Colts WR Michael Pittman Jr. ‘ready to go’ vs. Chiefs

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. will return from a one-game injury absence to play against the visiting Kansas City Chiefs, coach Frank Reich announced Friday.

“Ready to go,” Reich said on Friday of Pittman, who sat out the Colts’ 24-0 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars last weekend due to a quadriceps injury.

Pittman, 24, caught nine passes for 121 yards and a touchdown in Indianapolis’ season-opening 20-20 tie with the Houston Texans on Sept. 11.

Rookie wideout Alec Pierce is expected to play against the Chiefs after clearing concussion protocol, per Reich.

Pierce, 22, sat out last week’s game after being injured during the season opener against the Texans. He was a second-round pick of the Colts in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Reich also announced three-time Pro Bowl linebacker Shaquille Leonard will not make his season debut on Sunday as he works his way back from offseason back surgery.

“Nothing has happened to set it back,” Reich said. “Everything has been positive. We knew it was going to be like this. … Everything has been according to plan. This is a tough injury. He’s handling it the right way. He has the right attitude.”
