Reitz (back) did not practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Reitz's absence from practice is likely just precautionary, as while he had suffered a back injury late in the preseason, he did play every snap in Week 1. His status for the team's Week 2 matchup with the Broncos will become more clear based on his participation over the next couple of practices.

Reitz suffered a high-ankle sprain in Thursday's preseason game, the Indianapolis Star reports.

Indianapolis already has some weaknesses on the interior offensive line, so losing a key backup for a few weeks won't help.

Colts re-signed OG Joe Reitz to a one-year, $1.431 million contract.

Reitz was a restricted free agent. Reitz appeared in 14 games last season, and has made 20 starts over the past three years. Reitz can start in a pinch, but is ticketed for a reserve role.

Reserve Colts OG Joe Reitz has been diagnosed with a concussion.

Reitz started in Week 14, but was limited to 13 snaps against the Texans. He should be considered day to day.

Colts re-signed exclusive rights free agent OG Joe Reitz.

Reitz started eight games at left guard last season, but was an adventure both as a run blocker and pass protector. Reitz will face competition in the form of FA signee Donald Thomas or a draft pick. Ideally for Indy, he'd lose. Jeff Linkenbach is another (bad) option. Thomas may supplant Mike McGlynn at right guard.

Colts LG Joe Reitz (concussion) has been ruled out for the Wild Card Round.

Reitz graded out negatively as both a run and pass blocker this regular season by Pro Football Focus. Of course, backup Jeff Linkenbach was even worse. It's a concerning loss because Haloti Ngata often lines up over the opposing left guard. As it was all year, line play will be a weakness for Indy in the playoffs.

Colts LG Joe Reitz did not return after sustaining a head injury in Week 17.

He may have to go through the NFL's testing protocol. Reitz also left the Week 13 game with a head injury, appearing dazed while being carted off the field. Backup Jeff Linkenbach would be a liability if forced to start at Baltimore on Sunday.

Reitz went down early in the first quarter and appeared dazed as he was carted off the field. Consider him doubtful to return. Jeff Linkenbach has come on at left guard.
