COLTS NOTEBOOK: Training camp moves to Indianapolis for final phase

(Continued)

INDIANAPOLIS — More game  planning

With the starters expected to play more against the Browns, there will be more of a regular-season approach with game offensive and defensive game plans. NFL teams usually do not fully game plan during their first two pre-season games.

“We  try to treat this  one, the third preseason game, as a normal in-season game week. So [Tuesday],  yeah, [we treated] like a normal Wednesday. [Today] will be  like a normal Thursday and [Thursday] will be like a Friday,” Pagano  explained.

“So [we] try to  indoctrinate them, put a little bit of a game plan that’s not as extensive as  it will be for our opener against Oakland. But we will study some tape and get  the guys used to the process.”

Injury  report

Tight end Dwayne Allen (foot), rookie offensive guard Hugh  Thornton (ankle), rookie outside linebacker Daniel Adongo (bicep), wide  receiver Griff Whalen (groin), defensive end Fili Moala (knee), Bradshaw (foot) and Angerer all practiced on Tuesday.

Wide receiver LaVon  Brazill did not participate. Brazill, who will miss the first four regular  season games due to violations of the National Football League’s substance  abuse policies, sat out with his right foot in a walking boot. The extent and  type of injury was not immediately known.

Also missing the  workout were safety Joe Lefeged (calf), inside linebacker Josh McNary  (hamstring), rookie nose tackle Montori Hughes (stinger), outside linebacker  Lawrence Sidbury (shoulder), cornerback Teddy Williams (quad), Landry and  Fleener (knee).

“Fleener is the  same. He’s day-to-day. Dwayne Allen, we’ll start to work him back into  practice this week. We’ll monitor his reps. Lawrence Sidbury, again, he’s  going to get a second opinion. We’ll know more on him either later in the week  or early next week,” Pagano said.

“More than likely  doubtful for this game, probably won’t play. And then Fili [Moala], we took  off of [the physically unable to perform list] and we’re going to  start to work him in. Don’t anticipate, unless something drastic changes, him  playing this week. But good to have him back off PUP and work him back in the  mix.”

The Colts coach  added that he does not plan on rushing Bradshaw back too soon before the  regular season opener with Oakland. He was in full pads for the first time  since signing with the team this past spring.

“We’ll monitor it  and make sure we take care of him as far as reps go. But we’re going to get  him in there, get him through some individual [work],” he said. “Then  we’ll pick a period here, pick a period there to get him a couple of reps in  each of those deals. We’re going to ease him into it.”

Roster  moves

With Brazill sidelined, Indianapolis signed former Arena League wide receiver/defensive back Maurice Williams Monday night.

Williams (6-1, 195)  played for Cleveland and Orlando in the AFL. He played collegiately at the  University of Pittsburgh.

Roster cuts  coming up

The first of two mandated roster cuts was slated for Tuesday. Teams are currently carrying 90 players during training camp. That  number must be trimmed to 75 by Tuesday.

A final roster cut  from 75 to the regular-season limit of 53 will come the following Saturday  (Aug. 31).

“It’s going to be  tough. Just getting to 75 is tougher this year. Obviously getting to 53 after  the Cincinnati ball game is going to be tough,” Pagano voiced.

“We’ve got a lot of  guys taking full advantage of their opportunities. We’ re deeper at every  position. We wanted to create competition. This is what we wanted as far as  the roster goes. It’s going to be a much tougher task this time  around.”
