Colts RB Josh Ferguson (hamstring) returned to practice Tuesday.

Ferguson has missed most of camp with a hamstring injury. In his absence, the Colts added ex-Chargers RB Branden Oliver and former Lion RB Tion Green to their backfield. With Marlon Mack (hamstring) sidelined a few weeks and rookie Nyheim Hines struggling, Ferguson's camp reps can go a long way to solidifying his place on Indy's roster. Jordan Wilkins, Robert Turbin (four-game suspension), and Christine Michael round out the rest of the club's backfield.

Andrew Luck completed 6-of-9 passes for 64 yards in Thursday’s preseason opener versus the Seahawks.

Luck went 5-of-7 for 55 yards on the Colts' opening drive, even taking a hit at one point when scrambling for a first down on third-and-short. HC Frank Reich took a more vanilla approach with Indy's offensive scheme Thursday, but Luck ultimately looked his normal form in his first game action in 18 months. If Luck continues to look healthy without any setbacks, both he and T.Y. Hilton's ADP's are sure to skyrocket over the next three weeks.

Marlon Mack exited the Colts' preseason opener with a hamstring injury.

The extent is currently unknown, but hamstring injuries are always worth monitoring throughout the preseason once they occur. As expected, Mack started the game with Andrew Luck and the first-string offense, receiving a flip from Luck on the Colts' very first play. Robert Turbin came in the game once Mack exited.

Colts owner Jim Irsay said he could see Marlon Mack "approaching 1,500 yards."

Colts used a fourth and fifth-round pick on promising rookies Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins, but Irsay unsurprisingly touted Mack among Indianapolis' backs. "I think Mack has a chance to be a special guy this year," he said. "16-20 touches on the ground [per game] and I could see him approaching 1,500 yards [this season]. He is just better than you think he is every time you watch him." There's no denying Mack's explosiveness, but Irsay must've missed when the 2017 fourth-round pick was buried at or behind the line of scrimmage on 33% of his rushing attempts, second-most in the league. Mack will undoubtedly open Week 1 as Indy's starter but will need to improve upon his 3.8 YPC from last season if he hopes to stave off Hines and Wilkins.

Andrew Luck went 19-of-22, including 12-of-14 in 11-on-11 situations, in the Colts' first full-padded practice Sunday.

It's not exactly a regular season game, but Colts beat writers raved throughout the evening as Luck returned to form. It was his first full-padded practice since the end of the 2016 season. Luck reportedly hit T.Y. Hilton in stride for two gains of 30-plus yards and had a touchdown pass dropped by Jack Doyle. If Luck continues to progress and takes the field in Indy's preseason opener, it will be his first game action in 19 months.

Free agent CB Bashaud Breeland is visiting the Colts on Thursday.

It is the second time he has visited the Colts. Breeland appeared close to signing with the Chiefs yesterday -- he was spotted watching practice -- but the two sides obviously could not work out a deal. The Colts need as much help in the secondary as anyone.

Eagles signed WR Kamar Aiken, formerly of the Colts, to a one-year contract.

Aiken led the Ravens with 944 receiving yards in 2015, but hasn't done much since. He was practically invisible last year, nabbing just 15-of-43 targets for 133 yards and no touchdowns over 15 appearances. The 29-year-old is likely just a camp body.

Free agent S Shamarko Thomas will work out for the Colts on Wednesday.

Indy's secondary remains vulnerable, though Thomas, who attended Syracuse at the same time as Rotoworld writer Jesse Pantuosco, is unlikely to be a difference-maker. He barely played in Buffalo last year (he logged just six defensive snaps) and has mostly been utilized as a backup/special teamer since arriving as a fourth-round pick in 2013.
Jul 25 - 9:26 AM

Free agent CB Bashaud Breeland has visits scheduled with the Colts and Browns this week.

That's in addition to his visits with the Raiders and Chiefs the past 2-3 days. This is the second time the Colts have checked in on Breeland; they also had him in for a visit in May. Breeland had a $24 million deal voided by the Panthers in March after he injured his foot. Breeland is a top player left on the market. There's no question he can play. He just needs to prove healthy.

Virginia Tech CB Adonis Alexander visited with the Jets.

The Saints, Colts, and Kansas City also met with him. It confirms Alexander's league wide interest after 26 teams attended his Pro Day. Alexander (6'2/195) has starting traits but was suspended multiple times at Virginia Tech and his measurables (4.6 forty) would have ranked at the bottom of this year's class. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline gives Alexander a third-round supplemental grade.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport believes the Cardinals' trade for CB Jamar Taylor takes them out of the running for free agent CB Bashaud Breeland.

Breeland visited Arizona on Thursday but the Cardinals have since filled their cornerback void by adding Taylor in a trade with Cleveland. Rapoport suspects Breeland will land with the Colts, who he visited earlier this week. However, the signing may have to wait until Breeland is fully healthy. The former Redskin is still working back from a foot injury he suffered while on vacation in the Dominican Republic two months ago.

Free agent CB Bashaud Breeland is visiting the Colts on Wednesday.

He'll visit the Cardinals on Thursday if he makes it out of Indy. Breeland inked a three-year, $24 million deal with the Panthers in March but needed a skin graft after cutting his foot on vacation, and the deal was voided after a failed physical. The Colts are in seriously dire need of corner help.
May 16 - 1:14 PM

Free agent RB Terrance West visited the Colts on Tuesday.

West visited the Eagles last week, which was the first we had heard of him since the start of free agency. The Colts drafted a pair of running backs in Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins but still have one of the league's most unproven backfields.
May 15 - 4:37 PM

Colts released CB Kenneth Acker.

Signing in April, it was a short stay for the former 49ers and Chiefs corner. He should latch on somewhere else. The Colts signed S Michael Cirino in a corresponding move.
May 15 - 10:23 AM

Free agent S Kenny Vaccaro is meeting with the Colts on Monday.

Tre Boston is also meeting with the Colts on Monday. The safety market has easily been the quietest since free agency opened in March, so it makes sense for the Colts to go bargain shopping. Along with Vaccaro and Boston, Eric Reid remains available.
May 14 - 9:34 AM

Free agent S Tre Boston is visiting the Colts on Monday.

Stuck in a safety market moving at a glacial pace, this is the first concrete interest Boston has generated this offseason. Boston was solid across 16 games for the Chargers last year, but they are ready to move on after drafting Derwin James in the first round.

Colts HC Frank Reich said RB Nyheim Hines' pass-catching skills are "very impressive".

Reich also said Hines' intelligence was evident. Colts have already confirmed Hines will play both running back and slot receiver to best utilize his 4.38 40-speed. He should be given an opportunity in camp to compete with Marlon Mack, Jordan Wilkins, and Robert Turbin for early-down carries. Despite being in a committee, Hines is likely to have value in PPR leagues immediately.
May 12 - 12:32 PM

Colts HC Frank Reich said Andrew Luck still isn't throwing the football.

Reich said everything is going to plan and Luck is doing "exceptionally well." It's not a surprise he's coming along slowly — GM Chris Ballard said Luck wouldn't throw until training camp — but it remains startling that Luck hasn't thrown a live pass since Jan. 1, 2017, which was 496 days ago. He turns 29 in September.
May 12 - 11:29 AM

Colts waived WR DeAndre Smelter.

The Colts cut him to make room for Kasen Williams. Smelter lasted just four months in Indy after signing a futures deal in January. He's logged just 54 NFL snaps since arriving as a fourth-round pick in 2015.
May 11 - 1:35 PM

49ers signed G/C Mike Person, formerly of the Colts.

The 30-year-old (next month) started four of the Colts' final five games at center last season, receiving plus marks from Pro Football Focus for his pass protection. Person will try to earn an interior reserve spot this summer.
