Rookie tight end Justice Cunningham and rookie defensive lineman Montori Hughes also left practice briefly Monday. But Pagano said both players were suffering from cramps.
A Band of Tigers
Defensive lineman Ricky Jean Francois is one of four former LSU Tigers on the Colts defense. He said having former college teammates around will help him make the transition from San Francisco to Indianapolis this season.
Jean Francois also spent two seasons with Colts defensive coordinator Greg Manusky when he was in the same position with the 49ers.
"Oh, it boosts my confidence level a lot higher," Jean Francois said. "To have him here, he already knows how I play, he already knows what I'm about. And to have older guys in front of me, and especially to have a few of my older (college) teammates — Drake Nevis and to have possibly one of
the best safeties in the NFL, LaRon Landry, in the back — man, that just makes your job a lot easier. And that makes your confidence level a lot higher."
