Earlier this week, new Colts receiver Darius Heyward-Bey suffered a sprained left knee. He was forced to miss most of the week’s practices with the injury, however, he found himself back on the field for Thursday’s afternoon practices.
Heyward-Bey said this, in an interview with ESPN’s Josina Anderson after not being able to fully complete the practice,
The trainers decided to hold me back because right now I am day-to-day. The training staff and I did a good job of communicating out there. We just decided to shut it down for the day and hopefully give it another try tomorrow. I felt good enough to go out there and give it a try, so far I just haven’t been able to go full-go yet. I did make it to a good amount of the first team period in 11-on-11 in pads. It is always good to get out there and do something.
Luckily for the team, Heyward-Bey’ MRI results were negative, and will be ready to go by the start of the season. The Colts will be looking to Heyward-Bey a lot, along side Reggie Wayne, and T.Y. Hilton.
