ProFootballDoc: Injury Impact On Colts vs. Ravens Monday Night Matchup

Videos by OutKick

Overall, our health matchups yielded a winning 4-3 record on Sunday, but only if we count two honorable mention picks. The five selections drop us to 14-11 on the season.

We fared better than the Giants, who lost their QB, RB, top 3 WRs and the left side of their offensive line. Saquon Barkley will be out for a few weeks with a significant low inversion ankle sprain, and we will see when Daniel Jones can clear the concussion protocol.

In the meantime, tonight’s matchup is relatively even, health-wise.

INDIANAPOLIS +7.5 vs RAVENS under 46.5

The key here is both offensive lines have injury issues. Sixty percent of the Colts and Ravens blockers have health issues. For the first time all season, Indianapolis will have a healthy Carson Wentz. The preseason foot surgery and ankle sprains on both sides are behind him, but he is still without TY Hilton. Baltimore’s running back injuries are well documented.

There are some secondary issues for both teams, as documented on the Field View above.
Overall, this should be a close contest. Listen to the ProFootballDoc Podcast on OutKick or go to www.profootballdoc.com for the best injury analysis.
