Irving is progressing well in his rehab from an ACL injury, the Colts' official site reports. "He's ahead of schedule as far as the rehab goes," coach Chuck Pagano noted of Irving earlier this month.

With that in mind, the hope remains that Irving is on track to take the field during training camp, though he may not be full-go on that front right away. "The docs and the trainers are optimistic that there's a possibility that by August 1 he might be ready to get back in the fold and do some things, but it's not 100 percent," Pagano cautioned. Once he's up to speed, Irving -- who recorded 46 tackles in eight games for Denver in 2014 -- will have a chance to compete for a starting inside linebacker job for the Colts.

Irving (knee) is targeting training camp for a potential return, Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star reports.

Irving continues to rehab from an ACL issue, and the Colts were the club willing to gamble on him with a three-year contract despite the injury. If he can return to full health, there's a possibility he'll compete for playing time at inside linebacker, but he could also serve as a member of the Colts' special teams. Irving finished the 2014 campaign with 46 tackles (26 solo) and one sack over eight games with the Broncos.

Irving (knee) signed with the Colts on Friday, Kevin Bowen of reports.

With D'Qwell Jackson and Jerrell Freeman both under contract, Irving doesn't project as a starter for the Colts. He could, however, be the top backup at both inside linebacker spots, which would leave him one injury away from IDP relevance in deeper leagues. Irving recorded a career-high 46 tackles over just eight games in 2014, before a knee issue brought his season to an early end, further adding to Denver's injury woes at linebacker. While the injury did eventually require surgery, it wasn't a torn ACL. That means Irving will likely be fine for training camp, though it can't quite be assumed.

Based on the initial diagnosis, Irving is believed to have suffered a sprained MCL in Sunday's game against the Patriots, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Irving had a game-high 13 tackles Sunday against the Seahawks.

Irving has been an excellent source of tackles recently, registering 24 of them in his last two games. Unfortunately he won't be able to keep the momentum going in Week 4, as the Broncos head out on bye before a Week 5 matchup against the Cardinals.
