Colts center Khaled Holmes could miss 'a few weeks'

Thursday night the Indianapolis Colts began their 2014 preseason with a game against the New York Jets, and in the opening series of that game, they had another injury scare across the offensive line. After a short run by running back Trent Richardson, starting center Khaled Holmes limped to the sidelines and did not return to the game.

According to a report from the Indianapolis Star, although the injury is being considered a sprain, Holmes could be in danger of missing the beginning of the regular season.

The body count kept rising, as it has all through training camp, in the Colts’ preseason opener Thursday. The latest word on starting center Khaled Holmes’ health was that it appears to be a sprain, but one that will likely cost Holmes time in the lineup.

It’s unclear how long he’ll be out, but it’s possible he could miss a few weeks of action.

The Colts really do not need anymore bad news on the offensive line, so hopefully they can land with the best case scenario with this one.

Although the team has a strong defensive unit, the lifeblood of this organization is the progression of Andrew Luck and the rest of the offense, most importantly the offensive line.
