Colts second-round selection Tim Jennings won't be participating in the Indianapolis Colts' mini-camp this weekend. According to head coach Tony Dungy, Jennings recently had his ankle scoped. While the team didn't release any other details, Dungy made one thing clear.
"He will not participate in this camp," he said.
Another surprise announcement was that wide receiver Aaron Moorehead, who signed his contract tender as an unrestricted free agent this offseason, will miss roughly two months after having back surgery last week. The back injury apparently dates back to last season.
Safety Bob Sanders (bicep), Cato June (sports hernia/knee), cornerback Marlin Jackson (shoulder), defensive tackle
Vincent "Sweet Pea" Burns (knee), defensive end Jonathan Welsh (knee) and safety Mike Doss (shoulder) will also be spectators at the Colts mini-camp, which kicked off on Friday for rookies and veterans.
Backup quarterback Jim Sorgi is questionable and didn't see any action on Friday due to a sore shoulder. One of the Colts' rookie quarterbacks, David Koral out of UCLA, isn't working out with the team due to NFL rules that prohibit a player from attending mini-camp unless they have completed their spring semester. UCLA is still wrapping up their slate of classes and exams.
Offensive tackle Makoa Freitas (foot) was also absent. He is coming back from a serious foot injury that he sustained during the final 2005 preseason game. The injury required surgery that ended his season, but the Colts re-signed him as a restricted free agent.
