Trent Richardson had chipped collarbone, separated AC joint
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Colts running back Trent Richardson revealed Thursday that he played last season with a chipped collarbone and a separated AC joint, reports ESPN.com. The AC joint is where the collarbone meets the shoulder.

"Toward the end of the season I felt a lot more comfortable, but the other time I was more injured," said Richardson, who had offseason shoulder surgery.

Coach Chuck Pagano said Richardson not only is healthier, but has a much better grasp of the playbook this year.

"He’s a lot more comfortable," Pagano said. "Basically it was survival for him at first, memorization. Now he has a better understanding scheme-wise, why we’re doing things, why we’re calling certain things, how we run plays. He has a better feel for guys he’s playing with, the line, guy in front of him, the fullback. He’s obviously in a much better place."

The Colts are expected to use Trent Richardson as the starter, but it sounds like if he struggles again then Ahmad Bradshaw or Vick Ballard could have a bigger role.

Andrew Luck headed for career season
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Colts quarterback Andrew Luck has been good for Fantasy owners the past two years. This year, he has the chance to be great.

Luck is a breakout candidate for a career season in 2014 because of his upgraded receiving corps with an improved T.Y. Hilton, the addition of Hakeem Nicks and the return to health of Reggie Wayne and Dwayne Allen.

Reggie Wayne cleared for training camp
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Colts receiver Reggie Wayne, who's coming back from a torn ACL, has been cleared for training camp, reports the team's website. Wayne showed up to camp in an Indy Car, which he said is symbolic because "he feels fast."

Wayne caught 38 passes for 503 yards and two touchdowns last year before the injury ended his season in Week 7.
