Colts rule out Heyward-Bey for Patriots game
INDIANAPOLIS – Colts receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey will not play in tonight’s playoff game at New England.
Heyward-Bey did not practice all week because of a hamstring injury. Coach Chuck Pagano said Heyward-Bey was expected to miss at least a week and they signed former New England receiver Deion Branch to help fill the void.
Starting safety LaRon Landry and backup linebacker Josh McNary are listed as probable. Both have been full participants in practice this week after being diagnosed with concussions in last weekend’s 45-44 victory over Kansas City in a wild-card game.
Nose tackle Aubrayo Franklin, who got some extra rest this week, and offensive lineman Khaled Holmes, who hurt his calf, were the only other players on yesterday’s injury report. Both are listed as probable.
