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 been among the most accommodating teams to undrafted rookies in recent years, rostering at least one UDFA in 18 straight seasons. Bowen also mentioned UFDAs CB Dante Blackmon and RB Dalton Crossan as candidates to crack the 53-man roster.

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.

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.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano confirmed Andrew Luck (shoulder) will not do anything during minicamp.

Pagano said Luck's role will be to "just observe" and offered no timetable for the quarterback to begin throwing. The coach did say Luck will be on a "pitch count" once he begins his throwing program. While there still does not seem to be much concern about Week 1, this looks like an injury which will linger into camp.

The Herald Bulletin's George Bremer singled out second-year UDFA WR Chester Rogers as one of five standouts at Colts OTAs.

The 23-year-old out of Grambling State made the team last summer and contributed 19 catches for 273 scoreless yards. The Colts' receiver depth chart is wide open behind starters T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief. Kamar Aiken figures to have the lead for No. 3 duties, while Phillip Dorsett and Rogers compete for the No. 4 gig. Rogers has had "consistent performances" at practice and is always "exactly where he's supposed to be." Dorsett keeps tumbling down.

Colts claimed S Tyvis Powell off waivers from the Browns.

Powell was placed on waivers by his hometown Browns after lasting just three months with the organization. As an undrafted rookie, Powell appeared in just eight games with the Seahawks, primarily on special teams.
