Colts Notebook: New LB Jackson already showing leadership skills


"If you're a fan of the league, you're a fan of this game, you were definitely following what happened here two years ago," Jackson said. "So I think everyone admired that, and I was looking forward to joining it when I had the opportunity."

Toler eyeing training camp

The lasting image of Greg Toler's 2013 season is not a positive one.

The cornerback re-aggravated a nagging groin injury in the wild card playoff victory against the Kansas City Chiefs, allowing former Colts receiver Donnie Avery to sprint past him for a 79-yard touchdown early in the second quarter.

But most of Toler's work as a free agent addition for Indianapolis last year was solid. If all-too-brief.

The groin injury limited him to just nine games and seven starts, during which he managed one interception and seven pass deflections. After offseason surgery, he's aiming for a return in time for training camp.

"I'm just trying to get back out there with my guys, missing those games on the back end of the season," Toler said. "Surgery went well, just trying to get the scar tissue to break up so I can be ready for training camp. OTAs, I'm leaving that in the doctors' hands, getting back out there on the field as they feel I need be."

Many happy returns?

Chris Rainey appeared in just two games with the Colts last year before a broken leg ended his season in a Week 14 loss at Cincinnati. The former University of Florida star and Pittsburgh Steelers' fifth-round draft pick averaged 21.8 yards on kickoff returns and 7.3 yards on punt returns during his brief time with Indianapolis.

Both spots figure to be open again during this offseason, and Rainey believes he's the man for the job.

  • SPT - HB0725 - Colts Camp - 007 CB Darius Butler holds tight to No. 20 The number 20 has grown to mean something to Darius Butler. The former second-round pick was running out of chances when the Indianapolis Colts signed him during the 2012 season. Eleven starts and eight interceptions later, he’s ingrained as the team’s slot cornerback — working under the final season of a two-year, $4 million deal.
