Colts to be without three starters at Tennessee

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indianapolis Colts will be without three starters in Sunday’s game at Tennessee. Coach Chuck Pagano ruled out tight end Dwayne Allen (knee), right tackle Gosder Cherilus (groin) and linebacker Bjoern Werner (shoulder) on Friday.

Coby Fleener will start at tight end, Joe Reitz, who is listed as questionable, will likely start at right tackle if he plays, but Pagano, as he often does, wouldn’t reveal who will start at linebacker in Werner’s spot.

Pagano will go rookie Jonathan Newsome, Shaun Phillips or Andy Studebaker as the rush linebacker.

Here’s the rest of the Colts’ injury report for Sunday’s game:

Questionable: Linebacker Jerrell Freeman (hamstring), receiver T.Y. Hilton (hamstring)

Probable: Defensive lineman Cory Redding (knee), guard Hugh Thornton (knee), linebacker Erik Walden (knee)
