The headline of the Colts’ injury report on Wednesday was Andrew Luck’s return to practice, but there was more encouraging news as well.
However, there were a couple of other important takeaways from Wednesday’s injury report.
The Colts are continuing to get healthier and healthier each week, and that was proven again today.
Center Ryan Kelly was a full participant on Wednesday as he continues his progress towards making his season debut on Sunday. His return is critical for the Colts as they lost their backup center Deyshawn Bond to a season-ending quad injury in their last game.
Rookie running back Marlon Mack has missed the last two games with a shoulder injury, but it looks like he’ll be available for this week’s game against the 49ers as he got a full practice session in on Wednesday.
