San Diego starting right tackle D.J. Fluker is active for Monday night's game against Indianapolis, despite being questionable due to a calf injury. Fluker suffered the injury during his body slam tackle of Sio Moore last week.
Fluker was one of four key players for San Diego who were questionable heading into the game. Starting inside linebacker Donald Butler is inactive while starting outside linebacker Jarret Johnson is also out. Both players missed practice this week, Butler due to a groin injury and Johnson due to a hamstring injury. Johnson leads the team with 3.0 sacks. Backup cornerback Richard Marshall is active.
As expected the Colts will be without LaRon Landry and Bjoern Werner on defense. Both players were ruled out earlier in the week. Landry has not played since Week 2 due to an ankle injury while Werner isn't expected to return until the second half of the season after he suffered a torn plantar fascia in Week 4. The Colts are relatively healthy with just five players on the injury report this week. Linebacker Erik Walden was the only player in question due to injury and he is active despite an elbow injury.
Here is a complete look at the inactives for both teams.
S LaRon Landry, RB Dan Herron, OL Khaled Holmes, LB Kavell Conner, LB Bjoern Werner, DT Montori Hughes, and OT Xavier Nixon.
LB Donald Butler, LB Jarret Johnson, QB Brad Sorensen, S Brandon Taylor, OL Mike Remmers, DE Lawrence Guy and OL Chad Rinehart
