This week’s “Back-Up of the Game” presented by Venyu is safety Colt Anderson.
With Mike Adams out on Sunday due to a hamstring injury and Clayton Geathers also sidelined (knee sprain), Anderson was thrust into starting duty.
Colt Anderson finished Sunday with four total tackles in playing 84 of the team’s 88 defensive snaps.
Throw in Anderson’s special teams role of playing 29 snaps and the veteran safety saw the most playing time of any Colts player on Sunday.
The one play Anderson would definitely love to have back on Sunday came in an onside kick attempt with three minutes left.
It looked as if a diving Anderson had the onside kick in his grasp for a split second before the ball bounded away for the Saints to recover.
From the sound of it, Anderson will likely be back in his primary role of special teams captain next week.
Adams told the FOX broadcast crew that he will return to the field next Monday night when the Colts (3-4) travel to Carolina (6-0).
