Colts Camp: Simon still missing as Colts start practice

TERRE HAUTE — The Indianapolis Colts went through their first two practices of training camp Monday, but veteran defensive tackle Corey Simon was no where to be seen. Simon’s status with the Colts for the upcoming season, which has been considered tenuous at best, remains an unanswered question.

Colts team president Bill Polian didn’t have much to say about the issue following Monday’s morning session. But he did acknowledge that he was awaiting word from Indianapolis’ medical staff regarding Simon’s physical.

“We’re waiting for discussion from the doctors on the Simon physical, so I have no resolution on that at this point. I suspect we’ll have one relatively soon,” Polian said. “It’s really in the hands of the doctors at this point. It’s their timetable.”

After suffering a knee injury during training camp last August, Simon’s recovery was slowed by an undisclosed illness. He was placed on the team’s non-football illness/injury list and wound up missing the entire 2006 season, which led to the Colts attempting to withhold a portion of his salary.

Simon and his representatives consequently filed a grievance with the NFL’s player union in an effort to recoup all or a portion of that money. Indianapolis officials then filed a counter-grievance, which is still pending.

So it came as somewhat of a minor surprise when Simon’s agent, Roosevelt Barnes, announced last week that his client would be reporting to training camp Sunday. Simon has been on the Colts’ active roster since the end of last season, but his future with the team appeared — and most likely continues to be — iffy at best.

“If he passed [his physical], our options would be to release him or to keep him on the active roster,” Polian explained. “I have no idea what the doctors will say. We’re waiting their interpretation of some test results, so we’ll see.”
