ANDERSON, Ind. (AP) The Indianapolis Colts will be without starting
defensive end Kendall Langford for three to four weeks after having
arthroscopic surgery on his injured knee.

Coach Chuck Pagano made the announcement when the team returned to
Anderson University on Tuesday.

Pagano said Langford hurt his knee in practice last week, was sent
back to Indianapolis for an MRI and doctors found a congenital
defect. Pagano did not say which knee was injured, but Pagano
remains hopeful that Langford will be ready for the Sept. 11 season
opener against Detroit.

There was better news on rookie center Ryan Kelly. Indy’s
first-round draft pick was expected to return to practice Tuesday
afternoon after missing more than a week an injured left shoulder.
