The Indianapolis Colts (10-4) released their injury report Thursday ahead of the Week 16 matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers (11-3), and it seems one of their defensive ends is trending in the wrong direction.

After starting the week with a limited tag on Wednesday’s injury report, defensive end Al-Quadin Muhammad was downgraded to a DNP tag, which means his status for Sunday’s game is officially in doubt.

Here’s a look at Thursday’s injury report for the Colts:

Notes

  • Muhammad will definitely need to be monitored entering the weekend. Logging a practice might be necessary for him to play on Sunday.

  • DT DeForest Buckner, QB Philip Rivers and LT Anthony Castonzo all returned to practice on Thursday. They should be expected to play barring a change.

  • TE Jack Doyle popped up on the injury report Thursday with a quad injury so he will need to be monitored as well. If he can’t go, Mo Alie-Cox and Trey Burton will see bigger roles.

The Colts have one more practice on Friday before the injury designations are released for the weekend.
