Colts injury update: Castonzo practices
By Mike Wells
INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianapolis Colts left tackle Anthony Castonzo didn’t have any setbacks from his first practice in almost two weeks, clearing the way for him to be in the starting lineup to protect quarterback Andrew Luck’s blind spot in the season opener on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders.
The Colts didn’t have all their starters participate in practice Friday, though. Linebacker Pat Angerer is dealing with a concussion and receiver Reggie Wayne was excused from practice for personal reasons.
There’s concern that kick returner/receiver David Reed won't be available for Sunday’s game. Reed suffered a concussion in the Aug. 29 game against Cleveland and he’s also dealing with a quad injury.
Colts coach Chuck Pagano said Reed is “trending in the right direction.” Cassius Vaughn and Joe Lefeged have been handling return duty all week in practice in Reed’s absence.
