BREAKING: Colts' LaRon Landry Returns to Practice

By on 1/08/2014 01:30:00 PM

Via the Twitter feed of Indianapolis Colts' beat writer Mike Chappell, safety LaRon Landry has returned to practice, and is looks like he'll be ready to play in this weekend's divisional round game after battling a concussion suffered in last week's 45-44 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs.

Landry did not practice yesterday and still needed to be cleared by an independent neurologist in order to begin working out. Chappell had the mind about him to verify it with photographic evidence this morning, making us believe that Landry has since been cleared for practice.

Landry suffered the concussion after taking a knee to the helmet by Chiefs' tight end Anthony Fasano. Following in suit with many of today's concussions, Landry was repeatedly hit in the head in a congratulatory manner by teammates after the open field tackle. Maybe it's time to return to a simple high-five or butt slap.

The Colts go on the road to take on the playoff-tested New England Patriots in a game that is scheduled to kickoff this Saturday at 8:15 P.M. EST.

With the Patriots expected to run the ball often, Landry's heavy-hitting ways are an excellent matchup for the Colts as the safety is more effective when used as an added member to the run defense.
