"[Coming] out of the ball game [Sunday] the only serious injury was Fili Moala. He got an ACL and will be out for the year. Everybody else came out pretty clean," Arians said. "We should be able to get [tight end Coby] Fleener and [cornerback Vontae] Davis back this week."
Fleener (shoulder) and Davis (knee) have both missed the last four games. They were hurt in the Colts' Oct. 28 overtime win at Tennessee.
While the loss of Moala will hurt, the Colts have developed some additional depth along the defensive line due to other injuries.
"Obviously it’s a blow because Fili was playing extremely well for us. We’ll pick up the pieces and go on with the defensive line," Arians said. "We’ve had so many injuries there this year that we’ve built some depth. We’ll just continue on with the guys that we have at that position. Clifton Geathers and Lawrence Guy will fill in some roles there along with Ricardo Mathews.”
Rookie nose tackle Josh Chapman will continue to be a game-day decision. Chapman's surgically-repaired knee has responded well the last several weeks. But the Colts aren't going to rush the former Alabama standout into a game. Not just yet anyway.
Moala's injury won't change that mind set either.
"It's a totally a different position. We’re just going to make sure that he’s right before we put him out there," Arians said.
Freeney playing well -- Despite the lack of big sack or tackle numbers this season for outside linebacker Dwight Freeney, the Colts aren't displeased with his performance. Far from it.
"I think he’s been very productive and disruptive. The sacks just aren’t there. I think part of that is because [outside linebacker] Robert [Mathis] wasn't on the other side for a while, so people could game plan him. We moved him around a lot, but he’s being extremely disruptive," Arians voiced.
