Colts say Heyward-Bey’s sprained knee isn’t a serious injury

The Colts offered an update of sorts on the condition of wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey’s sprained left knee on Monday.

The Associated Press reports that Colts spokesman Avis Roper said that Heyward-Bey’s knee injury, which he suffered in practice on Sunday, was “not serious.” The team did not offer any exact idea about what that determination means in terms of a timeline for Heyward-Bey’s return to practice, although they said they don’t expect him out long.

According to the report, Heyward-Bey was not on crutches while he watched the rest of the Colts practice on Monday and that he didn’t require any other kind of help moving around.

All of that sounds encouraging, but Heyward-Bey still seems likely to miss some time and that could hurt him in his bid to win playing time over T.Y. Hilton. While the Colts will likely make liberal use of both receivers alongside Reggie Wayne, one of them will wind up on the second rung of the depth chart and Heyward-Bey can’t make his case if he isn’t on the field.

    Colts say Heyward-Bey’s sprained knee isn’t a serious injury

    His lack of talent may still be an issue

    So glad he chose the Colts over the Lions.

    Guess Bey dropped one of his Lobster Claws made of Granite, hands on his knee again. Must not have been a direct hit or he would be out a long time……Although if history repeats itself from his Raider days. Bey being out and playing will yield the same stat line…..

    I can promise you he didn’t sprain it catching a football.
    He may have twisted it when he turned to see where the pass that just clanked off his hands ended up…
    That’s an awkward move at best…

    Unfortunately his play on the field isn’t all that serious either.
