Indianapolis Colts rookie tight end Andrew Ogletree appeared to be on his way toward carving out a role on the depth chart but will miss the entirety of the season after tearing his ACL during joint training camp practice Wednesday.
Ogletree, who went down in a non-contact fashion, got the news Wednesday night that he suffered a torn ACL. He took to Twitter to give a small statement following the news.
Everything happens for a reason. I appreciate all the love and prayers sent my way! Just another chapter to the book!

Ogletree was one of the stars of training camp through the first three weeks and had a touchdown reception called back due to a penalty in the preseason opener against the Buffalo Bills.
Ogletree was on his way to solidifying a role in the tight end room, but now they may carry just three tight ends with Mo Alie-Cox, Kylen Granson and fellow draft pick Jelani Woods.
Ogletree will have a long road ahead of him, but he’ll be gearing up to make another strong impression this time next year.
