ROOKIE RECAP: WEEK 13

Posted by Kevin Bowen on December 3, 2012 – 10:03 am

With a plethora of rookie players on the Colts roster, each week Colts.com will take a look at how the first-year players performed.

Dwayne Allen, TE: Allen had just two catches on Sunday but they came at critical times. His 40-yard screen pass early in the second quarter came with the Colts down 17-7 and led to Coby Fleener’s touchdown. Allen’s second catch, a 10-yarder, came on the game-winning touchdown drive.

Vick Ballard, RB: Ballard had nine carries for 41 yards on Sunday to go along with three receptions for 21 yards. Ballard’s 11-yard touchdown run to begin the second half scoring was his first career NFL rushing touchdown.

LaVon Brazill, RB: Brazill scored his first career NFL touchdown on Sunday as he slipped past the defense for a 42-yard score late in the fourth quarter. Brazill leads the Colts with 17.8 yards per catch.

Coby Fleener, TE: Fleener was back in the lineup after a shoulder injury that kept him out since Oct. 28. Just like Brazill, Fleener had only one catch but it was immense. Fleener hauled in a 26-yard touchdown in the second quarter for his first NFL score.

T.Y. Hilton, WR: Hilton recorded yet another 100-yard receiving day (on six catches). Hilton now has four games of at least 100 receiving yards on the season and his 588 receiving yards ranks third on the team. Hilton’s 60-yard first quarter grab was the longest reception of the season for the Colts.

Andrew Luck, QB: Luck was 24-of-54 for 391 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions on Sunday afternoon. It was an eventful afternoon for Luck who led a 75- and 80-yard touchdown drive in the final five minutes.

Delano Howell, S: Howell was signed on Tuesday and saw his first action in a Colts uniform, playing on special teams on Sunday.

Rookie wide receiver Nate Palmer, tight end Dominique Jones, and offensive tackle Bradley Sowell were inactive against the Lions.

    What a game. I was on the edge of my seat like a lot of you folks and it came down to one play. We lost one game on one play which made us 6 – 1 with a one score game, this time we were on the winning side of the ledger! I was heading to the local wild wings to watch the game in my Colts get up, It would have been so cool to scream as loud as I did in my home on the final play of the game. I’m so happy for our team and what they stand for. I couldn’t be any prouder of the men in blue! Go colts all day, Chuck strong all the way baby..
