NOTES:

  • I realize this was his first game back from a two-week injury stint, but Mack has got to start getting more snaps than he is. He is the biggest playmaker that they have in the backfield and it is beyond obvious. In two of his three games, he averaged 6.6 yards per touch. In the other game, he had an awful time getting anything to open up in the tranches and had just 8 yards on 7 touches.
  • It’s been interesting to see practice squad call-up Krishawn Hogan get snaps with the starters the last two weeks. He’s played 10 snaps the last two weeks. He did, however, leave the game on Sunday with a knee injury.
  • With Jack Doyle out with a concussion, it was a team effort this week at tight end. Doyle averages 93% of the offense snaps per week, but Brandon Williams played 66%, Darrell Daniels 64% and Henry Krieger-Coble played 9%.
  • Overall, 18 players saw offensive snaps.

NOTES:

  • Jon Bostic (100%) and Antonio Morrison (76%) continue to be the unquestioned starting inside linebackers, but it’s debatable whether they are the best options. Bostic has now played every defensive snap on the season. Rookie Anthony Walker was/is a promising competitor at the position, but missed the first four games with a hamstring injury, returned in Week 5 but then left the game and did not return after re-aggravating the hamstring injury. Jeremiah George has also been a key contributor and could feasibly give the duo a run for their money.
  • The Colts have mentioned that rookie Tarell Basham isn’t as far along as they’d like. That’s got to come from observing practice reps because he’s not getting much work on Sundays, averaging 19% of defensive snaps this year. John Simon and Jabaal Sheard are definitely the best options at outside linebacker but it bears monitoring if they get Basham more involved or not.
  • After starting at cornerback and playing 95% of the defensive snaps in Week 1, T.J. Green’s demise continues. He played exactly 1 snap in Weeks 2-4 and then played in just 2 on Sunday.
  • Overall, 21 players saw defensive snaps. That is the most for the team at any point this season.
