Indianapolis' left guard Reitz stays behind as Colts travel to Baltimore for playoff game

Left guard Joe Reitz did not travel with the Colts for Sunday's wild-card playoff game at Baltimore .

On Friday, coach Chuck Pagano said Reitz was out with a concussion. Everyone else, Pagano said, would play or was probable or questionable.

Reitz has already missed nine games because of knee and head injuries. He is likely to be replaced by Jeff Linkenbach. The only other player limited in Friday's practice was backup running back Delone Carter (ankle).

Three players and offensive coordinator Bruce Arians also were ill this week. But the players — linebacker Pat Angerer, defensive tackle Kellen Heard and offensive lineman Bradley Sowell — were full participants in Friday's practice. Arians is expected to call the plays as he has all season.
