Two Starting Offensive Linemen Inactive for Indianapolis Colts


The Indianapolis Colts have reason to fear for their prized quarterback, No. 1 overall pick Andrew Luck.

The Colts have deactivated right tackle Winston Justice, who suffered a concussion in Week 1 against the Bears. Justice was listed as probable all week, but apparently wasn’t recovered enough to suit up against the Vikings.

Indianapolis is also missing their starting left guard Joe Reitz, who also missed Week 1 with a knee injury. Seth Olson, a former Vikings’ practice squad player, will fill in for Reitz and Jeff Linkenbach will play right tackle in place of Justice.

The Colts were dominated at the line of scrimmage by the Bears in Week 1, and now, without two of their starters, the flood gates should be wide open for Jared Allen, Brian Robison and Co.

Add a rookie quarterback to the mix for the Colts, and we should see a pretty good performance by the Vikings defense Sunday.
