Castonzo has sprained knee ligament
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Andrew Luck’s protectors are now taking their own hits.
Colts coach Chuck Pagano said Sunday that left tackle Anthony Castonzo will not play in the preseason finale after an MRI confirmed Castonzo has a mild sprain of the medial collateral ligament in his right knee. Castonzo was injured on the opening series’ of Saturday night’s 27-6 victory over Cleveland and did not return. Right guard Mike McGlynn did not play Saturday after bruising his knee during practice last week.
Castonzo is listed as day-to-day, and Pagano said Sunday he hopes both would be ready for the Sept. 8 opener against Oakland.
“The MRI was pretty much negative. It wasn’t as bad as anybody anticipated,” Pagano said, discussing Castonzo’s prognosis during a conference call. “You never want to lose anybody, and particularly the guy who’s protecting the blind side of your quarterback.”
Joe Reitz will replace Castonzo in the lineup at Cincinnati. Reitz started nine games in 2011 and eight last season, all with the Colts, after being cut by the Ravens in 2010.
Colts’ cuts start with LB Sidbury on IR
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indianapolis placed linebacker Lawrence Sidbury on injured reserve and waived 11 other players Sunday.
Indy has 78 players on the roster and must get to 75 by Tuesday.
Sidbury was signed in March as an unrestricted free agent and was supposed to help Indy on special teams and add depth at linebacker. He injured his shoulder last week against the Giants and sought a second opinion this week.
