Colts Week Two Snap Counts vs. Eagles

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

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

Last night, the Colts lost to the Philadelphia Eagles on a last-second field goal, 30-27.  There's a lot to talk about with the game, but it's also notable to see how much each player for the Colts was playing.

Let's take a look at the snap counts from Monday night's game for the Colts against the Eagles:


Player Pos. Snaps Percent
Gosder Cherilus T 72 100%
Hugh Thornton G 72 100%
Jack Mewhort G 72 100%
A.Q. Shipley C 72 100%
Anthony Castonzo T 72 100%
Andrew Luck QB 72 100%
Reggie Wayne WR 58 81%
Dwayne Allen TE 58 81%
Coby Fleener TE 52 72%
T.Y. Hilton WR 49 68%
Ahmad Bradshaw RB 44 61%
Jack Doyle TE 36 50%
Trent Richardson RB 30 42%
Hakeem Nicks WR 29 40%
Donte Moncrief WR 2 3%
Mario Harvey FB 1 1%
Lance Louis G 1 1%

Reggie Wayne once again saw the most snaps of for a Colts wide receiver, though the percentage of his snaps decreased by 12% this week from week one.  What is starting to me is that T.Y. Hilton only saw 68% of the snaps.  Dwayne Allen saw just as many snaps as Reggie, and him and Coby Fleener both saw more snaps than all but one wide receiver for the Colts.  Think about that for a minute.  Furthermore, Jack Doyle was in on half of the snaps, seeing more playing time than the third receiver, Hakeem Nicks.

For the second straight week, Ahmad Bradshaw saw more snaps than Trent Richardson (44 compared to 30).  I'd be interested in seeing what the snap counts were after Richardson's second fumble, though, because it seemed like after that he didn't see much action.  Either way, I think it's obvious to everyone (and the Colts coaches) that Bradshaw is the better fit for the Colts offense, and they're giving him the most snaps of any running back accordingly.  Smart move.


Player Pos. Snaps Percent
D'Qwell Jackson LB 68 100%
Mike Adams SS 68 100%
Vontae Davis CB 68 100%
Greg Toler CB 68 100%
Darius Butler CB 63 93%
Josh McNary LB 62 91%
LaRon Landry FS 54 79%
Bjoern Werner LB 51 75%
Cory Redding DE 49 72%
Erik Walden LB 43 63%
Ricky Jean Francois DE 35 51%
Josh Chapman NT 31 46%
Montori Hughes NT 27 40%
Zach Kerr DT 20 29%
Jonathan Newsome LB 17 25%
Arthur Jones DT 13 19%
Henoc Muamba LB 6 9%
Josh Gordy CB 5 7%

There's really not a ton here to note.  The fact that Darius Butler was in on 93% of the snaps gives you a good indication as to the type of defense the Colts were playing, and overall I thought Butler did a good job, as he usually does.


Player Pos. Snaps Percent
Mario Harvey FB 27 84%
Colt Anderson SS 27 84%
Andy Studebaker LB 25 78%
Josh Gordy CB 23 72%
Sergio Brown FS 21 66%
Loucheiz Purifoy CB 21 66%
Jack Doyle TE 21 66%
Dan Herron RB 20 62%
Griff Whalen WR 16 50%
Donte Moncrief WR 16 50%
Pat McAfee P 15 47%
Zach Kerr DT 13 41%
Josh McNary LB 11 34%
Henoc Muamba LB 10 31%
Matt Overton LS 9 28%
Cory Redding DE 8 25%
D'Qwell Jackson LB 7 22%
Bjoern Werner LB 7 22%
Ricky Jean Francois DE 7 22%
Mike Adams SS 6 19%
Gosder Cherilus T 5 16%
Hugh Thornton G 5 16%
Jack Mewhort G 5 16%
Lance Louis G 5 16%
Jamon Meredith T 5 16%
Adam Vinatieri K 5 16%
Jonathan Newsome LB 4 12%
Josh Chapman NT 4 12%
Dwayne Allen TE 4 12%

Last week, Josh McNary played on 86% of the special teams snaps.  On Monday night, since he was starting at inside linebacker, that percentage dropped to just 34% of the special teams snaps.  Still a notable number, but it dropped significantly since he was in the starting lineup (which makes total sense, too).

Mario Harvey and Colt Anderson again saw the most special teams snaps for any Colt, the same as last week.
