INDIANAPOLIS -- Greeting from Lucas Oil Stadium on a very cold night.
Ryan Diem (back) is out for the Colts and will be replaced by undrafted rookie Jeff Linkenbach. He had a good start for Charlie Johnson at left tackle during the regular season.
Corner Kelvin Hayden’s been played on IR, replaced on the roster by offensive tackle Joe Reitz, who’s an inactive along with Al Alfalava, Javarris James, Clint Session, Jamey Richard, Diem, Jaimie Thomas and Johnson.
The Colts will also miss Antonio Johnson (chest), the defensive tackle who’s been part of the improved play-making against the run game.
The Jets inactive list includes no surprises.
