Inside linebacker Jerrell Freeman (hamstring) is one of three Colts ruled out for Sunday against Tennessee. The others are fellow linebacker Mario Harvey (hamstring) and defensive tackle Arthur Jones (ankle). The team's Friday injury report is extensive, though guard Hugh Thornton (ankle) is the lone player listed as doubtful. Deemed questionable are safety Colt Anderson (groin) and linebacker Andy Studebaker (hamstring). The half-dozen probables are cornerbacks Greg Toler (ribs), Vontae Davis (ankle) and Darius Butler (neck), wideout T.Y. Hilton (ankle), guard Joe Reitz (ankle) and linebacker Erik Walden (knee).
The Colts made a slew of roster moves Tuesday, which included placing running back Dan Herron and Mario Harvey on season-ending injured reserve. The Colts also elevated outside linebacker Daniel Adongo and tackle Xavier Nixon from the practice squad to the active roster, while adding fullback Robert Hughes and defensive tackle Jeris Pendleton to the practice squad.
After leading tackler Jerrell Freeman got knocked out by a concussion, Colts linebacker Mario Harvey played a lot of snaps Monday against the Chargers. So many, in fact, that Harvey ended up leading the team with 10 tackles, including nine solo stops and one for loss. Harvey had three total tackles in the previous five games. Forced into a prominent role, Harvey was decent against the run but struggled mightily in coverage.
