Today's injury report brings a mixed bag of good and bad news for the Colts.

Full Participation: Joseph Addai, Mike Newton, Jamey Richard.

Limited Participation: Brody Eldridge, Mike Hart, Clint Session.

Did Not Practice: Al Afalava, Dwight Freeney, Tyjuan Hagler, Kelvin Hayden, Charlie Johnson, Dan Muir.

It is good to see Addai fully participate, and hopefully this is a sign that he is moving closer to a return, because the Colts are 3-4 in his absence this season.

Donald Brown had a big game last week, but Addai is still such a big part of this offense and is a better blocker and receiver than Brown, Hart or Jevarris James. His return to the field would be great for the team.

It would be huge if the Colts could get Clint Session back soon, he is such a great linebacker and adds an edge of toughness to the Colts defense.

Freeney is just getting his usual day of rest, and Hagler has an illness, so nothing serious with those two.

But Hayden is key to the defense, the team needs him badly now that Jerraud Powers is out for the year. His status is definitely one to keep an eye on, as he recovers from a neck injury.

Charlie Johnson is dealing with a groin injury and Dan Muir has a chest injury, they are also two players to watch over the week.

There a few players who are hurt for the Colts, but it is early in the week and there is still time for them to get back into practice and ready for gameday hopefully.

The Colts play at Oakland this Sunday, 4:05 PM start time.
