Three Indianapolis Colts starters miss practice due to injuries

Friday November 21st, 2014

Indianapolis Colts starters Gosder Cherilus, Dwayne Allen and Greg Toler sat out of the team's practice on Thursday due to injuries, ESPN's Mike Wells reports.

Cherilus, starting offensive right tackle, has missed both days of practice so far this week with a shoulder injury. He has started all 10 games for the Colts, but has dealt with multiple injuries in recent weeks. Last week he missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday due to groin problems. Several weeks earlier he was limited by a knee injury.

This is the first week he has been sidelined by issues with his shoulder.

Tight end Dwayne Allen is dealing with an ankle injury that could potentially keep him out of Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to Wells. Allen has appeared in all 10 games this season, catching 26 passes for 374 yards, seven touchdowns and 22 first downs. Should he sit out, Coby Fleener would replace him in the lineup.

Cornerback Greg Toler sat out Wednesday and Thursday this week after complaining of headaches on Monday, after the Colts' 42-20 loss to the New England Patriots. Toler will have to go through the league's concussion protocol process before he can return to the field.

Toler has recorded 39 tackles this season, as well as two interceptions and one touchdown.
