Colts LB Anthony Walker said he has cleared the concussion protocol.

He tweeted, "All Clear" with a thumbs-up emoji on Friday. Walker suffered the injury at last week's minicamp. The Northwestern alum logged 22 tackles over 115 defensive snaps as a rookie in 2017.

45-year-old Colts K Adam Vinatieri says he has no plans to retire in the near future.

"I love it as much today as I had when I started 23 years ago," Vinatieri said. "I’m not looking to hang them up anytime soon. ... I guess I’ll take these one year at a time and see where it ends up." Headed into his 23rd year in the league, Vinatieri remained an 85.3 percent field goal kicker last season and is approaching several league records.

Indy Star's Stephen Holder writes Eric Ebron "has been among the more impressive Colts" during the offseason program.

Ebron has been used all over the formation by new coach Frank Reich. "He’s really smart," Reich said. "And that’s really good because you want to use a guy with the versatility that he has and move him around and call all kinds of things with him." Even with Jack Doyle atop the depth chart, Ebron should see his fair share of targets in an offense desperate for playmakers behind T.Y. Hilton. He is a fine late-round stab in deeper leagues.

1070 The Fan's Kevin Bowen reports Colts LB Tyrell Adams saw reps with the first-team defense during the offseason program.

Adams worked at the SAM spot in Indy's new 4-3 scheme, ahead of 2016 fourth-rounder Antonio Morrison. Adams made similar noise with the Raiders last year before playing just 99 snaps on defense, and second-round LB Darius Leonard has been sidelined by a hamstring injury. Still, it looks like Adams has a shot on a wide-open depth chart.

Andrew Luck said the "pain" in his surgically-repaired shoulder is "gone."

"And it’s going to stay that way," the quarterback added. "My body doesn’t revolt, in a sense, to new things I ask." Luck finally threw a football in front of reporters and cameras last week, and he seems much more confident about his health than he was at this time last year. MMQB's Albert Breer reports the Colts will limit Luck in camp, giving him days off and monitoring his reps, but there is finally light at the end of the tunnel.

Colts SS Clayton Geathers is questionable for training camp.

Geathers hasn't practiced this offseason with an undisclosed injury. He missed 11 games with a neck issue last year, so it's possible he's dealing with a setback. The Colts are hoping to have Geathers and Malik Hooker (knee) for the start of camp.

Colts FS Malik Hooker (knee) has a chance to be cleared for training camp.

Hooker is eight months removed from ACL surgery. He did some off-field work at OTAs but has been without a concrete timetable. Returning for the start of training camp would likely be a best-case scenario, though it sounds like Hooker may avoid the active/PUP list. Barring setbacks, Hooker should be ready for Week 1.

The Colts held Chester Rogers out of minicamp.

Rogers had his 2017 derailed by a hamstring issue. The missed time is a concern given his history of sort-tissue injuries, but he should be fine for training camp. The Colts have an open depth chart behind T.Y. Hilton, with Rogers, Ryan Grant, Deon Cain and Daurius Fountain all competing for reps.

Colts DE John Simon has "hardly seen any starting reps" at minicamp.

Simon has struggled with his move to end this offseason. He doesn't look like a fit in the Colts' 4-3 scheme and isn't a lock for the final roster. Indy can save $3.3 million from cutting Simon.

Colts GM Chris Ballard hopes to have TE Erik Swoope (knee) back for training camp.

Swoope has been sidelined since August surgery. It's possible he'll open camp on the active/PUP list after an extended layoff. With Eric Ebron and Jack Doyle ahead of him, Swoope doesn't have a path to 2018 snaps.

The Indianapolis Star expects rookie Deon Cain to compete for a role in three-wide sets.

A minicamp standout, Cain has drawn raves for his red-zone skills. The Colts don't have any proven options behind T.Y. Hilton, with Chester Rogers and Ryan Grant ($5 million guaranteed) the favorites to open the year in three-wide sets. There's some depth chart climbing in front of Cain, but he could push for an early season role.

Following this week's minicamp, Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star believes it's "clear" the Colts have "big designs" for rookie Nyheim Hines on offense.

Keefer added Hines was "among the most active players on offense" in spring practices, lining up at multiple positions, including the backfield, slot, out wide, and running the ball as well as catching it deep. Hines blazed a 4.38 forty at the Combine and was a do-it-all Swiss Army Knife at NC State. The Colts figure to come up with multiple ways to get the ball in his hands as much as possible, including as a returner. Hines is a late-round sleeper for those betting on pure talent.

The Indianapolis Star believes Robert Turbin will have an "important place" in the Colts' offense.

Similar things were written about 28-year-old Turbin last spring and summer. He went on to generate just 53 yards on 23 carries before an arm injury ended his season. Turbin is the owner of a 3.8 career YPC. Nevertheless, coach Frank Reich has talked him up. "I think he brings an element of size and power and strength to the mix," Reich said of Turbin. "But what I like about him is not only has he shown that size and power and strength, he’s smart, he’s good in protections and he’s good enough of a route runner that he can be a three-down back." Despite the glowing words, Turbin is simply trying to claim his share of a committee that could also feature Marlon Mack and rookies Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins.

Colts LB Anthony Walker suffered a concussion during Wednesday's practice.

Walker should be fine in time for camp, but concussions are always notable. A fifth-round pick last year, Walker played just 115 defensive snaps as a rookie, but he should play a bigger role this season in the Colts' new 4-3 scheme. He was working at middle linebacker before the injury.
Jun 14 - 12:27 PM

Fifth-round RB Jordan Wilkins has mixed in with the Colts' first-team offense at minicamp.

And he's getting reps with Andrew Luck, who returned to practice on Tuesday and is doing more on Wednesday. Beat writer George Bremer noted Wilkins caught a deep wheel route from Luck. Robert Turbin has gotten most of the first-team running back reps, but the Colts know what he brings to the table. Marlon Mack is rehabbing from shoulder surgery. Wilkins is a late-round fantasy sleeper.
