As the Indianapolis Colts prepare for their Week 5 matchup with the New England Patriots, their injury situation is certainly a cause for concern. They’re missing their top tight end in Jack Doyle, the unquestioned defensive MVP, Darius Leonard, is in a walking boot during walk-throughs thus far and several more are possibly on the outs in this short week.
The Colts (1-3) could not need this game more at this point in the season. They could potentially give their season a massive boost with a victory, but it could also put them in a very deep hole if they can’t pull off the upset in Foxboro.
Today we also touch on the progression of the Colts’ PFF grades through Week 4. They had some players sitting in the top-10 of their respective positions just last week, but despite some of them coming back to Earth, the team still has some very impressive grades to show off.
With such a young roster, this team is extremely competitive through four weeks of play. They have a couple positions in which they are getting a high level of production and execution that they haven’t in a long time. This upstart roster obviously has some weaknesses, but they also have an infectious energy that appears to rub off on to their teammates throughout the game.
Who are the biggest PFF risers for the Colts, and who slid down the ladder the most? We answer those questions and mix in a little bit of strategy as well on today’s Colts Cast.
