Two more players weren't able to practice on Saturday in Terre Haute at the Colts' training camp.
The latest additions on Saturday were safety Joseph Jefferson and linebacker Kendyll Pope. Cornerback Donald Strickland was scheduled for an MRI to determine the extent of a hamstring injury that ended his Friday practices early. Jason David stepped up to work with the first team in his absence and took full advantage, making an athletic interception.
DT Montae Reagor and safety Mike Doss are struggling with groin injuries, with Reagor's reportedly just slightly more serious than Doss'.
The rest that sat out practice haven't put on the pads yet since the Colts opened camp on Thursday: offensive guard Dylan Gandy (foot), defensive tackle Josh Williams (thigh), safety Brandon Lynch (foot), rookie linebacker Tyjuan Hagler (sports hernia) and cornerback Von Hutchins (foot).
On a better note, defensive Robert Mathis practiced on Friday after missing Thursday's workouts.
The team is leaving on Tuesday for Japan on Tuesday to play in next Saturday's Tokyo Bowl, but at least a handful will be left behind. Freeney, Williams, Hutchins and Gandy are unlikely to make the trip with 1-2 others on the bubble. Head coach Tony Dungy said that they will make better progress in rehabilitating their injuries if they have the proper machines and care during the interim rather than making the trip with the team.
