Colts Continue to Adjust to Injury Toll

The Colts only held a brief walk-through practice on Saturday morning, much to the disappointment of many fans. But some of the player news that came out of that session was significant.

There wasn't much to report in regards to action from Saturday morning's brief practice, but some player news that came out of it was pretty significant.

Third-round draft pick Freddie Keiaho was on the sidelines with a left knee injury that will sideline him at least a few days. As expected, Kyle Killion (hamstring) and Dexter Reid (dislocated shoulder) were out along with rookie defensive lineman Tom Johnson (knee), linebacker Keith O'Neil (shoulder) and defensive end Gabe Nyenhuis (groin).

Amongst the other players sidelined this morning were Dwight Freeney (shoulder), Corey Simon (knee), Ryan Lilja (knee), Jason David (groin) and Ben Hartsock. Darrell Reid didn't practice, but we haven't been able to confirm any news regarding his absence from the field.

The good news though is that safety Mike Doss and defensive end Jonathan Welsh were both out practicing again. Welsh took the field for the first time since undergoing knee surgery last year. Doss, who was injured during the early days of camp, will be a huge addition from both a talent and even simply a numbers perspective. The Colts have been decimated by injuries at the safety position, and just lost Dexter Reid with a dislocated shoulder. Reid will likely miss the rest of the preseason but is hoping to be back in time for the Colts' opener against the Giants. Both Bob Sanders and Chris Laskowski aren't expected to be far behind, with both likely to practice this week barring any setbacks.

ColtPower will provide another training camp report following this evening's practice with our usual Insiders notes describing the most important information and memorable moments from the session.
