The Colts will begin training camp this week without left tackle Eric Fisher.
That was always expected but is all but official after he was placed on the physically unable to perform list Sunday. The two-time Pro Bowler is still recovering from a torn Achilles in January. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported in May that the former Chiefs standout might not be ready to play until October.
Fisher hasn't put a timeline on his return. The Colts believed in his 2021 availability enough to give him a one-year, $9.4 million contract this offseason.
