Five Things Learned: Colts/Broncos

Posted by Kevin Bowen on – 8:13 am

INDIANAPOLIS – For a second straight week, the Colts could not make the plays in crunch time to earn a victory.

Denver’s (2-0) attacking defense showed up quite large on Sunday, helping the Broncos to a 34-20 victory over the visiting Colts.

The Colts (0-2) will now return home to Lucas Oil Stadium to take on the San Diego Chargers next Sunday at 4:25 p.m.

Here are FIVE THINGS LEARNED.

VON MILLER IS A MENACE – Before Sunday, Von Miller had no sacks in three career games versus the Colts. That changed on Sunday. Miller had three sacks, three quarterback hits and a game-clinching strip sack with less than two minutes remaining.

FRIENDLY FIRE BITES COLTS – Defensively, the Colts hung tough with more injuries piling up. It was the offense committing two very costly turnovers, both being returned for touchdowns, ultimately making the difference in the two-score margin.

EARLY DOWN STRUGGLES CONTINUE– For the Colts to have success on Sunday, they knew winning early downs would be key. Against Denver, the Colts averaged less than a yard on first down, with penalties not helping them stay ahead of the chains.

INJURIES STILL MOUNTING – It sounds like a recording for the Colts this season—secondary players leaving the game due to injuries. On Sunday it was being played again with Darius Butler (hamstring) and safety Clayton Geathers (undisclosed) exiting in the first half. Those two can be added to the likes of Vontae Davis, Patrick Robinson and T.J. Green already missing in Week Two.

TIME TO START DIGGING – Two weeks into 2016 and the Colts are two games down in the AFC South. Houston leads the division at 2-0. The Colts will get their first look at the AFC South in Week Four, when they start a stretch of three divisional games in four weeks.

Posted by coltsindianapolis on September 13, 2016 – 7:12 pm

The Indianapolis Colts today signed cornerback Tay Glover-Wright and safety Lee Hightower to the practice squad. 

Glover-Wright, 6-0, 180 pounds, participated in the Colts 2016 offseason program before being waived during finals cuts on September 3.

In 2014, he spent time on the Green Bay Packers practice squad.

 

Hightower, 6-2, 200 pounds, spent time on the Colts practice squad earlier this season. Collegiately, he played in 20 games (seven starts) in two seasons (2014-15) at the University of Houston and finished with 65 tackles (40 solo), 0.5 tackles for loss, two interceptions, five passes defensed and one forced fumble. Prior to transferring to Houston, Hightower started 11-of-15 games at Boise State from 2011-12 and registered 56 tackles, 4.0 tackles for loss, one interception and five passes defensed.

“Back-Up of the Game” is running back Robert Turbin

Posted by Kevin Bowen on September 12, 2016 – 8:15 am

This week’s “Back-Up of the Game” presented by Venyu is running back Robert Turbin.

We know Frank Gore’s backup for the 2016 season.

On Sunday, Robert Turbin carried the immediate load behind Gore, filling in on third downs and providing some key first-down conversions.

Turbin had two catches for 15 yards on Sunday and also converted a third-and-one with a four-yard carry in the third quarter.

It was that opening drive of the second half where Turbin moved the sticks on a pair of third downs.

After driving ahead on a third-and-one, Turbin then took a shorter pass on a third-and-10 and darted ahead 12 yards to keep the drive alive.

Besides Turbin, the Colts also received some nice production from undrafted running back Josh Ferguson. The rookie from Illinois had two catches for 26 yards and played a bunch in the second half.

Obviously, Gore is still the feature back in Indianapolis, but the Colts will continue to rely on Turbin and Ferguson to keep the 33-year old fresh over the course of a 16-game season.
