The Indianapolis Colts will be missing two starters Sunday when they face the Cincinnati. Bengals. The team has already departed for the Queen City, but they did so without starting left guard Hugh Thornton and starting cornerback Greg Toler. Backup linebacker Kavell Conner also stayed home.

Thornton had been considered questionable with a neck injury. Toler has missed five straight games with a groin injury while the Colts have gone just 3-2 in those contests. Conner is out with an ankle injury.

With Thorton out, it will be the second starting guard the Colts have lost. Jeff Linkenbach is dealing with a quad injury and has a;ready been ruled-out for Sunday. The Bengals defensive line has to be licking its chops right now.
