Fans and coaches of the Indianapolis Colts will have their fingers crossed this season.
As 2014 training camp begins, the Colts are looked upon as one of the top teams in their conference. Indianapolis has the ability to be one of the best teams in the NFL, but are still hoping for several players to return to form, following season-ending injuries in 2013. The Colts are loaded, but have also proved to be injury-prone.
Last season, the Indianapolis Colts lost nearly 20 players to season-ending injuries. Without their starting top two running backs, a starting tight end, and a future Hall-of-Fame wide receiver, the Colts still took the AFC South title. Indianapolis also won a postseason game, and finished the 2013 season with a second consecutive 11-5 record.
Indianapolis will be expecting a lot from returning injured players on both sides of the ball. For all that is expected from this team in 2014, the possibility could persuade or prevent an unsuspecting fall. Injuries to the offense and defense could cost this team more than most people think. If the Colts aren’t coming out healthy this season, then the Colts could crumble.
