Colts leave 3 injured players behind

Three injured Indianapolis players will not travel to Tennessee

with the rest of the team.

The Colts said Wednesday that cornerbacks Josh Gordy and Greg

Toler and safety Delano Howell were all ruled out of Thursday’s

crucial contest between the top two teams in the AFC South.

Toler, a starter, and Gordy, a backup, will both miss their

third straight games because of groin injuries. Indy’s pass defense

has given up four TD passes of 40 or more yards since they went

out.

Howell, a backup, will miss Thursday night’s game with a neck

injury.

Right guard Mike McGlynn is listed as probable despite having a

fractured right thumb. Nose tackle Josh Chapman also is listed as

probable with a knee injury.
