Colts QB Colt McCoy to miss out on Patriots OTAs

Colts quarterback Colt McCoy will miss the first three OTAs and will not play in the preseason opener against the New England Patriots.

McCoy has missed four games with a torn ACL.

“I am hopeful we can have him back this week and have him get his legs moving,” Colts coach Chuck Pagano said.

“He is a player that has a long career ahead of him.

He is a special player, and we will see him again in a week or two.”

The Colts are set to host the Jets at Lucas Oil Stadium on Sept. 12 and then host the Saints on Sept 13.

They will then host Jacksonville on Sept 14 and then return home for the final three preseason games.

Colts QBs have been battling injury issues throughout the preseason.

QB Andrew Luck missed three games with injuries to his right knee and left shoulder.

The Colts lost Luck to a season-ending knee injury in Week 7.

WR Delanie Walker also has missed time with an ankle injury.

Rookie RB Chris Ivory has missed the last two preseason games with an undisclosed injury.

WR Dwayne Allen is questionable after injuring his right ankle in Week 3.

The Patriots’ offensive line was the NFL’s worst this season with an overall rating of 27.7.

New England finished the preseason as the league’s No. 3 unit with a sack total of 21.5.

New York finished fourth with an average of 5.5 sacks per game.

The Jets have allowed only six sacks and have allowed just 12 sacks in the first two preseason contests.

The Bills have allowed 10 sacks in their first two games.
