The Colts are taking the possibility of moving T.J. Green from safety to cornerback seriously. Green took almost all the first-team reps at cornerback in practice Wednesday. Green was selected as a safety in the second round of the 2016 draft.

The Colts had some of their injured players return to practice Tuesday. Receivers Donte Moncrief and Phillip Dorsett, running back Marlon Mack and linebacker Jon Bostic were all back after missing some or all of last week. Rookie safety Malik Hooker missed practice with a shoulder injury. Coach Chuck Pagano said the injury doesn't appear to be serious.

Preseason Power Rankings: Colts climb a spot

Indianapolis is trending up, but what's the deal with Andrew Luck? His shoulder has overshadowed training camp, and his health will make or break the Colts this season.

Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer 

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said on a conference call that tight end Erik Swoope is week to week after having a scope on his knee.

Has Andrew Luck already peaked?

If Luck is going to top his previous highs, it doesn't seem like he'll be doing so during a 2017 season that might top out at 14 games. However, his future could still showcase improvement.

Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer 

Biggest takeaway from Colts owner Jim Irsay talking postgame is that he can't say for sure that Andrew Luck will start their Week 1 game against the Los Angeles Rams.

LIONS 24, COLTS 10: The Colts didn't get their preseason off to a good start without quarterback Andrew Luck (shoulder), as they only picked up seven first downs through the first 53 minutes of the game. The starting unit, which was missing several key players outside of Luck, picked up only 21 yards of total offense in its three series on the field. Luck is still on the physically unable to perform list even though general manager Chris Ballard said on the television broadcast that his quarterback's strength level is currently higher than it was all of last season.

Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer 

It's only the preseason, but it should be very alarming to the Colts that they only have seven first downs with seven minutes remaining in the game against Detroit.

Phillip Walker wasn't much better than Scott Tolzien at quarterback for the Colts. Walker, an undrafted rookie that moved ahead of Stephen Morris on the depth chart, was sporadic throwing the ball around, as he was only 9-of-20 for 86 yards while being sacked three times.

Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer 

Colts quarterback Scott Tolzien's afternoon is done after three series against the Detroit Lions. Tolzien, starting in place of the injured Andrew Luck (shoulder), finished 2-of-5 for 24 yards. He was sacked once and had a pass batted down at the line of scrimmage. Tolzien will continue to start until Luck returns. Luck still is on the physically unable to perform list. Undrafted rookie free agent Phillip Walker has moved ahead of Stephen Morris on the depth chart and replaced Tolzien at quarterback.

New Colts outside linebacker John Simon, who spent the past three seasons with the Houston Texans, wasted little time making an impact. He intercepted a Matthew Stafford pass that was intended for receiver Marvin Jones that cornerback Vontae Davis broke up.

The Colts say the paint on the field was thicker than desired and it just needed touching up. They don't look at it as anything major.

Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer 

The area where the paint had to be scrubbed off has the words "Play Football" on it with the NFL logo. The paint has been scrubbed to where it's a lot lighter now.

Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer 

This is the area where the workers were addressing the field at Lucas Oil Stadium. The Lions are currently warming up on this end of the field.

Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer 

There are workers on the field at Lucas Oil Stadium trying to take care of some paint issues. No indication of the game being in jeopardy. Last year's Hall of Fame game between the Colts and Green Bay was cancelled because of paint issues on the field.
