Indianapolis Colts 2010 organized team activities: K Adam Vinatieri’s situation becomes more clear
On May 28, 2010, In General, By John Oehser
With the Indianapolis Colts’ 2010 organized team activities sessions ongoing at the team’s practice facility, Indy Football Report Editor John Oehser takes a daily look at the team’s most-pressing issues . . .
One of the fuzzier storylines of the Indianapolis Colts’ 2010 off-season may have gotten a little clearer early during organized team activities.
This was Thursday, eight days ago. Most notably, this was the first time Colts K Adam Vinatieri had spoken publicly since the end of what was the longest, most-frustrating season of a career decidedly short on such seasons and decidedly long on history.
Vinatieri knew immediately the topic:
The hip and knee injuries that cost him most of the 2009 regular season and the entire post-season. He addressed it quickly, positively and enthusiastically, and that he did has to make the Colts feel more confident in their place-kicking situation than they have been in more than a year.
“Everything’s healed up and looking good,” Vinatieri said at the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center on the first day of media availability of OTAs. “The entire off-season, we’ve been working on strengthening everything back and making sure I’ll be ready for a long season.
“Things have been moving in exactly the direction we wanted to go.”
