Going through drills and on-field action with a different opponent has endless benefits, and head coach Chuck Pagano said he feels his team has a chance to see how they measure up to the competition.

"I didn't see it". But with the influx of outside talent brought into the organization in new general manager Chris Ballard's first year on the job, it seems the Colts aren't willing to wait and see how Langford heals. The source indicated Kelly was lucky the injury wasn't more severe. He stepped in from the first day of his rookie season and added stability at a position that had been in constant flux.

The unit generated much optimism in the spring with an increased cohesion honed in part during group workouts throughout the offseason.

There is no obvious and experienced replacement for Kelly on the roster.

Starting right tackle Ricky Wagner is the latest victim.

Veteran Brian Schwenke was signed as a free agent from the Tennessee Titans to compete along the interior and potentially serve as Kelly's primary backup.

Langford went on the physically unable to perform list as training camp opened with an injured knee.

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck's (shoulder) Week 1 availability continues to cause concern, ESPN's Adam Schefter said while appearing on Jeff Ratcliffe's Sirus XM Fantasy show.

The injury isn't expected to keep the team's starting center out of the September 10 regular-season opener against the Los Angeles Rams.

The Colts have been down this road before. In his only start last season, Tolzien threw for 216 yards, one TD and a pair of interceptions. Get the app and get the game. He upgraded the experience and durability of his right side, too, to complement Matthew Stafford's still-green blind side. "These two days against Detroit I think will be a real test against their front line, and we'll get a good gauge for where we are at with the O-line".
