It was no surprise that Corey Simon had been downgraded from doubtful to out by Thursday's injury report, especially since Colts president Bill Polian was quoted as saying that until the team receives an updated report on Simon's knee, they don't even know if he'll be ready to play after the team's bye week.
And while it wasn't a total surprise to learn that safety Bob Sanders is now officially out as well for the Jets game, it was disappointing since it's always fun to watch him play. Fortunately, rookie Antoine Bethea had a great game after sliding over to Sanders' free safety spot while Mike Doss returned to his former starter's role at strong safety and played well last week.
Returning to work after missing Wednesday's practice were G Ryan Lilja (knee), DT Darrell Reid (elbow), and CB Marlin Jackson (concussion). Lilja's return could be very important with Dylan Gandy still sidelined with an abdomen problem. Gandy had been starting at LG in Lilja's absence since early in training camp. And with CB Nick Harper in danger of missing the game with an ankle injury that has kept him from practicing so far this week, getting Jackson back into the mix was important as he may need to start at LCB.
There was no change to the Jets injury report from Wednesday.
