Happy Birthday, Tamba Hali.
The Indianapolis Colts left tackle, Anthony Castonzo, is expected to miss the Kansas City Chiefs game, the Indy Star reports. Castonzo injured his ankle in the Monday Night Football game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
When Castonzo went down, rookie G Ben Ijalana stepped into his place but he was also injured and placed on IR this week so he's out for the year.
Ryan Diem, the team's right tackle since 2003, started the season at right guard but his status for Sunday is uncertain with an ankle injury.
The Colts starting left tackle is unclear right now -- possibly OT Jeff Linkenbach (and, no, I don't know who he is).
The Chiefs pass rush has come mainly from Tamba Hali but this may be a good opportunity for a few others to get it going against a makeshift Colts offensive line.
