Indianapolis Colts guard Jack Mewhort is expected to miss two-to-four weeks with a knee injury. Mewhort was initially expected to miss the entire 2016 season after the injury was believed to be a torn ACL.
The Indianapolis Colts can breathe a sigh of relief with the recent news of offensive linemen Jack Mewhort.
In Saturday’s preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles, Mewhort left early with an injury. Originally, it was believed that he had suffered a torn ACL — which would likely end his third season with the Colts before it had even started.
Luckily as of today, Mewhort is expected to miss just two-to-four weeks and will not require surgery on his knee. The news comes via owner Jim Irsay.
This is terrific news for the Colts, as Mewhort is a key piece for a Colts offensive line that looks to step up its play from last season.
Even if Mewhort misses the first couple of weeks of the regular season, Colts fans can only be delighted to lose him for one-to-two games rather than the entire season.
When Mewhort returns from his knee injury, expect the Colts’ starting offensive line to look something like:
Colts Trim Roster by 10 Players
Justin Berger, safety Alden Darby, guard Eric Herman, defensive tackle Ricky Lumpkin, tight end Mike Miller, running back Chase Price, cornerback Winston Rose, defensive end Delvon Simmons, wide receiver Josh Stangby and inside linebacker Junior Sylvestre were the players to be released from the Colts.
The Colts now have 81 players on their roster with the addition of Ridley. On Tuesday, they will have to cut down their roster to 75 players by 4 p.m. ET.
