Does Vinatieri Injury Open Door for Vanderjagt’s comeback

The Colts organization released a statement Friday that kicker Adam Vinatieri underwent surgery on his right hip to help, "Relieve nagging discomfort, which had existed for more than a year." 

While the organization insists that he will be ready to go for the start of the regular season, Colts fans might be justified in being a little worried. 

Hip surgery for a kicker is no insignificant or minor event, and the Colts organization has a history of not revealing the entire truth regarding the significance of a player's injuries. 

The reality of the situation is that it is very likely that Adam Vinatieri could return from hip surgery, have a long rehabilitation process, suffer complications and setbacks, and then re-injure or aggravate the injury during the course of the season, leaving the team and its fans without a proven kicker on their roster.
