Schefter also said that others close to the situation have agreed with the diagnosis that it's just a sprain.

"He has a sprained ligament, not a fractured bone in the ankle, and he's on pace for the opener," Kelley said.
The Colts have stated that a doctor will provide a report on Vinatieri's condition on Friday.
