Broncos starting left tackle Mike Lepsis and Colts safety Mike Doss both tore their ACLs last weekend, which will require both of them to have season-ending surgery. Doss has already been put on the injured reserve list, and the team filled his spot with Dexter Reid, who was a reserve at safety last year for Indianapolis.
Oddly enough, even though it's been announced at the Broncos official website that Lepsis will have surgery in about a week and will require about 6 months to recover, he's listed on Denver's report as "questionable" for this weekend. Perhaps that's just a tongue-in-cheek swipe at the Colts, who have regularly listed in excess of 15 players on their reports this season.
Indianapolis has declared starting DT Montae Reagor out due to his surgery this week for facial lacerations following an accident on Sunday prior to the game against Washington where his SUV was broadsided and flipped over. The team also listed slot WR Brandon Stokley as questionable along with LB and special teams star Keith O'Neil. But neither are expected to play, and they didn't practice on Wednesday.
Although the Colts have 19 players on their report this week, Stokley, Reagor and O'Neil were the only ones who couldn't practice on Wednesday.
Denver had only one other player than Lepsis who couldn't practice --starting RDT Gerard Warren who is questionable with a toe injury. A few others are listed as probable.
