Colts re-add kicker Shane Andrus as Vinatieri heals from hip surgery

Oh boy. Adam Vinatieri's status for training camp just got a whole lot more uncertain:

The move comes less than a week after veteran place-kicker Adam Vinatieri underwent surgery on his right hip. Although Vinatieri’s availability for training camp is uncertain, the team expects him to be ready for the start of the regular season.

Shane Andrus is a solid kicker who was in camp with the team in 2006 and 2007. So, it is not unusual to have him around in August. Still, signing him now while Vinatieri recovers from hip surgery suggests to me that we shall see very little of Adam V in training camp and pre-season.
