Injury concerns abound for the Colts as they take the practice field today. Unsurprisingly there is no Quincy Wilson, who saw very little playing time against Dallas before he suffered a knee injury that was viewed as not too serious. We will have to wait and see on that one.

Chester Rogers and Sean Spence continue to miss time, something neither can really afford. Rogers is in a tough competition for his spot in the wide receiver group and given his relatively limited experience, he needs all the reps he can get to demonstrate that he deserves to be in the starting lineup. He is out with a hamstring but needs to find his way back quickly.

Sean Spence looked solid in the first preseason game but showed very little the rest of the offseason. If he wants a spot on the 53-man roster he needs to be healthy and prove he deserves it during the remaining preseason games.

Additionally, Jack Mewhort is nowhere to be seen. The Colts offensive line has been pretty banged up already, and their depth is not good. This is likely precautionary, as George Bremer points out that he has been restricted throughout camp, but if he is not up to 100% by the beginning of the season, the most frequently run play might be called “run for your life.” Still no word yet on a timetable for Brian Schwenke’s return either.

On the positive news front, Donte Moncrief makes his return to the practice field after a very protracted absence due to a shoulder injury. He is wearing a non-contact jersey but will take reps with the team. Moncrief needs to get on the field and stay healthy to maximize on his contract year, and the Colts need him out there to provide a realistic number two receiver and benefit from coverage rolling to Hilton.

Lastly, Andrew Luck is still staying on top of his book club, and right now that’s about what we know about how things are going with him.

We will continue to provide updates as we get them.
