NFL suspended Colts RB Robert Turbin four games for violating the league’s policy on PEDs.

Turbin broke the news himself, issuing an apology on his Twitter account. The 28-year-old wouldn’t say what he tested positive for but acknowledged that he made a mistake. "It absolutely kills me that I allowed this to happen," he said. "I will continue to work diligently on correcting my error, assuring that this will never happen again." Turbin broke out for a career-high eight touchdowns in 2016 but a dislocated elbow limited him to just six games last season. After he serves his suspension, Turbin will return to a committee role alongside Marlon Mack, Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins in Indianapolis.

Andrew Luck said his surgically-repaired shoulder remains pain-free.

Luck has ramped up his rehab in recent weeks, something which led to pain in his shoulder and ultimately him being shut down last year. He is not having the same issues this time around, and he even plans to have a throwing session with the Colts' receivers prior to training camp. Skepticism is understandable considering what happened last year, but Luck looks to be right on track.

Colts signed second-round OG Braden Smith to a four-year contract.

Smith was the 37th overall pick in the draft after they chose fellow lineman Quenton Nelson at No. 6 overall. He should compete for snaps right away at right guard, with Nelson taking over at left guard. Jack Mewhort will be Smith's main competition this summer as Indy looks to protect Andrew Luck better.

Colts LB Anthony Walker said he has cleared the concussion protocol.

He tweeted, "All Clear" with a thumbs-up emoji on Friday. Walker suffered the injury at last week's minicamp. The Northwestern alum logged 22 tackles over 115 defensive snaps as a rookie in 2017.

45-year-old Colts K Adam Vinatieri says he has no plans to retire in the near future.

"I love it as much today as I had when I started 23 years ago," Vinatieri said. "I’m not looking to hang them up anytime soon. ... I guess I’ll take these one year at a time and see where it ends up." Headed into his 23rd year in the league, Vinatieri remained an 85.3 percent field goal kicker last season and is approaching several league records.

Indy Star's Stephen Holder writes Eric Ebron "has been among the more impressive Colts" during the offseason program.

Ebron has been used all over the formation by new coach Frank Reich. "He’s really smart," Reich said. "And that’s really good because you want to use a guy with the versatility that he has and move him around and call all kinds of things with him." Even with Jack Doyle atop the depth chart, Ebron should see his fair share of targets in an offense desperate for playmakers behind T.Y. Hilton. He is a fine late-round stab in deeper leagues.

1070 The Fan's Kevin Bowen reports Colts LB Tyrell Adams saw reps with the first-team defense during the offseason program.

Adams worked at the SAM spot in Indy's new 4-3 scheme, ahead of 2016 fourth-rounder Antonio Morrison. Adams made similar noise with the Raiders last year before playing just 99 snaps on defense, and second-round LB Darius Leonard has been sidelined by a hamstring injury. Still, it looks like Adams has a shot on a wide-open depth chart.

Andrew Luck said the "pain" in his surgically-repaired shoulder is "gone."

"And it’s going to stay that way," the quarterback added. "My body doesn’t revolt, in a sense, to new things I ask." Luck finally threw a football in front of reporters and cameras last week, and he seems much more confident about his health than he was at this time last year. MMQB's Albert Breer reports the Colts will limit Luck in camp, giving him days off and monitoring his reps, but there is finally light at the end of the tunnel.

Colts SS Clayton Geathers is questionable for training camp.

Geathers hasn't practiced this offseason with an undisclosed injury. He missed 11 games with a neck issue last year, so it's possible he's dealing with a setback. The Colts are hoping to have Geathers and Malik Hooker (knee) for the start of camp.

Colts FS Malik Hooker (knee) has a chance to be cleared for training camp.

Hooker is eight months removed from ACL surgery. He did some off-field work at OTAs but has been without a concrete timetable. Returning for the start of training camp would likely be a best-case scenario, though it sounds like Hooker may avoid the active/PUP list. Barring setbacks, Hooker should be ready for Week 1.

The Colts held Chester Rogers out of minicamp.

Rogers had his 2017 derailed by a hamstring issue. The missed time is a concern given his history of sort-tissue injuries, but he should be fine for training camp. The Colts have an open depth chart behind T.Y. Hilton, with Rogers, Ryan Grant, Deon Cain and Daurius Fountain all competing for reps.
Jun 16 - 10:14 AM

Colts DE John Simon has "hardly seen any starting reps" at minicamp.

Simon has struggled with his move to end this offseason. He doesn't look like a fit in the Colts' 4-3 scheme and isn't a lock for the final roster. Indy can save $3.3 million from cutting Simon.

Colts GM Chris Ballard hopes to have TE Erik Swoope (knee) back for training camp.

Swoope has been sidelined since August surgery. It's possible he'll open camp on the active/PUP list after an extended layoff. With Eric Ebron and Jack Doyle ahead of him, Swoope doesn't have a path to 2018 snaps.

The Indianapolis Star expects rookie Deon Cain to compete for a role in three-wide sets.

A minicamp standout, Cain has drawn raves for his red-zone skills. The Colts don't have any proven options behind T.Y. Hilton, with Chester Rogers and Ryan Grant ($5 million guaranteed) the favorites to open the year in three-wide sets. There's some depth chart climbing in front of Cain, but he could push for an early season role.
Jun 15 - 7:30 PM

Following this week's minicamp, Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star believes it's "clear" the Colts have "big designs" for rookie Nyheim Hines on offense.

Keefer added Hines was "among the most active players on offense" in spring practices, lining up at multiple positions, including the backfield, slot, out wide, and running the ball as well as catching it deep. Hines blazed a 4.38 forty at the Combine and was a do-it-all Swiss Army Knife at NC State. The Colts figure to come up with multiple ways to get the ball in his hands as much as possible, including as a returner. Hines is a late-round sleeper for those betting on pure talent.
