Injuries: Ryan Kelly on crutches after Colts practice

Print

The Indianapolis Colts head into the preseason as a banged-up operation.

While quarterback Andrew Luck and his on-the-mend shoulder loom as a raging question mark for Week 1, plenty of teammates are dealing with injuries of their own.

Phillip Dorsett missed his fourth consecutive practice on Thursday with a hamstring injury, putting a critical camp on hold for the third-year receiver, per multiple reports.

Meanwhile, reliable second-year center Ryan Kelly left the practice field with an unknown injury. Longtime Colts beat writer Mike Chappell reported the pivot was later "spotted on crutches." Kelly is expected to miss a few weeks, according to a report from WTTV-TV.

Also for the Colts, heavily touted rookie running back Marlon Mack missed another session due to a shoulder injury, while linebacker Jon Bostic is out until next week after having a plate inserted into his fractured finger, per Stephen Holder of The Indianapolis Star.

Few teams in August have been heavier swarmed by the injury bug. Don't expect to see any of these players suit up when the Colts host the Lions on Sunday night.
