Colts send prayers to Peterson; Landry out

October, 12, 2013
INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano took time during the opening of his media session on Saturday afternoon to deliver a message to Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson.

“On behalf of our organization and our team and our players and coaches and everybody, we want to let Adrian Peterson know that he and his family are in our thoughts and prayers,” Pagano said.

Peterson’s 2-year-old son died Friday from injuries sustained during an alleged aggravated assault in South Dakota on Wednesday.

As far as on the field goes, the Colts are slowly getting some of their injured players back.

Fullback Stanley Havili (ankle) and defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois (groin) will be back in the lineup when they play the San Diego Chargers on Monday.

The same can’t be said about safety LaRon Landry.

Landry will miss his fourth straight game with a high ankle sprain. He started the week as being day-to-day but it became pretty obvious he wouldn’t be ready because he didn’t practice this week. Delano Howell will continue to start for Landry.
