INDIANAPOLIS –We know *the *injury to watch as the Colts begin Training Camp this coming weekend.

Yes, the rehab for Andrew Luck, and the loss of Clayton Geathers, will greatly impact how the Colts operate in 2017.

But there are a few other guys working their way back from injuries.

Here's a look at the injured Colts to keep an eye on when the Colts start practicing Sunday with an open session at Lucas Oil Stadium:

  • QB-Andrew Luck: When the Colts begin practicing on Sunday afternoon, Luck will be watching. But Luck has started the throwing portion of his right shoulder rehab. That's obviously a massive step in the right direction for Luck being ready Week One. Here's the latest on Luck.
  • LG-Jack Mewhort:During the team's offseason program, Mewhort was on a bit of a pitch count. Mewhort was recovering from a December 2016 knee injury (chondral defect), which ended his third NFL season four weeks early. Chris Ballard said on Monday that Mewhort will be ready to go for the start of Training Camp, with the Colts still ramping him up to full speed. It's a contract year for Mewhort.
  • C/OG-Brian Schwenke:We saw Schwenke miss the end of the offseason program with a right ankle injury. That injury is apparently significant enough to keep Schwenke out of the lineup for the start of Training Camp. Schwenke will open up camp on the physically unable to perform list.
  • WR-Jacoby Brissett:Nothing serious with Dorsett. A hamstring injury kept him off the field during the team's minicamp. Dorsett needs a healthy Training Camp as he fights for a depth spot at the receiver position.
  • DT-Hassan Ridgeway: The team's fourth-round pick from 2016 had shoulder surgery early in the spring and missed the offseason program. Chuck Pagano said at the end of minicamp that Ridgeway should be good to go for Training Camp. Ridgeway is expected to compete for a reserve role along the defensive line.
  • DE-Kendall Langford: Langford will also be on PUP to start Training Camp. After eight years of no missed time in the NFL, Langford fought a nagging knee injury all last year. Langford went on injured reserve in October. He sat out this spring and was hoping to be ready for the start of camp.
  • S-Clayton Geathers:Unlike the other three PUP names above, Geathers will definitely be on PUP when the Colts start the 2017 season. Chris Ballard said on Monday that the March neck surgery for Geathers will have [the physical safety sidelined until at least mid-October.

Just hours after Chris Ballard said Hooker would be full-go for Training Camp, the first-round pick tweaked his hamstring during a conditioning test. Hooker will now start camp on the PUP list, too. When the Colts drafted Hooker in April the expectation was for him to miss the offseason program and be ready for Training Camp. January surgery on Hooker's hip and labrum means we still have not seen him on an NFL practice field. It goes without saying how important it is for Hooker to heal quickly and get his first professional reps.

Other names that missed time late in the offseason program include: OG/OT-Denzelle Good and OLB-Akeem Ayers.
