Colts football is back!
No, we're serious this time. The Hall of Fame game was cancelled last week, but the Colts will actually play a game tonight. They're in Buffalo to take on the Bills, and while it's only a preseason game it will still be great to watch the team in action again.
There are several players who won't participate - including Andrew Luck, Frank Gore, and Robert Mathis - but there are still plenty of players to be keeping an eye on. The wide receiver depth (particularly Chester Rogers, Tevaun Smith, Josh Boyce, and Quan Bray), pass rushers (particularly Earl Okine, Trevor Bates, Ron Thompson, and Curt Maggitt), offensive line (particularly Denzelle Good at guard and the rookies), the tight end depth (particularly Erik Swoope), and the backup running backs (particularly Josh Ferguson) are all things to be looking for, and there are plenty of others too. It won't be the most exciting game - that's what happens when Scott Tolzien and Stephen Morris are your quarterbacks - but it's still Colts football.
