INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Colts safety Delano Howell is seeing another specialist to determine the extent of his neck injury, and general manager Ryan Grigson says he hopes to know more before the end of this week.
Howell entered training camp as the front runner to start opposite LaRon Landry in the secondary. But Howell has missed almost two weeks of practice.
If Howell misses significant time, the position battle will likely be between Mike Adams, Colt Anderson and Sergio Brown.
Adams has 73 career starts in 11 NFL seasons and played on Denver's AFC championship team last season. Anderson is a five-year veteran who spent the last three seasons in Philadelphia. Brown has played the past three seasons in Indy where he excelled on special teams.
