When the Colts head back into Lucas Oil Stadium this Saturday night, fans are going to want to make sure they have the Colts Mobile App downloaded.

In what is normally the more ‘regular season like’ preseason game, Saturday’s contest will be a great chance to view the game from a number of different angels.

The Colts Mobile App provides in stadium cameras for fans attending the game, a live radio stream to ‘Voice of the Colts’ Bob Lamey and live stats.

This part of the app is another gameday feature that goes along with the normal amenities.

Already included is a fan zone app that offers several different options from photos of the day, the ability to connect with fans and how to view parking and game day traffic around Lucas Oil.

Kerwynn Williams catching the eye of important people

Posted by Kevin Bowen on – 9:00 am

With Delone Carter being traded earlier this week, a few more reps have opened up at the running back position.

One back who has gotten a ton of reps for the Colts this training camp is Kerwynn Williams.

The 2013 seventh-round draft pick has made the most of those chances.

“Every time he touches the ball, he seems to make things happen,” head coach Chuck Pagano said earlier this week. “Whether it’s returning kicks, returning punts, lining up at tailback, he’s done a lot of good things.

“He’s got good vision, quick feet. He’s a tough kid, a quick study, quick learner. He’s a guy that has caught everybody’s eye and making a case for himself to make this roster.”

Kerwynn Williams’ Stats

  Bills Giants
Touches 12 14
Yards 126 72

 

Against the Bills, Williams returned five kicks for 89 yards, and touched the ball via rush, catch and punt return an additional seven times.

The following week against the Giants, Williams had a kick return for 22 yards and two punt returns for 21 yards.

Those number of reps should not dwindle as the Colts head into the final preseason games of 2013.

“He’s one of the guys that has been somewhat opportunistic as far as getting an opportunity to make a play and of course making the play,” offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton said of Williams.

“He’s been able to create his own yards. Even in our scrimmages over the course of training camp, he shows a knack for making a guy miss in the hole and getting more out of plays that in most cases you would think we’re starting to break down. He’s done well for himself.”

Williams was very politically correct when talking about his first NFL training camp.

He feels as if he’s improving each week with the biggest challenge coming with the multiple opposing defenses and picking them up in pass blocking situations.

As a late round draft pick fighting to secure his spot on the 53-man roster it’s pretty clear that Williams play alone is doing enough talking.

“I’m definitely trying to do the best that I can and hopefully I can continue to do that and earn that praise.”

Colts Daily Headlines: August 23rd Edition

Posted by Kevin Bowen on – 8:49 am

The Colts are now just over 24 hours away a matchup with the Cleveland Browns at Lucas Oil Stadium. Today’s news looks at the return of Pat Angerer, LaRon Landry, a question and answer session with Cory Redding and Reggie Wayne always working.

Take a look below at the top pieces from Friday, August 23rd.  

Colts ILB Pat Angerer: ‘I need to hit somebody, get hit’

By: Phillip B. Wilson, Indy Star

Colts 2011 leading tackler Pat Angerer will make his debut in 2013 this weekend against the Cleveland Browns.

“I need to get out there, get some snaps, hit somebody, get hit, get back into the fast pace of the game,” Angerer said after Thursday’s practice.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano reiterated a play-it-smart approach with Angerer’s season debut but hopes to get the defender 15 to 20 plays against Cleveland in a 7 p.m. kickoff at Lucas Oil Stadium.

“It’s felt better than all of last year,” Angerer said, when asked if he trusted the foot. “I don’t really even notice it. Everything feels good. I’ve had that, where I didn’t trust it. Now, I don’t even notice it.”

In a shortened week, Thursday marked the final media availability prior to Saturday’s game versus the Browns.

That meant Chuck Pagano addressed the injury news heading into week three of the preseason and the headliner came with LaRon Landry expecting to make his Colts debut.

“It’s been a long time,” Landry said after Thursday’s practice. “Quite anxious. Hopefully I won’t overdo it when I get out there.”

Landry returned to the practice for the first time this week after injuring his left knee Aug. 5. His intent was to make certain he was sufficiently healed and ready for the Sept. 8 regular-season opener against Oakland.

“That’s my whole mindset, trying not to rush it back and really get healthy so I can sustain at least a full game before going into a regular-season game,” he said.

Not Just Luck in Indianapolis

Monday Morning Quarterback has had some Colts flavor lately and another comes today with a Q and A featuring Cory Redding.

Redding was peppered with questions about the Colts defense and the mindset looking to be created in Indianapolis.

Colts’ Wayne still has plenty to prove

By: Tom James, The Terre Haute Tribune

When Reggie Wayne was asked on Thursday what advice he had for younger players “fighting for a spot” on the Colts roster, No. 87 wanted to make a point before answering the question.

“First let’s make it clear, I’m always fighting for a spot. Every year they’re going to try to find somebody to replace me. Now it’s up to me to make that a hard decision. So I don’t go out there with the mind frame that I always got a spot sewed up because that’s when you go out and you loaf and then you got somebody else going out there 100 miles per hour,” he said after Thursday’s practice.

“My whole mindset is I’m out there trying to set the tone from what Reggie Wayne can do, no matter what the situation is. We all know what the truth is. This is a tough business. You’re not only going out there and playing for the Colts at this point in time, you’re going out there and playing for 32 teams. You want to go out there and put your best audition tape. You want to be able to put your best performance out there. If you don’t, you get voted off [the island]. It’s just like ‘The Voice’ or ‘American Idol.’ So you want to go out there and do the best you possibly can.”
