Pair of marquee Colts start camp on PUP list

While the Colts’ physically-unable-to-perform list may not feature quite as big a name as it did last year when star QB Peyton Manning started training camp on the list, it still contains a pair of key contributors.

For the second straight season, 2007 Defensive Player of the Year Bob Sanders, will miss the outset of camp while on the PUP list. The safety is still recovering from knee surgery, but Colts coach Jim Caldwell expressed satisfaction that Sanders’ recovery is going well.

“He’s making good progress. He’s really looking good. He’s been diligent about his rehab. We feel he’ll be ready in a short amount of time,” said Caldwell.

The other big name starting on Indianapolis’ PUP list is kicker Adam Vinatieri. He is working his way back from a hip injury, but Caldwell said he is on the mend and should return soon.

In other Colts news, Caldwell clarified that offensive coordinator Tom Moore and offensive line coach Howard Mudd, who both had retired earlier in the offseason due to pension concerns before returning as consultants, will resume all of their former duties.
