Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich had his weekly conference call with the media today.

Reich confirmed today that second year pass rusher Kemoko Turay suffered a broken ankle and dislocation in Sunday’s game against the Chiefs. This means Turay will be out for the season and go on the teams injured reserve. It is a very hard one to swallow especially as Turay has been very good this year rushing the passer and was a big part of how the Colts defense was consistently able to pressure Patrick Mahomes. This could mean a bigger role now for rookie Ben Banogu.

Reich mentioned that the Colts defense game planned to play more man coverage. It was evident to see the defense play more man coverage, Reich mentioned it was used to try to disrupt the timing of Chiefs offense by trying to slow them down.

The amount of man coverage the Colts defense used was not typical for the team, as they usually are a zone heavy defense. However, the fact that the defense was able to adapt to match up with one of the best offenses in the league shows lots of promise heading forward.
