- Indianapolis Colts
Rookie class, the gift that keeps on giving
While Christmas is still two days away, it's safe to say that the Indianapolis Colts figure that they've received most of their gifts already.
When it comes to the Colts' 2012 rookie class, the team has certainly gotten much more than they may have thought possible. Of the 10 players selected in last spring's draft, five -- quarterback Andrew Luck, running back Vick Ballard, tight ends Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener, and wide receiver T.Y. Hilton -- have either won jobs as starters or have received substantial playing time.
Colts try to get healthy vs. Chiefs
A dinged up Indianapolis Colts’ defense will face a Kansas City squad that could provide a good test Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium.
Yes, the Chiefs are 2-12 and failed to score in last week’s 15-0 AFC West road loss to Oakland. But Kansas City does have a pretty good running back trio in Jamaal Charles, Shaun Draughn and Peyton Hillis.
