The Colts picked up Trent Cole this past offseason to bolster their pass rush, and though he’ll be good to go Sunday fellow pass rusher Robert Mathis is a bit more of a question mark.

Mathis is trying to come back from Achilles surgery at age 34 and has been targeting Week 1 for his return. He participated in practice on a limited basis Wednesday. He was activated off the team’s PUP list on Aug. 25th.

Player Pos Injury Participation Wednesday
Vick Ballard RB Hamstring DNP
Greg Toller CB Neck DNP
Nate Irving LB Knee LP
Robert Mathis LB Achilles LP
Sheldon Price CB Concussion LP

Colts Mathis says Bills more ready to play

Posted by Chris Brown on August 12, 2013 – 1:14 am

Indianapolis OLB Robert Mathis had no excuse for why the Bills came out and ran the ball well early with C.J. Spiller and ultimately outplayed the Colts in a 44-20 preseason Week 1 victory.

Mathis admitted that the Bills played with a greater sense of purpose than the Colts.

“They came out with I’d say, more of a sense of urgency than we did today, so it’s just something we have to work on,” said Mathis. “We just have to do what we do better, more so than what they do. That’s kind of what the preseason is all about, working on our timing and how we adjust on the fly.”
