Andrus Heads Back to Camp
Veteran kicker Adam Vinatieri had looked impressive in his preseason opener against the Rams with a pair of kickoffs into the end zone, a successful onsides kick, and a 53-yard field goal. So it appeared he was ready to handle all facets of the Colts kicking game for the balance of the year.
And then something inexplicable happened.
Just hours after Andrus was told his stint had ended, Vinatieri reportedly sprained his ankle while running during a personal workout. Suddenly the Colts didn't have a healthy kicker in camp, and possibly no one to kick against the Seahawks this weekend when they host them at the RCA Dome.
The Colts had to wait for Andrus to clear waivers today before they could re-sign him, which he apparently did this afternoon since we've learned that he's returned to Terre Haute. It's expected that Andrus be handling all the kicking duties in this weekend's game, even though the Colts are saying that Vinatieri is day-to-day with his injury.
