Indianapolis Colts trying out QB Chad Kelly at rookie camp

Sports
May 3 (UPI) -- The Indianapolis Colts invited former Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly to rookie minicamp. Indianapolis is having rookie camp from Friday through Sunday. Kelly was at the camp Friday on a tryout basis. Kelly -- the nephew of Hall of Famer Jim Kelly -- was a seventh-round pick by the Denver Broncos in the 2017 NFL Draft. He didn't take a snap during his rookie campaign, but had a successful 2018 preseason. Kelly completed 66.7 percent of his throws for 466 yards, three scores and two touchdowns in four preseason appearances. He appeared in one regular season game last year for the Broncos, taking a knee for a one-yard loss. The Broncos released Kelly after he was arrested for trespassing in October. The 25-year-old completed 63.9 percent of his throws for 6,858 yards, 50 tou...

Indianapolis Colts' Andrew Luck admits injuring shoulder while snowboarding

Sports
Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck admitted that the second shoulder injury he sustained occurred while snowboarding during the 2015-16 offseason. Luck told the NFL Network that he sprained the AC joint in his throwing shoulder in a snowboarding accident in Colorado. The injury, the 28-year-old said, came after -- and was separate from -- the torn labrum he sustained early in the 2015 season. The labrum tear resulted in surgery and cost Luck all of the 2017 season. Luck said he immediately told the Colts about the snowboarding injury. "This was after the initial injury," Luck said, via the NFL Network. "I went back, rehabbed it with the Colts. I've had a bunch of AC sprains, both left and right shoulder, and resolved that issue. But the labrum has been my issue, was my issue,...

Rookie wide receiver Deon Cain of the Indianapolis Colts will miss the 2018 season because of a torn ACL sustained during Thursday night's preseason opener against the Seattle Seahawks.

The 6-foot-2, 202-pound Cain was a sixth-round pick (185th overall) by the Colts out of Clemson and was expected to make a contribution this season after impressing during training camp. The 22-year-old Cain, whose draft stock slipped because of off-the-field issues, was injured after making the first catch of his initial professional game. Cain was suspended by Clemson for the 2015 Orange Bowl and the 2016 College Football Playoff National Championship Game for failing a drug test. In the 2016-17 season, Cain returned and played...

Indianapolis Colts left tackle Anthony Castonzo re-injured his ailing hamstring a few days after being activated from the non-football injury list. Colts head coach Frank Reich told reporters on Sunday that Castonzo "will miss a little bit of time," via the Indianapolis Star. Recent signee J'Marcus Webb likely will see additional snaps with the first-team offense in the preseason in the absence of the 29-year-old Castonzo, who was activated from the non-football injury list on Wednesday. Castonzo is tentatively expected to be ready for the Colts' season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sept. 9. A healthy Castonzo also is expected to aid in the development of first-round pick Quenton Nelson and second-round selection Braden Smith. Let's block ads! (Why?) Sports News - UPI.c...
