As the Indianapolis Colts prepare for their Week 3 matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles the personnel availability for both teams is not pretty. Each squad faces a loss of multiple heavy contributors, which ironically also will feature the return of Carson Wentz for his 2018 debut.
The Colts won’t have Jack Doyle, Anthony Castonzo or Marlon Mack against a very stout Philly front seven, but the Eagles’ backfield is coming in with a depleted backfield and receiver corps which may be a lot for Wentz to deal with in his first game back.
Today we welcome Kevin Hickey (Colts Wire) to dive into what the Colts have left for them to throw at the Eagles on both sides of the ball, and Michael Kist (Bleeding Green Nation) also joins in for the second half of the show to take a look at the other side of the equation.
The Colts certainly have their hands full this Sunday, and will likely see tight end Erik Swoope elevated to the active roster in place of Doyle, and we should expect Margus Hunt to pull double duty with, both, Denico Autry and Hassan Ridgeway already confirmed to be OUT in this one.
Can the Colts defense find success by going after the Eagles’ offensive strengths? Will Jim Schwartz be able to out scheme Frank Reich considering their familiarity with each other’s respective tendencies? There are so many questions to be answered for this matchup and we look at all of these situations and much more in our Week 3 primer to get you all set for this weekend’s game.
