Indianapolis Colts' Chuck Pagano: 'Anthony Castonzo injury not serious'

Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano reveals that tackle Anthony Castonzo's injury wasn't as bad as first feared following an MRI scan.

Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano has revealed that an injury picked up by tackle Anthony Castonzo wasn't as bad as first feared.

Castonzo injured his medial cruciate ligament in the Colts' pre-season clash with the Cleveland Browns and could miss their season opener against the Oakland Raiders on September 8.

Pagano told reporters: "The MRI was pretty much negative. It wasn't as bad as anybody anticipated.

"You never want to lose anybody, and particularly the guy who's protecting the blind side of your quarterback."

Castonzo was drafted 22nd overall in the 2011 draft.
