Colts vs. Ravens injury report: Indy starting guard out with concussion

Larry French

The Colts will be without guard Joe Retiz, who has started eight of the team's nine previous games.

The Indianapolis Colts and the Baltimore Ravens face off in the Wild Card round of the AFC playoffs, and Friday's injury report shows that like most teams approaching the end of an NFL season they both have injury issues to deal with.

The Ravens have a number of key players nursing injury, but most expect to play. Safety Bernard Pollard (chest) is questionable for the game, while linebackers Terrell Suggs (biceps) and Ray Lewis (triceps) are probable. Pollard has been out for three weeks, while Suggs was out for Week 17. Lewis hasn't seen action since Week 6, and has announced that this season will be his last. Anquan Boldin's bruised shoulder is another source of concern for the Ravens, but he is also listed as probable and expected to play.

The Colts have a number of injured players as well, but only one who has been ruled completely out. Guard Joe Reitz suffered a concussion in Week 17 and has not been cleared to return. Jeff Linkenbach will start in his place. Indianapolis had five players listed as questionable on Friday's injury report: running back Delone Carter (ankle), nose tackle Antonio Johnson (ankle), tackle Winston Justice (shoulder), center A.Q. Shipley (knee) and safety Tom Zbikowski (knee). Only Carter had less than full participation in Friday's practice.
