The Indianapolis Colts will be without offensive lineman Matt Pryor on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles. 

Matt Pryor is reportedly in the hospital being treated for an illness, according to NFL Network's James Palmer. 

Pryor has been serving as a backup to starting guard Will Fries after he lost his starting role earlier in the season. Prior to that, he made 15 starts over the last three seasons and has appeared in 54 games since 2019.

The NFL community is hoping that this illness is nothing serious.

"Jesus I hope he will be okay," one tweet read.

"Hope he gets better," another tweet read.

Dennis Kelly will likely start in place of both Smith and Pryor since they're not able to go. 

The Colts will take on the Eagles at 1 p.m. ET.
