The Indianapolis Colts began OTAs yesterday, but today is the first time the media is able to see the team practice. As such, we have some news coming out of today’s practice right away: second round pick Quincy Wilson has a walking boot on his right foot.
That’s not good, especially for a team that’s been plagued by injuries year after year. While we don’t know the severity or any details about this injury, it probably won’t impact his availability for the season - but it’s still not a great sign to have the second round cornerback already missing practice time. It means that he’ll be missing some valuable reps on the field, even though it probably isn’t a huge issue beyond that.
The Colts’ secondary will have quite a contingent on the sidelines for today’s OTA practice, however, as safeties Malik Hooker and Clayton Geathers both won’t be participating. We knew about both of those injuries already, however, and the Colts selected Hooker in the first round despite knowing that he probably won’t be available until training camp. But it means that on the sidelines are three of the four projected starters in the secondary, including the Colts’ first two picks in this year’s NFL Draft.
Hopefully it’s nothing serious with Quincy Wilson, but either way I can almost already hear Colts fans saying, “here we go again” with the injury situation. Hopefully we’ll get an update on Wilson later today.
