Colts Gearing Up For Indy 500 Weekend

Intro: Each week, will compile the best Tweets/Instagrams from players throughout the week. Here’s a look at this week’s posts.





INDIANAPOLIS – What did the Colts players have to say this week after concluding Week One of OTAs?

Colts Ownership was out in the Bay Area earlier this week for the NFL's Spring Meetings. While the extra point news was the major headliner from the meetings, it sounds like at least one team will be in Los Angeles by the 2017 season. Back in Indianapolis, the Colts will have some representation at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway this weekend with several players either attending the race, or taking part in activities at IMS.

The Colts started OTAs this past week with three of their 10 sessions. Werner did not participate in the team portion on Wednesday due to injury. Just like the wide receiver group on the offensive side of the ball, the outside linebacker position will have ample, ample depth to decipher through this offseason.

Slightly geeked!!! — Nate Irving (@jussaynate) May 21, 2015

One player who likely won't participate in the Colts offseason program is Irving. He tore his ACL midway through last season so his timetable is a bit longer than other rehab guys. When Irving is healthy though, he's certainly got to be in the mix at inside linebacker, as a guy who has a history of excelling against the run.

With some injuries at the outside linebacker position to start OTAs, Trent Cole and Jonathan Newsome were the edge rushers to kick things off. Cole is definitely going to be a key guy for the Colts defense in 2015. He has played in a 3-4 defense now for the past couple of years and feels this scheme has allowed him to still be productive after a decade in the NFL.
