INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianapolis Colts linebacker Pat Angerer is recovering from two surgeries to his foot. He has been at the Colts' OTA practices but has not been participating.
Angerer was hurt in the team's opening preseason game last year and had surgery, which sidelined him for the remainder of the preseason and the first five games of the regular season. He played in pain the remainder of the year and had a second surgery in January.
"It's hard not to (push) coming back too soon from the foot injury]. You are just bored. But I ramped it up a big and (I'm) feeling good. I'll get an MRI here sometime. I don't know. (We'll) figure it out and see. It feels better now than it did all last year," Angerer said.
The Colts still don't know when outside linebacker Josh McNary will be made available to begin practicing with the team. McNary played at Army and is still serving in the military. He was expected to finish his final tour sometime this month. As of now though, Indy officials must wait until McNary has been given the green light by Army officials before he can join the team.
The team added linebacker Caesar Rayford and waived linebacker Jake Killeen. Rayford (6-7, 265) spent the last three seasons with the Utah Blaze of the Arena Football League. He played collegiately at the University of Washington. Rayford also played professionally with the AFL's Spokane Shock and the CFL's British Columbia Lions.
The Colts hired Shawn Terlecky as the team's new assistant to the head coach. Terlecky spent the last three seasons as a defensive quality control coach working with linebackers at Louisiana State. He was a former graduate assistant under Chuck Pagano at North Carolina.
--Running backs coach David Walker is happy with the Colts' 1-2 punch pf Vick Ballard and Donald Brown. The jury is still out on whether Delone Carter or rookie Kerwynn Williams will be the team's No. 3 running back.
"We've got a good group [of running backs. We've got to continue to develop the third guy because just like last year and the season before, at some spot, whoever is third on our depth chart is going to be starting a football games and helping us to win."
