Despite the Colts not being participants in this year’s Super Bowl, the players are out and about being interviewed by the media. Dallas Clark responded to questions yesterday morning, including those about his rehabilitation from a displaced tendon injury in his right wrist. Clark injured the wrist when he landed awkwardly toward the end of the October 17 game against the Redskins, and recently revealed that he had been in a cast for 3 months following surgery.
He has been free of the cast for 2 weeks now, and is working to regain strength and flexibility. Indy Star reporter Mike Chappell observed that when Clark flexed and rotated his right hand, the range was noticeably different from his left. He also noted that Clark is
unsure if his rehabilitation will allow him to participate in any of the Colts’ offseason activities. But he is confident he’ll be ready in late July or early August when training camp opens.
This is a couple months later than Coltzilla originally predicted, but still encouraging that he could return to the field in plenty of time. It is also worth noting that Clark is completing his therapy in Arizona, so is less likely to need access to team facilities should a lockout ensue.
