Greetings from Lucas Oil Stadium
By Paul Kuharsky
INDIANAPOLIS -- Greetings from Lucas Oil Stadium. It’s cold out, and the roof is closed as you’d expect.
The Colts are holding Kelvin Hayden (neck) out, which means Justin Tryon at left cornerback. Kavell Conner will be at weakside linebacker for the injured Clint Session and Donald Brown starts for Joseph Addai.
Austin Collie (concussion) is active and could be a huge piece to this game. Jerry Hughes is healthy but inactive.
The Jaguars are healthier, but without two starters on defense. Linebacker Justin Durant will be replaced by Russell Allen, but Allen won’t be part of the nickel package we will see a bunch that brings William Middleton on the field. Safety Sean Considine fills in again for Courtney Greene, and the Jaguars endure a drop-off there in sure tackling.
I tweeted this picture of the view from my seat. But don’t worry, I have binoculars.
The complete inactive lists:
Jaguars: QB Todd Bouman, WR John Matthews, WR Tiquan Underwood, Greene, Durant, OT Daniel Baldridge, DE Aaron Morgan, DT Nate Collins.
Colts: Hayden, Addai, RB Mike Hart, Session, G Jamey Richard, G Jacques McClendon, G Jaimie Thomas, Hughes.
