INDIANAPOLIS —Two rookie playmakers on both sides of the ball will not suit up for the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, when they take on the Cleveland Browns at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Colts head coach Chuck Pagano on Friday said cornerback Quincy Wilson and running back Marlon Mack have been ruled out against the Browns.
Also ruled out for Sunday were quarterback Andrew Luck (right shoulder), center Ryan Kelly (foot), inside linebacker Anthony Walker (hamstring) and wide receiver Chester Rogers (hamstring).
Wilson has not practiced all week after suffering a knee injury. He is coming off his first-career start last Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, in which the 2017 second-round pick out of Florida logged two tackles and two passes defensed.
While Wilson will not play on Sunday, the team hopes to possibly see the return of another key member of its secondary in that game. Top cornerback Vontae Davis, who suffered a groin injury in the third preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers and has missed the first two games of the regular season, returned to practice this week in a limited capacity, and on Friday, he was in on 18 snaps with the defense, Pagano said.
Pagano wasn't quite ready to confirm whether Davis would be ready to go by Sunday, however.
"He's had a good week," Pagano said. "He's making good progress. We'll see what tomorrow brings and go from there."
Mack, meanwhile, has been dealing with a shoulder injury. He was limited in practice on Wednesday, but did not practice on Thursday or Friday.
A fourth-round pick this year out of South Florida, Mack this season has played in both games for the Colts, running the ball 16 times for 21 yards and a touchdown, while also logging two receptions for 32 yards.
Pagano said the team will likely make a roster move to elevate running back Matt Jones from the practice squad to the active roster to take Mack's spot for Sunday's game.
Jones, a third-year Florida product, was claimed off waivers by the Colts on Sept. 3, but waived prior to their season opener against the Los Angeles Rams. He was re-signed to the practice squad on Sept. 12.
In 20 career games, Jones has ran the ball 243 times for 950 yards (3.9 yards per carry) with six touchdowns, while he has also been a threat catching the ball, logging 27 receptions for 377 yards and a touchdown through the air.
Browns head coach Hue Jackson on Friday confirmed outside linebacker Jamie Collins (concussion) will be out on Sunday, while defensive end Myles Garrett (ankle) and wide receiver Sammie Coates (hamstring) are doubtful.
