Key Colts Out For Game Vs. Eagles

The Colts released the names of players who did not make the trip here for Sunday's game, and the list is considerable for Indianapolis. Not playing will be running backs Joseph Addai and Mike Hart, tight end Brody Eldridge, linebacker Clint Session and cornerback Justin Tryon. What does it mean for this game for the Eagles? We asked Adam Caplan, from FoxSports.com.

"I think Brody Eldridge, who is their blocking tight end, is going to be missed. They are using an offensive guard as a backup tight end," said Caplan. "Going with Donald Brown, who is rusty and who has been banged up, challenges their running game. On defense, they will be shortchanged at weakside linebacker without Session, and they are shorthanded at cornerback because Justin Tryon, a backup who started last week, is out. That means Jacob Lacey and veteran DeShea Townsend, who doesn't move all that well in the twilight of his career, is going to be the nickel cornerback.

"This impacts the game. The Eagles will spread them out as they usually do and they should get some good matchups. The Eagles have to take advantage. The Eagles have a very clear advantage here, especially here on a short week."
