Time running down for call on Manning
INDIANAPOLIS — Peyton Manning could be back on the active roster in the next two weeks. If not, the Colts will have to play the first six games without the four-time MVP.
League rules require players on the physically unable to perform list to be activated by the team’s final cutdown, Sept. 3, or to sit out an additional six weeks.
“I would say that it’s certainly a realistic possibility here and it could happen shortly,” Caldwell said.
Last Saturday, Manning told reporters he would not play in the final two preseason games and that he needed the next two weeks to get healthy.
Foster’s outlook positive
HOUSTON — Texans coach Gary Kubiak is optimistic Arian Foster will be ready for the regular-season opener after the running back aggravated a hamstring injury in Saturday’s preseason victory over San Francisco.
Foster, the NFL’s leading rusher in 2010, left the field in the first quarter of Houston’s 30-7 victory, favoring the left hamstring that he strained in one of the first workouts of training camp.
Kubiak also said All-Pro linebacker DeMeco Ryans will return to practice Monday. Ryans did not travel to San Francisco because of an elbow injury.
Pryor stumbles out of the gate
NAPA, CALIF. — On his second play of his first NFL practice with the Oakland Raiders, Terrelle Pryor fumbled the snap and had to fall on the ball.
He had one more fumbled snap and a few errant passes in his 16 plays during team sessions, looking more like someone who hadn’t played football since January than a future franchise quarterback. That’s all to be expected considering he just jumped right in on his first day with the Raiders, while most everyone else has had more than four weeks of training camp.
