The Indianapolis Colts received more good and bad news on the injury front ahead of Week 3.
Wide receivers Michael Pittman Jr. and Alec Pierce are set to return after missing last week’s matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Colts insider Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reported Pierce cleared the concussion protocol on the night of September 22. Furthermore, Indianapolis head coach Frank Reich said during a press conference on September 23 that Pittman is “ready to go.”
But the Colts also ruled out All-Pro linebacker Shaquille Leonard for the third straight game. Leonard has yet to make his 2022 debut despite having practiced in full the past two weeks.
In addition to Leonard, rookie left tackle Bernhard Raimann has also been ruled out because of injury.
