Colts OLB Robert Mathis plans to be ready for training camp


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) Colts outside linebacker Robert Mathis is not ready to run yet, he told Alex Marvez of SiriusXM NFL. Mathis added that he plans to be ready for the start of training camp.

“It’s not going as fast as I would like to, but we are getting well and we should be clicking in camp,” Mathis told Sirius.

Mathis was suspended for the first four games of last season due to violating the league's substance abuse policy. He then suffered a torn achilles, forcing him to miss all 16 games of the 2014 season.

During his 11-year career with the Colts, Mathis has collected 487 total tackles, 111.0 sacks, 15 passes defensed and 48 forced fumbles.


Colts OLB Robert Mathis may not be back until November


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) Colts owner Jim Irsay said there's a chance outside linebacker Robert Mathis won't return from his torn Achilles until November. 

Speaking to ESPN.com, Irsay said this is the worst-case scenario

“We look for Robert Mathis at some point to re-emerge, it may not be until November,” Irsay said. “We don’t know yet in terms of his progress.”

Mathis tore his Achilles in September and then suffered a setback in December. 


Colts Robert Mathis may not return until November


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2015) Colts owner Jim Irsay said on Monday that outside linebacker Robert Mathis may not be able to return until November, reports ESPN. This would be the worst scenario on his return. 

Mathis was suspended for the first four games of the 2014 season after violating the league's performance-enhancing drug policy. The five-time Pro Bowler then tore his achilles and missed the entire year.

Mathis, 34, has spent his entire 11-year career with the Colts, recording 487 total tackles, 111.0 sacks, 15 passes defensed and 48 forced fumbles.


Report: Colts' Robert Mathis may have had setback in rehab


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/16/2015) Colts defensive end Robert Mathis suffered a setback in rehabilitating his torn Achilles, according to ESPN's Mike Wells

Mathis didn't re-tear the Achilles, as had been rumored, but he was already in danger of missing the start of training camp, and the latest news isn't good for Mathis, who turns 34 next week. 

Mathis' agent, Hadley Englehard, denied the report. Englehard told the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport that there had been no setback. Mathis' rehab is going fine, Englehard said, and he hopes to participate in part of offseason OTAs. 

The injury kept Mathis out all last season. He hasn't played since recording 19.5 sacks in 2013. 


Colts' Robert Mathis may not be ready for training camp


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/23/2015) Colts outside linebacker Robert Mathis is still recovering from a torn Achilles' tendon and could miss an extended period of time, including training camp, general manager Ryan Grigson said.

"No, he’s still in recovery," Grigson said when asked if he’s confident Mathis will be ready for training camp. "He’s a freak and you hope that he has an athletic genetic freak type of recovery so that he’s ready day one of training camp. But that information is not clear yet or a timeline is not there because it’s a tough injury. Hopefully in a couple months from now, we’ll be able to have some information on that."

Mathis torn the tendon in early September and missed the entire season. Without Mathis, the Colts were led by rookie Johnathan Newsome with 6 1/2 sacks in 2014.

"Obviously having [Mathis] out was a big hole," Grigson said. "But we don’t make excuses. That stuff gets forgotten and it should because a lot of teams win without key players. The next man up is for real. We found a way to still get pressure and play without his presence, but it makes it a heck of a lot harder, I promise you that. Just having him out on the field, even if he didn’t get out of his stance, it’s still going to command two blockers or more. That completely changes the complexion of a game just having him physically out there."
