The Indianapolis Colts will open the season without the anchor of their offensive line. "I don't have a timetable yet".
In the mean time though, the Colts are now starting undrafted rookie Deyshawn Bond with the 1st team offense, which no disrespect to the young lineman, but doesn't appear to be a sustained recipe for regular season success.
The Colts could certainly look outside the building for options at center.
However, Luck still hasn't stepped on the practice field due to complications with his recovery from shoulder surgery, and now Ryan Kelly will be sidelined for 6-8 weeks as he will require surgery to fix his foot injury.
West Brom in talks with Tottenham over £15m deal for Kevin Wimmer
A move for Wimmer will increase speculation Baggies skipper Jonny Evans is set for a big money move to Manchester City. West Brom and Spurs appear to have agreed a fee of £15 million for the 24-year-old defender.
More bad news for the Indianapolis Colts as coach Chuck Pagano told reporters Thursday morning that center Ryan Kelly is having foot surgery and will miss the start of the season. "The roster's fluid. We bring guys in all the time".
The Colts met with former San Francisco 49ers center Jeremy Zuttah after he was released by the club last week. Veteran Nick Mangold is a free agent option as well.
If Schwenke is unable to return relatively soon, it appears that the Colts have to do something significant at the position though. Durability is an issue for Schwenke, as 2016 was the first season in his professional career where he played at least 12 games.
We all know by now that quarterback Andrew Luck hasn't returned to practice due to offseason shoulder surgery and nobody knows whether he'll be ready for the season opener. He was a Pro Bowl alternate at center for the Baltimore Ravene last season. Schwenke, going into his 5 year, played in 41 games with the Titans and started 28 of them.
