Colts wide receiver Austin Collie returned to practice yesterday and is now expected to be ready to play week one against the Chicago Bears.  Coach Chuck Pagano said that Collie was indeed a full go at practice the other day and has looked great out on the field.  While Collie is expected to be ready for week one, there is still some worry that one big hit could cause Collie to miss more time again.  Collie has suffered four concussions over the last twenty-one months and has just been cleared to get back to playing.  Although Collie has not played in a game for quite sometime, Pagano said that his condition is game ready.  He said that Collie “could run for days.”  While Collie might take a game or two to get back into the swing of things, his presence the field to go with Reggie Wayne is only a huge plus for the Colts.  He adds another steady weapon for rookie quarterback Andrew Luck to take advantage of.  The next chapter for the Colts begins in a few short days and it will be exciting to see how everything works out.
