Injuries: Ryan Kelly on crutches after Colts practice – NFL.com


The Indianapolis Colts head into the preseason as a banged-up operation.

While quarterback Andrew Luck and his on-the-mend shoulder loom as a raging question mark for Week 1, plenty of teammates are dealing with injuries of their own.

Phillip Dorsett missed his fourth consecutive practice on Thursday with a hamstring injury, putting a critical camp on hold for the third-year receiver, per multiple reports.

Meanwhile, reliable second-year center Ryan Kelly left the practice field with an unknown injury. Longtime Colts beat writer Mike Chappell reported the pivot was later “spotted on crutches.”

Also for the Colts, heavily touted rookie running back Marlon Mack missed another session due to a shoulder injury, while linebacker Jon Bostic is out until next week after having a plate inserted into his fractured finger, per Stephen Holder of The Indianapolis Star.

Few teams in August have been heavier swarmed by the injury bug. Don’t expect to see any of these players suit up when the Colts host the Lions on Sunday night.

Other injuries we’re tracking on this Thursday — a day stuffed with no less than seven preseason affairs up ahead:

1. Updating our story from Wednesday night, Panthers second-year defensive tackle Vernon Butler is believed to have suffered a knee sprain in Wednesday’s 27-17 win over the Texans, per NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

2. Slow start for Titans running back DeMarco Murray, who sat out his eighth straight practice with a hamstring injury, per the Tennessean.

3. Redskins outside linebacker Junior Galette is dealing with a hamstring injury, but the team isn’t concerned that it will be an issue, per ESPN.
