Colts Week Twelve Snap Counts vs. Jaguars

New, comments

Taking a look at the snap counts for the Colts offense, defense, and special teams from week twelve against the Jaguars.

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

The Colts defeated the Jaguars yesterday 23-3 in a game full of ups and downs.  The Colts were playing without Ahmad Bradshaw, Dwayne Allen, Greg Toler, and Gosder Cherilus - four starters who missed with injuries (and Bradshaw is out for the year, but this was the first game without him).  In the win, Indy notched their eleventh consecutive win against AFC South opponents and completed a sweep of the Jaguars for the second straight season.  The Colts improved to 7-4, have a 2.5 game lead in the AFC South, and all of that in a game in which the Colts weren't at the top of their game.  Let's take a look at the snap counts from the game for the Colts' offense, defense, and special teams units.

Offense:

Player Pos. Snaps Percent
Joe Reitz G 74 100%
Jack Mewhort G 74 100%
Jonotthan Harrison C 74 100%
Anthony Castonzo T 74 100%
Andrew Luck QB 74 100%
Reggie Wayne WR 69 93%
T.Y. Hilton WR 57 77%
Coby Fleener TE 56 76%
Hugh Thornton G 51 69%
Trent Richardson RB 41 55%
Jack Doyle TE 39 53%
Dan Herron RB 32 43%
Donte Moncrief WR 30 41%
Hakeem Nicks WR 26 35%
A.Q. Shipley C 21 28%
Xavier Nixon T 15 20%
Weslye Saunders TE 5 7%
Andrew Jackson LB 2 3%

Joe Reitz, filling in for the injured Gosder Cherilus, played every one of the snaps at right tackle.

Hugh Thornton was injured in the game and A.Q. Shipley filled in for him at right guard.

Donte Moncrief finally received more snaps than Hakeem Nicks, which is great to see.  It was evident just from watching the game yesterday, but it's still great to actually see on paper too.  Hopefully that's a trend that continues.

Trent Richardson didn't start the game but did see more snaps than Dan Herron (41 to 32).  From what I understand, Richardson not starting was more due to his illness during the week than anything else.

Jack Doyle saw 39 snaps (53%) on Sunday while filling in for Dwayne Allen.

The Colts used Xavier Nixon as an extra lineman at times on Sunday.  They also used Andrew Jackson as a blocking fullback for the second straight week.

Defense:

Player Pos. Snaps Percent
Mike Adams SS 54 100%
D'Qwell Jackson LB 53 98%
Vontae Davis CB 53 98%
Jerrell Freeman LB 53 98%
Erik Walden LB 44 81%
Bjoern Werner LB 42 78%
Ricky Jean Francois DE 39 72%
Darius Butler CB 37 69%
Cory Redding DE 36 67%
Sergio Brown FS 34 63%
Josh Gordy CB 32 59%
Arthur Jones DT 29 54%
LaRon Landry FS 20 37%
Jonathan Newsome LB 16 30%
Colt Anderson SS 14 26%
Montori Hughes NT 13 24%
Josh Chapman NT 12 22%
Loucheiz Purifoy CB 6 11%
Andy Studebaker LB 6 11%
Josh McNary LB 1 2%

Arthur Jones, returning once again from an injury, played 29 snaps (54%).

LaRon Landry saw his snaps increase from 8 a week ago (10%) to 20 this week (37%).  Could he be slowly working his way back toward the starting lineup, or is this the Colts' plan for him?  Only time will tell.

The Colts were down to two healthy cornerbacks at one point, forcing players like Colt Anderson (a safety) into corner roles on Sunday at times.
