RTC: Adongo out for more success
By Mike Wells
Here's Thursday's Reading the Coverage:
-- Colts.com has a story on linebacker Daniel Adongo. Adongo is a former rugby player the Colts signed last season. He spent most of the season on the practice squad before being elevated to the active roster.
Adongo, 24, ended up playing 31 snaps on special teams last season.
"I planned my offseason as soon as we lost the [Patriots] game," Adongo told Colts.com. "I know as every great warrior, you need to put in work for the next battle, so the next battle is what's coming, the next season. I do have a plan in mind and I do plan to follow it to a 'T' and execute that."
-- Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star talked with Minnesota Vikings running Adrian Peterson during a conference call for Hyperice, a device he used in his recovery after tearing two ligaments in his left knee during the 2011 season.
Chappell asked Peterson about returning from a torn ACL because Indianapolis Colts veteran receiver Reggie Wayne is trying to work his way back from one of those injuries.
"My expectations of Reggie Wayne [are] for him to come back and be just as good or even better,'' Peterson said. "Why I say that is he's now in a position where age is a factor, or so they say. He has something to prove."
