NFL: Cincinnati Bengals at Indianapolis Colts Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

Each week will dive into the Colts unofficial depth chart and provide analysis. Here is a position by position look at the Colts week 8 depth chart.


Offense:

QB - Philip Rivers, Jacoby Brissett, Jacob Eason

RB - Jonathan Taylor, Nyheim Hines, Jordan Wilkins

WR - T.Y. Hilton, Daurice Fountain, Dezmon Patmon

TE - Jack Doyle, Trey Burton

LG - Quenton Nelson

C - Ryan Kelly, Danny Pinter

RG - Mark Glowinski

RT - Braden Smith, Le’Raven Clark

TE - Mo Alie-Cox, Noah Togiai

WR - Zach Pascal

WR - Marcus Johnson, Ashton Dulin

Analysis:

  • The biggest move on the offensive depth chart is the elevation of wide receiver Marcus Johnson from the practice squad. Johnson is listed as the starter at the third wide receiver spot.
  • With Johnson being elevated and him taking over the third wide receiver spot it means Daurice Fountain being moved down the depth chart to second listed player at the first wide receiver spot.

DE - Justin Houston, Ben Banogu

NT - Grover Stewart, Taylor Stallworth

UT - DeForest Buckner, Tyquan Lewis, Sheldon Day

DE - Denico Autry, Al-Quadin Muhammad, Ron’Dell Carter

CB - Rock Ya-Sin, T.J. Carrie

FS - Julian Blackmon, George Odum

SS - Khari Willis, Tavon Wilson

NCB - Kenny Moore II, Isaiah Rodgers

CB - Xavier Rhodes, Tremon Smith

Analysis:

  • The biggest move on the defensive depth chart is the elevation of defensive tackle Sheldon Day who has been on injured reserve for the start of the season due to a knee injury. Day goes into the depth chart as the third player listed at the defensive/under tackle (3 technique) position.
  • Another move on the depth chart was defensive end Ron’Dell Carter being moved from one defensive end spot to the other side at defensive end. Carter has been inactive ever since he was signed from the Dallas Cowboys in late September.
  • There are only four players now listed at the safety position after Ibraheim Campbell was released the day before the Bengals game.

Specialists:

P - Rigoberto Sanchez

K - Rodrigo Blankenship

LS - Luke Rhodes

KR - Isaiah Rodgers, Nyheim Hines

PR - Nyheim Hines, Isaiah Rodgers

Analysis:

  • No changes on special teams as the special teams depth chart remains the same as next week.
