OFFENSE

ROOKIES

Parris Campbell did not play on Sunday as he recovers from a fractured hand. He is expected to be out at least 2-3 more weeks.

Ashton Dulin took three offensive snaps but was not targeted. He had a special teams tackle and downed another one of Rigoberto Sanchez’s punts deep in Dolphins territory.

SECOND YEAR

Nyheim Hines did see an uptick in usage on Sunday. He took 30 of 70 offensive snaps for 43% of the opportunities, only two less than Marlon Mack. He carried the ball 3 times for 14 yards and finished second on the team with 4 receptions on 7 targets for 30 yards.

Jordan Wilkins suffered an injury in the game that reduced his opportunities to 7 of 70 offensive snaps or only 10%. He carried the ball 3 times for 20 yards, a 6.7 yards per carry action and continued to look like he was shot out of a cannon as he hit the line of scrimmage.

Deon Cain was released prior to Sunday’s game and re-signed to the Colts practice squad early this week.

In one of Zach Pascal’s biggest opportunities as the team’s de facto top receiver, he wasn’t able to do much. In 69 of 70 offensive snaps, Pascal caught 2 passes on 7 targets for 26 yards. He remains the team’s top receiver, despite this missed opportunity, but will need to rebound if the Colts offense expects to recover.

Second-year tight end Mo Alie-Cox took 22 of 70 offensive snaps, or 31%. He was targeted once in the end zone but was unable to come down with the ball.


DEFENSE

Rock Ya-Sin took 65 of 66 defensive snaps and gathered 4 tackles and a pass defensed. He looked much better in coverage and seems to have put his dismal performance against the Broncos two weeks ago behind him.

Linebacker Bobby Okereke took 19 of 66 defensive snaps and made 4 total tackles. His use waxes and wanes depending upon the opponent and the health of Anthony Walker and Darius Leonard.

Safety Khari Willis took 60 of 66 defensive snaps and finished second on the team with 8 total tackles, including 1 tackle for a loss. He has officially taken over as the team’s starting safety next to Malik Hooker. Clayton Geathers only saw the field for 6 defensive snaps.

Corner Marvell Tell took 47 of 66 defensive snaps, made 3 tackles and defended a pass. His impact is still somewhat inconsistent, which is typical for rookie defensive backs, but he has certainly come a long way and continues to earn the right to get more playing time — at least while Pierre Desir is absent.

Defensive end Ben Banogu took 16 of 66 defensive snaps but tallied no stats. In what some fans thought might be a breakout game, Banogu was given limited opportunities and failed to get anything going.

Linebacker E.J. Speed did not play.
