Colts Receive Encouraging Injury Updates on Henry Anderson and Clayton Geathers
According to head coach Chuck Pagano, the Indianapolis Colts have received encouraging injury news on safety Clayton Geathers and defensive lineman Henry Anderson respectively.
Regarding Geathers’ recovery from a broken foot, Pagano said the team is going to start ramping up his on-the-field activities after receiving positive reports from the doctors:
"“He’s doing well, we just saw the docs,” said Pagano on Geathers Thursday. “Did a re-check and everything looks good, so they are going to ramp up his rehab and he’ll start to do a little more from a field activity type of stuff, but he’s doing good.”"
Meanwhile, the Colts could be “really close” to activating Anderson from the team’s preseason PUP–as he rehabilitates from a torn ACL, making him eligible to participate in practice and on-the-field activities:
"“Yeah, he had a re-check as well, and he’s doing really good, so I think we’re close,” said Pagano on Anderson’s potential return. “We’re really close. We’ve just got to make a decision. You know when we want to do it, and I think basically the doctors have said when you guys feel good about it.”“We can do that and get him off PUP and get him going again.”"
Overall, it’s great news for Colts fans to hear to say the least, as both Geathers and Anderson are projected to start if fully healthy and should become key young players for this year’s defense.
