The Colts have lost one of their starting offensive linemen for the season.

Indianapolis put right tackle Gosder Cherilus on injured reserve Wednesday, the team said. He has missed the last two games with a groin ailment.

The 30-year-old Cherilus has been the Colts’ starter on the right side since joining the team in free agency in 2013. He played his first five NFL seasons with Detroit (2008-2012).

The club has started a pair of players in Cherilus’ place in the last two games, with Xavier Nixon getting the call in Week 16 and Jack Mewhort starting the season finale. Joe Reitz is listed as the first-team right tackle on the club’s online depth chart, but the Indianapolis Star suggests Reitz will start at right guard vs. Cincinnati.

To fill Cherilus’ spot on the roster, the Colts promoted guard David Arkin from the practice squad.
