Colts trade Carter for Reed Training Camp notebook


He became expendable, however, by being the ninth receiver on a team that was crowded at the position. The team recently added former Colts wide receiver Brandon Stokley as a free agent. Injury issues also took their toll.

A fifth-round draft pick by Baltimore, Reed -- who signed a two-year contract extension during the off season -- is familiar with Colts head coach Chuck Pagano. Pagano is a former assistant coach with the Ravens.

Landry returns to practice

Veteran strong safety LaRon Landry participated in Wednesday’s practice. Landry had been sidelined since the second week of training camp in Anderson with a left knee injury.

There’s a chance the former Redskins and Jets defensive back will make his first pre-season appearance in an Indianapolis uniform if the rest of the week goes well.

“With LaRon, we’re hoping defensively we can get him out there and play with the first group. But for right now we’ll take it day-by-day and we’ll see what it is,” defensive coordinator Greg Manusky said Wednesday.

“I don’t know from the medical staff what they have planned. But if he’s up, then we’re ready to get him out there and get him a couple of snaps. A decent amount of snaps if he can.”

Also returning was rookie nose tackle Montori Hughes (stinger). Tight end Dwayne Allen (foot), inside linebacker Pat Angerer (foot), rookie offensive guard Hugh Thornton (ankle), defensive end Fili Moala (knee) and Bradshaw (foot) all saw work during the practice.

Injury list

Recently signed wide receiver Maurice Williams sat out Wednesday’s session. Williams was added to the roster Monday night and had participated in practice Tuesday afternoon. Inside linebacker Kelvin Sheppard, meanwhile, was sporting a walking boot on his right foot and did not practice.
