Donte Moncrief Expected To Return To Practice On Wednesday

Intro: After the most injured week of the 2016 season, the Colts are expected to have several guys who missed Sunday’s win over the Titans back on the field for Wednesday’s practice. Who do the Colts believe will practice Wednesday?


INDIANAPOLIS – For the first time since Week Two of the regular season, the Colts are expected to have Donte Moncrief back on the practice field.

On his radio show Monday night, Chuck Pagano said there's a "good chance" Moncrief will be practicing when the Colts reconvene for work on Wednesday.

"Moncrief has a good chance to get back into the swing of things," Pagano said on Monday night. "I think he will get on the field on Wednesday in a limited capacity."

A fractured scapula has sidelined Moncrief since Week Two. Moncrief played nine snaps in that Week Two loss versus the Broncos when a hit from Pro Bowl safety T.J. Ward took the third-year receiver out of the game.

The original timetable for Moncrief was supposed to keep him out four-to-six weeks. This is the sixth week of his recovery.

Besides Moncrief, the Colts could also see a few other guys returning to practice.

Pagano said he thinks defensive linemen Henry Anderson (knee) and Zach Kerr (ankle) will be working on Wednesday.

Jacoby Brissett (hamstring) is also "trending in the right direction" according to Pagano.

"We might get (Dorsett) back out there Wednesday," Pagano said on the show.

In Sunday's win over the Titans, the Colts were without Moncrief, Anderson, Kerr, Dorsett, Curt Maggitt (ankle), Jack Mewhort (tricep) and Dwayne Allen (ankle).

It does appear the Colts will get a few of those guys back to practice this week with the team having two more games before their bye.

"It looks like we are going to get a little bit healthier," Pagano said, "and get some guys back at a much needed time."
