OFFENSE

ROOKIES

Parris Campbell did not play. He did return to the walk through practice on Monday.

Ashton Dulin took one offensive snap but was not targeted.

SECOND YEAR

Nyheim Hines took 24 of 68 offensive snaps. He carried the ball 3 times for 11 yards and finished with 3 receptions on 4 targets for 24 yards. Given that Marlon Mack left the game early due to injury and Jordan Wilkins was sitting out, and also given all of the injuries to Colts receivers, it is somewhat surprising that Hines hasn’t seen a bigger role in the offense.

Jordan Wilkins did not play due to an ankle injury. The Colts are hoping he can return to join Jonathan Williams as the primary ball carriers while Marlon Mack recovers from a hand fracture.

Deon Cain plays for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Zach Pascal continues to be relatively quiet during his run as the team’s de facto top receiver. In 66 of 68 offensive snaps, Pascal caught 2 passes on 6 targets for 17 yards. This was an even lower statistical impact than the one he made last week. Granted, he could have had a long pass down the right sideline but the officials didn’t call defensive pass interference and instead the ball bounced off of his hands and ended up with the Jaguars for an interception.

Second-year tight end Mo Alie-Cox took 23 of 68 offensive snaps. He was not targeted in the passing game (neither was Jack Doyle surprisingly).


DEFENSE

Rock Ya-Sin took 29 of 63 defensive snaps and gathered 6 tackles, including a tackle for loss, an interception and a pass defensed. After a very difficult showing against the Broncos earlier this year, Ya-Sin has seemingly turned a corner. Unfortunately, he also suffered an ankle injury that limited his impact on the game and could threaten his chance to play on Thursday.

Linebacker Bobby Okereke took 22 of 63 defensive snaps and made 2 tackles. He had a busy day on special teams as well. On a punt, Okereke didn’t realize the ball was coming down in his area and allowed it to ricochet off of his leg. This resulted in excellent field position for the Jaguars in the second half. He also picked off a Nick Foles pass on a two-point conversion attempt and ran it back for two points for the Colts.

Corner Shakial Taylor took 15 of 63 defensive snaps and did not tally a defensive stat.

Safety Khari Willis took 37 of 63 defensive snaps and gathered 3 tackles. Unfortunately, he also suffered a concussion stopping a Jaguars run short of a first down. He has already been ruled out for Thursday night’s game.

Corner Marvell Tell took 54 of 63 defensive snaps, which is the most of any defensive player for the game, and make 5 tackles and defended 3 passes. One of those three passes would have been in impressive sideline interception but Tell couldn’t bring the ball in. There is little doubt that Tell’s development this season has relegated former second round pick Quincy Wilson to the inactive list for weeks.

Defensive end Ben Banogu took 16 of 63 defensive snaps and gathered one tackle. He has not yet had the breakout performance that fans thought he might after flashing some ability as a rusher when Kemoko Turay went down for the season.

Linebacker E.J. Speed did not play.
