Collie Showing No Issues from Last Years Concussions

The Indy Star reports that WR Austin Collie is showing no issues from the concussions from last season.

Austin Collie is back doing what he does best, what he has done at a high level during his first two seasons as a receiver with the Indianapolis Colts. “I feel good,” Collie said in a recent telephone interview. “I feel like my routes are crisp and I’m catching the ball well. I’m doing all the little things.” Yet questions regarding whether Collie really is back and has put his concussion-plagued 2010 season behind him will persist until he’s not only running routes and catching passes from quarterback Peyton Manning, but is able to absorb and shrug off the ensuing contact. “I don’t know if you can say that (Collie is back) until he gets on the field and actually plays,” Colts vice chairman Bill Polian said in February. “Thus far, all the signs are positive.” Collie’s comeback from numbing concussions suffered Nov. 7 at Philadelphia and Dec. 19 against Jacksonville, along with what the team described as a third incident involving concussion-like symptoms Nov. 21 at New England, has been seamless. “No problems,” he said. “None.”
