The Colts are coming off a brutal overtime loss against the Tennessee Titans. In the fourth quarter, quarterback Carson Wentz threw an ugly pick-6 late and then threw another interception in double coverage in overtime that gave the Titans a short field.
Meanwhile, the Jets pulled off the upset of the season in Week 8, beating the Cincinnati Bengals. Backup quarterback Mike White delivered a historic performance, throwing for 405 yards and three touchdowns. He became only the second quarterback after Cam Newton to throw for 400 yards in their first NFL start.
Neither team has had time to dwell on their sorrow or glee as they gear up for their Thursday night clash. Here’s the injury report and probable starting lineup for both teams:
Colts vs. Jets injury report
Veteran wide receiver T.Y. Hilton is out with a concussion. Safety Khari Willis has a calf injury and won’t suit up on Thursday.
Cornerback BoPete Keyes was a full participant in practice on Wednesday and will likely play on Thursday. Guard Quenton Nelson is questionable due to a toe injury but is expected to suit up against the Jets.
New York Jets
Quarterback Zach Wilson will remain sidelined due to a knee injury he suffered in Week 7 against the New England Patriots. Running back Tevin Coleman and defensive lineman are also out with hamstring and back injuries, respectively.
Offensive tackle George Fant is dealing with an ankle injury and was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday. His involvement will likely be a game-time decision. Wide receiver Corey Davis did not practice this week, but the Jets are hopeful that he’ll be available against the Colts.
