Throughout the course of the season, Colts.com will run a “Newcomer of the Week” following each regular season game. With the Colts having an influx of the newcomers this season here’s a look at the “Newcomer of the Week” from St. Louis.
When Pep Hamilton was named Colts offensive coordinator earlier this year, he was looking for a versatile fullback to fit his scheme.
Havili had three catches (career-high) for 25 receiving yards on Sunday and is showing how he can impact the receiving game.
Along with being a versatile cog on offense, Havili is also playing a variety of roles on special teams.
On the season, Havili has 16 offensive touches for 74 yards along with his top duty of blocking for the Colts running backs.
Havili has four special teams tackles and a forced fumble in 2013.
Following the loss on Sunday, Havili was ready to turn his attention to Thursday night.
“It was frustrating to say the least. We just couldn’t get things going,” Havili said after the game.
“I think with a short week, it’s an advantage for us to put this loss to rest, learn from the mistakes and get ready for Thursday, very excited to get this sour taste out of my mouth.”
Other Newcomers of Note:
–Running back Daniel Herron saw his first offensive action with the Colts and he had one catch for 57 yards. Herron mainly contributes on special teams and he had one kick return for 13 yards on Sunday.
–Outside linebacker Bjoern Werner played in his second game back from injury and had three tackles (one for loss) while playing a total of 23 snaps on Sunday.
–Defensive tackle Montori Hughes dressed for his second career NFL game and contributed three tackles in just 17 snaps.
