Indianapolis Colts: Good News, New Signings
August 29th, 2016 by Bullseye Event Group
The Indianapolis Colts will open the regular season on September 11 against the Detroit Lions. And as the Colts gear up to start their road to Super Bowl LI in Houston, Bullseye begins their Colts weekly update series.
Good News MVP
After suffering a knee injury in the second quarter of Saturday’s preseason home finale against the Philadelphia Eagles, Colts offensive lineman Jack Mewhort was reported to have suffered a season-ending knee injury, via Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
On Sunday afternoon, good news was the MVP as Colts owner Jim Irsay tweeted what was seemingly the best news Colts fans had heard in a long time.
Mewhort 2-4 weeks/No Surgery(Initial test results); plenty of work to do for this new Coaching Staff and new infusion of Player additions!

Mewhort’s absence would have been heavily noticed, as the offensive line hasn’t been a strong suit for the Colts since the Manning years. This initial MRI that showed to be just a minor injury proved to be a life saver for the Colts’ hopes of keeping Andrew Luck healthy.
New Face, New Place
The Colts signed former New England Patriots and Detroit Lions running back Stevan Ridley to a one-year deal on Sunday, helping bolster a backfield that has struggled to sport a two-back system since the days of Joseph Addai and Dominic Rhodes.

It remains to be seen where Ridley will fit into the Colts backfield. However, in a preseason that has seen 2nd and 3rd stringers Robert Turbin and Jordan Todman struggle to cement themselves.
