngster, Al-Quadin Muhammad, has been added to the group recently as well, but if this group doesn’t stay healthy, we’re likely looking to the practice squad for some help.Additionally, the Colts only have 4 true defensive tackles on the roster right now. Of course there will be fairly regular movement between these two positions, but a true rotation amongst Al Woods, Denico Autry, Grover Stewart and Hassan Ridgeway needs health in a big way to keep them fresh and generate some success.Can the Colts stop Joe Mixon, get to Andy Dalton or rein in A.J. Green and John Ross? The defense is mostly healthy Womens Ryan Grant Jersey , but they’ve got to stay that way throughout the game to have a chance.Other positions have similar situations on both sides of the ball for the Colts, but for Week 1 Anthony Castonzo and Marlon Mack are ‘questionable’ and that matters.They’ve both progressed nicely this week and other than Mack missing Wednesday’s practice, they were ‘limited’ for Thursday and Friday practices. If they both can’t go in the home opener, Le’Raven Clark likely starts at left tackle and Jordan Wilkins will act as the starter in place of Mack.That takes a big cut into what the Colts can reasonably expected to accomplish Sunday against a defensive line of Carlos Dunlap, Andrew Billings, Geno Atkins and Michael Johnson. And don’t mind the depth there with Jordan Willis, Carl Lawson, Sam Hubbard and Ryan Glasgow..Those “waves along the Colts front” Chris Ballard is hoping to build for the front seven on the Colts defense in the near future, will be staring right across the line of scrimmage at Andrew Luck Sunday. The Colts running game can’t afford to be trash if they hope for the offense to move the ball, and they’ll be similarly critical to keeping legitimate protection around their quarterback.Castonzo and Mack both play large roles in getting those two aspects to just a median level if we’re being honest. Otherwise, the Bengals’ defensive front might just feast on the Colts franchise passer.The Colts have a real challenge in Week 1, regardless of how the Bengals might be disrespected right now. They have real talent in all the right places, and the Colts need to have all hands on deck if they’re going to truly compete this week. Sam Darnold has another first in his NFL career.The New York Jets rookie quarterback appeared on the team's injury report Wednesday with his right elbow listed as the culprit.Now breathe, Jets fans. Darnold is totally OK."It's nothing crazy," Darnold said. "I felt fine throwing today."He banged up the elbow while making a linebacker-style tackle of Indianapolis' Malik Hooker on his interception in the first quarter of New York's 42-34 win last Sunday."I just made a tackle, and quarterbacks don't usually make tackles," Darnold said. "That might be part of it."Darnold was a full participant at practice, and wasn't affected physically by his elbow. He landed on the injury report, though, because he likely needed a little bit of treatment from the trainers.The 21-year-old signal caller, who played some linebacker in high school, might also want to brush up on his tackling form. Or, better yet, maybe avoid tackling altogether."Hopefully I'll try to not throw as many interceptions so I can stay away from making tackles," he said. "Obviously, when you throw the ball to the other team you've got to get them down, so I did that. But at the same time, I should probably tackle them without using my right arm as much."While Darnold was OK, wide receivers Quincy Enunwa Womens Denico Autry Jersey , Terrelle Pryor and Robby Anderson topped the list of banged-up players on the first injury report of the week.There are 18 players listed, meaning one-third of the entire 53-man roster."It's pretty lengthy," coach Todd Bowles said. "We'll see how they come back this week and get treatment. If not, we've got guys that we are working in just in case and we will be ready to go with those guys."Bowles announced that Enunwa (sprained ankle) and safety Marcus Maye (broken thumb) have already been ruled out for the Jets' game Sunday against Minnesota.It's uncertain how long the two might be sidelined, and Bowles provided no further update. But both Enunwa and Maye could miss multiple weeks.Pryor (groin) and Anderson (sore hamstring) didn't practice, and the Jets could look to add a receiver this week. New York worked out several players Tuesday, including Corey Coleman and Rishard Matthews."We're kicking tires with some people," Bowles said. "We'll see how the week goes and see how they're feeling."Bowles was evasive when asked if Dez Bryant could be a possibility."I'll go talk to the (personnel department) right now," he said. "We're not going to reveal what we're trying to do or what interests we have. We'll just go from there as it goes."One positive development was Charone Peake being a full participant after missing the past three games with a hamstring injury.Among those sitting out Wednesday's practice were: cornerbacks Trumaine Johnson (quadriceps) and Buster Skrine (concussion), running back Isaiah Crowell (foot), defensive lineman Leonard Williams (back) and linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis (foot).With Maye already out and Johnson and Skrine uncertain to play, the Jets could have to fiddle with their secondary against one of the NFL's top receiving duos.Adam Thielen leads the league with 58 catches — the most by a player in the first six games in history — and 712 yards receiving with four touchdowns. Stefon Diggs is tied for seventh with 40 receptions for 435 yards and three TDs."It's a huge challenge," Bowles said. "Obviously, we get a challenge every week, but these two guys do everything well. Usually you get a speed guy, a deep guy or a short guy. Both of these guys can do everything."With the injuries in the secondary, rookie Parry Nickerson could see extended time working in Skrine's usual slot role — which means he could face Thielen often."He'll be ready to play," Bowles said of Nickerson, a sixth-rounder. "He's going to face that kind of caliber every week, maybe not of Thielen's caliber, but he's going to face those kind of guys every week. He just has to carry out his assignment."Center Spencer Long was limited at practice with knee and finger ailments.Long has had a few wayward snaps out of the shotgun the past few weeks and Bowles acknowledged that the finger could be "a little bit" of a factor.Others listed on the injury report as full practice participants: wide receiver/returner Andre Roberts (foot/ankle), linebacker Brandon Copeland (ankle), safeties Jamal Adams (ankle) and Doug Middleton (hamstring), defensive lineman Nathan Shepherd (shoulder) and left tackle Kelvin Beachum (foot).NOTES: Defensive coordinator Kacy Rodgers was with the team for practice for the first time since missing the past two games while dealing with a "serious" illness. Bowles said Monday that Rodgers was medically cleared and would be eased back into his role. ... RB Elijah McGuire was officially designated to return from IR, meaning he could begin practicing Wednesday and play in a game in a few weeks after injuring his foot in training camp. ... K Jason Myers was selected as the AFC special teams player of the week after setting the Jets' franchise record by making seven field goals last Sunday against Indianapolis. ... OL Dieguot Joseph was signed to the practice squad, and RB De'Angelo Henderson was released.
