Colts OC Rob Chudzinski talked up Robert Turbin for having a "hell of a spring."

"Much better this spring than he was this time of year a year ago," added Chudzinski. Turbin returns as the Colts' clear-cut No. 2 to Frank Gore, and signs point to Turbin being even more involved than he was a year ago when he scored eight touchdowns on 73 touches. Gore is another year older, and the Colts want to keep him fresh. Turbin is worth a late-round pick since he's an injury away from a prominent role in one of the league's best offenses.

Colts.com's Kevin Bowen reports there have been no updates on Andrew Luck's (shoulder surgery) rehab.

Bowen writes "we still do not know" if Luck has resumed throwing or when he will. Considering how the Panthers handled the start of Cam Newton's throwing program, we probably would know if Luck had begun throwing, suggesting he has yet to even soft toss a football with less than three weeks left until the start of training camp. That is a major concern, although, as Bowen notes, the Colts still do not seem concerned about Luck's availability for Week 1. Even so, it is getting to the point where Luck needs to be moved down a few spots in fantasy drafts.

Andrew Luck (shoulder) has yet to start throwing, but is "feeling better and better every week."

"Still haven't started throwing, but that process will come when it's ready," Luck said. "No reason to be sullen or morose. It's a beautiful day." Luck underwent a major procedure to his throwing shoulder and remains without a timetable to return. The Colts and Luck have been optimistic on his recovery, but it's becoming concerning that he hasn't been able to do anything for 5-6 months. We still expect Luck back for Week 1, but he has considerable rust to knock off.

Kevin Bowen of Colts.com called TE Darrell Daniels a name to watch among the Colts' undrafted rookies.

It was a mild surprise when Daniels went undrafted out of Washington, and the Colts don't have much tight end depth behind Jack Doyle and Erik Swoope. The Colts have rostered at least one UDFA in 18 straight seasons. Bowen also mentioned UFDAs CB Dante Blackmon and RB Dalton Crossan as candidates to make the team.

Colts.com's Kevin Bowen wrote WR Chester Rogers has a "real shot" to earn the No. 3 job.

A second-year UDFA out of Grambling State, Rogers earned praise from all corners for his offseason work, with GM Chris Ballard saying he was "outstanding" and OC Rob Chudzinski calling him "a guy that you love." With a wide open depth chart behind T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief, it is not crazy to think Rogers pushes Kamar Aiken or failed first-rounder Phillip Dorsett in camp, although Aiken remains the favorite for the job. Rogers hauled in 19 passes for 273 yards as a rookie.

Colts placed RB Christine Michael on injured reserve.

Michael's annual hype train won't be able to leave the station this season. Michael went down at minicamp and the injury isn't known yet, but the Colts quickly added him to the IR. In a corresponding move, the Colts signed RB Troymaine Pope. The Colts have one of the shallowest backfields in the NFL.

CBS 4 Indy's Mike Chappell expects Frank Gore to remain the Colts' "workhorse" this season.

Chappell acknowledges Robert Turbin and perhaps rookie Marlon Mack could or even will help with the running back load, but Gore looks to be in no danger of losing his lead-back job. A concern for Gore's 2017 upside is Turbin's superior 2016 red-zone efficiency. Whereas Turbin converted 5-of-10 carries inside the five-yard line into touchdowns, Gore went 2-for-10 on such opportunities.

Colts ILB Jon Bostic has "consistently" worked with the first-team defense at OTAs and minicamp.

Coach Chuck Pagano "raved about" Bostic following Wednesday's minicamp practice. A former second-round pick of the Bears, Bostic has long been an explosive athlete but struggled with technique and fundamentals. On a wide-open Colts inside linebacker depth chart, Bostic could emerge as an IDP sleeper.

Colts third-year WR Phillip Dorsett is missing minicamp with a hamstring injury.

The injury isn't believed to be severe, but it's costing Dorsett a chance to make depth-chart progress after flopping his first two years in the league. Dorsett is in danger of losing his third receiver duties to Kamar Aiken.

The Indianapolis Star's Zak Keefer says to "count on" Robert Turbin having a bigger role in 2017.

After scoring seven touchdowns on just 47 offensive touches last year, Turbin is having a "hell of a spring," per OC Rob Chudzinski. "We're really pleased with Turbin. He's developing into a leader." A replacement-level journeyman, coaching staff preference may keep Turbin ahead of fourth-round pick Marlon Mack on the depth chart. Turbin is Frank Gore's best handcuff.

Colts DE Kendall Langford is recovering from offseason knee surgery.

He's been absent from OTAs and minicamp as he rehabs on a side field. Langford's 2016 season was cut short by an August knee scope that he never seemed to recover from, and he was sent to I.R. in November. A steady vet at 31, Langford had never missed a game before midway through 2016.

Recovering from surgery on his right (throwing) shoulder, Andrew Luck was noncommittal Tuesday when asked about his availability for the start of training camp.

Luck said he lost 15 pounds following his January surgery, but he has gained 10-12 pounds back. "To be honest, I have not thought about (training camp)," Luck said. "If I'm ready for it, then great. If I'm not, then that's the way it is." We're nearly three months away from Week 1, but there should probably be more concern about Luck's health than the Colts have let on. We still have little doubt he'll be starting on Opening Day.

Coach Chuck Pagano said at minicamp the Colts "loved" Christine Michael's "explosiveness" before they signed him.

Unsurprisingly, Michael "crushed" his workout before the Colts signed him on June 1. Michael has never lacked high-level running talent, but he has never mastered the smaller points of running back-ing. Still, Michael's presence on the roster is an obstacle in the way of fourth-round pick Marlon Mack.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said sophomore DT Hassan Ridgeway underwent shoulder surgery.

Despite the operation, Pagano expects Ridgeway to be ready for camp. A fourth-round pick last year, Ridgeway recorded 1.5 sacks in 442 snaps as a rookie.
Jun 13 - 1:15 PM

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said T.Y. Hilton may miss minicamp with a hamstring strain.

The coach made it seem like the injury is minor, but hamstring injuries are always notable for receivers. Even so, there will not be any real reason for concern unless Hilton is forced to miss time early in camp. Coming off a 91/1,448/6 season, Hilton is once again a locked-in WR1.
