Colts wide receiver Donte Moncrief was back at practice on a limited basis Wednesday.

Moncrief has been out since Week Two due to a shoulder injury. He’s proven to be both a big target and a reliable one for Andrew Luck, and his return would boost a Colts’ receiving corps that’s been hit hard by injuries.

Colts Coach Chuck Pagano said Moncrief would wear a no-contact jersey in his return to practice and would be monitored through the week. Moncrief has been recovering from a fractured scapula.

Pagano said he’s hopeful that Moncrief will play this week, and Moncrief told reporters he’ll “be surprised if [he] doesn’t play Sunday.”
