Dallas Clark became the latest Colts offensive player to hit the sidelines when he pulled up lame at Friday’s practice, according to the Indianapolis Star.
There’s no way of knowing how serious the leg injury is, and the Colts do a better job than most keeping timetables under wraps. But Clark’s injury is the latest in a discouraging series of problems for Indianapolis.
Starting left tackle Charles Johnson has been out all week with a foot injury. No one is sure when he’ll return but there has been speculation locally and nationally from Peter King of SI.com that it could extend into the season. That forces new starting guard Tony Ugoh to move back to left tackle.
Center Jeff Saturday is out 2-6 weeks and rookie interior lineman Jacques McClendon has also been out.
The Colts reconfigured their offensive line this offseason, but they won’t get a chance to practice together much this month.
UPDATE: Clark’s injury doesn’t sound serious. The offensive line remains a bigger concern.
