Anthony Gonzalez Doubtful

It's not clear how long we'll see many Colts starters on Sunday. One we probably won't see at all is wide receiver Anthony Gonzalez.

The availability of Anthony Gonzalez for the Indianapolis Colts' final two regular-season and the postseason remains in doubt after the third-year receiver did not practice Wednesday.

Gonzalez, the team's 2007 first-round draft pick, has not played since spraining a ligament in his right knee in the Sept. 13 season opener against Jacksonville. He suffered a setback during his initial rehabilitation and underwent arthroscopic surgery Nov. 5.


Gonzalez went through the Colts' light workout Monday, and team president Bill Polian said on his Monday night radio show the plan was for Gonzalez to practice Wednesday. Barring a setback, Gonzalez was expected to be a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the New York Jets.

The Colts have homefield advantage clinched. While they may play everybody who is healthy through the whole game, they aren't going to rush back anybody less than 100%.
