There are multiple players who have been held out of practice because of injuries. Several of those players are getting closer to returning according to reports.
The Colts have had to manage too many injuries to start camp. There have been several key players who have been nursing injuries, no one more notable than Andrew Luck. But even Luck seems to be getting closer to a return according to multiple reports.
Luck has started attending the end of practices, and now has even been sporting a red jersey. That could signify that he is getting closer to a return of working on the field. He hasn’t practiced since the very beginning of camp, so any progress with him is welcome news.
Rookie wide receiver Parris Campbell should be making his return to practice early this week. He has been battling a hamstring issue, which can linger. This is another player they are taking a very cautious approach with. They want him to be at full strength come week one.
Jack Doyle and Ben Banogu have already returned to practice. Doyle is one of the most versatile players on the offense, so him returning is big. Bangou is another rookie who has been sidelined for awhile. It’s good to see him back as well.
Ryan Kelly seems to be getting closer too, as he was seen hitting the sled. Having a healthy offensive line is key for this team. Kelly is the man in the middle who is the key to everything. He needs to be fully healthy before week one, and needs to play in at least one preseason game.
Having all of these guys back is great for the team. It would still be surprising to see Luck practice against the Browns when they come later this week, but if he does we will be there to see it.
