Picking up where they left off the last couple of seasons, injuries in the secondary continue to take their toll on the Colts. A disturbing trend continued in the final practice of the team's rookie minicamp April 30 through May 2 when third-round CB Kevin Thomas, who was projected for the nickel role against bigger receivers, suffered a knee injury that could cause him to miss his entire rookie season. "They're shorthanded on the corners," said one daily team observer. "They're hoping that (seventh-rounder) Ray Fisher, who was being looked at primarily as a return guy, can pick up the slack. It's the same thing that happened with (former Colt) T.J. Rushing, although Fisher is a much more accomplished corner than Rushing was." We're told the Colts are still counting on Fisher, who averaged 37.4 yards with two touchdowns on 17 kickoff returns as a senior at Indiana, to be their primary kickoff returner in 2010.
