Bradshaw and Angerer activated from PUP

(Continued)

ANDERSON, Ind. —

Angerer, who hasn't practiced throughout the offseason, learned he was being activated midway through Tuesday morning's walkthrough.

After receiving the news, the inside linebacker broke into a wide grin and quickly took his place on the field.

"It was a lot of work to get back, and it's going to be fun to get back out there," Angerer said.

He initially injured his foot during the preseason opener last year, and he played through the pain for 11 regular season games. But he needed surgery in January and found himself sidelined again.

Eventually, he'll join the competition to start next to Jerrell Freeman — the man who replaced him last season. But Indianapolis vows not to rush Angerer.

"Even though he's off (PUP), he's much like Bradshaw," Pagano said. "We'll stick him in some walkthrough situations. He'll continue to do most of his rehab and his position work with Erin Barill and our trainers on the side. As soon as he's 100 percent and ready to go, we'll stick him into action. But it's day-to-day."

Bradshaw also figures to join a starting competition soon. But he also will serve as a mentor to second-year running back Vick Ballard — a role he performed with rookie David Wilson last year in New York.

"It fits right in," Bradshaw said of his role as mentor. "They came in (to the NFL) together, and they're two similar backs. Like I said, I taught David the same things, just to slow down, and that's pretty much it."

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Camp - Werner - 319 Werner's progress evident at Colts Camp

    Bjoern Werner's rookie training camp was rather quiet. The German-born outside linebacker went through individual drills and worked hard in full-team sessions, but he was overwhelmed by all the new information he was processing. And it was holding him back. When the season started, Werner was further set back by a foot injury that cost him three games, and he finished the year with just 2.5 sacks. Then the former Florida State star went to work.

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Camp - Fleener - 206 Colts focusing on situational improvement One year ago, the focus in Indianapolis Colts training camp was on turnovers. The team had committed far too many in 2012 and was determined not to repeat its mistakes. The theme at Anderson University carried over to the field, and the Colts' 14 turnovers were the fewest in the NFL last year.
