Indianapolis Colts receiver Michael Pittman Jr. is sidelined from offseason workouts due to a hip injury, coach Shane Steichen told reporters on Friday.

Steichen said the injury is minor. He said Pittman won’t return to the practice field until he is totally recovered.

Pittman, 25, had a career-best 99 receptions in 2022 in his third NFL season. He had 925 yards and four touchdowns.

In 2021, Pittman established career highs of 1,082 yards and six touchdowns. He caught 88 passes.

Overall, Pittman has 277 receptions for 2,510 yards and 11 touchdowns in 46 games (41 starts).

The Colts reportedly worked out receiver Breshad Perriman on Friday and plan to attempt to sign him. Perriman, 29, has played for four NFL teams and has 145 receptions for 2,343 yards and 16 touchdowns in 80 games (25 starts).

Perriman, a first-round pick of the Baltimore Ravens in 2015, played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last season and had nine catches for 110 yards and one touchdown in 11 games (three starts).

Steichen said three draft choices are nursing injuries. Receiver Josh Downs (third round) is battling a knee injury, tight end Will Mallory (fifth round) has a foot ailment and cornerback Darius Rush (fifth round) is dealing with a hamstring injury.
