Mt 28:17 KAI IDONTES AUTON PROSEKUNHSAN,hOI DE EDISTASAN

Are there grammatical reasons that hOI is generally translated as "some"
rather that as "they"?

Someone from another list suggested that DE might be considered as
switching subjects, but it seems more reasonable to me to understand DE in
this verse as presenting the doubt in contrast to the worshiping posture.

Thanks,
