TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) -- Indianapolis opened its first training
camp since 1998 without Peyton Manning. The Colts' star quarterback
is back in Indianapolis recovering from surgery to remove an
infected bursa sac from his left knee.
On the plus side, Marvin Harrison walked onto the field to
cheers. An injured left knee kept him out of action for most of
last season, but he returned for the playoff loss to San Diego. Fans chanted Harrison's name and cheered his catches during practice.
It was originally expected that Harrison would miss camp due to
offseason surgery in January. The 35-year-old Harrison has caught 1,042 career passes for 13,944 yards and 123 touchdowns in 12 years with the Colts. Most of those passes have come from Manning.
