Gonzalez Misses Practice w/ Leg Injury

Receiver Anthony Gonzalez missed the team’s practice Sunday because of an injured right leg.

Coach Jim Caldwell didn’t give details about the injury, which occurred during Saturday’s mini-camp practice at Franklin College. Gonzalez stayed on the field after hurting his leg, but spent the rest of practice stretching it out.

Caldwell said Gonzalez, who’s expected to replace Marvin Harrison in the Colts’ lineup, could return to the field Tuesday or Wednesday when Indianapolis finishes its scheduled offseason workouts.

Gonzalez is yet another addition to Indy’s growing list of injured players. On Sunday, the Colts announced offensive lineman Steve Justice(notes) and receiver Sam Giguere are recovering from injuries, too.

Justice had back surgery this past week, while Giguere has been out since breaking a bone in his leg during practice last month.

The Colts didn’t say which leg Giguere hurt, but he’s expected to be ready for the start of training camp in August. He’s competing with Pierre Garcon, Roy Hall and Austin Collie to be Indy’s No. 3 receiver.

    Guys is Gonzo going to be ready for regular season? This guy is going to be hot this year if he and Wayne are splitting out down the open field. With their sure hands I think Peyton will have an aerial assault that will be hard to handle.
