Colts' Austin Collie recovering from 4th concussion in two years


The Colts will be back inside the huddle Tuesday as they get ready for Saturday's game against the Washington Redskins, but two players won't be on the practice field.

Defensive end Cory Redding suffered a mild sprain on his left knee against the Steelers.

Receiver Austin Collie suffered a concussion. It's his fourth concussion in just two years. Collie was hit by Larry Foote on a play across the middle.

"Thanks to everyone for their thoughts and prayers. I'm doing really well and feeling great," Collie posted to Facebook.

Coach Chuck Pagano says there are a battery of tests in Collie's immediate future and there is no rush to get him back on the field.

"He came in today, felt really good," said Pagano Monday. "He was examined by the doctors. Basically he's gonna be day to day but he felt really good...this morning after being evaluated today. Players say he's first and foremost - we're gonna err here on the side of caution like we've talked about before. I'm more interested in the health of these guys."
