Pat Angerer 'frustrated' by injury-filled season

Rob Carr

Colts inside linebacker is attempting to move on from a frustrating injury-plagued season and recover in time for next season.

After racking up 148 total tackles in 2011, Pat Angerer entered 2012 as one of the top young linebackers in the league. His 2012 season didn't go as planned, however, as he broke a bone in his foot on the first play of the preseason.

Angerer battled the injury throughout the season. He missed the first five games of the season and didn't return to the starting lineup until Week 15. He finished the season with 28 combined tackles, calling the year a 10 on a frustration scale of one-to-10.

"It was really, really frustrating. Guys have played with this injury before, but just not being able to play like I know I'm capable of was very hard," Angerer said, via Colts.com.

Now, Angerer said he is working to make sure his foot heals so he can move on and get better. He said he goes to the team's facility for treatment and to work out every day during the week. Even though he said it will probably be a while before he can start running and competing, Angerer doesn't expect the injury to keep him down.

"A lot of people have overcome things a lot worse than this," Angerer said. "It's nothing I can't come back from."
