Greg Toler to practice this week
By Mike Wells
INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano gave an update on the team's injured players on Monday.
Receiver Griff Whalen, who was brought up from the practice squad Saturday, has a strain behind his right knee, but Pagano believes he’ll be fine. Whalen, who had four catches and a touchdown, was one of the last players to leave the locker room after Sunday’s game against Houston because he was receiving treatment.
It’ll be interesting to see if cornerback Greg Toler plays against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, because he’s been out eight weeks and the game will be played outdoors in the cold, which is something that could impact his decision to sit out another week since they wrap up the regular season at home against Jacksonville on Dec. 29. Toler went from being limited in practice to not practicing at all by the end of last week.
Offensive lineman Joe Reitz suffered a concussion in the first half against the Texans and is going through the league’s concussion protocol.
