The Colts will be without RB Donald Brown (hamstring), WR Anthony Gonzalez (ankle) and DB Jacob Lacey (foot) for their Sunday-night game against the Redskins.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the three players did not travel to Washington for the Week Six game. All three players were listed as questionable in the team's injury report on Friday, but none of them participated in practice.

Gonzalez and Brown both had returned to practice earlier in the week.

The way we see it

With the return of Pierre Garcon, QB Peyton Manning has enough weapons at wide receiver to survive the loss of Gonzalez. But running back is a bit of an issue as starter Joseph Addai is questionable, as is third-string back Mike Hart. The Colts are just 3-2 this season and struggled to score points against the Chiefs in Week Five. The secondary has been extremely injury-plagued this season and would like to get Lacey back.

Fantasy Spin

Keep an eye out Sunday to see which back starts for the Colts. Whoever it is will be the workhorse, but Manning will likely air it out a lot on Sunday night.
