So far this training camp, a couple of Colts have been hurt or dealing with past injuries. The team is going to be extremely cautious with them and make sure they don’t get hurt any worse.
The Colts have some key players who are injured right now. Jabaal Sheard is already out a few weeks with a knee injury. We also found out today that Andrew Luck will miss at least a couple of practices this week because of his lingering calf injury.
Because of these injuries, and some other players who suffered injuries before, the team is being extremely cautious with its players. They don’t want any injury to linger and become worse. Because of that, they have decided to bring players along slowly.
They tried that with Luck, but he still feels pain in his calf. That is slightly concerning considering the strain has been lingering since OTA’s. They don’t want the same thing to happen to Jack Doyle or Eric Ebron, as both are coming off of offseason surgery and injuries.
If there is another injury that pops up, the Colts will be overly cautious with that as well. They can’t afford to have anyone go down with serious injury in training camp. The health of the team is the most important thing right now, and its’ the only thing that can slow down their success.
This team has very high expectations this season. In order to meet those expectations, they have to be healthy and ready to go. If they aren’t healthy, they won’t be playing in the Super Bowl in February. It’s pretty simple.
