Colts' Training Camp starts this week in Westfield, and we know that Andrew Luck will be "good to go". But, what about the rest of the injured Colts? (Yes, there are actually other key Colts' players trying to get back on the field after surgeries.)
Both of Indy's projected starting safeties - the oft-injured Clayton Geathers as well as last year's first-rounder Malik Hooker - are trying to get back on the field in time for Week 1, but will start Camp on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list:
As forecast by Chris Ballard on Friday, the #Colts have placed safeties Clayton Geathers and Malik Hooker and OL Jeremy Vujnovich on PUP to open training camp. All three players can be activated at any time before the start of the regular season.— George Bremer (@gmbremer) July 23, 2018
Hooker is expected to be back around the middle of next month, whereas the timetable for Geathers, who had an offseason knee procedure, is more vague.
The only other player who will start Camp on the PUP list is veteran guard Jeremy Vujnovich. Despite starting all sixteen games last season, Vujnovich will have to compete just to make the roster after the Colts spent the offseason boosting their depth at the interior line positions.
RB Marlon Mack, part of Hooker's rookie class last season, has been cleared to start practicing, but will wear a brace to protect his shoulder.
