The Indianapolis Colts will have one of their top receiving targets available in Austin Collie to help rookie quarterback Andrew Luck make his first official NFL regular-season debut against the Chicago Bears this Sunday, according to CBS Sports. Collie was out with a concussion injury for that he suffered against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week Two of the pre-season.
Head coach Chuck Pagano confirmed the news that Collie will be a “full-go” for Sunday.
“Fresh legs. Ran all over the place. Caught everything. Looked great,” Pagano said of Collie during practice on Tuesday.
The Colts’ wide receiver position will be completely healthy now heading into Week One.
Just about two weeks ago, they had many guys out and many wondered if Luck would even have enough receivers to throw to. With both Collie and Donnie Avery back from injury, Luck has a much better supporting cast as he faces a tough Bears defense. Along with Reggie Wayne, T.Y. Hilton and LaVon Brazill also being there, the Colts’ receiving corps seems set.
Along with Collie back in the saddle, Pagano also confirmed that cornerback Jerraud Powers, cornerback Justin King, guard Mike McGlynn and defensive tackle Corey Redding will be set to go for Sunday. All four of them are returning from injuries.
