Colts second-year T/G Denzelle Good was getting reps at right guard at Tuesday's OTA.

Good made four starts at right tackle as a rookie, receiving strong marks from Pro Football Focus for his run blocking. A mammoth at 6'6/340, Good is a plus athlete for his size, and the team has talked him up as a potential starter. The Colts are set LT-C, but need to figure out the right side of their line.

Phillip Dorsett (hamstring) returned to practice on Tuesday.

Dorsett pulled his hamstring in mid-May, but it was never considered a serious issue. He should be a full-go for the rest of the offseason program.

Colts first-round C Ryan Kelly is getting all of the first-team work at OTAs.

Kelly was fully expected to start after the Colts made him the No. 18 overall pick, and Indy is showing their level of faith by not even feigning a competition. Kelly could have some rookie hiccups, but he should be a big upgrade. LT Anthony Castonzo and LG Jack Mewhort are locked into their spots as well, but the right side of the offensive line remains a question mark.

Colts ILB Nate Irving has lost nearly 30 pounds this offseason.

Coming off a 2014 ACL tear, Irving struggled to stay in shape last season, weighing in at around 260 pounds. "My weight ballooned up and that has affects on your knee and your muscles around it," Irving said. "[My knee] feels way better. I’m not as sluggish. I feel great." Now close to full health, Irving will battle Sio Moore for the starting job opposite D'Qwell Jackson.

The Colts are expected to scale back second-year NT David Parry's snaps.

A starter as a fifth-round rookie last season, Parry got off to a hot start before fading down the stretch, perhaps in part because the Colts were asking too much of him. The Indy Star names Hassan Ridgeway (6'3/303), T.Y. McGill (6'0/299), and Zach Kerr (6'1/326) as interior linemen who could ease Parry's workload.

Colts signed third-round OT Le'Raven Clark to a four-year contract.

Clark has been working extensively with the second-team offense at OTAs. He's probably not in the mix to start, but could see snaps in jumbo packages.

T.Y. Hilton said he's "more motivated, more hungry" entering this season.

The Indy Star says Hilton already looks "in midseason form" at OTAs. "I've never seen this guy practice as fast as he's practicing right now," coach Chuck Pagano said. "He’s done it day in and day out." Hilton had a bit of a down year last season, posting a three-year low with 69 catches, but was able to turn them into 1,124 yards and five scores, playing half the season with Matt Hasselbeck and Ryan Lindley. With Andrew Luck back healthy, Hilton is shaping up as a value pick in the third round of 12-team drafts.

Colts signed No. 57 overall pick S T.J. Green to a four-year contract.

Green is an explosive athlete with good cover skills, but he has only played on the defensive side of the ball for two seasons. He will likely be given a year to develop behind starters Mike Adams and Clayton Geathers before pushing for playing time. Green could be the long-term replacement for Adams, who turned 35 in March.

Colts.com's Kevin Bowen speculates Indianapolis could use fewer two-tight-end sets this season.

Bowen speculates the Colts could be comfortable with Dwayne Allen and Jack Doyle as their only experienced tight ends because they plan to use fewer big sets. With Coby Fleener now in New Orleans and a lot invested in a young trio of receivers, it would make sense for the Colts to spread it out more moving forward, but that does not mean Allen will disappear from the offense. A three-down tight end, Allen should thrive in an expanded role this season.

Colts RCB Vontae Davis (foot surgery) is practicing "full speed" at OTAs.

Davis underwent a "minor" foot operation in February, but he appears close to fully recovered. Beat writer Stephen Holder says Davis was "really hampered" by the injury last season, resulting in a dip in on-field effectiveness. Still only 28 years old, Davis is a good bet for a bounce-back 2016 campaign.

Jonnotthan Harrison has been getting reps at guard during OTAs.

He's made 19 starts at center over the last two seasons, but that position will be occupied by first-round pick Ryan Kelly. With Kelly at center, Harrison will slide over to right guard where he'll compete with Hugh Thornton and Denzelle Good. Harrison played almost exclusively at center in college (one start at guard) and hasn't played a full game at guard in the pros.

Nate Irving and Sio Moore will compete for a starting spot at inside linebacker.

D'Qwell Jackson is locked in as one of the starters, leaving the other inside linebacker job up for grabs. Irving specializes in stopping the run while Moore is more athletic and can pressure the quarterback. Irving wasn't himself last year after suffering a torn ACL in 2014, but coach Chuck Pagano said he's looked much healthier at OTAs.

Phillip Dorsett suffered a hamstring injury at Tuesday's OTAs.

Dorsett pulled up lame after stretching out for a pass. He was able to walk off on his own power. It's probably minor but at this early juncture, the Colts can afford to take things slow with Dorsett. The 2015 first-round pick missed five games with a fractured fibula as a rookie.

Donte Moncrief underwent turf toe surgery earlier this offseason, but it is not considered a long-term concern.

Moncrief dealt with the issue for much of December before apparently making it worse in Week 17. We already knew Moncrief was sidelined, but the operation had not been previously disclosed. It's unideal, but it appears the Colts are just being overly cautious with their third-year wideout. Moncrief is on the breakout radar after taking a big step forward last season. He should get back to 100 percent well before training camp.
May 17 - 6:00 PM

Colts coach Chuck Pagano "hopes" DE Arthur Jones (ankle) will be ready for training camp.

Jones is apparently still recovering surgery to repair torn ligaments in his ankle. He went under the knife early last September. A couple weeks shy of his 30th birthday, Jones has played all of nine games for the Colts since signing a "five-year, $33 million" contract in 2014. He's already agreed to a pay cut, so his roster spot should be safe.
