Colts Head Coach Frank Reich Week 8 Post-Game Conference Call

NFL: Indianapolis Colts at Detroit Lions Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich had his weekly conference call Monday with the media and gave several updates.

Frank Reich opened his conference call with the usual injury update. Wide receiver TY Hilton left the game early with a groin injury and Reich said the team will watch Hilton this week. Wide receiver Ashton Dulin left the game with a knee injury and Reich said the team will monitor it this week. Cornerback Rock Ya-Sin left the game after a head injury which appeared to be a concussion. Reich said that Ya-Sin cleared the concussion protocol pretty quickly and should be fine going forward.

Frank Reich mentioned that running back Jonathan Taylor had a slight ankle injury that the team found out after the game. The injury to Taylor could be a reason why the team led on Wilkins more as the game went on instead of Taylor, but with Reich saying the team didn’t know about the injury until after the game goes against that. Good news is that if Taylor is limited then Wilkins has already shown that he can fill in for him in a pinch and lead the rushing attack.

Frank Reich mentioned about how confident he was in the Colts young wide receiver group. He also went on to talk about the big strides they have been making and the growing chemistry with Philip Rivers. The Colts young wide receivers have needed to and will continue to need to step up going forward especially in the absence of Parris Campbell due to injury and with TY Hilton struggling.
