Chuck Pagano (kind of) updates some injury situations for Colts

NFL: Preseason-Cincinnati Bengals at Indianapolis Colts Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Indianapolis Colts returned to the practice field today for their second day of OTAs, and today was the first time the media got the chance to watch practice. Afterward, head coach Chuck Pagano met with the media and updated a few injury concerns - well, he didn't really update them, but he talked about them.

The first question to Pagano was about wide receiver Phillip Dorsett, who left practice early with a trainer today.

"Yeah, I think they're looking at him," Pagano said. "I don't know the extent of it right now so until I meet with the docs, I haven't had a chance to talk with them yet. So I don't have any idea. I'm guessing a hamstring, when you lay out - he's running 100 miles per hour for that ball and stretched out for it and I'm guessing it's a hammy, hopefully it isn't too serious."

It makes sense for Pagano to have not had time to speak with the doctors after having practiced and then met with the media, so at this point it's just a hope that's it's nothing serious. The expectation is a hamstring, but it's just a situation where we'll have to wait and see. The Colts don't release an injury report for May practices and the media availability is limited, so we probably will have to wait a little longer for an answer.

The same is true with some of the offensive linemen who missed practice today. Hugh Thornton and Denzelle Good were both not working today, but Pagano wouldn't say anything other than that it's "just some rehab stuff." That's not very informative at all and it doesn't tell us what those injuries are, but at least it does confirm that both are sitting out due to injury situations as they recover from them. It doesn't appear as if either are too serious, but at this point it seems all of the information we're going to get is that they are rehabbing from some sort of injury or medical procedure and that's the reason they're not practicing.

The best news, though? Quarterback Andrew Luck doesn't have any limitations as he works in the offseason program. Pagano said the Colts will still be smart with him and monitor the situation to see if he needs a rest day or something like that, however, but right now he's feeling good and looking good.
