FLEENER, SIDBURY CHECK OUT OK
Tight end Coby Fleener and outside linebacker Lawrence Sidbury left the Giants’ game early with knee and shoulder issues, respectively.
Both underwent magnetic resonance imaging tests Monday, which proved to be negative.
“MRIs came back and they were negative and it looks like [Fleener] might miss some time early this week and then be back in the swing of things. Probably work him back into practice on Thursday and Friday,” Pagano said. “Sidbury was the other one. His came back negative also. He’s going to be day-to-day, really. He might miss a few days this week and we’ll look to see how he’s feeling towards the end of the week and if he’s going to be available for Saturday [preseason home game with Cleveland].”
Tight end Dwayne Allen has been sidelined for nearly two weeks with a foot injury. Allen, though, is out of his walking boot and might be able to see light practice this week.
“Yeah, he’s doing great. As a matter of fact, we’re going to monitor his reps [in practice]. It looks like he’s going to be able to get some work in [today], Wednesday, Thursday, go through the week.” the Colts coach said. “But again, we’ll monitor his reps and see how he does but he’s come back relatively quick.”
ANGERER, LANDRY DUE BACK
Inside linebacker Pat Angerer (foot) and strong safety LaRon Landry (knee) could return to the Indianapolis defensive lineup against the Browns.
Running back Ahmad Bradshaw (foot), though, will most likely sit out the game.
“Hopefully, we’ll get Landry. I think he should be able to get back in there. I’ll know more [today] or [Monday night] when I meet with our medical people to see how the treatment and everything went over the weekend. Hopefully, we get him back. I’m excited to get him back in there with [free safety Antoine] Bethea and the rest of the guys,” Pagano explained.
“We’re going to work Pat in. We worked him in last week, so I think we can increase the volume of reps on Pat and see where he’s at towards the end of the week and then make a decision if we want to get him in there for a few plays here and there. Ahmad is a guy that we said all along we’re going to err on the side of caution as we always say. But maybe he gets a chance to start working in there.”
