Saturday hopeful to be ready for the opener

The Indy Star reports that center Jeff Saturday is hopeful that he’ll be back for the teams September 12th opener:

The objective is to be ready for the Indianapolis Colts’ Sept. 12 regular-season opener at Houston, but Jeff Saturday stopped short of guaranteeing he’ll be in the starting lineup. “Obviously my goal is going to be week one,” the Colts’ Pro Bowl center said today after going through a second practice following a long layoff necessitated by arthroscopic knee surgery. “That’s always been the goal. But I’m definitely not in a position that I can say that’s for sure. I’m working towards it.” Saturday, a four-time Pro Bowl selection, underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee on Aug. 12. He’s still uncertain exactly how he suffered the injury, but the surgery kept him off the practice field until Tuesday. Saturday went through some one-on-one work Tuesday, then took some snaps today. “Yeah, you’re working back,” he said. “Just getting in my football position, moving around. Moving to the speed of the game is a big difference.”
