The most notable injury to occur in Sunday’s practice for the Indianapolis Colts was to first round starting center Ryan Kelly, who sat out the second half of practice with his left shoulder wrapped.
Head coach Chuck Pagano said this morning that Kelly suffered a strained shoulder on Sunday and won’t practice today, so the Colts are listing him as day-to-day. That is keeping in line with their statement yesterday that the injury was nothing serious, and it sounds like Kelly will be back at some point soon - though that doesn’t mean he’ll be ready to go for this Sunday’s preseason opener.
This is certainly good news for the Colts, as it means their first round pick, starting center, and biggest offseason addition isn’t expected to miss extended time. Day-to-day with the Colts can still mean that a guy will miss several days, but it means it’s not a serious or long-term injury. There’s no reason for the Colts to rush Kelly back - as Pagano said, Kelly won’t practice today - but the good news is that he’ll be back soon. In the meantime, Pagano said Jonotthan Harrison will see the first-team reps at center, which is exactly what we saw yesterday in practice after Kelly went out.
There are a few other injury updates worth noting with the Colts. Wide receiver Marcus Leak has a quad strain, while safety Andrew Williamson (who was carted off to the locker room yesterday) is still being evaluated and will undergo an MRI this afternoon for a knee injury.
