The Indianapolis Colts have circulated their weekly Tuesday pre-injury report.
They’ve announced that receiver Austin Collie and safety Bob Sanders will miss Sunday night’s NBC showdown against the Chargers. Sanders continues to recover from surgery to repair a torn biceps tendon. Collie, per the team, is being held out only as a “precautionary measure” after experiencing concussion-related symptoms against the Patriots on Sunday. Collie suffered the concussion on November 7 against the Eagles.
The Colts say that “there was no recurrence” of a concussion. It’s unknown whether the league’s return-from-concussion procedures apply in this specific case.
Also, running back Joseph Addai (neck) is expected to return to non-contact drills in practice. He has not played since October 17 at Washington. His timetable for a full return to practice isn’t known.
Finally, the Colts reported that defensive back Chip Vaughn (ankle) has been placed on injured reserve, and that defensive back Al Afalava has been signed as a free agent.
