INDIANAPOLIS (Dec. 31, 2014) – The Colts’ ever-changing offensive line will again be forced to evolve as the playoffs arrive.
On Wednesday afternoon offensive tackle Gosder Cherilus was placed on injured reserve, per a release from the team.
Cherilus started 13 games this season before missing the final three games with a shoulder injury.
Xavier Nixon will likely start in his place for the Colts’ AFC Wild Card game against the Bengals on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Injuries have not been something new to the offensive line since their have been ten different line combinations since the start of the season. With Cherilus out, the Colts signed offensive guard David Arkin from the practice squad to the active roster.
