Despite returning from suspension,
Colts coach Chuck Pagano told reporters Monday Landry will play in Week 11 against New England, but safety
Landry was the starting safety for the Colts until he was suspended for four games after violating the league’s policy on performance enhancing substances.
The return of just-activated
Chuck Pagano believes that move could take time.
"What we're going to do is kind of just stick with the plan," he said. "Keep letting him get his legs underneath him. ... We'll just continue to put him there, see where he's at, evaluate him from a physical standpoint, mental standpoint. Any time you're away from the game and you're not out there for an extended period of time, it takes a little bit of time to get back. We'll just evaluate that situation on a daily basis."
Replacement Sergio Brown has performed well. He totaled two pass deflections in the Monday night defeat of the Giants. The Colts are 4-1 with Brown as a starter, but Landry is in the second season of a four-year contract worth $24 million.
The team also waived cornerback
Landry has finished serving a four-game suspension for violating the league's performance-enhancing drug policy, but the team will wait until Tuesday to activate the safety. Pagano said that the need for Landry to re-acclimate himself to football after missing a month was the key factor in keeping him out one more week.
