Colts TE Eric Ebron back running routes at camp after groin surgery

Indianapolis Colts tight end Eric Ebron is inching closer and closer to being 100 percent for the team after coming back from groin surgery.

According to Indy Star reporter Zak Keefer, the Colts were able to get Ebron back on the practice field and he was running routes.

“A good sign for the Colts 6 weeks ahead of training camp: Eric Ebron, who had groin surgery after the season and missed most of spring workouts, is out here running routes at full speed during minicamp.”

Concluding a disappointing four seasons with the Detroit Lions after being selected with the 10th pick in the 2014 NFL draft, Ebron hit his stride in 2018.

Ebron tallied 66 receptions for 750 yards and 13 touchdowns, making himself one of Andrew Luck’s top targets.

The Pro-Bowl tight end tweeted on April 4 that he successfully went through surgery and has since been getting up to speed.

Indianapolis improved greatly on offense this offseason, signing former Carolina Panthers wide receiver Devin Funchess and former Kansas City Chiefs running back Spencer Ware.

The team also selected Ohio State wide receiver Parris Campbell in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

To go along with those additions, the Colts already have Pro-Bowl wide receiver T.Y.Hilton, running back Marlon Mack, tight end Jack Doyle, and Ebron.

Signs are looking good for the Colts’ offense as Ebron continues his progress to start in Week 1.
