Posted by Kevin Bowen on November 6, 2013 – 8:38 am

The Colts will head back onto the practice field this afternoon in preparation for the St. Louis Rams. Today’s news looks at hazing around the NFL and the extra attention Colts receivers will be receiving with T.Y. Hilton’s stellar play.

Take a look below at the top pieces from Wednesday, November 6th.

Indianapolis Colts LB Erik Walden on hazing: ‘We have a no-nonsense policy’

By: Stephen Holder, Indy Star

With the hazing news around the Miami Dolphins locker room, talk is around the NFL on whether this is prevalent with other teams.

It occurs in every NFL locker room — yes, even with the Indianapolis Colts. But here in Indy, there are a few, well, subtle differences from the despicable accusations being levied against Miami guard Richie Incognito for his treatment of teammate Jonathan Martin.

If you’re a rookie here, you had better not forget the sunflower seeds. That’s a must. And you’d be wise to carry veterans’ helmets and shoulder pads to the locker room after practice.

But that’s as deep as it gets in the Colts’ locker room, according to players and coaches. More troublesome hazing has long been considered off limits, going back to at least to the earliest days of former coach Tony Dungy, who was hired in 2002.

“Nothing to the extreme where you have a person pulling a no-show, messing with their confidence or anything of that nature,” outside linebacker Erik Walden said. “I don’t really (believe) in that.

“(We have) a no-nonsense policy. We don’t feel like we have to do that to your younger players to get a point across.”

Who’s going to help T.Y. Hilton at receiver?

After a second-half to remember, the attention will certainly grow for T.Y. Hilton.

How will that affect the rest of the Colts receivers?

Things aren’t going to get easier for Hilton. He’ll likely start seeing some double teams as opponents try to slow him down.

That comes with success.

“Everybody else’s game has got to pick up because [teams are] going to find ways to not let [Hilton] wreck the game,” Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. “We know that and certainly our opponents are going to do everything they can to make sure he doesn’t have seven catches for 121 yards and three touchdowns.”
