New Colts LT Eric Fisher isn’t putting timeline on his return from torn Achilles tendon

INDIANAPOLIS — The man who knows Eric Fisher’s left Achilles tendon better than anybody else isn’t putting any timelines on his recovery.

Fisher, 30, tore his Achilles in Kansas City’s AFC championship game win over Buffalo, and with the two-time Pro Bowler expected to replace Anthony Castonzo at left tackle on one of the NFL’s best offensive lines this season, that tendon is going to be the subject of a lot of questions in the weeks and months leading up to – and perhaps during – the 2021 season.

But Fisher, who met with Indianapolis media following a rehab session Thursday, prefers to keep the details of his recovery to himself.

“What I can tell you is I’m a big ‘control what you can control’ kind of guy,” Fisher said. “Obviously, I’d like to snap my fingers and have a perfect Achilles again, but you know, that’s not the case. Obviously, the club feels good with where I’m at, I’m feeling good, but any other questions about my Achilles, I’ll leave up to Chris Ballard or Coach (Frank Reich).”

The Colts themselves haven’t publicly put a timeline on Fisher’s recovery, but Ballard and the medical staff clearly felt comfortable with their evaluation of the injury, given that Indianapolis handed Fisher a one-year deal worth up to $9.4 million last week even though there were other potential starters, like former Bears tackle Charles Leno, on the market.
