Both Paye and Woods have been contributors for their team throughout the season.
Per Pro Football Focus, Paye has been Indy’s highest-graded defensive end this season, earning a 75.1 defensive mark through 10 weeks. On the season, Paye has racked up four sacks, six tackles for loss, and 24 combined tackles. The former first-round pick thrives against the run, grading out as the 12th-best run defender at his position per PFF.
With Paye out of the lineup for Indianapolis, the Colts will likely roll with Yannick Ngakoue and Dayo Odeyingbo as their starting defensive ends.
On the offensive side of the ball, Woods is an exciting prospect at the tight end position. The Colts employ a three-headed monster at TE, with Woods serving as the most explosive of the bunch. He’s recorded seven catches for 79 yards and three touchdowns during his rookie campaign.
In Philly, the Eagles will be without a handful of key starters this weekend as well. Both Dallas Goedert and Avonte Maddox have been placed on injured reserve over the past week. A handful of starters were listed on this week’s injury report, but the team has yet to rule any of them out for Sunday.
