Khaled Holmes Could Be Back For Start of Season
The Colts saw starting center Khaled Holmes leave Thursday nights preseason game against the Jets with an ankle injury before the end of their first possession, but initial fears of a lengthy absence have subsided.
Khaled Holmes was at the teams practice Saturday wearing a boot on his left leg and coach Chuck Pagano said after the session that the team expected him to miss a few weeks before returning to his role in the middle of the teams offensive line in time for the start of the regular season.
Were optimistic that hell get back in time to get in the lineup and have at least a week or so of practice, two or three, whatever it is, Pagano said. I dont know what it will end up being, but were optimistic that hell be back by the opener.
Undrafted rookie Jonotthan Harrison replaced Holmes against the Jets and Pagano indicated he would get most of the work while Holmes is out of the lineup.
