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.

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.

Colts RB Tyler Varga (concussion) is not participating in OTAs.

Varga landed on injured reserve last season with a concussion he said it took four months to recover from. He may have been underselling the length of the recovery considering he is still not ready to participate in offseason work. Varga is committed to continuing his career, but he is dealing with a scary situation.
May 17 - 12:21 PM

Andrew Luck is practicing fully at OTAs.

Luck declared himself fully healthy last month, but it is nice to see him practicing without limits this early in the offseason program. He should be in line for a bounce-back season.
May 17 - 12:00 PM

Colts RG Hugh Thornton said he has cut his weight to 315 pounds.

Thornton has been listed as high as 336 pounds in his career. "The power is still there. The strength is still there. The endurance is still there," Thornton said. "I’m just lighter on my feet. I’m able to move around, block more, move my feet quicker and I think it will help with longevity." A third-round pick in 2013, Thornton has been a below-average starter who struggles to stay healthy. Perhaps shedding some extra pounds will help in both regards.

The Redskins' John Riggins, in 1984, was the last running back age 33 or older to rush for 1,000 yards in a season.

Frank Gore turns 33 on Saturday and is still steaming over rushing for just 967 yards last year. "When that didn’t happen, that was really, really frustrating," Gore said. "I'm not over it. I'm not going to be over it until I do it. I've been blessed that they kept me to get the opportunity to do it again." The Colts did very little to add to their backfield, leaving Gore in a potential every-down role. The additions of first-round C Ryan Kelly and third-round OT Le'Raven Clark and return of Andrew Luck to full health will help loosen things up for Gore.
