2. Colts banged up at LB

As the practice week commences, the Colts have just three healthy linebackers sitting on their roster. They’re best backer, two-time All-Pro Darius Leonard missed the second half last week with a groin injury.

The backers on the active roster right now include Anthony Walker, backup Zaire Franklin and a rookie named Jordan Glasgow, who had primarily been a special teamer.

The injuries are brutal for a unit that boast the league’s No. 1 ranked defense heading into Week 5.

The Browns could really do some damage via Hunt and the rest of the ground game with Indy decimated at the LB position.

Additionally, once the run-game gets going, Baker Mayfield should be able to run play action to perfection with none of Indy’s current backers being able to cover tight ends Austin Hooper or Hunter Bryant.
