George Bremer: Colts finally ready for some football

It hasn’t been a good offseason for the Indianapolis Colts. One player was arrested, two others were suspended by the league and a fourth was ordered to pay restitution to a man he allegedly punched during an incident in college.

So the franchise is probably as anxious to get training camp started this weekend in Anderson as the fans are to welcome their favorite team.

The good news is the wait is almost over.

Rookies can begin reporting to the team’s training complex in Indianapolis today, and the Colts will hold a three-day rookie mini-camp beginning Wednesday. On Saturday, the full team reports for training camp at Anderson University, and the first of 15 public practices is Sunday.

Top draft pick Bjoern Werner remains unsigned, but with little room for negotiations in the new collective bargaining agreement he’s likely to be on board by the weekend. The other mystery surrounds pass rusher Josh McNary.

The former Army standout signed as a free agent in April but is still completing his military commitment. The Colts obviously take a back seat to the Army lieutenant’s current day job, but if he is discharged in time for camp he could compete for a role as an outside linebacker.

The other 88 players currently on Indianapolis’ roster should be ready to go. That includes wide receiver LaVon Brazill and tight end Weslye Saunders, who will start the season with four- and eight-game suspensions, respectively, after running afoul of the NFL’s drug policies.

Safety Joe Lefeged also could miss some playing time pending the outcome of his arrest on gun and drug charges in Washington, D.C., but no discipline has yet been announced by the league.

Running back Delone Carter — who was ordered to pay damages to a man he allegedly punched while a student at Syracuse in 2010 — also could be in a roster battle. But his situation is complicated more by the addition of veteran Ahmad Bradshaw than by a three-year-old misstep.

  • Colts Camp 2014: Day 6

    The Colts returned to training camp practice at Anderson University on Wednesday and injuries were the hot topic on everyone's mind.

  • 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 Corner - HB Colts Notes: Thomas, Hilton hurt in Wednesday's practice After a physical practice Wednesday afternoon at Anderson University, the Indianapolis Colts are hoping they have not lost another starter. Left guard Donald Thomas hit the ground following an 11-on-11 running drill and was visibly upset when he finally was helped to his feet. He threw his mouthguard away in anger and attempted to walk off the injury with trainers away from the rest of his teammates.

  • 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.
