Colts vs Redskins: Week two snap counts While it would be unwise to draw any major conclusions from just two weeks worth of football Youth Ryan Kelly Jersey
, there are certainly some patterns starting to emerge in terms of playing time. The Colts had a much more successful outing against the Redskins, and there are some interesting things to be gleaned from the breakdown of snaps, so lets take a look at them and see what we can discover.Offense#PlayerPositionOffensive SnapsPercentDefensive SnapsPercentSpecial Teams SnapsPercent#PlayerPositionOffensive SnapsPercentDefensive SnapsPercentSpecial Teams SnapsPercentNotesAs was the case last week, the Colts had an entire game with the same lineup of offensive linemen played from start to finish. The interior of the line, Nelson, Kelly, and Slauson have done pretty well Youth Quenton Nelson Jersey
, and made it easier on Haeg and Clark on the outside. No doubt the line has received help from tight ends and schematically, but continuity is not something the Colts have had in recent memory, and they have been getting some degree of it this season so far.Speaking of help from the tight ends, Jack Doyle played 59 offensive snaps on Sunday. If that surprised you, you aren’t alone. Doyle was largely a non-factor in the game from a passing perspective, pulling in just two receptions for 20 yards. He was used quite a bit in pass protection.One area of some concern is a look at the total offensive snaps. Last week there were 82. This week? 61. The Colts have to gain a level of consistency sustaining longer drives.Eric Ebron was in on just 17 snaps in this game. I cannot explain this. Ebron has caught 7 of 8 targets for 77 yards and two touchdowns through two games. Reich is too smart a coach to not involve Ebron in the game, so I have to assume that it has a lot to do with helping the offensive line. Hopefully if we get Castonzo back healthy Youth Braden Smith Jersey
, Ebron’s involvement will increase.Marlon Mack had 18 offensive snaps compared with 24 for the rookies Hines and Wilkins. Based on what I saw, he looked like a guy who wasn’t completely healthy, and lacked the burst and explosiveness that make him a real threat.

That is great to see.Despite both Hooker and Geathers playing all the defensive snaps, Matthias Farley still managed to get in on 29 snaps himself. That’s a little surprising, but definitely a smart move. It’ll take watching the All-22 for me to see exactly what role Farley played, but getting those three on the field together makes sense. Jihad Ward got in on 34 defensive snaps despite just being brought up from the practice squad. This probably had to do with Ridgeway leaving the game early http://www.authenticsindianapoliscolts.com/cheap-jabaal-sheard-jersey
, but given that Ward got a sack in that short time, it is notable.Pierre Desir was on the field for 56 defensive snaps this week, which is 56 more than last week. With Quincy Wilson in concussion protocol and dealing with a broken hand, we might see Desir getting more snaps going forward as well.There were 5 defensive players who played on every defensive snap. 4 of them are first or second year players, and they took part in an impressive defensive performance.Special Teams#PlayerPositionOffensive SnapsPercentDefensive SnapsPercentSpecial Teams SnapsPercent#PlayerPositionOffensive SnapsPercentDefensive SnapsPercentSpecial Teams SnapsPercentInjury Update: Colts place RG Matt Slauson on IR, sign OL Evan Boehm The Indianapolis Colts will be without one of it’s key pieces on the offensive line for the foreseeable future. The Colts announced they have placed starting right guard Matt Slauson on injured reserve and signed offensive lineman Evan Boehm from the Los Angeles Rams practice squad. The loss of Slauson is another blow to a unit that is already dealing with several issues. The Colts have yet to see the debut of starting left tackle Anthony Castonzo, who has been dealing with hamstring injury for the last couple of months. The team also lost J’Marcus Webb after Week 1 to a knee injury. Joe Haeg would fill the void at right tackle White Joe Haeg Jersey
, but the versatile lineman suffered an ankle injury against the Philadelphia Eagles and found himself on IR as well. Denzelle Good has also missed time due to injuries and personal reasons. Mark Glowinski, Braden Smith, and Le’Raven Clark are all candidates to start at right guard. Smith had an impressive outing against the Patriots as the starting right tackle, so it will interesting to see who Frank Reich will go with — especially if Castonzo is still not in the lineup. In 2017, Boehm played in 15 games for the Cardinals with eight starts at right guard. As a rookie in 2016, he saw action in all 16 games and started the season finale at right guard.
