Pagano still waiting on word on injuries, says Moncrief 'closer'

The Indianapolis Colts had several players suffer injuries in Sunday night's loss to the Houston Texans, but as of late Monday afternoon, head coach Chuck Pagano didn't have much along the lines of updates for any of them.

Tight end Dwayne Allen (ankle), linebacker Curt Maggitt (ankle), wide receiver Quan Bray (ankle), and wide receiver Phillip Dorsett (hamstring) all left the game, while defensive lineman Henry Anderson (knee) left the game but returned. In particular, Pagano said he didn't know the exact status yet of Allen, Maggitt, Bray, and Dorsett.

"A lot of these guys, I really don't have a lot of finality to a lot of these injuries because we got back I think at 4:30 or 5 am, so the doctors and MRIs and all that stuff some of these guys required aren't done yet," Pagano said.

Pagano did give a brief update on wide receiver Donte Moncrief, who continues to recover from a fractured scapula.

"He's getting closer," Pagano said. "I can't give you a date, a game, a timetable, but he's getting close."

Pagano didn't know if Moncrief had a chance at returning to practice this week.

"I don't know the answer to that yet," Pagano said.
