Updating an earlier report, Indianapolis Colts C Ryan Kelly (foot) is expected to miss six to eight weeks due to surgery to correct a bone defect in his foot, according to a source. Surgery is planned for Friday, Aug. 18.
Huddle Up: This is a big blow to the Colts' line, and it could have potential ramifications for Andrew Luck's (shoulder) return date. The team is being super cautious with their franchise quarterback, and the loss of Kelly makes an already leaky offensive line more vulnerable. RB Frank Gore also takes a hit because he predominately runs between the tackles, and Kelly was a big presence in opening holes for him. With Luck questionable for the start of the season, options like Kirk Cousins, Matt Ryan or Russell Wilson may be more attractive. Gore is still RB3 caliber, but age, attrition and concerns with the options around him make him less attractive than a younger upside pick.
