While the Tennessee Titans (1-2) have been decimated by injuries at key positions, the Indianapolis Colts (1-1-1) are dealing with health problems of their own.
The two AFC South rivals will meet on Sunday in Indianapolis for a critical divisional clash. However, there is a possibility that the Colts will enter Week 4’s contest shorthanded.
Indianapolis released its injury report following Wednesday’s practice. Six former Pro Bowlers were included on the list.
Alongside S Julian Blackmon, DT DeForest Buckner, CB Stephon Gilmore, C Ryan Kelly, DE Yannick Ngakoue, and RB Johnathon Taylor were held out of Wednesday’s session entirely.
Colts All-Pro linebacker Shaquille Leonard (back) logged a full practice, and appears to be on track to make his season debut.
Taylor popped up on the injury report with a toe injury, though NFL Network Insider Tom Pelissero reports that it is merely precautionary.

My understanding is it's precautionary after Taylor had some soreness coming out of the #Chiefs game. Indy hosts the #Titans on Sunday. "He'll be ready to roll," source said.
The Colts’ laundry list of injuries will be something to monitor as Sunday’s matchup draws nearer.
