While many Colts players were recovering on Tuesday from an early morning return from the west coast, LaRon Landry was busy in the weight room.
Landry, who was a full participant in Wednesday’s practice, hasn’t been happy to miss the past four games after he led the Colts with 26 tackles in the first two contests of 2013.
“It’s kind of hard to watch and be on the side of the game that you are passionate about, a game that you love,” Landry told “Voice of the Colts” Bob Lamey.
“For me football is at the top of my list of priorities. God gave me this talent and when you can’t utilize it, it’s kind of hard to be on the sideline as a contributor, as a competitor.”
The question comes up weekly in Chuck Pagano’s press conferences and Landry himself has the same inquiries.
And hopefully a possible answer on Sunday night?
“I’ve been ready to come back since I’ve got injured,” Landry said to Lamey. “Each day, each second, I’m like when’s the switch that says your 100 percent? Everyone knows that doesn’t happen and with an injury you have to nurse and rehab it to perfection.”
“For me, I’m looking forward to this week, to right now and to tomorrow. Each day is progress and I feel like this week is a great week for me to come back.”
Ever since Landry stepped onto the field for his first practice in a Colts uniform, his energy was evident.
It’s that passion that Colts fans are hoping to see very soon and Landry holds those same standards.
“I won’t step on the field and I won’t give anything less than 100 (percent). I’d be short-changing myself and I’d be short-changing my guys.”
