New, comments
NFL: Indianapolis Colts at Dallas Cowboys Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

The Indianapolis Colts continued their preseason slate on Saturday night when they visited the Dallas Cowboys in North Texas.

Injuries have shaken things up quite a bit from last week, but roster bubble players continue to see quite a few snaps.

NOTES:

  • Bug Howard continues to receive significant playing time after playing 45 offensive snaps last week. As other receivers above him struggle or fail to stand out, the coaching staff continues to see what they have in Howard.
  • Darrell Daniels’ workload also continued at a good pace. He got work with the first-team offense on Saturday and stayed in the next group of players.
  • Deyshawn Bond continued his run with the first team at center. He stayed in just as long as the rest of the starting line and quarterback Scott Tolzien.
  • He may have entered last and played the shortest amount of time, but Stephen Morris’ ability to move the offense in a hurry means that he saw more snaps than QB2 Phillip Walker and only six less than Tolzien.
  • Running back Marlon Mack made his debut on Saturday and saw more snaps than any other Colts running back.
  • Wide receivers Marvin Bracy, Valdez Showers and Brian Riley’s (below) lack of playing time would indicate that they have an enormous hill to climb to make the roster. They’re obviously at the bottom of the depth chart, but they’d be getting more playing time if they were going to make the roster.
  • Overall, 33 players saw offensive snaps.

Jeremiah George LB 0 0% 3 4% 12 41%
Antonio Morrison LB 0 0% 3 4% 0 0%

NOTES:

  • Luke Rhodes and Anthony Walker are seeing the lion’s share of the snaps at inside linebacker. Walker has averaged 50.5 snaps so far this preseason, and Rhodes 37.5. Although the Colts have Antonio Morrison, Jon Bostic and Edwin Jackson ahead of the two on the depth chart, this indicates that the coaches really like what they see in Rhodes and Walker.
  • Quincy Wilson likely would’ve seen much more than five snaps but he hurt his knee and was forced to leave the game. According to George Bremer of The Herald Bulletin, the injury is to Wilson’s bursa sac and is not expected to keep him out too long.
  • T.J. Green saw value snaps and lined up all over. In his 31 snaps, he lined up in the slot, outside and at safety.
  • After not playing last week, Johnathan Hankins got in a decent workload.
  • Margus Hunt’s role is becoming evident. He played in 34% of special teams snaps compared to 20% of the defensive snaps. He got a blocked kick out of the night.
  • Overall, 35 players saw defensive snaps.
