Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. cleared concussion protocol but running back Zack Moss has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the visiting Las Vegas Raiders.

Head coach Shane Steichen confirmed on Friday that the Colts (8-7) won’t have Moss (forearm) but that Pittman “should be ready to roll.”

Pittman, who also cleared protocol last week before having a relapse, and Moss were both injured in a Dec. 16 win against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Both sat out last Sunday’s 29-10 defeat at Atlanta.

Pittman, 26, leads the Colts with 99 receptions and 1,062 receiving yards and has four touchdown catches in 14 games (13 starts) this season.

Moss, 26, leads Indianapolis with 764 rushing yards and shares the team lead with five rushing touchdowns. He also has 27 catches for 192 yards and two scores in 13 games (eight starts).

Jonathan Taylor returned to the backfield last week and rushed for 43 yards and a touchdown in the loss to the Falcons. He has 457 rushing yards and five TDs in eight games (five starts), along with 16 catches for 137 yards and a touchdown in 2023.
