Reitz saw action in 14 games, making three starts in 2013. He helped pave the way for the Colts to rush for 1,743 yards, their highest single-season total since 2006. Reitz also blocked for quarterback Andrew Luck to throw for 3,822 passing yards, bringing his career total to 8,196, which is the most by a quarterback in his first two seasons.
Reitz was originally claimed by the Colts off waivers from the Miami Dolphins on September 8, 2010. For his career, he has appeared in 34 games and has made 20 starts.
